Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions, today announced that the United Kingdom (UK) High Court has handed down judgment in a case filed by Qualcomm against Nokia in May 2006. The case involves Nokia's GSM/GPRS/EDGE-only handsets (i.e., GSM/GPRS/EDGE handsets that do not also implement WCDMA) and two of Qualcomm's patents that cover certain power saving and power control technologies. The UK High Court ruled that, although the Nokia accused products included the patented technologies, the power saving patent is invalid and that the power control patent is partially valid but, insofar as it is valid, is not infringed by Nokia. Qualcomm is actively considering whether to seek permission from the UK court to amend the patents and appeal the decision.

The issues in the UK case are not included in the recent consolidation in Delaware. The UK action is limited to Nokia's GSM/GPRS/EDGE products and does not address the need for Nokia to license Qualcomm's patents for Nokia's WCDMA products.
