Not many of us saw this coming and as shocking as it might sound, it still appears to be quite exhilarating that the two technology giants are coming together and we sure know that the result of this is going to be extraordinary. That’s right we are talking about the new partnership of Samsung and Google which will allow both the companies to have an integrated patent portfolio which they will share. With this we are not only looking forward to some exciting products as a result of this outcome but we are anxiously waiting for what this ten year contract will bring about.
This partnership is going to revolve around not only the current patents of both the companies but also the ones to come in the future.Google and Samsung are joining hands to work together in diverse areas of newer emerging technologies and together they will exploit different business areas. The ten year duration of the contract speaks a lot for the partnership and we should not be expecting some new mobile devices alone but these new business areas are going to include the home appliances as well.
This fact is supported by Google’s acquisition of Nest which took place recently and it clearly shows how Google is interested to explore this new area and there was no better way to do this since Samsung is already a big giant in this home appliance field. If it was to be said that these two companies are quite contented with their partnership, it wouldn’t come as a surprise at all.
