Go Small Guys!

If the main contributors are smaller start-ups and they can make it through the production ramp, they may be able to avoid being swollowed up since the bigger companies through fear of litigation that smaller companies won't as likely suffer because they don't have enough money to justify a suite.  Probably means the products cost a bit more,  but it would be fun to watch.

Patent wars

Charles, I think you hit this spot on.  While both Apple and Samsung had some wins and losses in the patent wars over the "phone" and related technologies, I think it's recognized that Apple came out ahead, at least in litigation.

Going into the next phase, with both companies clearly gearing up in wearables, I think Samsung in particular is poised to try and leverage this opportunity to aggressively defend and prosecute Apple, determined this time to come out ahead.  With today's announcement of the Gear 2, Neo and Fit, they are moving fast and ahead of Apple.  Of course, we've all read about Apple hiring wearables, health and fitness experts like they are going out of style.

Both companies are purportedly purchasing smaller patent holders and licensing various patents ahead of future litigation in the space.  I think it's a fantastic opportunity around the board for those IP holders and innovaters in the space.  

Definitely an exciting area to watch...

This means big patent war like Apple and Samsung is on the way. But one way its good, the more patent issues gets attention the more new technology would come in the market. And yes the first to invent must always get the credit not the first to tell.
