The nano-SIM saga continues: vote postponed, RIM says Apple is cheating with proxies
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 30, 2012, 4:25 AM
Apple offered to licence all of its tray-loading nano-SIM patents for free, in order to alleviate Nokia's concerns that it will start charging patent fees once its solution gets approved. Nokia said that this is a mockery with its own intelectual property rights, as it has a nano-SIM standard offering and related patents itself.
Nokia has the most voting rights on the ETSI body, but Apple was registering proxy voters like its subsidiaries that comply with the voting requirements, and planted its own people posing as representatives from Bell, SK Telecom and KT. These are precisely the moves Nokia and RIM have been complaining about, and you can read the full text of RIM's letter below.

I am not surprised Apple is doing this. Apple can't play fair or come up with something original like Microsoft or Android so it acts like a spoiled kid that plays dirty in order to get things. Apple didn't invent the tablet with the Ipad, Microsoft did. Apple copied so much from Android that it's basically a Windows version of Android. the only good thing Apple is good at is cheating, creating lawsuits, copyrighting and playing dirty. All you Apple trolls will hate this but it's the truth and you know it.

Repairing the New iPad sucks and it is part of Apple politics too. Also build quality doesn't look so good it is more cheaper than solid... You can watch or download video from here:http://goo.gl/Ojfmx

Unfortunatley all manufactures have pulled stunts like this some succesful and some have been caught and exposed. Truly here Apple has been exposed and the Judging body needs to step up and do the right thing which is to clearly disqualify the parties signed up by Apple. I don not hate any company be it Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, LG, Rim etc.... I am an agnostic when it comes to tech. whatever get the Job done best. However, Right is right and Wrong is wrong and here it seems Apple is doing a wrong.
