Nokia to become a patent troll?

ARS Technica reports Nokia confirmed that it plans to continue to leverage its giant patent portfolio to make money. The site says one of the implications of this is that Android handset makers may get sued twice because Nokia can go after phone makers for royalties, even ones that have already paid Microsoft.
IP experts who spoke to Reuters said that Nokia's unusual decision to not sell the patents along with the business means that it has other plans for recouping value from those patents. While Nokia is not a "patent troll" because it will continue to have an operating business, it is effectively embracing a similar strategy. The combination of a powerful patent portfolio and no operating phone business to counter-sue will make Nokia a formidable opponent in court.
