HTC today filed a lawsuit claiming that Apple is violating five of its patents related to mobile technology. The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission, and HTC seeks to prevent Apple from importing the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch into the U.S. Jason Mackenzie, vice president of North America, HTC Corporation, said in a prepared statement, "We are taking this action against Apple to protect our intellectual property, our industry partners, and most importantly our customers that use HTC phones." Mackenzie also pointed out that HTC developed the first Pocket PC Phone Edition device in 2002, and the first Android handset in 2008. Apple sued HTC in March for patent violation. Apple is also suing and being sued by Nokia over wireless patents.

If that Pocket PC phone was so great, how come you had to rebrand it so you didn't have to support it? Laughing

Bringing up your track record is like visiting a museum of fail.

(disclaimer: as former HTC owner)
Alright, you have been showing an obvious Apple bias in all of your posts for a long time, but to insult HTC, the creators of the first toch screen smartphone, is just stupid. Apple wouldn't have a leg to stand on if HTC hadn't blazed the trail. Heck,...

Who's next?

I'm putting my money on the Apple Farmers of America suing over Apple's logo Rolling Eyes
Apple will counter-sue becuase their logo advertises the farmer's product (apples) and they have recieved no money for these advertisements.

Very Happy

Don't all the companies pull all of their resources and lawyers together and sue apple together.

Seems like everyone has taken their jab at them already. Don't get me wrong, I don't care too much for Apple. Just stating the obvious.
