According to recent article in etnews (http://www.etnews.co.kr/news/detail.html?id=201006160208&mc=m_012_00001), Google appears to be preparing a big air strike in smartphone patent lawsuit. In response to the Apple's patent battle against to the Google's Android OS based smatphone (e.g. Apple's ITC complaint against HTC), Google is calling for the 'Andriod Coalition' by asking smartphone patents to major Android smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung and LG.
It is well known that Apple's smatphone patent wall is very thick and strong with more than 200 patents including the famous multi-touch technology (for the smartphone patent landscape, please refer http://techipm-innovationfrontline.blogspot.com/2010/04/smartphone-patents-for-ui-key.html).
Could the Andriod Coalition's patent bomb be strong enough to break the Apple's smatphone patent fortress?
