The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Tuesday it will investigate a complaint by Nokia Technologies alleging that Apple (AAPL) has imported smartphones, tablet computers, and other electronics that infringe upon its patents.

The USITC said in a statement it had not yet made any decision on the merits of the case by the Finland-based Nokia (NOK) unit, which is seeking a cease and desist order and a limited exclusion order in the case.
