Qualcomm demands to stop the release of Apple iPhone
Qualcomm appealed to the court in China, demanding to prohibit the development of the production of smartphones Apple iPhone in the country. According to the plaintiff, the defendant violated its patents.

In April, Qualcomm said his lawsuit, then Apple ceased to translate contract manufacturers iPhone funds intended for the payment of royalties to Qualcomm.
