Back in April, Ericsson and ZTE filed patent infringement lawsuits against each other, with each party claiming that its 4G / WCDMA / GSM technology had been illegally appropriated. Today, though, the two have apparently decided to bury the hatchet, and withdraw their lawsuits. In a statement issued yesterday, ZTE said the two firms arrived at the decision after “extensive discussion and consultation,” adding that the move will bring an end to “the patent infringement lawsuits filed by Ericsson against ZTE in the U.K., Germany and Italy, as well as the patent infringement lawsuit filed by ZTE against Ericsson.” The company went on to deny earlier reports that it was forced to pay €500 million (about $ 647 million) to Ericsson, though Ericsson has yet to offer any comment on the matter.
