Sony Ericsson won European backing to sell a 50% stake of software developer UI Holdings BV to its rival, Motorola Inc. The European Commission cleared the deal after identifying no antitrust problems and receiving no complaints from rivals.

Sony Ericsson, itself a 50-50 joint venture between Sony Corp. and LM Ericsson, said the deal with Motorola would help make UIQ a stronger player for selling user interface software for smartphones and media phones to all handset vendors.Under the agreement, UIQ Technology will be vendor and chipset independent and will be licensed equally to all mobile device vendors in the industry. (AP)
