Well, that didn’t take long at all: in response to Huawei’s lawsuit yesterday BlackBerry, Kik Interactive settle lawsuit over instant-messaging app” href=”http://www.nokiafever.com/blackberry-kik-interactive-settle-lawsuit-over-instant-messaging-app/”>over concerns that Motorola could tell its dirty secrets to Nokia Siemens Networks in the wake of their $1.2 billion unit sale, a judge in the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has issued a temporary ruling banning Motorola from disclosing any Huawei proprietary information to NSN. Technically, we suppose that doesn’t prevent the sale — which the two companies had hoped to close in early 2011 — from going through unabated, but in reality it probably does since there’s no clean way for the transfer to happen without including information that Huawei had previously shared with Moto. We’re sure this will take a little time to work itself out, but for the interim, looks like Huawei’s gotten its wish.
