Nokia and Qualcomm are still at odds over the terms of a new license agreement for 3G technologies, even as the current agreement is set to run out in one week. Qualcomm. Because WCDMA incorporates CDMA technology, Nokia and all other manufacturers who sell 3G handsets must pay royalties to Qualcomm, which owns CDMA patents.

Qualcomm has not offered a counter-argument but CEO Paul Jacobs says the company is hoping to "avoid Armageddon and a massive escalation."
