Summary: LG has new Android phone but also a Linux patent deal with Microsoft
Last week, Motorola launched one. Today, it’s LG’s turn.
We have already written about what Samsung's deal with Microsoft may mean to Android and recently we showed what it means to LiMo. It is a similar situation for both because LG chose Android.
…LG made an important mobile move this morning by announcing its first Android phone, the LG-GW620.
Given the patent deal with Microsoft, whenever you buy an LG phone Microsoft will be paid by you for the “Linux” component in this phone. What patents? Nobody knows. It’s just racketeering, so that’s the idea. Carry on boycotting LG to stave off similar deals, preventing them from being signed. █
