Who has the strongest smartphone patents?
Smartphones – we all carry them, and they are rapidly becoming essential to our way of life. But in the background big companies like Apple, Nokia, Motorola etc. are busily enforcing patents against each other.
Research In Motion, developer of the then dominant Blackberry smartphone, was almost forced to shut its US network in early 2006 during a patent dispute. Who will win the current smartphone patent wars? Who has the strongest patents? What areas are being litigated the most?
Ambercite has teamed up with patent attorneys Griffith Hack to apply the newly developed Network Patent Analysis (NPA) patent quality assessment technique to investigate these questions.
The results are available in two forms. A unique visual insignt to the patent wars can be found in the patent landscape "battlefield map", while a white paper helps explain what we did and what we found.

Ambercite and its products including Network Patent Analysis (NPA) and AmberScope analyse patent data using a statistical based approach that is based on available patent citation and ownership data. These outputs are purely mathematical in nature, and do not take into account the personal or professional opinions of any individuals or associates of Ambercite. These outputs are intended to be used as tool to help support further analysis, and should not be used by itself and without professional advice on the relevancy of this data to your unique circumstances. Data should not be relied upon to prove without any further analysis any opinion of the value, patentability, validity, freedom to operate or infringement of any patent, patents or inventions. Users should also be aware that available patent citation data is imperfect, and this will affect the results of this analysis. © Patent Analytics Holding Pty Ltd.
