Ok, but can someone translate for the basic user what this agreement can bring in the close and far future? If it means something of course.
Not sure what the point of this is now? Microsoft already got just about every android oem under a lock and they are all paying them some kind of money. Apple already made their point and won in the courts and won even bigger by racking above 90% of the industry profits. Where was this between 2010-2013 when it mattered? As far as I am concern this is all symbolic and mean squat, just like their AUA (Android update alliance)? Does anyone remember that? I do because it's the reason I no longer have android as my daily driver.
Cool idea! This is what can push the boundaries of smartphones. But seriously, why is Sony not in on this?!
king_naughty, 04 Apr 2017I agree. hahahalol starmobile? cloudfone? ZH&K? why aren't they here?
Captain Marvelous, 04 Apr 2017How bout Cherry Mobile? MyPhone? O+? SKK and other Unitop Phone Brands?I agree. hahaha
I don't remember the last time there was a patent conflict involving two Android OEMs.
Similar to Aspros, I think this will serve to make the Android ecosystem as a whole, more resistant to suits by Apple.
Wouldn't it be more awesome if the headlines reads "Google and major Android phone makers gather in an agreement of extending longer update support."
This is so futile, all the war related patterns involve Apple, they have a dedicated branch of lowers that actually creat great profit from this and apparently ties in high placed gvr US based officials, so they can ensure that their claims, will bring cash, regardless of their fairness. Maybe this pax will help them defend from the parasitic and agressive policies of Apple and make them harder targets, instead of being attacked one by one...
How bout Cherry Mobile? MyPhone? O+? SKK and other Unitop Phone Brands?
hope its for real
..... war , what is it good for huh! . i dnt see any reason why other OEM shouldnt follow. ..... samsung just patents everything bcz they paid hundreds of millions for stupid patents ,like swipe to unlock recently ,i bet they would choose peice anytime .... but as for apple goes , us corts and law just suits them well and they just suit any one to bankrupt if they try to compete and their own customers like the idea of apple claiming innovation so i dnt see them joining the peace pact anytime .
Does this mean,The MST method of payment (patented by Samsung for Samsung pay) can be now integrated into android pay?
Apple is greatest patent troll there is. Google is like a Jedi that wants peace and prosperity.
"They will be able to exchange patents without charging each other and will hopefully, bring patent peace in the smartphone world."
You hear that, Apple! We want 'PEACE'! Rub this agreement on Apple face.
