HELSINKI Dec 21 Finnish mobile phone maker
Nokia settled a patent licensing dispute with

technology in return for payments.
Terms of the agreement were confidential, Nokia said on
Friday. It said the deal included a one-time payment, to be
booked in the fourth quarter, as well as ongoing fees.
The agreement settles all existing patent litigation between
the two companies, Nokia said, adding that similar disputes with
HTC Corp and ViewSonic still stood.
