Nokia has won an injunction against HTC in the Netherlands, the injunction related to the sale of HTC’s latest flagship Android smartphone, the HTC One, and it relates to proprietary microphone technology owned by Nokia.
HTC is apparently using a microphone in the HTC One which is developed by STMicroelectronics, and Nokia apparently has exclusive rights for the use of this microphone in its devices.
The Dutch court has granted Nokia an injunction against the HTC One, what this basically means in that HTC will not be able to sell or ship the HTC One in the Netherlands.
HTC will either have to find an alternative microphone for their HTC One or they will have to reach an agreement with Nokia to use the existing microphone in the handset.
