This is probably the first positive Nokia news I’ve seen in a while. Nokia just announced that Apple will be giving a one-time payment and on-going royalties due to a recently signed patent license agreement. The specific terms of the contract are confidential, but intellectual property expert, Florian Mueller, says that there’s serious money in this for Nokia.
Steve Jobs mentioned Nokia during Apple’s fourth quarter results conference call. He said that Apple admires Nokia, but don’t aspire to be them. Nokia leads global cellphone sales with low-priced phones, but Steve said Apple wants to make the best devices. He added that Apple’s goal is to make breakthrough products and that they don’t know how to make great handsets at $50.
