Qualcomm and Lenovo sign 4G agreement
Qualcomm announces patent license agreement with Lenovo in China to further develop devices
Qualcomm Incorporated, renown 3G, 4G, and next generation wireless technologies provider, has announced it has entered into a new 3G and 4G patent license agreement for China, which covers devices marketed by Motorola and Lenovo.
The agreement means Qualcomm has granted Lenovo a royalty-bearing patent license to develop, manufacture and sell 3G (WCDMA and CDMA2000) and 4G, including 3-mode (LTE-TDD, TD-SCDMA and GSM), complete devices.
"Qualcomm is pleased to sign a new license agreement with Lenovo which builds on our long standing relationship," said Derek Aberle, president of Qualcomm Incorporated. "We look forward to expanding our collaboration with Lenovo as the company continues to bring exciting new Lenovo and Motorola devices to consumers around the world."
Scott Offer, general counsel at Lenovo said: "This agreement also provides a solid foundation for Qualcomm and Lenovo to expand and strengthen the long-term relationship between our companies, both in China and around the world."
The royalties payable by Lenovo are consistent with the terms of the rectification plan submitted by Qualcomm to China's National Development and Reform Commission.
