    • Lenovo (LNVGY) is buying 21 patent families from Unwired Planet (UPIP), including ones related 3G and 4G networks.
    • The deal gives Lenovo, now the world's #5 smartphone vendor (could be #3 after the Motorola Mobility deal closes), more negotiating leverage in cross-licensing deals.
    • Unwired Planet says it will still have 2.5K issued and pending patents once the deal closes. The company's market cap was only $142.4M as of today's close.
    • CC at 8:30AM ET tomorrow.

    Openwave (OPWV) +11.4% following a Wedbush note speculating "patent troll" Acacia Research (ACTG) might soon make a bid for the wireless IP holder. The firm notes Acacia recently raised $225M in a stock offering, and has said it's exploring a major acquisition. Openwave, which recently adopted a poison pill, surged in November after striking a patent licensing deal with Microsoft.
