T-Mobile sued Huawei, now Huawei sues back
Back in 2014, T-Mobile claimed in court that Huawei stole some trade secrets about its phone testing robot Tappy. How? By trying to sneak into the Un-carrier’s Bellvue, Washington, headquarters to take pictures of said robot, named Tappy. Since then, Huawei has made its own testing aid and T-Mobile wanted to call legal foul on its play.
Fast forward two years and now Huawei is going after T-Mobile on the same grounds that it did against Samsung. Little Magenta has for the past two years been using 14 4G patents it refuses to license from Huawei, at least so the Chinese manufacturer claims. All it wants at this point is for T-Mobile to be compelled to negotiate and nothing for a financial award.
Neither T-Mobile nor prepaid subsidiary MetroPCS carry Huawei phones at this point.
