Nokia granted preliminary injunction against HTC in the Netherlands over high-amplitude mics2013-04-22 20:36:00 HotNews 46人瀏覽
Don't worry, this time it's not a patent issue. However, it is more bad news for HTC's oft-delayed One. Nokia has been granted an injunction by the Amsterdam district court, concerning the technology used by HTC in its current flagship. You might recall the pair of high-amplitude mics housed within One's aluminum body, but these are apparently the same dual-membrane tech that Nokia's used in its recent Lumia 720, seen above.
The Finnish company recently applied for a preliminary injunction, pointing the finger at ST Microelectronics, which is responsible for manufacturing the mic component for both Nokia and HTC. According to our source, the issue is likely to be a breach of an NDA between Nokia and ST Electronics as the phone maker asserts that the "microphone components [were] invented by and manufactured exclusively for Nokia." We're still hearing the details and will update as we hear more. We've also reached out to HTC for comment. For now, you can read up on Nokia's statement following the court's decision after the break.
