I kind of think that more companies, aka Apple, would take note from Nokia and give notification first about patent infringements before suing. I don't understand how Asus is infringing on the patents relating to standard IEEE WiFi 802.11 when they make laptops and other tablets that use IEEE WiFi 802.11.

Why do this now? Asus has released multiple tablets already. I don't recall Nokia crying about patents with the Transformer or Transformer Prime. Of all things for WiFi. I'm pretty sure by now that should fall under FRAND. Are they just now reacting to the rotten Apple and the little green robot burying their OS? Blame the American consumer for your failure.

maybe this is specific to Google, as Asus is only the chosen OEM for the Nexus.. So it is directed at Google, who has not paid for the licence, but in the process Asus also gets involved since they know that Google should pay for the licence but didn't pay instead..

We all know they won't sue google, because in the future they want to make a android phone.

Apple did the same thing. They went to Samung first before suing. Not sure how the author doesn't know that.

WTF where the hell did you pull that this time? Apple just went straight to trying to ban it. Anyway if they did, Samsung wouldn't pay up because they didn't infringe anything, Apple is just trying to juice money out of Samsung just because they're luring customers away.

if Apple was going to be cooperative why do you think their recent talks with Samsung fell through the roof? :P

Talks failed because Samsung knows it can't compete without copying Apple.

Your such an idiot sheep!!! Do you think only apple can make innovation?! You always generalized samsung a copyist. Why your apple products are not free of copying and worst is stealing ideas. I'm sure you'll ask for proof, my answer is same with your answer, google it!!! Apple is afraid of competition not samsung, if samsung can compete why they enter mibile business?! Apple only started 5 years ago, that time samsung already selling phones. Stop writing nonsense comments, you have no other reason to defend your godly apple other than copying. Go back to farm, you need more grass to eat so that your brain can think rightly and with sense.

yeah, i'm sure that's why Apple is trying to get a ban on the Galaxy Nexus using a silly search patent. that really shows the world how much Samsung is really copying Apple.

taco... you keep calling it a "copy" when you keep defining it as nothing like a copy. A "copy" is an identical reproduction of the original with identical quality, which you claim that Samsung cannot make because theirs is so horrible. A "counterfeit", on the other hand, is simply made to look like the original, but is generally not nearly as good or reliable. If you would stop calling it a "copy", and start calling it a "counterfeit" instead, which is actually more consistent with your alleged portrayal, then at least you would stop grating on my nerves so much, and although you would still be disagreed with by many here, at least you could be better equipped to actually make your own case a little more sensibly. The other thing is that you would be better served by asking for criminal legal action over the "counterfeiting", rather than money suits over "copying", which you and gallito say are worthless to Apple because they already have soooooo much money...

You can't say I never tried to help you out here...

Some of you all are idiots. Nokia had these patents for years and companies did fair payments. Asus got the rush job for the nexus tablet and plainly forgot to cross there "T"s and dot there "I"s. They wil pay but the truth of the matter if you do your homework is that Samsung got the job originally but Google got scared and went a different way with it since apple has no beef with Asus. If I were any company I would wake up and notice Google only plays with the winning team until they max them out on profit.

yeah, it probably does on tech blogs but i wouldn't say that Google couldn't tie their shoes without wondering what Apple would do.

nah, Nokia would've been crushed by the weight of the other OEMs. with WP they can find a nice comfort zone to recover from the last few years in.
