Long Term Evolution

 

Nokia, Ericsson, NEC, Alcatel, and some other big names in the mobile phone industry agreed to a licensing framework for their patents known as Long-Term Evolution.

What it basically means is that everyone will put their two cents in to promote new technologies by licensing their patents on fair and reasonable terms. Royalty levels for essential LTE patents in handsets must not exceed 10% of the sale price, whereas maximum royalty in LTE enabled notebooks must not amount to over $10.

All that will result in much faster mobile connectivity environment, but we still have to wait for the networks to provide such services, and that won't happen for another two years.
