Today's e-Reads: AT&T Sues Customers; What the Google-Motorola Deal Means

AT&T sues customers for suing the company over its plans to buy T-Mobile, PC Magazine reports.

Verizon and striking workers trade accusations about sabotage, according to The New York Times.

 

Google's plan to purchase Motorola is more about competing with Apple in the cell phone business than the company is willing to admit, as it instead focuses on the patent trove it gains in the deal, The New York Times says.

Google began talking to Motorola before it became clear that Motorola's patents are a hot item, according to Bloomberg's back story on the deal.

And Bloomberg reports that Samsung and HTC may be hurt by Google's plan because it could give the Internet company a reason to favor its own handsets in subtle ways when it comes to Android offerings.
