Nokia bans HTC from using STMicroelectronics microphone

Nokia has won a court injunction in Amsterdam that prevents HTC from using a microphone made by STMicroelectronics. The microphone, which is part of the flagship HTC One smartphone, has apparently been developed exclusively for Nokia.

Although the court decision was made in the Netherlands, it applies worldwide. STMicroelectronics has been barred from selling the microphones to anyone except Nokia until March 2014 and will need to compensate Nokia for each microphone sold to anyone else.

HTC has reportedly said it doesn’t expect the decision to have an immediate impact on handset sales.
