Kelly Fiveash writes why Nokia is suing Apple.

“Nokia is suing Apple for allegedly infringing 10 of the company’s patents in its iPhone device. The world’s number one mobile phone vendor filed its lawsuit in Delaware’s federal district court (yesterday). Nokia detailed 10 patents in the case that relate to technologies ‘fundamental to making devices which are compatible with one or more of the GSM, UMTS and wireless LAN standards,’ it said in a statement.”
