Legal Nokia has gotten an injunction against HTC in Germany over a patent on a power-saving feature in Qualcomm chips (?!). Nokia's response illustrates why the company started its recent patent offensive: "Nokia is pleased with this decision, which confirms the quality of Nokia's patent portfolio." If nobody buys your phones and your business is failing spectacularly, you have to promote something else of value to paint yourself as an interesting acquisition target. Patents it is, then. If you can't compete, litigate. Update: HTC's statement is pretty damning.

I'm not accusing, countersuing Apple or cheering, I'm just observing.

You are not Nokia, HTC or a German judge, yet you know exactly what Nokia's motives are based on the sales figures of their Lumia phones. Even stranger, you link to an article that is based on Florian Muller's work, which were aren't allowed to do.

Your opinion is presented as fact and each time someone disputes this it is waved off in an unpleasant manner.

It's my opinion we can make our own opinions and should be allowed to debate news facts with an open mind and not dogma.
