Google bites back, practically calls Rockstar a patent troll

Just in time to become a rather strange Christmas present, Google has filed a lawsuit against Rockstar, a company that has sued Google and its Android OEM partners over a variety of patents owned by the now bankrupt Nortel Networks. Aside from the legalese saying how its Nexus devices do not infringe on those patents, Google is calling out Rockstar for what it really is: a patent troll.

Sony talks Android 4.3 for the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Xperia Tablet Z

It was a few weeks earlier when Sony announced that Jelly Bean was rolling out to the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra.

Several months ago, the web went a bit nuts about Sony’s QX lenses. Prior to launch, it seemed an improbable feat, getting a true camera lens to wirelessly work with a smartphone. Suspicion gave way to reality, and the QX lenses made their splash at MWC. While a bit jittery and slow, they were a first-run product we’d hoped would see better interaction in the future.

Sony Xperia Z1 f hits Japan with 4.3-inch display and 20MP camera

The slightly smaller version of the Xperia Z1 has arrived for those in Japan. The handset has been dubbed the Sony Xperia Z1 f and it has landed with NTT DoCoMo.

Sticking with the Xperia Z1 f and we learn this handset has a smaller display size but otherwise keeps many of the same specs from the Xperia Z1.
