Apple could end up paying Nokia $1 Billion for patent violation

In the Apple versus Nokia mobile phone patent infringement wars whereby Nokia accuse Apple of infringing on their GSM, UMTS and WLAN connectivity with their iPhone, it may be that Apple just might find itself in a position whereby they have to hand Nokia a cool $1 billion if they lose the lawsuit reports softpedia.

Nokia filed their lawsuit against Apple in the Delaware District Court claiming the Apple iPhone infringes on 10 of their patents, and that all iPhone models use their patented technology.

Until now Apple has shifted roughly 34 million iPhone handsets and according to Neil Mawston of Strategy Analytics, Nokia could ask Apple to pay between $200 million and $1 billion for the patent licences.
