Nokia (NOK) adds 3 more patents to an infringement suit it filed against Research In Motion (RIMM) in May. Like many of the patents used in Apple and Microsoft's infringement suits, Nokia's IP covers some rather basic software "inventions," such as updating software over a mobile connection and storing/transferring multimedia tags. Nokia, which says it's open to selling some of its patents, has become more aggressive in trying to monetize its IP.

    NOK could sell all of it's assets and patents to MSFT for $4 PS and becoming the MSFT hardware manufacturing division for MSFT Lumia, Surface and XBox devices. Wonder what Apple's and Google's reaction to that would be?

    I like that Nokia has balls. They are aiming not to survive, but to thrive by diversyfing from the competition. Kodos for not trying to catch up on the leader of the race, but cutting cross the field running towards the finish line. If they stumble in a pit in that field, and die, well- atleast they tried.

    They do have balls. Not only are they totally reinventing the company but defending their IP portfolio at the same time.

     

    lol, maybe the RIM settlement will be 'the company' ;-)
