Nokia Pleads for Modest 3G License Fees

Nokia said on Wednesday that inventors of the latest mobile phone technology should charge modest license fees so that manufacturers aiming to make new, fast Internet phones can keep prices low enough to attract demand. Nokia itself holds a bundle of key technology patents on high-speed, third-generation mobile communications technology. The company said it planned to keep its license fees modest to help keep total licensing costs at no more than five percent of the sale price of a handset or a piece of network equipment. If Nokia can recruit other handset manufacturers such as Motorola and Ericsson to join in this effort, it may succeed in keeping fees modest across the industry.
