These are all good questions, chanj. But how effective Motorola Mobility's patent portfolio may become for "protecting the future of Android" still remains to be seen in my opinion.

I agree - it is all about the patents - otherwise why would Google increase its employee base by 60% and get into the dog eat dog world of mobile phone manufacturing?

All about the patent... would the other Android smartphone vendors see the same? Where will Android smartphone go in the future? Will Google become a smartphone vendor in addition to supplying Android?

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
