The patent Gamevice alleges Nintendo is violating is called "Combination Computing Device and Game Controller with Flexible Bridge Section".

Gamevice is suing Nintendo for allegedly infringing the patents used in its Android gaming tablet the Wikipad, and its add-on controllers for phones and tablets, Engadget reported.
