Nokia steps up campaign against Apple
Nokia is suing Apple again.
The patents cover technologies for enhanced speech and data transmission; using positioning data in applications; and antenna design for compact devices. Nokia says the patents are important since they allow it to offer better 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.”
Nokia says it has invested around €40bn in research and development over the past 20 years, which has led to the creation of 11,000 patent families.
