    Do you expect that we can see HP start to break out its Patent lawyers and sue some of the boys out there... obviously after the next device?

    I would say no.

    I'm assuming you're referring to the fact that pretty much every aspect of the smartphone market was patented by Palm a long time ago, which means practically every smart phone maker in the world owes them royalties.

    The problem is that Palm never defended their patents. It's one thing if they were never aware that their patents were being infringed, but we're talking about such wide spread infringement in the marketplace for so many years that Palm has effectively lost their right to guard their patents.

    People make jokes when they see things like the royalties motorola has to pay to George Lucas because they called their phone the "droid," but these things happen because patents are "all or nothing." You actively protect them, or you lose the right to.

    so what was the whole deal than with everyone claiming that palm (at buyout time) was only worth the value of their patents... according to you , they would be worthless anyway

    Thats A Good Question. I Dont Think Palm Should Sue For ALL Their Patents, But Maybe Just The Ones That Would Really Hurt The Competition

    traditionally HP hasn't been everly aggressive in suing people. However they don't mess around in defending themselves, or trading license rights to stay oit of court. Palm gives them major strength for both.

    of course they will go after violators if they can't settle things peacably.

    i believe once the new device launches we will see HP rolling up its sleeves against all fruit, portholes and possibly robots alike...

    I think that the only thing really stopping palm was resources.. i can almost guarantee that as soon as HP acquired palm.. all their patent lawyers started combing the cob weby files of palm to see where they have the most power to enforce royalties..
