Nokia says “Nexus 7” infringes its standard WiFi patents!! Google and Asus are not current licensees of Nokia.

 

Nokia certainly means business here :). Nokia has indicated that Google’s last week  announced tablet Nexus 7, is not licensed for certain standard Nokia patents. The Asus built Nexus 7 is Google’s first own-brand tablet and boasts Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a quad-core processor and a mere £159 SIM free price tag.

A Nokia spokesperson told The INQUIRER, “Nokia has more than 40 licensees, mainly for its standards essential patent portfolio, including most of the mobile device manufacturers. Neither Google nor Asus is licensed under our patent portfolio.

“Companies who are not yet licensed under our standard essential patents should simply approach us and sign up for a license.”

It’s believed that the patents in question have to do with the IEEE 802.11 WiFi standard, and Nokia told us that neither Google nor Asus have sought to license the technologies.

Now doesn’t everyone know that when Nokia claims something based on its patent portfolio, even companies like “Apple” end up paying millions of dollars. So Google and Asus must be feeling hot for now!!
