Droid 4 4G smartphone by Motorola Mobility Inc.

$ 199.99 with two-year contract from Verizon Wireless; $ 99.99 for new Verizon Wireless subscribers at Amazon.com

Microsoft also stated that Motorola was abusing its commitment to F/RAND (Short for Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory) standards for some of its patents. F/RAND refers to patents that are part of a standard (such as 3G and telecommunications standards), and the companies involved in such patents have usually agreed to pre-defined F/RAND terms that are enforced by various global government entities that deal with monopolies, such as the Department of Justice in the United States.

Apple is also using the F/RAND defense against Motorola and Samsung lawsuits in the U.S. and Europe.

Valid F/RAND Patent Defense?
