In the law of the playground, he who has the biggest rep holds court. In the world of mobile, though, it's all about your quiver of patents. Nokia has its fair share, and already flexed its litigation-muscle against RIM (among others). Now, it's popping another three in the chamber in this latest filing. It's Germany, again, the Madison Square Garden of the mobile world -- more specifically Munich. FOSS Patents asserts that Nokia has a much stronger IP portfolio than RIM, but that Waterloo will still likely countersue. So, perhaps another added benefit of concentrating on a smaller number of devices? Less patent toes to tread on.
