Qualcomm today said it has signed a new patent licensing agreement with Lenovo, which will use Qualcomm's 3G and 4G wireless technology in future mobile devices. The patents will appear in both Lenovo- and Motorola-branded devices and cover technologies specific to the China market. Qualcomm said it has agreed to royalties that are inline with the terms set by China's National Reform and Development Commission. Last year, Qualcomm settled an investigation with China regarding its licensing policies for nearly $1 billion. Lenovo will use Qualcomm's technology to develop, manufacture, and sell 3G and 4G handsets, including tri-mode (LTE-TDD, TD-SCDMA, and GSM) devices. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. Qualcomm signed a similar deal with Xiaomi, Haier, Tianyu, and QiKu late last year.
Motorola has a new phone specifically for "business" folks. It's a high-end phone with a design inspired by Lenovo's ThinkPad laptops.
