HELSINKI, May 7 (BestGrowthStock) – Nokia Oyj (NOK1V.HE: ), the
world’s top handset maker, broadened its patent fight with Apple
Inc (AAPL.O: ) on Friday to include the iPad, deepening the bitter
legal disputes between the two smartphone rivals.

battles Apple, which only entered the cellphone business
in 2007, but has taken a sizeable share of the fat-margined,
fast-growing smartphone market. [ID:nLDE6040HE]

The Finnish firm, on the other hand, has shed market share
in smartphones along with margins and stunned investors last
month by delaying its new software upgrade for phones, seen as
key in its struggle with Apple.

Nokia on Friday filed a complaint in the Federal District
Court in the Western District of Wisconsin, alleging Apple’s
iPhone and iPad 3G products infringe five of its patents.

“Apple is continuing to seek a free ride on the back of
Nokia patents,” said a Nokia spokesman.

The patents have not been covered in Nokia’s previous legal
actions against Apple, and relate to antenna technologies,
technologies for enhanced speech and data transmission, and to
using positioning data in applications.

“By moving the litigation to another state Nokia is making
another move in the complex game of intellectual property chess
it is playing with Apple,” said Ben Wood, research director at
CCS Insight.

“On this occasion it is interesting to see it choosing
patent areas such as antenna design where it has developed
competence over many years,” Wood said.

Shares in both firms fell, battered by markets roiled by
European debt worries, with Nokia closing 6.6 percent lower at
8.35 euros in Helsinki, as the stock also traded without the
right to 0.40 euro per share dividend.

Shares in Apple dropped as much as 8.5 percent after the
suit, but later recovered and were off 3.2 percent at $238.40.

“I think the Nokia/Apple lawsuits are a lot of noise. At the
end of the day, they are both tech-rich companies with
tremendous IP and are probably both “borrowing” each others’
technology to some extent,” said Broadpoint AmTech analyst Brian
Marshall.
“My guess is this lasts for years and they both issue some
cross licenses to each other,” he said.
