Samsung Mobile's head, JK Shin, unveiled the Galaxy Note II in Korea yesterday, and said he is meeting with Google's Eric Schmidt to discuss a joint strategy for patent defense against Apple.
I will meet Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt on Thursday in Seoul," said Shin, but declined to give any further comments on what the two might be coming up with. Google's exec is down in Korea to introduce the Nexus 7 tablet, and, apparently, meet with Samsung to talk shop."

- Display 5.5" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1600 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3100 mAh(16h 3G talk time)

They just passed a patent reform where anyone can fight a patent, all they need to do is gather the previous art and make the case. Some of Apple's patents are going to get overturned, like the rectangle with rounded corners. http://www.wired.com/threatlev

Crowd-sourcing can be a double-edged sword. The patent applications that manage to get through the crowd-sourcing effort would seem to be harder to defend against, making for more aggressive enforcement. I wonder how the examiners will use the new resource? The biggest risk would seem to be in crowd-sourcing not understanding the application and delaying/complicating the application process. I imagine there will be more appeals of final rejections than before. Interesting article. Thanks for the link.

Cant wait for the note 2 to hit the states. This will be a amazing device. Also glad to see samsung taking a proactive approach to fend off the rotten fruit company. They have caused enough headache already.

JK is not the prophet that needs to be with Eric. It should be Peter and HT Chou who will defeat apple. They started the android game, they will progress and lead it into a better future... Nexus One

I think Samsung, Google, htc, nokia, microsoft etc need to get together to take down apple. Apple is the hitler of the mobile phone industry. They want a single phone owned by all and want to control how you use it
