RevWaldo writes “According to the Wall Street Journal, the estate of Philip K. Dick says the name of Google’s new smartphone infringes on the famous character name from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Isa Dick Hackett, a daughter of Mr. Dick, states Google has its ‘Android system, and now they are naming a phone “Nexus One.” It’s not lost on the people who are somewhat familiar with this novel… Our legal team is dealing head-on with this.’”
