BEIJING http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Welington-Castillo/ , June 1 (Xinhua) -- Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has secured 2,500 patents from Microsoft through a patent transfer and cross-licensing deal, a Xiaomi senior executive said in Beijing on Wednesday.
As part of the deal with Microsoft, the Beijing smartphone maker bought 1,500 patents from Microsoft and secured the rights to use another 1 http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Carlos-Rodon/ ,000 through cross-licensing, according to Wang Xiang, a senior vice president of Xiaomi.
The patents focus on areas such as wireless communication, cloud computing, big data and multimedia http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/James-Shields/ , Wang said.
Through the cross-licensing, Xiaomi also allowed Microsoft to use some of its patents such as multimedia, camera, phone design, operating system and video http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Avisail-Garcia/ , Wang said.
Wang declined to disclose the amount Xiaomi has paid to secure these patents.
The patents will help Xiaomi steer away from potential patent dispute lawsuits, especially overseas. In 2014, Ericsson filed a lawsuit to a court in India, claiming that Xiaomi had infringed its wireless technology patents.
While China's home-grown smartphone makers are chipping away at the dominance of Apple and Samsung in China, leading players such as Xiaomi and Huawei are building up their patent warchest to take on overseas competitors in emerging and developed markets.
In a sign of Chinese smartphone makers' growing clout in the global patent battle http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Yoan-Moncada/ , Huawei filed lawsuits last week to courts in both China and the United States against Samsung for alleged patent infringement.
According to tech consultancy Strategy Analytics, Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi rank as the top three smartphone vendors by shipments in the first quarter this year in China. Globally, Samsung and Apple retained their top two positions in sales during the same period, but are ceding market share to Chinese rivals http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Tim-Anderson/ , according to tech consultancy Gartner.
Under the deal with Microsoft, Xiaomi will begin shipping its mobile phones pre-installed with Microsoft's Office app suite and Skype in September.
Xiaomi's co-founder Lei Jun also sits on the board of Kingsoft, which developed the WPS Office suite similar to Microsoft's. Wang said Microsoft's offering will present more options for users, especially to overseas consumers who are more familiar with the Office suite. Office will be free of charge for Xiaomi users.
According to Wang, Xiaomi applied for 3 http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Carlton-Fisk/ ,700 patents in China and other countries in 2015, up from 2,000 in 2014.
NANJING, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Japanese people should more cherish the hard-won peace, and the international community need to honestly face up to history http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Bobby-Jenks/ , top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng said here Wednesday.
Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks while addressing the state memorial ceremony to mark the 80th anniversary of Nanjing Massacre.
War is a mirror, which makes people better understand peace than ever, Yu said.
""To avoid any repeat of the historical tragedy http://www.cheapmlbwhitesoxjerseys.com/Michael-Jordan/ , we must make unremitting efforts for the lasting and even eternal peace of mankind,"" he said.
WELLINGTON， March 2 (Xinhua) -- Protectionism under the new United States administration of President Donald Trump poses the greatest potential risk to the New Zealand economy， the head of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) said Thursday.
Before the U.S. election， Trump had suggested tariffs of 45 percent should be imposed on Chinese imports， while House Republicans were pushing hard for border tax adjustments that would disallow deduction of import costs and exempt export revenues.
"Such calls for protectionism are contrary to the global trend in trade liberalization over recent decades，" RBNZ governor Graeme Wheeler told a gathering of investors in Auckland.
"They also come at a time when the growth in merchandise trade volumes over the past five years is the weakest since the early 1980s and new trade-restrictive measures by G20 countries are at their highest level since the GFC (Global financial Crisis)，" he said in a published speech.
"There is much uncertainty around the objectives of trade policy under the new U.S. administration， and the specific policy instruments that will be used in pursuit of these goals."
Trump's administration had withdrawn from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership， negotiations around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the European Union and the United States were in jeopardy， and the administration had signaled it wanted to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
"Higher tariffs would raise prices for U.S. consumers， could require a more accelerated tightening in monetary policy by the Federal Reserve， and could be expected to put upward pressure on the U.S. dollar exchange rate，" said Wheeler.
"Furthermore， U.S. tariffs would invite retaliatory actions by other countries. This would raise prices to consumers， and distort global supply chains as producers in the U.S. and elsewhere change sources of supply and product destination，" he said.
"Increased protectionist measures would represent a negative global supply shock."
Even if New Zealand exports of goods and services to the U.S. - currently exceeding 8 billion NZ dollars (5.71 billion U.S. dollars) - were not directly subject to higher tariffs， it would be hard hit by a downturn in the global economy， including among its main trading partners， in response to the direct and indirect impact of protectionist measures.
"We would experience lower global demand and weaker commodity prices. Our exporters would also experience efficiency losses and increased costs if they faced disruptions to established supply chains. We would also experience spillovers as foreign producers' diverted trade in respo.
