Nokia Lumia 710

The battle between Apple and Samsung may be the most well-know legal war currently taking place in mobile, but it's certainly not the only one that's happening. Nokia has confirmed to AllThingsD that it has filed new suits against HTC in the U.S., including one in California as well as a second complaint to the U.S. International Trade Commission. According to FOSSPatents, the California lawsuit includes three RFID patents and targets many HTC devices, including the One, First and DROID DNA. Nokia's ITC complaint includes the HTC One as well, though it focuses on different patents.

In all, Nokia is asserting 50 patents in the different cases that it's involved in around the globe. Concerning its battle with HTC, the Finnish phone manufacturer said that even though a German court found HTC to have infringed on Nokia's patents, "HTC has shown no intention to end its practices; instead it has tried to shift responsibility to its suppliers."

These latest suits show that Nokia isn't afraid to keep its litigation train humming along if it feels that HTC is continuing to infringe upon its patents. Whether or not HTC will be found in violation of Nokia's patents in these cases remains to be seen, but one thing that we do know is that anyone hoping for a decrease in the number of wireless legal battles won't be getting their wish any time soon.
