Google bids $900 million for 6,000 Nortel telecom patents

ZDnet - Nortel said that it plans to sell all of its remaining patents and applications for $900 million to Google unless a better bid emerges.

With the move, Google would get about 6,000 patents covering wired, wireless and digital communications technologies. The big question is what will Google do with all of these patents. The short answer is that some of these patents will be used for Android—and its defense from the likes of Oracle.
