Qualcomm Pushes Forward on iPhone and iPad Sales Ban

So the squabble between Qualcomm and Apple has not exactly been a secret, but Qualcomm upped the stakes a bit yesterday by filing lawsuits for patent infringement in order to get sales injunctions against many of Apple's products in the U.S. as reported by The Register. We will keep our eyes peeled on this to how the court reacts 4 years from now.

Qualcomm is upping the stakes in its legal war against Apple by accusing the Cupertino idiot-tax operation of infringing six patents. The California chip designer today said iPhones and iPads using Intel's 4G wireless chips are effectively using a half-dozen Qualcomm inventions without permission. Now, Qualcomm is asking the US International Trade Commission to ban imports of those mobes and fondleslabs into America from their Chinese factories. Qualy also wants all marketing and distribution of the iOS handhelds to be outlawed in the US.
