MdN8, 31 Dec 2013Why bother innovating if someone else will use it without permission? Nokia and Motorola are p... moreBecause of the PATENT TROLLS LIKE NOKIA, it's very hard to manufacture even the simple thing, because every rouded corner is already "invented".
Usually, it's not like somebody really steal some important inovation, but fail to realise that a particular "rounded corner" is already "invented".
Since Nokia is so busy manufacturing... ups, forgot, Nokia doesn't really exist anymore on the smartphone market, its only income originate from patent trolling. This wasn't the case some time ago... ;)
"which can potentially threat the entire Android eco system"
hahaha! way to go Nokia!
wassimios, 01 Jan 2014its google fault, why nokia choosed only htc to judge; not samsung, not lg with their devices ... morePlease get ur facts straight, LG, Samsung & Apple are all paying fee for the patents they use. HTC Drone
its google fault, why nokia choosed only htc to judge; not samsung, not lg with their devices using the same patent, its a war started by Microsoft to destroy htc cos they didnt accept to handle the stupis windows mobile.....
HTC needs to stop stealing. They haven't invented anything new. Just steal and hope they don't get caught. Just like the HAAC mics or Rich Recording Mics they stole from Nokia.
JonHolstein, 31 Dec 2013I guess yet again it's googles fault... Its probably among the packages of code Google has su... moreGoogle not making any hardware?!?!? Really? Have you heard of Motorola phones? How about nexus which is sold by Google?
hrogerpjr, 31 Dec 2013THANX GSMarena. You just helped me make up my mind on my second phablet. HTC ONE MAX.. ... moreIf a company is fighting for its rights is it wrong...? You people don't understand a simple thing (if someone is trying to eat ur shares of hard earned money will you let them have it NO no one does) the same situation is here with NOKIA and HTC. If HTC is ripping of Nokia ideas and eating their fair share what they deserve is thar fair (just think)? People are saying Nokia is knocking HTC off the competition, if u look the other way around isn't HTC trying to do the same by stealing. And this patent fight is long before Nokia-MS deal. If MS is helping Nokia to get their fair share what's wrong in that? I don't know why people hate MS its like a internet trend going around from a long time now which is wrong. The only company that I see right now that is doing some effort to please its customer's is MS. Sure they are not seeing that success but soon they will.
You just helped me make up my mind on my second phablet.
HTC ONE MAX..
MicroSoft ownership of the nokia brand is doing what
MS by itself wants to. DOMINATE.
Basic reason why I BRISTLE when I hear MS is selling aps for Android. MS is the bloody ENEMY. They in 2012 in MAFIOSO style ( no, seriously ) THREATENED many Linux Distro Organizations. These Organizations are basically VOLUNTEER based. So Microsoft made so much money off the Linux community the sum total was MORE than the MS PHONE OS made in 2012.
Nokia is MS puppet.
ENough of us should put our collective minds together to legally challenge this scavenger.
dodge, 31 Dec 2013i think the word mir missed out was smartphones and if you look at the volume sold in the late... more;-)
But then, how many people did NOT buy a smartphone yet? There's still a lot of market left to fight for.
@Sishir, in my mind, all phone companies are running behind money. the specifications they add today faded tomorrow. So Nokia, HTC or any other company, the main difference is very less. we are fighting for no issues...
MdN8, 31 Dec 2013Not true. There's 6.8 billion mobile phones in use. Android sold one billion, Apple a few hund... morei think the word mir missed out was smartphones and if you look at the volume sold in the latest quarters figures you would see that 177 million android handsets were sold this quarter 31 million iphones and only 7.4 million wp and 631 thousand symbian.
i can use wiki too lol
People should stop buying nokia windows phones. People of UK and Germany who loves htc smartphone now very disappointed. Nokia now out of track. only 5% people uses windows phone. I am a htc lover because of their design, front speakers, less lag problem, android, good htc sense....
iFone, 31 Dec 2013this site is flooded by nokia fanboysBetter than Apple fanboys...
I guess yet again it's googles fault...
Its probably among the packages of code Google has supplied... But since google does not make any hardware, they are Nokia can't really target them.
Some off the stuff in the Samsung/Apple suit was the same situation...
So please google, stop stealing code and solutions, or start paying the licensing fees! Stop putting your android partners in troubble by stealing solutions and putting it in Android.
LaxG, 31 Dec 2013Way to go! You just find a new lucrative business. Why bother making freakin' phones???Why bother innovating if someone else will use it without permission? Nokia and Motorola are pioneers and their patents mean something. It's not like they patented silly stuff like rectangles with rounded corners, you know? ;-)
mir, 31 Dec 2013Wait a minute... Most of the phones in the world run either android or ios. That pretty much s... moreNot true. There's 6.8 billion mobile phones in use. Android sold one billion, Apple a few hundred million. The rest are NOT Android or iOS. What, Nokia sold more than a billion S40 phones, most of them are still in use too. 100 million people still use Symbian. The world is bigger than you think. ;-)
