The US needs to make some changes to patent law. Buying patents to use against other companies, should not be a exceptable business plan. It's bad for consumers, competition, & innovation. As well as creating artificially, high prices for technology. Then MS would have to focus on making better, more competitive products, 2 make/earn money

This is getting a little out of hand. You mean to tell me I won't be getting my HTC EVO 4G LTE and now the same-thing is going to happen to Motorola phones. Well f**k now were stuck with Craapple and Micro bull crap 8 phones. I'm going back to Flip phones.

The less crap we have on the smartphone market, the better. Believe it or not, they're doing smartphone owners a favor here.

Yeah, because a lack of competition always spells GREAT things for consumers... I'm SURE without Motorola and HTC smartphone prices will stay relatively low, and phone technology will increase at the current break-neck pace...

You're a moron.

If the ITC wants to take the crap off the market. Their first move should be to ban the iphraud.

Sorry, but I don't feel that having my choices limited to wp and ios is by any means a favor.

I'm the type of person who actually enjoys not having a phone that looks like everyone else's.

You may not want to come to the US. You would easily be the target of some type of scam artist.

droidfags? lol oh wp7... always late and a dollar short. droid phones make up over 50% of the smart phone market in most countries, and apple is second. wp7 is a stupid worthless piece of paper weight. and what would microsoft do with 4 billion dollars? make another piece of crap operating system for a phone. ooh or maybe they could put it into bing... which is the exact same thing as google.... oohh or put it into make another video game consuel. windows phone... lol...

Sigh......

As everyone yells and screams about Android makers coming to agreements with MS for the Android devices they sell, this is the result of not talking. MS has been in the software buisness since it's infancy. Of course they will have patents on this kind of thing. There are ways to keep this crap out of court and under control.

I love Motorola. It's patent portfolio and inovations are as long and accomplished as MS. I hate the idea of choice being taken away. Nobody wins here.
