As the mobile patent wars heat up, Google is arming itself with just about anything it can find, borrow or buy.  The latest case for the latter is the $4.9 million pick up of the assets of Israeli mobile device maker Modu.  From the release, it isn’t certain which patents Google gets but the thinking is spending $5 million now will save more than $5M later in patent damages.

Google had originally bid $2M for the patents.
