I didn't even know that they had their LTE up and running or even planning to roll it out before mid to late fall. Well... good for them. It will be interesting to see how long they keep their unlimited data plans or will the just be for 3G, for now?

It wasn't so much a ban as the ITC saying "As long as HTC phones are violating this one patent, then they can't import those phones into the US."

You'd be surprised. But, of they were the first to do it, they can apply for a patent for it.

International Trade Commission judge recommends US import ban on 4GB and 250GB Xbox 360 slim consoles amid ongoing patent dispute with Motorola.

The ongoing legal dispute between Motorola Mobility and Microsoft could see some versions of the Xbox 360 banned in the United States.

Shaw wants Xbox 360s banned from import to the United States.

Shaw wants Xbox 360s banned from import to the United States.

Sales of consoles already in the United States should be banned by a cease-and-desist order, Shaw says. On top of this, the judge re...

Jellz, where did you find this delicious detail? I had no idea what the actual issue was (or issues were), but I was pleasantly surprised how quickly the ITC made a decision.

Thank you for the link. It's mindbogling to have this crazyness for one little feature or patent out of thousands that go into each smartphone. And the problem wasn't even there. There needs to be a better way.
