Google One company's response to the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung was still missing: Google's. The company has now responded to The Verge, and there's almost a certain bitterness in their language. Not, as you would expect, directed at Apple; no, the bitterness is directed at Samsung. The message Google is sending to other Android OEMs? Stick to stock Android, and you'll have no problems.

What do you mean by that? A keyboard on the back side of a tablet would still work with android. Same with the watch with 200x200 px. They could all use stock, I think.

If you were saying that they would require software changes to be good, then well that's a matter of opinion. I don't think any of them would ever be good. But, they are all permitted by Google and not by Microsoft. Which was the point of my comment: to show extreme examples of diverse devices that would be permitted by google and not by microsoft to make clear the point that google's a more permissive mobile operating system provider even if ui software changes were not permitted.
