Nokia Sues Apple over iPad
This is rather hilarious given that Apple too has the potential to sue any group that infringes on its right to a “touch screen interface.”
Nonetheless, Nokia is serious about the issue. Nokia is suing Apple based on 5 patent infringements that Nokia claims to be exclusive to Nokia and only Nokia.
“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,” according to a statement from the company.”‘
To be honest I’m not sure what Nokia means by “enhanced speech and data transmission,” and other such patents. But then again in the age of digital commercialism that we live in, suing anyone for basically anything is a given. This could potentially just be Nokia playing up its game to gain some sort of leveraging over Apple in further deals and negotiations.
