Microsoft is looking to take a fresh stab at the Android OS — this time without a new device. Microsoft has filed a lawsuit against Barnes & Noble, Foxconn and Inventec over patents that are allegedly violated within the Android OS associated with the Nook Color. The patent issues center around Microsoft’s claims that the Android OS uses “natural ways of interacting with devices by tabbing through various screens to find the information they need; surfing the Web more quickly, and interacting with documents and e-books.” As for Microsoft, they have attempted to reach an agreement with the other parties in the past to no avail.
