Too bad they can't be sued by Android! If not Microsoft should prepare for a lawsuit. This is like a direct copy of android!

Google has the patent and can sue if they want to but so far they vow to use their patent in a defensive manner. But Microsoft and their scoogle campaign might just be it.

yep google is above all aggressive moves... they would never gut a legendary company and sell the hardware to a foreign company... they are above being a patent troll

They sold a Motorola brands and keep all the patents. Every one is happy except a wp fanboy. I wonder why?

And no one think Google is above all aggressive move either. We just never seem it yet but never say never either.

Who says "everyone is happy" about Motorola being sold to China?

Speak for yourself.

As I've said before, Google have never REALLY invented anything. Perhaps Search is their only REAL innovation. The rest, including Android OS, have been bought because of their huge pile of cash.

Okay... So tell me one thing Google has INVENTED since their existence. And don't say Search, cuz they only bettered it and didn't invent it.

In that case "no one" has invented anything...
Everyone has only improved upon an existing tech...
-----------------------------------------
If you search you can find a predecessor to "everything" you claim Nokia/Apple/Google/Intel/MS/Sony/Samsung etc have created...
---------------------------------------------
For your kind info, several people who worked at Nokia, Samsung, Apple, Qualcomm have also worked at Google and vice-versa... These people are real inventors and not the "company".. These people who created/invented new tech, do own some of the tech they created.. They can surely use them in their projects if its not company's property (aka patent).... Stop talking like a child/ fanboy...

What? Are you high or something? MS created the best Desktop OS i.e Windows which has been leading the PC market for decades.

The question here is....did they invented the desktop OS first??? No...
According to your logic google invented the best mobile OS..that is dominating smartphone world...
Btw windows is not the best OS...it's the worst OS with best apps...

"windows is not the best OS...it's the worst OS with best apps..." the same can be applied to Android. And Google didn't create Android, they bought the company which created the OS and hence, it became a Google product. Get your facts right before you venture out here to troll.

Have you heard of Mac OS which existed before Windows??? If I take your analogy, then MS copied Apple...

That's why M$ is alone now, with a big groups of enemies.

They are a convicted Monopolist. Proved that they could not be trusted.

You sure know nothing about the BS you're spewing, buddy. Sure they bought Android but they had to rewrite it from scratch after the launch of the iphone to compete with apple.

And sorry but Google has been somehow more innovative than MS during the past years. Instead of wasting money on bashing competitiors, they do actually work their ass off to bring innovation.
You and your delusional buddies should come out of your caves and see what's happening in the real world sometimes.
Ever heard of Google X?
Here you go!

I remember once balmer said android balantly copied ios..but we made unique OS...if this is not a copy then what??? Add Quick toggles to the equation...
I wouldn't say this if ms and thier fanboys din talk about all that android copy stuff...
Because i know that is how technology evolves...
But they were like android is copy cat bla bla..so this stuff

What for? Such features existed similarly on Windows taskbar. And that was before the first Android phone got to see the light of day.

Google better hurry up and sue... Cause I wouldn't be surprised if Apple sued them first... Apple the KING of suers.
