Apple removes Withings from online store over Nokia patent row

When you sue someone, you better make sure they aren't selling your products. Nokia may have forgotten that business common sense or was just willing to throw Withings under a bus when it sued Apple over patent infringement.

Nokia’s patent attack on Apple just cranked up to max [Updated]

Nokia has expanded its patent lawsuit against Apple, now suing the company across the US, Europe, and Asia, and filing a US International Trade Commission complaint. The move adds to the original lawsuits announced yesterday, which saw Nokia file in four courts - three in Germany and one in the US - alleging that Apple continued to refuse to cough up for using technologies the Finnish firm holds patents upon.

These Nokia patents are why Apple is getting sued

It's a strange list of patents that Nokia is suing Apple over - and not a list we'd have expected would have come so late in the game. Nokia's set of suits have been filed in the United States and Germany, for starters - they suggest they'll go further in the near future.

HMD has rolled out a couple new feature phones wearing the Nokia name that aim to be very cheap but offer quality.

Nokia D1C price leak matches mid-range phone specs

Nokia is getting back into the mobile business. There’s no longer really any doubt about that.

According to the usual sources, the Nokia D1C will carry a mid-range price tag matching its mid-range nature.

Nokia D1C tipped to come in two configurations

Nokia might no longer be the mobile giant that it was once was, but its name still sparks some loyalty, or at least curiosity, among those who still fondly remember the brand. Come 2017, both fans and onlookers will have something to look forward to, or some things rather, as Nokia is now rumored to have not one but two kinds of smartphones, both under the same D1C models. Neither, however, will be a flagship killer of any sort.

Nokia to return to smartphones in 2017

Nokia to return to smartphones in 2017

Nokia was the biggest name in mobile phones before the smartphone generation really kicked in. The firm had a hard time competing with Android devices from Samsung and iOS devices from Apple and eventually vacated the smartphone realm altogether and focused on feature phones. With feature phones being all but dead today in the face of decent low cost smartphones, Nokia wants back in the game.
