Legal So let me get this straight. Nokia claims that the Nexus 7 infringes upon standard essential wifi patents, and that Asus does not have a license. How in the name of hell is it possible that Asus has been shipping a gazillion wifi-enabled products every year for god knows how long now, and only now does Nokia notice? Wait - of course. Silly me. If you can't compete, litigate. D'oh.

Oh, seems Anantech's analysis was a bit off.

According to page 2 of iFixit's teardown*, the wireless module seems to be made by Azurewave. No idea if they're just a "re-packager" of Broadcom tech or design their own.
