Indian Court Bans Xiaomi Phone Sales Over Patents

The world’s speediest-growing mobile brand Xiaomi, which made an impressive India entry in July this year, has been barred from importing or selling its devices in the country over alleged patent infringement. The Delhi High Court has passed an interim order directing that the world’s third-largest mobile maker, as well as its exclusive online retail partner in India, Flipkart, refrain from selling handsets that run on technology patented by Swedish equipment maker Ericsson.
