Nokia ends patent case with $235m settlement

Nokia will pay $235 million to InterDigital Communications to settle a patent dispute, an InfoWorld Daily news report said.

The report said InterDigital, however, failed to re-negotiate a licensing agreement for 3G mobile products that Nokia was currently selling

InterDigital joined Qualcomm among the companies that Nokia was negotiating with for new patent licensing agreements, the report said.

The settlement with InterDigital ended a dispute between the companies over licenses Nokia required to sell GSM/GPRS/EDGE phones and network equipment, InterDigital said, according to the report.

Nokia said it now had a perpetual license to sell those products.
