The European Union had strong words for Nokia on Monday: Don't turn into a "patent troll." Speaking at a conference on Monday , European competition commissioner Joaquin Almunia said that while he's fine with Microsoft acquiring Nokia's Devices and Services unit, he's concerned that the mobile maker's decision to hold on to patents and attempt to generate more value through those could create a troublesome scenario.
