Qualcomm eventually expects reconciliation with Apple
It seems that in the confrontation between Qualcomm and Apple, there was a tendency to positive changes. Despite the fact that both companies are already not the first year are waging a fierce struggle for patent license and license fees, it seems that the “ice was broken” and one day the company will still be able to establish their relationship and will again be working together.
In confirmation of this on Tuesday, during an interview at the conference WSJ Live D. (Laguna beach, California), Vice President of Qualcomm Steve Mollenkopf said:
"In the end, it is important to remember that the basis for our opposition is the discussion on the pricing of the fundamental technology for the production of smartphones. So, it all depends on how much you intend to pay. Despite a bitter patent fight, our companies remain strong partnerships. And legal feud with Apple, Qualcomm is not personal it's only business".
Recall that in January, Apple filed another lawsuit against Qualcomm, worth $ 1 billion, claiming that the chip manufacturer puts forward unreasonable demands for a license to use their technologies, significantly increasing their cost. Response Qualcomm was a lawsuit against Apple for patent infringement, demanding a ban on sales of the iPhone, since none of the modern smartphones including iPhone, would not have been created without a cell phone technology of Qualcomm.
