Nokia says that Google's $199 Nexus 7 tablet infringes on their patents

Nokia says that the newly-announced Nexus 7 infringes on their patents

Google's freshly-announced Nexus 7 tablet was only announced last week, but Nokia have already claimed that the 7-inch tablet infringes on some of their patents in regards to Wi-Fi technology. The Inquirer believes that these patents have to do with the IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi standard.

A Nokia spokesperson has said to The Inquirer that they have more than 40 licensees under their standards essential patent portfolio which includes most of the mobile phone device makers. But, Google, nor ASUS are licensed under this patent portfolio. The Nokia spokesperson said that the two companies who have not licensed up should simply approach them and sign up for licensing rights.

 

We will most likely see Nokia going after Google and ASUS for licensing, instead of trying to push legal injunctions against them. You know, like other companies do when they're the biggest competitor to their precious iProducts.
