+ - Phone Patent Battle Hurts Millions of Consumers->

Submitted by

CorinneI writes "The patent battle, brewing since May 2005 when Broadcom Corp. filed suit against Qualcomm for infringing upon 10 Broadcom patents related to wired and wireless communications, has resulted in a International Trade Commission's decision to ban the import of new models of cell phones containing Qualcomm 3G broadband chipsets. This strikes a serious blow to consumers hoping to buy any one of Verizon's and Sprint's high-speed models and many AT&T phones. Collateral damage from this legal dirty bomb will hit Motorola, Samsung, LG, and HTC, all of whom use some Qualcomm components."
