A number of companies petitioned the International Trade Commission to suspend the ruling it issued against Qualcomm last week. Among them were phone maker LG, which stands to lose out the most, as well as wireless network operators AT&T and T-Mobile. All three asked the ITC to suspend or drop the ban it levied against certain Qualcomm chips and technologies from entering the U.S. The ban is set to go into place 60 days from the date of the ruling, beginning August 8th.

60 days

So companies have until August 8th to get new phones imported and for sale...

I can't wait to see the deluge of devices pouring into the stores that shouldn't be released yet, then the waves of warranty exchanges that will take place so users can get updated software.

I think Qualcomm and Broadcom should be forced to take a time out and sit in opposite corners for 1 week. Rolling Eyes
yeah i can definitely see a big boom in new releases Smile 60 days is also a good amount of time for them to search for a new manufacturer for their 3g cards.

About time

I was wondering how much longer was going to be before someone came to the aid of Qualcomm
Why I think this ban is nuts, they are as bad if not worse then Broadcom when it comes to patents. They are far from the innocent. But nevertheless, its us consumers which get hurt.
