Submission + - Phone Patent Battle Hurts Millions of Consumers (pcmag.com)

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."

Veni, Vidi, VISA: I came, I saw, I did a little shopping.
