Nokia settles patent disputes with HTC

Nokia says it has settled all pending patent litigation with HTC in a deal that should help strengthen the firm’s licensing offering.

The patent dispute between the two companies was one of many in the fast-growing market for smartphones with market leader Apple, South Korea's Samsung, Google and Microsoft all embroiled in disputes of their own.

But the Finnish company said it has now signed a patent and technology collaboration agreement with Taiwan's HTC.

Though HTC will make payments to Nokia, no financial details were disclosed as the terms of the agreement are said to be confidential.

Last November, Nokia said it had extended a patent licence agreement with Samsung for a further five years.
