Could Apple wind up paying Nokia $1B over iPhone patents?

In the wake of Nokia's lawsuit against Apple last week, which claimed that Apple's iPhone infringes on 10 Nokia patents that span WCDMA, GSM and WiFi technologies, analysts are wondering: How much would Apple have to pay if it loses? Strategy Analytics analyst Neil Mawston told Reuters that Apple may have to pay Nokia between $200 million and $1 billion for the patents. It is entirely unclear how lawsuit, which was filed in Federal District Court in Delaware, will turn out. However, analysts said that Nokia might have a strong case since it is one of the wireless industry's key patent holders. Article
