Submission + - Google to buy 6,000 Nortel patents fo 0.9B (yahoo.com)

fractalspace writes: Nokia couldn't get them. Erricsson managed to buy the business units who created those patents, without the patents. RIM's co-ceo Jim Balsillie went public accusing Nortel of being unpatriotic when their offer was rejected.
These 6000 or so patents, related to Wireless CDMA and LTE technologies, were well preserved and hidden from the prying eyes for more than 2 years during the bankruptcy proceedings of Nortel. And now finally, out of nowhere, along comes Google! I hope they get it.
