Apple Will Bid At Nortel Patent Auction

Apple Will Bid At Nortel Patent Auction

Apple, Intel, Ericsson, RPX, and Google are some of the technology giants that will vie for Nortel's patent portfolio later this month, according to the WSJ. Nortel has delayed the auction by seven days until June 27 due to a "significant level of interest".
