Google chairman of the board Eric Schmidt remarked that the company will lend a helping hand to Android phone makers who are hit with litigation over smartphone patents. "We tell our partners...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," said Schmidt. Google will not provide financial assistance to its hardware partners, but instead will offer access to its patents (which is set to grow by as many as 17,000 when Google closes its acquisition of Motorola), as well as advice, expertise, and testimony in court. HTC, Samsung, Motorola, and others are involved in numerous patent disputes with Apple, RIM, and technology licensing firms regarding intellectual property.
