The patent in question pertains to push notification technology found in the Google Cloud Messaging and Android Cloud to Device Messaging services, which are encompassed within Android smartphones and tablets. The notifications cover apps such as Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Google was found guilty on all five claims made by SimpleAir. The penalty phase of the trial concluded this week. Google hoped to pay only $6 million, while SimpleAir sought $125 million. A jury awarded SimpleAir $85 million.
