Nokia today announced a licensing agreement with Trimble technologies. Nokia will be the exclusive licensee of Trimble's GPS technologies in wireless consumer electronics. Trimble owns about 700 of patents on finding a device's location using satellites (GPS) or hybrid (aGPS) technologies. For its part of the agreement, Nokia will license its location based services patents to Trimble. Nokia will be allowed to sub-license Trimble's technology to other manufacturers. The company also recently acquired navigation technology provider Gate5 and likely entered this agreement with Trimble to create an entire navigation platform it could sell or license. Nokia last week announced its first handset with GPS technology, the N95.
