Here you go. Interdigital is leader in essential 4G patents (4G = LTE). http://www.rethink-wireless.com/print.asp?article_id=4230 "According to ZTE's analysis of the IPR databases, InterDigital is the leading holder of essential patents in LTE, with its Patent Holdings arm controlling 13% and its Technology unit 11%. Next comes Qualcomm with 13%, Nokia and Samsung on 9% each, Ericsson and Huawei on 8%, ZTE at 7%. LG, with 6%, and NTT DoCoMo with 5%, bring up the rear, while the remaining 11% is held by 'others'. The list indicates a stronger weighting towards Asian vendors than in 3G, where Qualcomm, Nokia, Ericsson and InterDigital were dominant."
Read that and let us know if you think ZTE might be a bidder for IDCC?
