Nokia adds iPad, more iPhone to lawsuit again Apple

Nokia has just filed a second patent infringement suit against Apple, adding the iPad into the mix. The new suit covers:

five patents related to "enhanced speech and data transmission, using positioning data in applications and innovations in antenna configurations that improve performance and save space, allowing smaller and more compact devices." [...] by our count, Apple and Nokia now have some five pending legal actions between them, including one that's been placed on hold pending an ITC decision.

This one has been filed in a so-called "rocket-docket" which means, unlike previous suits, it could go to trial in less than a year.

Now we'll just sit back, grab some popcorn with our good friends over at, and wait for Apple to counter-sue. Again.
