NEW YORK (Reuters) - Cell phone maker Motorola Inc (MOT.N) and Metrologic Instruments Inc have settled all outstanding patent infringement disputes, the two companies said in a joint statement on Monday.

Metrologic and Motorola subsidiary Symbol Technologies Inc had been in a dispute over patents related to bar-code scanning and mobile computing since 2002.

As part of the agreement the two companies will cross-license their patents for a limited term.
