Qualcomm Inc Monday kicked off a patent challenge to Apple Inc., capping off a two-year legal strategy to put pressure on the iPhone maker before a major antitrust lawsuit between the two goes to trial in April.Apple has alleged that Qualcomm engaged in illegal patent practices to protect a dominant position in the chip market, and Qualcomm has accused Apple of using its technology without compensation.U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw opened an eight-day trial Monday to determine whether Apple violated Qualcomm patents on helping phones turn on more quickly and save battery life during tasks such as playing video games.Apple has responded in court papers that it does not believe the patents are valid and that it does not infringe them.
