Nokia alleged that Apple infringed on five of its patents; however, a judge ruled that was not the case. The ITC has now agreed to a review of the ruling on two of the patents by its full six-member commission.
The ITC said it would focus the review on the meaning of specific terms in two patents. Espoo, Finland-based Nokia is seeking to block U.S. imports of the iPhone, one of two cases it lodged against Cupertino, California-based Apple with the ITC.
One of the patents under review relates to a way to improve the quality of speakers and antennas while keeping them small. The other is for reducing the space and energy consumed by having a camera on the phone, according to the complaint.
