Nokia Files Second Lawsuit Against Apple
Nokia has filed a second lawsuit against Apple, this time alleging that the iPhone and iPad 3G infringe on five patents that belong to Nokia. The patents in question relate to speech and data transmission, as well as how location information can be used within applications, and antenna design. Apple has not responded. Nokia sued Apple in late 2009 over wireless patents, and Apple countersued Nokia. Neither of the previous cases has been resolved, though the U.S. International Trade Commission has agreed to investigate Apple's claims against Nokia.

BlackBerry Sues Nokia Over Patents
BlackBerry filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nokia this week. BlackBerry claims Nokia is using its patented technology in select telecommunications equipment that Nokia sells to network operators, such as T-Mobile, without the proper licenses.
Nokia's only hope is these lawsuits.
Viable Smartphone Platform? - Nope.
One successful software initiative? - Nope. In fact, I think you could argue that Ovi, et. al. have all been massive failures. But calling any one of them a success is false.
A singe successful model in the USA - Nope.
Excellent developer support? - Nope.
Any sort of vision as to where to take mobile computing? - Nope.
Going through it all, Nokia has sadly become nothing more than a peddler of cheap inexpensive handsets and poorly engineered smartphones to Europeans who don't know any better. None of those are sustainable long term (look at their numbers... ha!) so they're now play...
You are fanboy-maximus so explain to me, a European, living in New Zealand (with a second home in Nosara, Costa Rica) with 5 Nokia's, an iPhone & 2 iPad's why Nokia has to rule in the US to be relevan...
According to global smart sales, why is it then that Nokia is greater than the sum of the iPhone & all Android combined????
Who is lying, you or facts?
Nokia may sell a lot of handsets, but go through the following:
No, I will not go through the following.
