Sprint And Qualcomm Investigating Patent Workaround
Jun 28, 2007, 3:13 PM by (staff)
Sprint today hinted that it is working with Qualcomm to test an update for EV-DO handsets that would work around Broadcom's patents. Qualcomm has stated that in addition to pursuing all legal methods to overturn the ban, that it is looking to implement new software, if it is possible to do so to the satisfaction of operators, manufacturers and legal authorities. The process of designing a workaround is common to patent disputes, but has rarely been successful in the past. Qualcomm is also pleading for a Presidential veto of the ban, as it now appears unlikely the Federal Appeals Court will rule against the ITC.
