IBN7 News: It seems that the patent battles among smart phone creators are not going to end since almost every new gadget is claimed to infringe on somebody else's patents. And it shows up that we will have a new smart phone gaint included as Nokia just officially charged ASUS for making use of its patents with Google Nexus 7 tab devoid of permission.
The patents in concern refer to the IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi standard, that the Nexus 7 facilitates. Nokia licensed these patents to 40 mobile unit producers, but neither Google nor ASUS listed their.
Yet, Nokia is not going to file a patent lawsuit towards Asus. Rather, it has invited Asus and Google to get the required permission.
