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.

The "contigency plan"...

Ah, now we know the "contigency plan": become a patent troll


EDIT: i understand that Nokia needs to defend its patents. However as Thom puts it the timing is very suspicious. Also, Nokia does not have a product in the same segment, so there is no real harm done to their bottom line (which then makes you wonder if they are about to release a competing product)...
