B&N will hardly "get Google to come on too." With 500-odd patents, most of them just search-related, Google is too weak to have an impact in such a dispute.
Yesterday's lawsuits (a federal suit and an ITC complaint) take the number of Android-related patent lawsuits up to 37. If Google had the ability to show some authority with its own patents, many of those would never have been filed in the first place.
