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.

Azurewave seems to be the manufacturer, but they're somewhat obscure. But while not a big name as Broadcom, Asus is already using their chips in a number of products like Eee Pc 1000, U56E notebook and Transformer Prime (see the image here: http://www.chipworks.com/en/technical-competitive-analysis/resource... -- the text is either inaccurate or they know something I don't know). So it seems unlikely that they don't have licenses for WiFi technology.
