Google started its Android efforts back in 2007. It partnered with several industry bigwigs for developing Android. The main driving force of Android at the time of launch was its open source,its free. Google combined its services into single package starting from Google Search, Maps, Mail, etc. Google said Android is based on Linux and it also supports Java language. Three years after the announcements Android have become formidable force in Mobile Operating System with about 25% with support from phone manufacturers such as HTC,Motorola,Sony Ericsson,Samsung,LG. Apple which was a leader in mobile space a year before first sued HTC for infringing its patents in phones powered by Windows Mobile and Android. Of 9 patents 7 were on Android alone and 2 on both the OS’s. Microsoft came to rescue HTC by licensing its patents to it. After some months as Sun was acquired by Oracle,Oracle sued Google for infringing its Java related patents.And now its Microsoft’s turn. Motorola which was once a Windows Mobile manufacturer now have turned into Android manufacturer. So Microsoft’s target was clear. What these companies want to tell about Android..Its below..
We have a responsibility to our customers, partners, and shareholders to safeguard the billions of dollars we invest each year in bringing innovative software products and services to market. Motorola needs to stop its infringement of our patented inventions in its Android smartphones.Our action today merely seeks to ensure respect for our intellectual property rights infringed by Android devices; and judging by the recent actions by Apple and Oracle, we are not alone in this respect.
“We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.”
"In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement,"
I’m expecting Motorola Droid powered by Windows Phone 7..
