Looks like nowdays buying and selling patents is becoming a business on its own. Sometimes acquisition and mergers happen only for patents. BUt just selling and buying a patent, wonder whether innovation is just a commodity these days.
Although not a household name, many consumers have products with Qualcomm technologies embedded inside. Qualcomm seems to have mastered the process of developing and deploying proprietary patent protected technologies. I hope that they'll be able to use these newly purchased underutilized patents to make more powerful user friendly mobile products.
