Nokia drops Blackberry ban threat following ‘patent licensing deal’ with RIM
London: Nokia has dropped a bid to ban Blackberry handsets from sale after the Finnish mobile maker signed a patent licensing deal with Research In Motion.

Nokia had asked courts in the US, UK and Canada to take action after a tribunal ruled that RIM should be paying a fee to include a common type of wi-fi connectivity on its devices.

The firm said RIM had now agreed to pay both a one-off charge and ongoing payments, the BBC reports.

Nokia''s clash with RIM centred on wireless local area network (Wlan) connections to the internet. All of RIM''s handsets and tablets use it,

RIM had argued an earlier licensing deal with Nokia meant it should not have to pay additional royalty fees to use the technologies.

However, an arbitration ruling by Sweden''s Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in September went in the European company''s favour, the report said.

According to the report, Nokia already earned about 500 million euros from existing intellectual property licences.
