The patents are about radio-te... moreYes, all Android manufacturers have cross-license agreements with Nokia (and each other). The ones with the most R&D on the area (Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola) earn money from their patents; the ones with the least R&D (Samsung, LG, now Apple) pay to use the others' patents. This is how things have always been; Apple just wanted a free ride.

if the n900 was at least 2mm thiner and it's screen is 3mm and had tegra2 as it's cpu,then it would be the smartest smartphone
If I am not mistaken the royalties include iphone AND ipad.Yeah Nokia
Now would everyone just focus on making better smartphones?
Better to say. Now would apple stop to steal technologies and focus on making smartphone(not ipod with call function)?

All quake in your pants, Nokia/Windows is coming at you and you would be so foolish to not even think so. Microsoft never chuck money at something that fails do they? And lets be honest how long can Apple get away with making the same old identical cr@p? It's only a matter of time....
"Now would everyone just focus on making better smartphones?"
Go ahead, be brave and say: Now would Nokia just focus on making better smartphones? I know you wanted to.
