George Edwards and Nenad Medvidovic, two software experts affiliated with Quandary Peak Research, recently completed a comprehensive examination of the camera software architecture of over a dozen Android devices. The two also analyzed a handful of mobile phones powered by Qualcomm’s Brew platform. The inspection and analysis of C++ and Java source code was an immense task and was central to the technical arguments in the case.

George and Nenad performed the source code review, which extended over a period of several months, on behalf of Chinese mobile device manufacturer ZTE, and ZTE’s counsel, Goodwin Procter. ZTE, along with Huawei, Pantech, and HTC, is under investigation by the International Trade Commission (ITC) as a result of patent infringement allegations filed by FlashPoint Technology. Nenad was deposed as an Android expert witness and testified at the trial.
