Google pledges to back Android manufacturers against lawsuitsApple has been rather relentless in their pursuit against their competitors in the smartphone business – Android. They have chased Samsung pretty much all over the world, and have handed out lawsuits to both HTC and Motorola as well. The good news for Android manufacturers is that Google’s Eric Schmidt has stepped forward and affirmed that Google will be lending their support to their partners who are, or who will be, embroiled in lawsuits.

“We tell our partners, including the ones here in Taiwan, we will support them. For example we have been supporting HTC in its dispute with Apple because we think that the Apple thing is not correct,”

This does not come as a surprise as Google has tossed HTC some patents their way in a legal battle against Apple, in hopes that said patents will lend HTC some credence and ammunition in their fight. With Apple showing no signs of slowing down in their lawsuits, manufacturers probably needed to hear this from Google themselves as a sign of reassurance that Google will have their back.
