Nokia Patent Might Be The Reason Why The Multiple User Feature On Android 4.2 Is Not Supported By Mobile Phones

On Monday Google officially announce the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 and those two new nexus devices are the first tablet and phone to run the latest version of android, Android 4.2. Android 4.2 brings some totally new features to android and one of the feature is the multiple user features which allows your tablet to have multiple user support, so you can share your tablet amongst few people. This feature in particular only works on android tablets running android 4.2 so the phone is left without this feature. But there could be a logical explanation behind this. This might be because of Nokia's patent which Google might infringe in adding the multiple user support on mobile devices. 
A mobile telephone is designed to be used by several different end-users at different times. A first end-user can alter the mobile telephone so that it operates in a manner specific to that first end-user and a subsequent end-user can alter the mobile telephone so that it operates in a manner specific to that subsequent end-user; each end-user has only to respond to prompts displayed on a screen in order to alter the mobile telephone so that it operates in a manner specific to that end-user.
But this problem can be solved by Google paying royalties to Nokia like what Apple did so they can use the huge library of patents Nokia owns
