Nokia Files More Lawsuits Against Apple in Germany, UK, Netherlands

Posted by · 7084 views · Translate

Nokia announced it has filed claims in the UK High Court, Dusseldorf and Mannheim District Courts in Germany and the District Court of the Hague, Netherlands, alleging that Apple infringes Nokia patents in many of its products sold in these countries, including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

"These actions add 13 further Nokia patents to the 24 already asserted against Apple in the US International Trade Commission and the Delaware and Wisconsin Federal courts," said Paul Melin, vice president, Intellectual Property at Nokia. "The Nokia inventions protected by these patents include several which enable compelling user experiences. For example, using a wiping gesture on a touch screen to navigate content, or enabling access to constantly changing services with an on-device app store, both filed more than ten years before the launch of the iPhone."

Nokia's filing in the UK covers 4 Nokia patents related to touch user interface, on-device app stores, signal noise suppression and modulator structures.

Nokia's filing in Dusseldorf, Germany covers 7 Nokia patents related to touch user interface, antenna structures, messaging functionality and chipsets.

Nokia's filing in Mannheim, Germany covers 5 Nokia patents related to on-device app stores, caller ID, display illumination and the integration of multiple radios.

Nokia's filing in the Hague, Netherlands covers 2 Nokia patents related to signal noise suppression and data card functionality.

None of the asserted patents have been declared essential to any wireless communication standard.

Apple counter-sued Nokia's original lawsuit last December.

Nokia phones don\'t come sim locked? I think sim lock is a carrier thing since they subsidize the cost of whatever phone it is when you sign up for a contract with them.

Chris they also come sim locked when you buy subsidized from carrier. However with Nokia you also have a choice to buy non-subsidized not simlocked directly from Nokia store. This is because Nokia cares about its customers. As you see from posts of dickhead crapple has to actually employ web brigades to ridicule people and defend their in fact criminal practices or ... like in case of antenna gate they sponsor crappy artists to write crappy songs to defend crappy antenna. And who pays for those dickheads ? Crapple customers pay.
