No wonder apple are posting such great profits - it's far easier to make a profit if you're not spending what you should be! This does seem a tad desperate from nokia, but i doubt they'd do this if they weren't confident that they had a case. The iphone's been around for 2 years now - why is it only now that this has come up? Perhaps nokia gave apple every opportunity to pay the patents, and apple kept promising to do so...and now nokia have had enough? It's quite sad that a tremendously successful company like apple still tries to operate on the sly.
Rumor has it, they stole the telephony core from devices of 1100 and 3310 class.
No wonder the battery doesn't last at all, that's pre-2000 technology this "ultimate computer uses".
what so great about this phone? i had this phone, i have to go to apple every time it hangs... can't wait for the nokia n900.

As for qualcom, what do you imagine UTMS = 1 patent, GSM = 1 patent, tbc.
No, all theese technologies have multiple ones, of wich many are held by nokia since they are (one of)the oldest member in the game.
The number of infringments is 10 and I really don't care how many/wich those are since sueing an american company on american soil requires some well fonded arguments. "Corporations don't-just-go-to-trials"
It's understandable apple can't make it's own phones, but not even their own firmware?!?
At least they stole from the very-best;)

Nokia just wants a cross licensing agreement because they want access to some of Apples patents, I thought America was the place of lawsuits.

no code, no use.
Look what the back of iphone says, "designed in california" , do design companies write code?
Odd how apple shops run on microsoft technology isn't it?

MP4 is just a container, any desired codec (for encoding that is) may be used.
MP4 was just a marketing scheme as the real follower of mp3 is AAC. It has nothing to do with mpeg either.
So no, noone actually uses mp4 with the codecs it was designed with, but apple.
If this is 3G phone, wht secondary camera is not there. what about the experience of video calling after having 3G connection from operator at high premium.
Iphone is great multimedia. Nokia Eseries are great to for business. Anyway both are top rated in the editor's top 10 mobile devices by cnet. http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/0,139102093,1,00.htm thanks
