Today Nokia disclosed a licensing agreement with Trimble technologies that gives the first-mentioned the right of being exclusive licensee of Trimble's Global Navigation Satellite System patents in wireless consumer electronics. Trimble holds aprox. 700 of patents on finding a device's location using such technologies as GPS or assisted GPS. Having this agreement Nokia will benefit by an ability of sublicensing rights to other producers which will expand their industry leading WCDMA/UMTS and GSM patent portfolios. Trimble instead receives a possibility to use Nokia's location-based patents in Trimble's commercial services and products. However, the financial conditions were not revealed and Nokia only announced that “it will not be material to either company's revenue or income”. Kai Oistamo, executive vice president and general manager of Nokia Corporation announced that Nokia will be able to offer its customers - consumers and operators alike - an even more compelling mobile experience.

Steven W. Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble said that they were very pleased to be working with Nokia to incorporate their intellectual property into the most common consumer electronic device - the mobile phone.

Very popular are becoming such other services as finding relevant information based on one's location – known as a local search. So as more and more of similar services are continued to be added to mobile devices, the phones are going to have a central part in the mass adoption of local-based services by users. A week ago Nokia presented its N95 handset with GPS technology.
