Nokia files new patent violation complaint against Apple....

The world's leading mobile phone maker Nokia said Tuesday it was filing a fresh complaint against Apple for patent infringement in "virtually all" of Apple's devices.On Tuesday Nokia filed a new case relating to seven patents in areas of multi-tasking operating systems, data synchronisation, positioning, call quality and the use of Bluetooth accessories.

Nokia has filed yet another lawsuit against Apple and that Nokia has asked that the ITC ban imports of Apple products like the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and MacBook.

"Our latest ITC filing means we now have 46 Nokia patents in suit against Apple, many filed more than 10 years before Apple made its first iPhone," Paul Melin, Nokia's vice president, intellectual property, said in a statement.This latest patent infringement lawsuit was filed in a Delaware federal court, claiming that Apple is infringing on “implementation patents” related to mobile technologies like cameras, user interfaces, and touchscreens. This is the second Nokia lawsuit claiming that Apple is violating device patents, while the original lawsuit claims that Apple is violating Nokia patents related to wireless GSM technologies. By the looks of it, Espoo is throwing everything they have against Apple in a bid to get the leverage they need to settle the case for loads of cash. And, to tighten their squeeze on Apple, Nokia has apparently asked the ITC to ban Apple products from entering the US.
