Texan company seeks Nokia, RIM, Palm import ban

Accuses six companies of patent infringement

 

Due to alleged patent infringement, a Texan company called Saxon Innovations has filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission seeking to prevent six companies from importing their devices containing these patents into the U.S. Among these companies you’ll find some high-profile handset makers such as Research in Motion (RIM), Palm and Nokia.

The company claims three patent infringements – a keypad monitor with keypad activity-based activation, an apparatus and method for disabling interrupt marks in processors and such and a device and method for interprocessor communication by using mailboxes owned by processor devices. The company has just five employees, but over the past years it has accumulated a lot of intellectual property, and the patents in question were acquired from AMD in 2007.

If Saxon Innovations manages to snatch a win here, it will mean that the US residents won’t have a chance to buy the likes of Nokia’s N73 and N95, RIM’s Blackberry 8100 Pearl and Palm’s Treo 700p, provided that no agreement and/or compensation is reached/negotiated between the companies, altough we're pretty sure they'll come to some sort of agreement if it comes to that.
