Nokia lobs patent grenade at Apple

This could turn out to be nothing more than some hot air in a court room or something that drags on for years with no real affect on the overall smartphone industry.

“The largest handset maker in the world is suing the maker of one of the most popular, the iPhone, because, according to a statement released by Nokia on Thursday, Apple has refused to license any of the patents in question. All iPhone models dating back to the original introduced in 2007 are infringing, according to Nokia. Nokia is asking the U.S. District Court in Delaware for an injunction (PDF) on sales of iPhones and for unspecified damages. “
