Anonymous, 04 Dec 2013no HTC argued that other manufactures using same Qualcomm chipset why should that not get sued... moreBecause other manufacturers pay. Doesn't anyone remember how HTC already used microphones designed by Nokia without asking? Now Nokia is the bad guy? Gimme a break.
Raker, 04 Dec 2013others pay nokia money for using the patent. Htc refused to pay so they got suedno HTC argued that other manufactures using same Qualcomm chipset why should that not get sued? also nokia and Qualcomm have an agreement in US about the patent issue so why does it only count in US then?
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2013almost all oem pay for patent royalties for products.. maybe, its just that htc dont have a de... moreI think he is a bad judge
Why with God sake HTC paid twice for the same patent
They already paid while they take the chips from Qualcomm
Which "Qualcomm" already paid to Nokia
So in fact Nokia is punch of thieves and robberies, they sell the patent twice
And this judge either crazy, or they gave him money to say this bullshit
Cenas, 03 Dec 2013The situation is not that one.
HTC is using Qualcomm chips. Qualcomm is the one who used &quo... moreThat's true
The pitty M$
Soon all of us will be happy by seeing this evil empire go to hell. As it belongs
The most bigger M$ and Apple hater in the world

Nokia Has The Right to Sue What so Ever Company that infringes on it's patents and that's why they'll sue htc at all cost! As For Apple, They've signed a lifetime deal with Nokia over their patents and as a result of that, Nokia Earns 11$ share on every apple device and Samsung on the other hand, renewed their patent agreement with Nokia recently on a 5year deal until another renewal and that's why we had a recent rumour(leak) on gsmarena that samsung are in the process of manufacturing a 20MP camera handset and is soon to drop!!! If you indeed wanna be free from being sued,then avoid using patents you've not licensed or go sign an agreement and get a license for it's use!!!!!Period
This ruling is a farce how can HTC be held liable for a breach in the patent when it is embedded in the chip which is supplied by another company.
goes to prove the law is an ass
almost all oem pay for patent royalties for products.. maybe, its just that htc dont have a deal with nokia..

nokia turns into apple. next they will sue oppo for building a phone with more than 200g. but nokia holds the patent on heavy bricks.
InceptioNisT, 04 Dec 2013Nokia can't get sales now they wana stop other company salesSamsung is also using a lot of Nokia's patents but they actually chose to settle and do it legally rather than copy and steal from Nokia just like what HTC did and you've never heard any news of Nokia suing Samsung. Had HTC done the same they would have avoided all this litigation. Nokia is right to sue anyone who infringes on them. Any other company would do the same.
Nokia can ban all they want but in the end they are the ones that have ceased to exist.
kkk, 04 Dec 2013nokia = bad connectingI'm not a Nokia fan but I.tell you from my experience, Nokia connects to Wi-Fi in some spots that many other smartphones cannot
Nlookviears, 03 Dec 2013because samsung paid nokia,....because Apple paid Nokia...
jbpianist28, 03 Dec 2013I say you are absolutely right there!it is not my business
