It will be interesting to find out why Huawei has been dropped from the suit. Could it be that they've been dealt in on the side of Rockstar? I have, for some time, argued that Rockstar is all about subduing those who make software open and free, and destroying competitive situations in the mobile industry. Apple, Microsoft, and BlackBerry are all quite unified in their quest to bottle up and control Android (and Linux in general). Ericsson is in it for control of the networking technologies. The weird one for me was always Sony - how did they get mixed up in this? Well, they have a lot of responsibility for modern media codecs, and they are a great landing place for Android to end up, if the consortium can strip it from Google.
