Nokia Says Google Nexus 7 Tablet Infringes Its PatentsBy cheatmaster 08:44 Wed, 14 Jul 2021 Comments
It appears that the patent wars between smartphone manufacturers are far from over as virtually every recent device is assumed to infringe on someone else's patents now. And it appears that we are going to have a recent gigantic player involved as Nokia just officially accused ASUS of using its patents with Google Nexus 7 tablet without license.
The patents in question refer to the IEEE 802.11 Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) standard, which the Nexus 7 supports. Nokia assumed that it has licensed assumed patents to 40 licenses mobile device manufacturers, but neither Google nor ASUS are on the list.
However, Nokia won't have as aggressive approach as Apple and is unlikely to file a case against Asus. Instead, the company has kindly invited Asus and Google to sign up for a license.
We'll be following ASUS and Google's response and see if this could turn up to be the next gigantic court case against the Nexus devices.
