Sources confirm to WSJ that Intel (INTC) joins Apple (AAPL), Ericsson (ERIC) and RPX (RPXC) in competing for Nortel's 6,000 patents and patent applications against Google's (GOOG) $900M stalking-horse bid, which carries a $25M breakup fee if Google loses. The auction's now on June 27. Probably not involved in any of the joint bids: RIMM (-20.8%), whose fate may match up with Nortel's.
