    Not as many as you might think: http://i.imgur.com/SdPRbl.jpg

    Very interesting graph. If it's about patents then I'd expect more acquisitions to follow, as that piece of raw data suggests it's nothing of the sort.

    Motorola had fleeting success with the RAZR line but I don't think much of their products other than that. Xoom was a failure as well.
