US company GPNE Crop is suing Apple for direct infringement of claims on its patent, which was issued in China in 2001.

The lawsuit accuses Apple's iPhone and iPads of infringing on patents it owns.

It's being reported that GPNE has revised its damage claim to about 130 million U.S. dollars, the highest amount of this kind of compensation here in China.

Founder and inventor of the Hawaii-based company Gabriel Wong says the patent relates to the general packet radio service.

Wong says the patent has received patent protection rights in 14 countries, including China, USA and Japan.

Before accusing Apple, the company consecutively sued manufacturers like Motorola, BlackBerry, HTC and Huawei in regard to so called patterns infringements.

So far, Apple has made no comment on the allegations.
