That sounds interesting. This is perhaps the 2nd time I hear a good omen for Microsoft and its upcoming Windows 8 OS for mobile phones.
Didn’t thought before that this patent’s fight between Apple and Samsung would benefit a 3rd and this being Microsoft.
Your arguments seem to be accurate. Now US operators will want not to buy the Android phones which might infringe Apple’s patents. But, I think the lawsuit involved the physical design also right? So it’s not only Android based phones perhaps but any phone that look very iphone-ish.
But after all this… is Microsoft free of sin? Is the Windows 8 OS free of patent infringement over the iPhone’s GUI?
