Patent battle continues between Nokia and Apple with 13 more disputed patents

The fun doesn't stop in the ongoing Nokia/Apple patent dispute; the Finnish cell phone manufacturer has now filed claims in three European countries alleging Apple infringement on 13 additional patents, beyond the 24 patents already covered in the existing US and International Trade Commission filings.
Nokia has chosen to file claims on four patents in the UK High Court, seven patents in district court in Dusseldorf, five in Mannheim and two in the Hague. I'm not a patent lawyer (to say nothing of an international intellectual property expert), so I can't say why there's a split between the two German courts, but the company also filed separate claims in the US's Federal courts in two states (Wisconsin and Delaware).
These patents cover technologies that Nokia claims are used in the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, among other products. They include on-device app stores, touch user interface elements, caller ID and more.
Apple, of course, isn't standing idle on the patent litigation front. Over the past year, the company has retained top legal talent to help defend against Nokia, Motorola and other patent challengers while pressing Apple's own counterclaims of patent infringement.
