“Nokia enters into patent license agreement with Apple
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 · 8:55 am
Nokia announced that it has signed a patent license agreement with Apple. The agreement will result in settlement of all patent litigation between the companies, including the withdrawal by Nokia and Apple of their respective complaints to the US International Trade Commission.
The financial structure of the agreement consists of a one-time payment payable by Apple and on-going royalties to be paid by Apple to Nokia for the term of the agreement. The specific terms of the contract are confidential.
We are very pleased to have Apple join the growing number of Nokia licensees,” said Stephen Elop, president and chief executive officer of Nokia, in the press release. “This settlement demonstrates Nokia’s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market.”

Florian Mueller writes for FOSS Patents, “This frees up resources for both Apple and Nokia. Apple is embroiled in litigation with the three leading Android device makers (Motorola, HTC and Samsung). Nokia doesn’t have any litigation worries at the moment, but part of its new strategy is to ratchet up the monetization of its patent portfolio. The fact that Nokia has demonstrated its ability to defeat Apple — after the most bitterly contested patent dispute that this industry has seen to date — is a clear proof of concept. Other companies whom Nokia will ask to pay royalties will have to think very hard whether to pay or pick a fight.”
Mueller writes, “This is also very significant with a view to Android. Given that Android is in many ways a rip-off of Apple’s operating software, Android-based devices are highly likely to infringe on largely the same Nokia patents that Apple now felt forced to pay for.”
“I don’t hold shares in any tech company, but if I were an Apple shareholder, I would probably view this outcome favorably. Nokia emerges victorious, but this is a sweet defeat for Apple because its competitors — especially those building Android-based devices — will also have to pay Nokia, and most if not all of them will likely have to pay more on a per-unit basis because they don’t bring as much intellectual property to the table as Apple definitely did,” Mueller writes. “So from a competitive point of view, I don’t think Apple loses much. On the bottom line its profitability may even benefit from this because Apple’s margins face no greater threat than Android-style commoditization of smartphone technologies.”
Abuz, 15 Jun 2011I want to know pls when will this phone reach Oman?. Thanks in advance gantle boysi am 2 frm oman bro........wel it is now available in black in certain places in ruwi.......
n officially it wil b available in a week or so......
hey guys wat bout its performance with games..??
does it lag..?? i saw in a video dat it lags while playing shrek kart..
[deleted post]U r a total stupid.....
1. There is no need of qwerty keypad.... The slide out concept is outdated.... A person who is using touch screen for a long will never demote to use hard buttons as the touch is much comfortable....
2. The extra sim slot is cheap thing coz dual sim is a mark of cheap phones..... And galaxy S z an expansive and luxurious series..... Why it will follow the cheap trend???
3. Stylus is not at all needed coz its a capacitive touch display... U r biggest fool.... Thz phone can b used only by fingertouch and not by any other objects.... U r just assuming and saying anything.... N also stylus is for cheap resistive displays....
just i purches Galaxy Sll(in india) but MAP and ANDROID MARKET i can`t acces!
shown packet data connection error for MAP
and cant sync with google server
anyone can tell me what a reason behind that?
aaaaa, 15 Jun 2011For me N8 is still better than SGS II in terms of FEATURES AND PRODUCTIVITY. Fine, they have f... moreqoute:"SUPER AMOLED/PLUS is ultra over saturated. To the extent when you're capturing photos, it looks pretty colored, but when you transfer it to pc or laptop you will see the REAL IMAGE AND COLOR QUALITY which is inferior to N8's imaging quality"
That's because SAMOLED is far far superior than LCD, and far superior than LED backlight LCD, thus when u transfer the photos to the laptop, u will find it not as pleasent as it was on phone, and you thought that the screen is over-saturated or the photo is quality is bad where it's not the case. Whilst N8 screen is only AMOLED, and if you have a LED LCD laptop, u will find the photos colors "more accurate" as these 2 screen displays are almost at the same standard. It's all about comparisons. Common sense. And you made no sense at all.
