Nokia Charges Apple Again

As PDA industry sees a boost, there is more rivalry in the air than anything else. Apple eating up a major share of the Smartphone market makes it the most edible fruit. This reason alone is enough for the other competitors to sue the company. After Microsoft, it's now Nokia that has charged Apple for patent infringement.
Recently, Nokia has filed a lawsuit against Apple at the Federal District Court in the Western District of Wisconsin that charges unlawful use of Nokia's five of the patents in their iPad 3G and iPhone.
Nokia claims five kinds of infringements implicated by Apple's technology including:
- Enhanced speech and data transmission
- Antenna innovations in configuration
- Utilizing position data in applications
- Improved performance and save space
- Allow smaller and more compact devices
Seems like Nokia is all set to initiate a full-fledged battle against Apple! Stop entangling Miss Possessive, Nokia. It is pathetic when you excuse that it is a better way to secure your pioneer-ship. I think if you are good enough, no one can endanger your goodwill in the niche.
"We've taken this step to protect the results of our pioneering development and to put an end to continued unlawful use of Nokia's innovation,” said Paul Melin, general manager of patent licensing at Nokia.
Where, Nokia signifies a reputable market in the mobile landscape. I know you have invested a lot of bugs for research and development of your infringements patent to fabricate one competitive wireless industry's structure. Nokia has strongest and broadest IPR portfolios with a great lead in world development of handheld device and mobile communications technologies.
"Nokia has invested about $51bn (£34bn) in research and development and has rounded up 11,000 patents.”
Similar measure was taken last year as well. Nokia filed a lawsuit against Apple that was retorted with a countersuit against Nokia for infringing Apple patents with its smartphones. In the meantime, Apple is charged by Taiwan's HTC makers for another legal suit for involving their patented technology. Such disputes are so far very common to the techno-driven industry.
