Nokia (NOK) claims Google's (GOOG) Nexus 7 tablet infringes two Wi-Fi patents, and that neither Google (GOOG) nor OEM partner Asus has asked for a license. However, Nokia also notes its history of licensing standards-essential patents, which suggests a settlement is more likely than a lawsuit. Nokia recently said it was open to selling part of its giant patent portfolio, and with the company trying to shore up its cash position, it might get more aggressive in trying to monetize its IP.

    The desperation is sad but I am rooting for Nokia to squeeze as much money out of this scheme as possible.

    You don't have faith in Elop? The entire board and management are supportive of him right now.

    Just for the stupid name some guy in China made Apple pay 60M, I really hope Nokia can get about 3 times as much for this 2 patents alone.
