Smartphones That Work for Business
We asked several analysts which smartphones were best for business. Here are their favorites.
The latest in the patent war between various and sundry smartphone makers involves Motorola, Apple, and the International Trade Commission (ITC).
I mentioned Monday that Apple is suing Motorola for patent infringement involving its Droid devices, and that the suits are likely retaliation for Motorola's attempt earlier this year to see certain Apple patents invalidated. According to Computerworld, the ITC has also decided to hear Motorola's claims of infringement against Apple.
Motorola's complaint accuses Apple of violating 18 of its patents, the story says, on technology addressing everything from "antenna design, 802.11, wireless e-mail, proximity sensing and location-based services." As is typical in ITC proceedings, the company requests an order barring the importation of products that violate its patents.
In other ITC news, the commission has indicated that Apple is unlikely to succeed on its patent infringement claims against Nokia.
