Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions, today announced that the International Trade Commission (ITC) will not review Administrative Law Judge Paul J. Luckern's initial determination (ID) that Nokia's GSM/GPRS/EDGE-only handsets (i.e., GSM/GPRS/EDGE handsets that do not also implement WCDMA) do not infringe three Qualcomm patents. The action relates to 2G products and is not related to Nokia's WCDMA or “3G” products that are at issue in other cases. Qualcomm will decide whether to appeal the ITC decision to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Qualcomm filed a complaint against Nokia with the International Trade Commission in June 2006.

“While Qualcomm is disappointed with the Commission's decision, we are focusing on the recent consolidation of the arbitration with the case in Delaware. We believe that the consolidation will resolve many important contract disputes between Nokia and Qualcomm more quickly and efficiently,” said Don Rosenberg, general counsel of Qualcomm. “The consolidation will bring these disputes before one of the most respected courts in the country and we are preparing for the tentative trial date of July 21, 2008.”
