Qualcomm wins Motorola legal, starts new one

US judge gives summary judgement in Q phone case

The Qualcomm Q phone does not infringe Motorola patents, a US judge has said, in a ruling that could affect future designs of mobile phones. At the same time, Qualcomm expanded its own legal action against Motorola, claiming that three products breach licensing agreements. Judge Napoleon Jones, a San Diego District Court judge, said that Qualcomm's Q phone did not infringe Motorola patents by using a clamshell design similar to the StarTAC mobile family. ®
