There was no chance Apple would have licensed their Multitouch patents.
So, Nokia sued them knowing they will get sued back and as always this will end in a cross-licensing deal. Nokia would give up a few of the telecom/cellphone patents they have amassed over decades and in return would get Multitouch.
If this is the case, then well played Nokia. Edited 2009-12-11 18:30 UTC
While it is a bit ridiculous, more-than-one is actually much harder than only-one. Not so much harder that you should be able to patent the very idea, though.
Nokia has their own multi touch tech, like 3D multi touch that they just filed for, and older ones are touch less that recognize commands without a single touch on the screen.
Cross-licensing deal are just a option if both are equal like Nokia and Qualcomm or Ericsson and some of the other larger players. Cash-Licensing deal is the most likely outcome like they have with a few others.
The 10 patents are probably the 10 that are rock-solid and has to be used.
