Nokia to Google: Let’s discuss unauthorized use of Nokia patented technology in Android.

[embedit snippet=”fluids”]nokia-Android-NPU

FOSS patents report that Nokia has some licensing issues to sort out with Google and its fully owned subsidiary Motorola. Nokia in a filing with ITC has attached following part from a December 3, 2013 email from Nokia’s counsel to Google’s.

Nokia re. 13-10-25 letter to Motorola Mobility HoldingsThe above image reads,

“If Google wishes to proceed with its requested meeting, Nokia will do so, as we have repeatedly told you. Indeed, Nokia’s Robert Gray explained in his October 25, 2013, letter to Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc.: ‘If Google is in a position to end the unauthorized use of Nokia patented technology in Android products, [Nokia] would welcome independent discussions with Google on that basis.’ Google has not taken Nokia up on that offer. Mr. Gray (or someone on his team) remains available to meet in Finland before the settlement conference deadline, if Google so desires.”

Seems, it is finally heading towards the ultimate showdown of Nokia vs Google. Nokia has already sued HTC over Google Maps and navigation services in Germany.

    If someone asked me, I would like to know it before selling the whole business, unless I had an ace up my sleeve.

    It is baffling for me, that they didn’t release a single android phone before selling of the whole unit. There is no ace we’ve heard of until today.

    They should have tried the effect.
    Or where they so close to insolvency ?

    Why the rush ?

    • Ben

      what rush, if they did not sell there division to MS, they will be crush and burned its not about Nokia doing Android, you cant slap Android expect to get marketshare and millions of sales overnight, that’s how business work in reality, stop living in “lal-la” land, wake up. You don’t know what future of Nokia brings to the market.

      • TS

        Ben, you’re obviously an idiot 😉

  • JLIT99

    If they aren’t convined, then why isn’t Normandy dead yet?

    • Kamal

      Producing one forked Android device is not equivalent to going Android way, right?

  • microsoft sue google again i think they already get paid for Android?

    • Kamal

      Microsoft takes only D&S division, not Nokia patents and IPR for your kind info.

      • So nokia are working just like a patenttroll for microsoft ? That its to innovate 🙁

        Microsoft copying the Google all the time, last is they will copy at Google Glass.

        • Kamal

          Nokia is protecting its patents and innovations from vultures, imo.

        • Ben

          errm Microsoft was making wartables before google even though about it and even before they entered the market, don’t talk shit. Heard of Microsoft SPOT Watch and they filled a glasses patent back in 2010, a wearable tech, they have been working on for nearly 4 years, way before google glasses. get your facts right, even Nokia was working on wearbles way before Google, the Morph watch back in 2008 and glasses in 2009. so shut up GOOGLEfag boy.

        • Ben

          actually google copying Microsoft mobile strategy, it doesn’t matter about acquisition, Microsoft/nokia was in talks late 2010 and they formed in Feb 2011, months before Google/Motorola acquisition back in August 2011 because they knew Microsoft will get there before Google, in first party phones and they have been following and copying Microsoft mobile strategy in OEMs SINCE DAY ONE OF Android, Microsoft has been doing that since 2002, letting oem create there mobile devices and with the PC back in the early 90s, that what led into dominace in the PC race, just like Android dominating. so shut up

          • Ben

            they even had tablets before in 2002/2003 before Google showed up with that horrid Honeycomb 3.0 back 2011

        • Ben

          GOOGLE WAS NEVER INNOVATIVE AT ALL, THEY STEAL AND COPY, ALWAYS COPY MICROSOFT, THEY WANT BE LIKE MICROSOFT BUT THEY CANT, THEY ACT LIKE MICROSOFT BACK IN THE 80S/90S. WOW. GOOGLE SEARCH IS CARBON COPY OF MSN SEARCH. THE SAME GOES FOR THERE LAST YEAR GOOGLE NOW ASSITANT, COPIED MICROSOFT TELL ME ASSITANT (PRE-CORTANA) BACK IN 2011 DEMO.

        • Ben

          MICROSOFT SPENDS 5X MORE R&D THAN GOOGLE
          AND NOKIA SPENDS 2X MORE R&D THAN GOOGLE.
          SO WHO IS INNOVATIVE MICROSOFT, NOT GOOGLE, EVEN NOKIA IS MORE INNOVATIVE. DONT TELL ME GOOGLE IS INNOVATIVE, THEY ARE NOT.

          MOTO X 2013 = COLOURS/DESIGN COPY OF LUMIAS 710 2011 DESIGN
          HOLO UI CRAP COPY OF METRO UI/MEEGO MERGED.
          AND GLASSES COPY OF PATIENT OF AR GLASSES FROM MICROSOFT DEVELOPMENT.

          I wont be surprised if they built an game console to copy Microsoft Xbox. lol

        • Ben

          the patent troll is Google, not Nokia and Not Microsoft. Don’t go there.
          defending Googles crap. They steal and sue others, worst than Apple.
          Nokia is still alive and kicking, they never died. The one who is dying is Motorola and they useless patents, no wonder Google, drain $12.5 billion away. Microsoft and Nokia protecting there technology from being copied from Google. Google should not get away with this. so don’t talk BS.

      • a single Android phone had saved nokia, but then Elop

        • Kamal

          Nokia could have taken Android route, but BOD was not convinced and they are still not convinced!

        • Ben

          as if, never. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SAVING NOKIA, nokia is no where near the bankrcupcy. Nokia problems were before elop, and they put it to themselves because they lost focus on modern smartphones at the time. So don’t go there with that BS talk. “android PHONE WOULD HAVE SAVE NOKIA”, does not cut it, I heard it all before for the past nearly 2 years after the Lumia 800 early sales. Im sick of it. Nobody wants to be in a saturated market like Android period. Android does not deserve any monopoly, theres room for everyone in the smartphone marketplace, you need to realise that, do you really think monopoly is good? think again? goverments have been clamping down on monopolies, especially European Courts. So don’t talk crap, Nokia would have been in the shadow and Samsung will be the top OEM of Android and then Nokia will be in ashes and some crappy Chinese manufacture will buy it and turn nokia innovation into carbon copy of iClones. No thank you, Nokia is too smart for that, its bigger than that, its not a follower, its a leader just like MS, always have been and always will. No wonder MS/Nokia have a similar connection in leadership and motives. Success from both companies in the 90s, Nokia phones were booming in the 90s and Microsoft Windows was dominating worldwide by the 90s and crushing Apple, both were the worlds leading tech companies, and still are today. So keep saying that crap to your self, it will never happen and it will never work in a millions of years. In the mobile space, there is more room for more than that pathetic malware green turd, its too large and big, its needs to be clamp down, in market share.

          END OF.

  • The story of a patenttroll who died with wp8

    • Kamal

      No, the story of an IPR stealer challenged by a true innovator.

      • Should no other operating system to be than windows?

        Why sued nokia competitors just when microsoft took over?

        • Kamal

          This is ongoing. Try to read past articles and you will come to know. Even Apple pays royalties to Nokia, so not a big deal if Google ends paying :).

    • Ben
