Microsoft sues Japan's Koycera for patent infringement
US-based Microsoft is suing high-tech manufacturer Kyocera for patent infringement over technology used in the Japanese company's cellular phones.
Microsoft claims Kyocera's Android-based Duraforce, Hydro and Brigadier smartphones use geolocation and SMS technology protected by Microsoft patents, according to the suit filed in the US state of Washington on Friday.
Microsoft entered into the mobile phone sector when it agreed to buy Nokia's handset division in 2013.
