Qualcomm and Ericsson jaw-jaw

Two companies close to deal over CDMA

Ericsson and Qualcomm are continuing to talk over licensing arguments, following the refusal of the Japanese company two weeks to license its technology. Qualcomm has intellectual property rights on the CDMA mobile phone technology and put its foot down on licensing that technology to a mass of companies which want to establish wide bandwidth CDMA as a global standard. But according to Japanese reports, Ericsson is close to an agreement with Qualcomm which would help put an end to the stalemate. ® Related stories Qualcomm set to cause mobile war
