Apple has been in business for about 3 decades and has built all sorts of devices including the Newton, laptops, displays, input devices, etc. All of these could potentially hold patents that Nokia is infringing on. It really ends up being an "everybody loses" situation. At worst, Nokia could be exposing themselves to wiping out the entire company on patents they're infringing on. It's best for everyone to say that nobody owes anyone money and drop the matter entirely. Many companies share patents for the purpose of avoiding costly litigation that harms both parties.
