Nokia has brought to a close the legal proceedings it began against rival mobile phone maker Vitelcom last November, the Finnish giant said today.

In a terse statement, Nokia said it had reached a settlement with the Spanish company. While the exact terms of the agreement were not disclosed, the deal sees the two companies cross-licensing their patents. The licences were described as "royalty bearing".

In November 2004, Nokia accused Vitelcom of ripping off some of its GSM/GPRS patents. At the same time, it alleged French mobile phone company Sagem of ripping off its handset designs, and fired off lawsuits at both firms seeking monetary damages. ®
