Google-Motorola tablets, smartphones could be banned in Germany
London: Google-owned Motorola could be forced to recall its Android tablets and smartphones in Germany after losing a patent lawsuit against Apple.

Munich Judge Peter Guntz said Motorola had infringed Apple's ‘overscroll bounce’ technology, which enables users to move documents over the screen of their device and let them bounce back to the centre after releasing their fingers.

According to the Telegraph, assuming appeals by Motorola, which was recently acquired by Google, are rejected and Apple chooses to enforce the court's order, devices such as the Droid Razr could be recalled.

The iPhone maker is pursuing Android manufacturers all over the world, accusing them of copying its designs and technology, the paper said.

According to the paper, they have launched counter-lawsuits, however, and in February Motorola forced Apple to restrict iPhone "push" email services in Germany following a court victory of its own.

Google had purchased Motorola Mobility for 12.5 billion dollars last year, in its largest acquisition ever.

According to the paper, Google aimed to use the company's patents to fend off legal attacks on its Android mobile platform and expand beyond its software business.
