Its been a long time since we heard of this battle. Nokia, the largest vendor of mobile phones has added 13 more patents to the already huge 24 patent lawsuit over Apple Inc.
This may actually go on forever since both companies are big and have enough money to hire patent lawyers for the long term.Nokia has added those 13 patents related to touch screen gestures and application stores which, it says was patented 10 years before the first iphone was even released. Well, then Nokia must sue Google too, i guess ( android market, anyone ? )
The included patents related to:
User interface, on-device app stores, antenna structures, signal noise suppression, messaging functionality, chipsets, caller ID, display illumination, integration of multiple radios, and data card functionality
And they have given a press release too, boy!, these guys shout stuff out loud. PR after the break
