    GOOGLE, PAY-UP OR FIGHT !

    (Either way; Nokia is going to Kick Your #$%$ )

    Charles Wolf, an analyst with Needham & Company,
    said "Most of the (Nokia Patents) appear to {- Cover Highly Technical Internal Components, -}
    “THE PLUMBING OF ** MOBILE DEVICES ** ".

    Florian Mueller, an intellectual property analyst in Starnberg, Germany, said while Apple benefited by settling its legal differences with Nokia, it was likely that the patent settlement with Apple involved “SIGNIFICANT PAYMENTS" by Apple to Nokia.

    Mueller went on to say; "The deal structure is very telling: A combination of a (Payment For Past Infringements) as well as (Running Royalties) is a Clear Indication that There’s SERIOUS MONEY In This For Nokia.”

    Mr. Mueller said the agreement with Apple was the first fruit of a new Nokia strategy to more aggressively defend its patent portfolio, which includes more than 10,000 groups of handset patents developed over the past two decades.

    Nokia has said it invested more than 43 billion euros ($62 billion) to develop its patent archive.

    “Having proven its ability to defeat Apple after the most bitterly contested patent dispute that this industry has seen to date is * CLEAR PROOF * of the effectiveness of Nokia’s more aggressive strategy", Mr. Mueller said.

    “Other companies whom Nokia will ask to pay royalties will have to think very hard whether to pay or pick a fight.”

    Mr. Mueller said Nokia might now turn its sights on Google, the maker of the Android open-source phone operating system, which is the world’s fastest-growing mobile operating system.

    Mr. Mueller asserted that Android was technologically similar to Apple’s iPhone operating system and might invite a legal challenge from Nokia.
    ******
    The financial terms of this settlement are confidential but it is thought that Apple is to pay Nokia 4.5% of the cost of each mobile device sold.
