Nokia Suing Apple

Two of the most popular handset vendors are set to clash as Nokia sues Apple over patents

Leading mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia, is a tad upset with Apple over some of the former’s patents allegedly being taken by latter without any compensation in the offering. So, the Finnish-based company is suing.

So what patents have got Nokia all hot under the collar? Well, they happen to relate to some of the big bits of technology within the handsets – GSM, 3G, as well as wireless LAN standards.

Rumours abound that all Nokia is really after is a royalty payments, while other pundits are adamant the company wants a huge financial settlement. Either way, it looks like a line has been drawn in the sand and this suit doesn’t look like it is going away any time soon.
