Qualcomm is beefing up its patent portfolio with the remants of Hewlett-Packards smartphone history. The mobile processor and radio giant has just announced that it has acquired 1,400 mobile patents and patent applications from the computer company, including intellectual property from Palm, iPAQ, and Bitfone. The portfolio includes 1,400 US patents and patent applications, and 1,000 patents and patent applications abroad, but its not clear how much those might overlap. The companys press release doesnt include many other details, such as how much Qualcomm paid for the patents, but does say the intellectual property includes fundamental mobile operating system techniques. Qualcomm writes that the aquisition will enable the company to offer even more value to current and future licensees.
