Lenovo acquires 3G and LTE patents from NEC


It seems the hunt for Patents is not over yet as Lenovo recently announced that it has purchased a portfolio of patents from NEC consisting of 3,800 patents filed in countries from around the globe.

The portfolio consists mainly of patents related to mobile technologies and features found in high-end smartphones as well as standard essential patents for 3G and LTE. The company stated that this will give them the additional intellectual property assets needed in order to continue to expand.

No information has been released yet as to how much the company paid for the patents. This is not a rare move made by Lenovo as it recently paid $100 million to purchase 21 patent families owned by Unwired Planet related to 4G and LTE technologies.
