Motorola today indicated that it has filed a lawsuit with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), alleging that Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and other products infringe on some 18 Motorola patents. The Motorola patents include WCDMA, GPRS, 802.11 and other radio antenna designs. Others patents cover wireless email, proximity sensing, software application management, location-based services and multi-device synchronization. Motorola is requesting that the ITC prevent Apple from importing the infringing products.

It's a wash.

Apple has been holding out on suing Android manufactures, waiting for them to go after them first.

Watch for a news article in the coming weeks; "Apple sues Motorola over wireless patents relating to Android OS"

I'm not saying that Apple DIDN'T refuse to license the technology they are using, what I am saying is that Motorola and Android are "borrowing" enough from iOS to be counter sued.

It's a wash. Just about all [read:ALL] of the OS developers and hardware manufacturers are stealing idea's, concepts and patented tech from one another.

Didn't two other companies already sue Apple for their patents on proximity sensing?? How can these companies sue Apple...and not go after these other ones? That makes no sense and smells kind of funky imo.

Apple ripped off Motorola's extensive R&D when they developed the ROKR. Laughing
