Nokia files suit against Apple, claims patent infringement

Nokia makes the world's most widely-used handsets -- by a wide margin -- and they went on the offensive to defend their technology announcing a lawsuit against Apple, Inc. The claim, filed in Delaware district court, alleges 10-counts of patent infringement for technologies used in all iPhones produced since 2007. Nokia's press release states, "Apple's iPhone infringes Nokia patents for GSM, UMTS and wireless LAN (WLAN) standards." No other specifics about the suit have been released. After Apple's recent earnings blowout announcement we can guarantee you one thing: if these claims have any merit Apple will be settling.
