Nokia is doing it so that Google will buy them out. It would be cheaper for Google.

Why? Google already has Motorola. I'm surprised the Nexus 7 wasn't made by them.

These Patent Wars are so exciting!

Could somebody more interested in the finer workings of the world explain how it is that we have hundreds of car manufacturers building mostly the same product and yet we desire to have as few cutting-edge technologists building our computing wares? I mean what the fark, is Pepsi guilty of violating Coca-Cola's copyright or is everyone allowed to build a tablet and a phone and the attendant software??

The deal didn't close in time. Probably the next round of Nexus devices...

Put them all in a big banquet hall catered by taco bell. No one leaves until the licensing agreements are worked out. I've had it with all the patent horseshiat from all of them.

Fark it all....I love my Nexus.

I find this case rather interesting. They claim Asus hasn't licensed the patents from them... but this isn't Asus' first wifi-enabled device. Hell, it's not even their first tablet. Why wait until now to go after them?

Wouldn't this be where Google pulls out all the patents that Motorola has?

Anybody else going to go ahead and spring for the $250 model?

Seriously looking forward to this tablet. "Cheap" enough to use at work, but not so cheap that it's a pile of crap. Won't go near the Kindle Fire, so this looks to be a no-brainer.

I read an article today talking about how Google is teaming up with Samsung to take on Apple in court. As long as I get my Galaxy S III next week, nothing else matters.

Apple... Every time I hear about Apple suing their competitors it makes them look like a bunch of conniving wimps.

Microsoft's telephony hardware division is doing something in the hopes that a competitor will buy them. WUT?

Same with me and my Nexus S 4G.. I seriously don't understand why anyone buys carrier and manufacture supported phones.. Once you go Nexus it's like a breath of fresh air.

My Nexus 4G came with Gingerbread, got upgraded to ICS, and is now also getting Jellybean in a few weeks. The Nexus S line is 18months old.

Meanwhile.. My Galaxy Tab 10.1 (supported by Samsung) is still officially on Honeycomb and the normal lying and carrot dangling bullshiat by Samsung about an ICS update for it which many are doubting will never actually come and for a fact we will probably NEVER get Jellybean officially. The Galaxy Tab is 12 months old.

I'd love to hear the details around this patent, I mean can Nokia sue anyone putting out a device that works on wifi now?

Nah. At least, not for the first one. I preordered the $199 version. I love my Nexus phone enough that I'm willing to give Google the benefit of the doubt and try it. We'll see.

/Hoping for CM9 for Nexus 7 soon

You can pretty much guarantee any Nexus device will get on the CM9 train with the quickness.

Cm9 for a Nexus 7? You'll get 10 for that one. I personally love 9 on my touchpad and can't wait for 10.

I'm sure you'll be advised to root it and install Cyanogen or similar, which is functionally the same as "you should submit a patch" that you see in the FOSS dev community. Both statements are about as useful as a chocolate tea pot to an end user.

Personally, I love my Kindle Fire. It took a couple hours to get it set up just perfectly but now that I'm not using any of the built-in software, it's super awesome.

I already rooted it the first day I bought it and currently have CM9 on it but the maintainer has to work around hardware on a device without official drivers for it etc.. For instance, no functional camera so Skype etc isn't possible on it until Samsung release an official ICS build the CM9 team can yank camera drivers out of it.

I appreciate your in-depth commentary which has elucidated all facts relevant to my original request and which clarifies everything nothing.

VMware ThinApp is pretty cool. I just thought I'd stick that in there.

Don't be silly subby, they can easily Bing the information they're looking for.

Umm.. Asus is a board manufacturer, not a chip fabricator, and thus buys their wifi implementations from other people. The only way this can have teeth is if the patent in question is being infringed in software.

(Or Asus started fabbing their own wifi chips..)

Yep, although I'd say you aren't the typical end user. Oddly enough though, if the whargarble of some is to be believed your camera works, after all Android is open source... you must of brought an iPad and mean iOS.

All snark aside: Binary blob drivers are a bad thing. You've just discovered the reason why.
