Nokia sued Apple at Federal District Court in Wisconsin due to the fact that both iPad and iPhone violated five patents that was held by the electronics company. The company said that the patent is related to the specific technologies that includes enhanced speech and data transmission, using positioning data in applications, and antenna configuration enhancements.
Nokia says the disputed technologies help reduce the size and cost of the electronic gadgets.The hostilities began in October when Nokia sued Apple for violating ten wireless technology patents. Apple replied with a lawsuit of 13 patent violations. This is not the first suit between the companies. There was a suit last year that was involved GSM, UMTS, and Wi-Fi standards. But, this suit surprised the tech community because the electronics company didn’t give any public indication that the intellectual property rights has been violated.
