Nokia Cries Patent Infringement Over iPhone, iPad 3G

This news kind of makes you think Nokia's legal team has been pouring through the iPhone and iPad since their release, as they have allegedly found some parts of the device that infringe on their mobile communications patents.

Nokia claims that the iPhone and iPad 3G both infringe on 5 of its patents that deal with mobile data transmission, integration of location data, and physical design over placement of radio antennas.

The paperwork for this case began late last year, and Apple will most likely countersue if for nothing else to show that it won't sit idly by during the Nokia offensive.

The last big patent battle for Nokia was against mobile provider Qualcomm, which the phone manufacturer said was charging too much for its licensing. That suit never reached a conclusion in court because the two companies reached an undisclosed settlement in the middle of the trial.

If this lawsuit goes through, it would be a real headache for Apple. The amount of effort it would take for the company to rigorously defend itself, which you know it would want to, will be immense.
