同一天, Unwired Planet 也針對 Android 作業系統以不相同的系爭專利向 Google 提告,請參閱本網站前期報導 【 Unwired Planet 控告Google Android 侵權

Unwired Planet 成立於 1994 年,是行動網路技術的先驅者。該公司發明許多能讓行動裝置連接至網路的相關技術,例如:無線應用協定 (Wireless Application Protocol, WAP) 。最初, Unwired Planet 關注 “ 網際網路隨身帶 ” (internet-in-your-pocket) 的概念,就如本案所述各項專利技術內容。在當時,幾乎沒有科技公司對這類的技術有興趣。但 Unwired Planet 卻一直堅持下去,將瀏覽器功能內建到電話中;一直到 1996 年,開始與 AT&T 合作開發 ( 當時簽約時的公司名稱是 Libris ,但在 1994 年改名為 Unwired Planet) 。

隨後在 1997 年, Unwired Planet 開始積極推動全球標準,與 Ericsson 、 Motorola 、 Nokia 共同在 1997 年發起 WAP 論壇,共同為無線上網制定統一的規格,也就是 WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) 。到 2001 年止,已經有超過 500 家成員參與 WAP 論壇。 Unwired Planet 也從 1999 年開始發行股票,並改名為 Phone.com ,專注於各式無線裝置提供瀏覽器軟體及工具,以便能成功連接到網路,例如: Up.Mail 、 Up.Organizer 、 Up.Web 、 Up.Browser 與 Up.Smart 、 … 等等產品。 1999 年 8 月,全球已經有 31 個網路營運商向 Unwired Planet 取得授權;也因此,美國今日 (USA Today) 稱 Phone.com 為 “ 無線網路中的關鍵 ” (the linchpin for the wireless internet) ,並說它發明的各項產品撼動當時將近 80% 可以上網的電話市場。到了 2000 年, Phone.com 併購 Software.com ,並成立 Openware Systems 。 2012 年又進行公司重整,將非核心業務轉售出去,並將部分業務轉出成立 Openwave Mobility, Inc. 公司,並且與 Unwired Planet 皆轉型為具研究型的專利授權公司 (NPE) 。

Openwave Systems 在 2011 年 8 月 30 日於美國德拉威爾地方法院及美國 ITC 分別控告 APPLE 及 RIM ,關於行動上網技術之專利侵權訴訟,並要求支付賠償金。不論是 Openwave Systems 或是改名後 Unwired Planet ,在這三次訴訟共拿出 25 項具攻擊性專利砲打國際大廠,由此可見,它的專利能量非一般。請參考本網站前期文章 【 Openwave 在美控告APPLE 及RIM 侵犯行動裝置技術 】 (1586 字;表 3)
