Nokia is again suing iPhone maker Apple in Wisconsin, USA over alleged patent violations in Apple products such as iPhone and iPad 3G.

We are not legal experts and we shall let the law take it’s course. Nokia you better start shipping the N8 soon !  and  Apple you better show us the iPhone 4G next month .Nokia sues Apple in Wisconsin for infringement of Nokia patents
May 07, 2010 Espoo, Finland – Nokia announced that it has today filed a complaint against Apple with the Federal District Court in the Western District of Wisconsin, alleging that Apple iPhone and iPad 3G products infringe five important Nokia patents.The patents in question relate to technologies for enhanced speech and data transmission, using positioning data in applications and innovations in antenna configurations that improve performance and save space, allowing smaller and more compact devices. These patented innovations are important to Nokia’s success as they allow improved product performance and design.

“Nokia has been the leading developer of many key technologies in mobile devices” said Paul Melin, General Manager, Patent Licensing at Nokia. “We have taken this step to protect the results of our pioneering development and to put an end to continued unlawful use of Nokia’s innovation.”

During the last two decades, Nokia has invested approximately EUR 40 billion in research and development and built one of the wireless industry’s strongest and broadest IPR portfolios, with over 11,000 patent families. Nokia is a world leader in the development of handheld device and mobile communications technologies, which is also demonstrated by Nokia’s strong patent portfolio.

    Nokia should let apple alone and stop fooling themselves cos they (nokia) ARE berra than apple 10x. Some nokia devices made 2-3 years back still beat the iphones hands down. When it comes to customer utility and satisfaction. The real problem with nokia is that they keep releasing new phones each day and fail to publicise them properly. They shud take a leave from apple; apple releases a new device once in a blue moon. Nokia should do more to publicize phones like n900 n97mini, eseries devices etc
