Google decided it should say something about the largest seller of Android widgets getting its head handed to it by an American jury Friday. It said:
"The court of appeals will review both infringement and the validity of the patent claims. Most of these don't relate to the core Android operating system, and several are being re-examined by the US Patent Office. The mobile industry is moving fast and all players - including newcomers - are building upon ideas that have been around for decades. We work with our partners to give consumers innovative and affordable products, and we don't want anything to limit that."
Kara Swisher over at All Things Digital offers a translation "for those who don't speak passive-aggressive." She said what Google's really saying is:
"Good lord, let's hope Samsung wins on appeal, because if Apple prevails it might be coming for us next. We hope our massive patent-buying splurge in mobile will protect us, but the there-is-nothing-new-under-the-sun defense is our fallback position.
"But, let us reiterate: Good lord."
