These days, I see mostly people getting excited every time a court document comes out. The infringement case could take years to resolve yet it seems to be the big talk around here these days... but what about the D2P phone? There sure was much excitement about it a few years back and now no one talks about it. PRKR said that 2010 was going to be a "transformational year" and that PRKR was going to be producing D2P phones. In 2009, PRKR issued a press release that they had build a D2P phone which surpassed performance specifications. Yet, we're in 2013 and I see no D2P phone. Hmmm... I just don't get it. Has PRKR decided not to build it despite coming so far and building an alleged production ready phone? Surely, to pay all their attorney's fees, they need a solid way to generate revenue.
I understand about the 2 decades of lies and misappropriation - but how is that relevant to the patent suit? And BTW this case will not take "years" to be resolve. It will be all over by this time next year - if not sooner.
This discussion reminds me of what they used to say about Saddam Hussein - " Is Iraq the way it is becasue Saddam is the way he is, or is Saddam the way he is because Iraq is the way it is?"
We started a war thinking the first part and came to realize that the second part is true. So, is Parkervision is the way it is because Qualcomm stole it designs and its markets, or is Parkervisions lack of success because Jeff Parker and his crew are the way they are? We shall see shortly.
I somewhat agree with you. The patent case however will and must reveal the truth. After all isn't that what our courts are there for, to find the truth? In time, the truth will be revealed. Good or bad.
