The Nexus 7 has been a major news of the recent Google I / O and has the credentials to establish itself in the tablet market thanks to the excellent price and performance. The approach of the Nexus 7 to market, however, may be not without some difficulty. Suggesting that fact is Nokia has already denounced the violation of certain patents owned by Google and Asus in the realization of the tablet.
The patents that Nokia highlights the breach relate to WiFi technology integrated into the Nexus 7. According to the Finnish company, nor Google, nor Asus would have required a license to use the technology subject to patents. A Nokia spokesman as saying about it:
“Nokia has more than 40 licensees, mainly for its standards essential patent portfolio, including most of the mobile device manufacturers. Neither Google nor Asus is licensed under our patent portfolio.”
The alleged infringement of patents, Nokia seems determined not to remedy in the courts, as other competitors have been shown to do, but trying to make arrangements for the licensing of technologies have become matters of contention:
“Companies who are not yet licensed under our standard essential patents should simply approach us and sign up for a license.”
At the time neither Google nor Asus have commented over the claims of Nokia.
