Sony, Nintendo and Nokia are being sued for allegedly infringing on patents related to the connectivity of handheld gaming devices.

According to this Edge report, a filing on February 13 shows that Texan firm Wall Wireless LLC is suing Sony, Nintendo, Nokia stepping on the toes of US patent 6,640,086, named "Method and Apparatus for Creating and Distributing Real-Time Interactive Media Content Through Wireless Communication Networks and the Internet."

The patent explains that the invention "pertains ... to methods and systems that allow an operator to distribute messages having aural or visual content that is generated by the operator using handheld apparatuses such as mobile telephones."

Good luck with that. More through the link.
