err if you read more into it you'll find out nokia and apple were having talks but that came to nothing so it's now time to sue. Come on, people are acting like Nokia is bad for suing. Would you not sue if you were nokia? You would proably sue me if i spat on you claiming for damages and emotional distress.
Oh and apple has sued before so its about time they were on the end of one
So the iPhone has been infringing on a multitude of your patents from June 2007 and you wait 2 years to slap them with a lawsuit?
I am no lawyer and maybe there are more damages to be had by waiting to sue, but I would have tried to nip them in the bud before they got so successful if they threatened my product sales.
So much from Apple uniqueness. Paid half or not paid at all that's just shame for one famed company as Apple, cause patents do need respect even trough I dislike Nokia. Nokia sure have gutts to pop them up now. Seing this, seems like if next iPhone jump out with same unpaid pattents it will be downfall and it can really smack Apple, except if they fix this by correcting mistake, or either bribing judge with one 3Gi :D
Nokia dont make bricks hey, SE makes bricks, Nokia makes plastic rocks :D
has since long become rotten! Today's Apple and iSteve's strategy is to fleece customers by promoting a premium product as 'cool' and making cosmetic changes [not worth their salt] every 6months or so and then pocketing $billions. Result: Lil-Johnny saves up to get iPhone 3G and then comes 3GS, tagging the previous model as 'old'. Lil-Johnny doesn't like that and so now, there's a vast anti-Apple movement - a result of Apple's own greed for higher profits.
Then comes along Nokia; a firm that has been setting standards for the past three decades in innovation. Everyone respects them for their intellectual property & therefore, have agreements in place to license such tech with suitable financial compensation. I hardly see Apple - with its rebel attitude - going much further with their free-rider game. Apple is the new Microsoft, about time EU trade commission and US Justice Dept did something about it.
I'm so not surprised. And in N.Y Times, they claim that nokia didn't make anything better then the ipone yet...
Instead of making frivolous lawsuits for being butthurt, maybe Nokia should go back into their lab and make phones that doe not, oh i dunno, look like a damn brick?! Just because you're at the top doesnt mean that you're shielded from the changes coming from below. Get with the program and make a sleek phone for once.
bill, 22 Oct 2009nokia is best [apple suck]September quarter sales.
4.4 million N-series phones vs 7.4 million iPhones.
Nokia handset average selling price $90, Apple handset average selling price $600.
Nokia may be best at cheap phones but Apple (and others) are killing them at the high end.
Relax. Iphoney will follow RAZR to the pits.
FADs don't stay long enough.
I hope cellphone companies don't continue to make stupid touch-only phones.
The high cost of apple products specially iphone is the reason that the industry is not affected by the recession.
whereas nokia phones are'nt as expensive.
But keep in mind nokia dosnt make laptops or mp3 players..it is the original manufacturer of the cell phones... well long since the other companies.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2009I agree with you. Nokia is hurt by the iphone's success and is now trying to put some damage ... moreThe real winners will be the lawyers who will make heaps out of this.
Some of this flows on from Nokia's battles with Qualcomm, they recently won a case.
Nokia Cell Phones Su, 22 Oct 2009NOKIA feels threatened. iphone is rulling I'm not an iphone fan but thats the truth.I agree with you. Nokia is hurt by the iphone's success and is now trying to put some damage on Apple by bad publicity. Nokia is losing it big time.
Wouldn't the companies that make the chips which Apple buys to perform these functions already have paid licensing fees to Nokia?
Oh well it's a sign that Nokia is really getting desperate.
Expect a countersuit and negotiations for cross licensing arrangements.
I wonder how the iPhone (2G) infringed the UMTS patents?
I guess it's up to a judge to sort it out.
NOKIA feels threatened. iphone is rulling
I'm not an iphone fan but thats the truth.
Go Nokia,make them pay hard! they made a huge profit with their 170 $ iphone sold for 1000 $.Make them suffer muhahahahhahhaha
Finally! Time to pay the piper!
The iPhoney just bought the rights of the design from a Taiwanese tech manufacturer.
The iPhoney jacked Motorola's finest developers.
The iPhoney won't pay royalties to the almighty brand.
As much as I don't like both companies, guess who I am rooting for :D
