Samsung and google teaming up against apple

I just do not see this going as google and samsung may want. I mean if they had this in their pocket the whole time, you would think they would have used it already. If google plans on using the FRAND 3G patent, they will probably get slapped with patent abuse and lose the patents. The FTC are already investigating them for as much.

 

Plus, last time google tried to partner up(HTC), it got thrown out of court.

 

I do not think this will go as Fandroids are hoping it will go.

The last time Google did not own Motorola and its treasure chest of 15k patents.

yes they did.

It got thrown out. And as I said before, Google's main weapon are the FRAND patents that motorola owns for 3G, wifi, etc. Those are patents for standards. They have to license them using fair and non discriminatory terms. And they are the same patents that they have been trying to use again Microsoft and Apple, which are now being investigated by the FTC for patent abuse.

 

As I said, This is not the amazing team up fandroids think it is. it is not like captain planet, and their powers combined are not going to change it. If a patent failed when HTC tried, it will not magically work when samsung uses it.

 

edit: Let me add that I hope I am wrong, because I am sick of these "Patent Wars". Also, I agree with google, that we need to move on to the Innovation Wars.

the patents got thrown out for the way in which they were transferred to htc. it was a legal technicality and did not mean that the patents were useless or invalid. there are specific rules about how someone (htc) can use patents they license / borrow from another entity (google).

 

let's hope google learned from their mistake.

Exactly. Also this time Apple is also going directly after Google and not just an OEM.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
