Motorola just got a blow from its legal department. Motorola and Microsoft are fighting over their patents in court, Microsoft made a complaint against Motorola to ITC to ban its products in US. Fearing over Microsoftâ€™s patents Motorola Mobility attempted to delay the Microsoftâ€™s ITC Complaint hearing against it, but they were denied today. So we may find the first round result of this case soon, this is similar to Appleâ€™s recent win over HTC over patent infringements. If Microsoft wins the case, Motorola can no longer sell its devices in US.
My quick tip to Motorola Mobility to avoid the case: Make a strategic partnership with Microsoft to make Windows Phone devices leaving the most IP violated mobile OS â€œAndroidâ€.
