Google This I didn't expect. While we've had individual people high up Google's chain of command speak out, there wasn't yet any form of official response to the patent shenanigans surrounding Android. For the first time, the company has posted on the official Google Blog about the issue, and the company is clear. Several companies, including Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle, are working together to attack Android through patents. Google is not going to sit back and take it, though. Update: Stuff just got real. Popcorn! Or better yet, coffee!

"Every product available for sale builds upon technology that preceded it."

"Builds upon" and "duplicates" are two different concepts. The patent system is designed to prevent one company from doing the innovating and all the others merely duplicating those innovations.

No one had a phone like the iPhone when it was introduced.

No one? I had one better, it was 2 years old and had native installable apps… SE p910i
