Two consortiums are bidding on Eastman Kodak's (EKDKQ.PK) 1,100 patents, the WSJ reports. One features Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), and patent troll Intellectual Ventures. Another features Android partners Google (GOOG), Samsung (SSNLF.PK), LG, and HTC, along with RPX (RPXC). Bids are due on Monday. The report comes after the ITC dismissed a Kodak suit related to an image-preview patent, and Apple lost a bid to move a separate Kodak suit out of bankruptcy court.
