A German court on Tuesday ruled that HTC infringes on a Nokia patent related to a power-saving technology for mobile phones.
Nokia won an injunction against the sale in Germany of some HTC handsets that infringe the specific patent, the District court of Mannheim ruled. The injunction can be enforced against all HTC entities in the case if Nokia pays a bond of $13.6 million.
Nokia also won the right to recall infringing devices from retailers and is entitled to damages.
HTC Wildfire S, Desire S and Rhyme are the three models that the court found they use the specific patent. However, non of these models sell in Germany anymore.
HTC said it will appeal the verdict and that would also continue invalidity actions pending in Germany and the U.K.
Earlier this month,Nokia lost a patent lawsuit it brought against HTC in Mannheim over its use of the Google Play app and content store client app in Android-based devices.
