Last week Google announced their first Android tablet, the Google Nexus 7 which is made for Google by Asus, and now it would appear that Nokia is less than pleased about Google’s new tablet.
According to a recent report by The Inquirer, Nokia has said that the Google Nexus 7 infringes on Nokia patents, and it seems to have something to do with a patent relating to the IEEE 802.11 WiFi standard.
A Nokia representative told the Inquirer that “Nokia has more than 40 licensees, mainly for its standards essential patent portfolio, including most of the mobile device manufacturers. Neither Google nor Asus is licensed under our patent portfolio.
“Companies who are not yet licensed under our standard essential patents should simply approach us and sign up for a license.”
Asus has refused to comment at the moment and there doesn’t seem to be any word from Google either, but it would appear that Nokia are looking for the two companies to come to an agreement to license the patents in question.
