We can't say Nokia is king of smartphone until we see what it will give to us . I'm sure it will take another few years to stand same level with apple . For now apple still in my heart but still wait if Nokia can replace it
Yea God's,it's scarey the level of ignorance shown by many of the commenters on here.
They appear to have no idea how patents are meant to work or the idea that some makers are happy to pay to licence other people's patented ideas.
Nokia will very probably never regain the position they held in the phone market,but then they never have been at anytime,"number 1" in smartphones,they mostly made "feature" phones,then were taken over by MS,who then purposely destroyed the mobile part of Nokia,for what ever weird reason.
Samsung,HTC,etc have paid to use Nokia's patented knowledge
Lol samsung pay for the patent that they use.nokia ask apple for payments for their patent and they never reach an agreement so that's why nokia suing apple.
Even Nokia had patent infringement issues with Apple...
Does that mean Apple do have something fishy?~
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2016If Nokia is the true king of mobile, they do not need to resort to this first. Innovate new... moreDude what do u mean by saying old patents..!! Nokia has the highest number of patents and it is their property so if anyone steals them then Nokia has to take action. Apple, Samsung all use Nokia's patents...
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2016Their rights.. Yeah rights. WHY target apple ONLY? If not for money, why apple? Why not try... morewell if you have researched enough before you go keyboard warrior, you would know that Nokia is working with Google (Android), of course they will target Apple, Apple has been their target even before Apple rose up to the top before getting knocked off by Samsung, you should know more about Nokia and Apple's beef with each other to understand why, you can't just target Samsung right away since their patents are different, they might have copied Apple but that ain't Nokia's problem, that is Apple's which they been dealing with every now and then
reading these news looks like Nokia and Sony are returning to take the power of Apple and Samsung, That's great, competition is always good for us because it brings new technologies and more competitive prices
YowYow, 22 Dec 2016you are seriously confused with what you are saying, who said anything about money? it was you... moreTheir rights.. Yeah rights. WHY target apple ONLY?
If not for money, why apple? Why not try their luck in Korea vs Samsung? Or try China with Huawei? Even their statement already claim other then Apple, there are others "stealing" their patents. Quote "Nokia has created or contributed to many of the fundamental technologies used in today's mobile devices, including Apple products". AND OF ALL COMPANY, why they approach ONLY Apple? WHY?
Its obvious they go for the easiest way to money grab.
Yesterday's King, 22 Dec 2016Seriously man.. if Nokia have to resort to such measure to stay afloat. The money gained (even... moreyou are seriously confused with what you are saying, who said anything about money? it was you? what I said was their right to their patents, not about money, HMD and FoxConn does not need Apple's money to make phones, lastly, Nokia did not waste Microsoft, Microsoft wasted and killed Nokia, Nokia had no choice to have Android then because Microsoft is in control, that is why HMD is trying their best to gather the original Nokia board, engineers and workers that Microsoft laid off or transferred to another company
YowYow, 22 Dec 2016defeat your foes legally? so lawsuit is not legal? reclaiming a throne means taking back what ... moreSeriously man.. if Nokia have to resort to such measure to stay afloat. The money gained (even if they did win) will not matter much in the end, no dent in Apple financially, only a major dent in Nokia's name.
Surely you can see this is a desperate attempt to money grab. And they have not shown anything worth jack shit since the rise of android and ios. Even Microsoft is wasted on them.
They could have moved to android and diverse but NO.. they waited and waited.. until near death.. before giving in.
Apple once a copycat always a copycat, previously they've lost a case against Nokia and Sony..Lol.. Typical Apple :p
Nokia files lawwsuit to finance it's device's Research and development and their advertising campaign.
Just seeing news about Nokia gets me reminiscing about the N and E series devices.. Can not wait to see what they being to the table.. And in the mean time sue who you need to sue for using what is rightfully yours..
