On another level, trying to ban Windows 7? You're telling me MoMo is 100% Mac and Linux in their enterprise setup?
But that wasn’t all for today. Another report featured Nokia’s new patent assault against HTC, RIM and Viewsonic for infringement on 45 patents in their portfolio. They’ve already been successful once in suing Apple into a licensing deal for the iPhone, but details on which 45 patents have yet to be released at the time of my writing this. Now this one I can sort of understand. It looks like they’re trying to mitigate some financial hits with some additional revenue streams until the Lumia becomes more widely popular. So while this one didn’t strike a nerve as badly, it still made me shake my head a little.
It just seems to me that the undeniable amount of effort (not to mention cash money) funneled into patent assaults could be redirected into more product development. There’s a lot of really basic things the mobile world has yet to figure out, and instead of coming up with technologies for things like more efficient batteries. Put more effort into putting quality products into the hands of the consumers, not quality money into the hands of your lawyers. Think about the good of the game.
