Intel acquires sizeable patent portfolio

In a press release Monday, Intel announced the acquisition of a variety of wireless patents related to 3G, LTE and 802.11 technologies. The acquisition, though sizeable, seems to have been "business as usual" for both companies involved. There is little indication that this will change Intel's product strategy going forward, but it will give them a boost in patent defense, an increasingly important part of being a consumer tech company.
