Nokia claims that Google’s new Nexus 7 breaks with a tablet that Nokia’s patents. Nokia now requires money from Google.
Last week Google introduced their Nexus 7 tablet, which is produced by Asus. Nexus 7 will be the first tablet that will be born with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes with a quad-core processor.
But shortly after the presentation, Nokia has started another war on patents. However, there is something to suggest that Nokia will not go anywhere as much action, as it happens, when firms URf.eks. breaks an Apple patent.
Nokia claims that Nexus 7 breaks one of Nokia’s patents related to IEEE 802.11 WiFi standard.
According to our site, Nokia has told, that neither Google or Asus has applied for the license to the technology. A spokesman for Nokia says; to companies that do not yet have license, simply can turn and apply for it.
However, it is not likely that Nokia will require sales stop or similar harsh sanctions. More likely it is that Nokia will ask Google and Asus about getting the proper licenses.
It has not been possible to get a comment from Google or Asus. Asus has announced, however, that they do not want to comment on the matter.
