HTC Already Has Software Fix for Infringing Smartphones
HTC CEO Peter Chou said on Wednesday that the company has already developed a software workaround so that its Android smartphones will no longer violate Apple's patents. The company also indicated it is testing new models that won't violate the patents. HTC didn't say if or when the software update would be installed on existing or new phones, however. Speaking to media alongside Android chief Andy Rubin, Chou called Apple's legal tactics "unfair" and said that Google and HTC would work together to make sure their Android phones don't violate patents in the future. "This industry should not allow one company use its powerful weapon to stop other innovation and take it all...this is not fair," said Chou. The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled on Monday that HTC violated one of Apple's patents and set a ban blocking HTC imports for April 19, 2012.
