Presented last week, Google Nexus 7 is running on Android Jelly Bean, with a quad-core processor that will come for a price of £159 SIM free.
It turns out that it is violating Nokia’s IEEE 802.11 WiFi standard.
As Nokia stated, neither Asus nor Google have requested to license the patent.
Nokia has over 40 licenses, including most of the mobile device manufacturers, mainly for standards patent portfolio.
Asus and Google did not license under Nokia’s WiFi patent portfolio.
The companies that do not license Nokia’s standard patent should approach and sign up for it.
But unlike Apple, Nokia will not seek injunctions against the Nexus 7, instead the company is requesting that Asus or Google obtain the licenses properly.
