There have been some interesting bits of news, in the Android space, over the last couple days.

First of all, the long-rumored Amazon Android Appstore stumbled into existence as it appeared, disappeared and then, finally, re-appeared.  The fact that Amazon is calling it an “Appstore” and not an “App Store” is, apparently, insufficient distinction to placate Apple.  They are suing.

Microsoft is also suing.  They’re suing Barnes and Noble over its Android-based Nook.  Probably more interesting than a forum of patent trolls from Redmond, Linus Torvalds is not interested in suing.  Towards the end of this article he expresses his dis-interest in concerns that Android’s Bionic library may violate the GPL.

Saving the best for last, there’s a really smart article from Andreas Constantinou on how to harness the Android explosion.
