Software patents drive me bonkers, but it’s an interesting thought: did Samsung just pay $1B to become the #2 device manufacturer? At the levels that these guys are playing at, that’s probably cheaper than authentically growing to that position.

It makes me wonder if Samsung intentionally crossed that line knowing that it’s costs, while steep, would ultimately be less expensive in the long run. Or are they just clumsy copycats that lucked out?
