Nokia: Pick Apple’s SIM Standard, No Patents For You

Nokia (NYSE: NOK) is escalating its objections to Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) leading the way on how future SIM cards for our mobile devices are designed. In an official statement issued Wednesday in advance of a hearing at Europe’s telecom standards organization, the Finnish handset maker warned that it would not license any of its own patents it believes are necessary to an Apple-designed nano-SIM card, which Apple has offered to let others use royalty-free.
