       It was recently reported by Digitimes that Finland-based Nokia, Microsoft, and Ericson which have patents to telecommunications technology may declare a patent war against Chinese cellphone manufacturers.

Reports say that Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Coolpad, OPPO, Meizu and Vivo, which do not have sufficient patents, may be vulnerable to patent violation copmplaints as they branch out to the international market.

When these companies only targeted the Chinese market, Nokia, Microsoft, and the other companies were “not really willing” to take any legal action, but now that Chinese cellphones are selling more overseas, these companies may prepare to file suit in courts in the US and Europe.

Huawei, ZTE, and Lenovo may be able to endure such legal action as the first two have a lot of patents to 3G and 4G technology, while Lenovo has managed to buy a lot of patents.

    From 1 perspective yes some China companies must be punished for this “copycat” strategies. Every phone they make is a copy and a copy of copy (See HDC). But some brands gets the good features from known brands and use them to make similar but better phones. For me this is evolution of the mobile specie.

    2nd Big fact is the price. Maybe Nokia, Microsoft, and Ericson have to rethink their price policy. Their phones are perfect in quality, we also get service support in our countries but finally they lose from the competition. Why? because If a china phone breaks I can order a new one and I still will have payed less than getting a “Well known” phone. I don’t care about the marketing campaigns that cost billions because of TV spots and multimillionaire models touch their products. I saw a company named Xiaomi (yeah you know them) using only the internet to promote their products and keep the costs low. Now they are printing $$$

    I’ll happily pay a 20-30% plus to get a famous brand phone + support for a similar spec phone that China sells.

    Finally I think that mobiles phones tend to be consumables. But that’s a fact technology is consumable so for me I’m not the guy who wants to pay 300$- 400$ for a phone and use it for 2-3years. I’m the one who says pay 150$-200$ and in a year i’ll buy a new one.
