HTC has responded to Apple’s patent lawsuits with their own. In fact, mainly what these infringements are targeted at are the iPad, iPod, and iPhone. Better yet, HTC’s compliant was to the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) to halt the importation of all iProducts mentioned above.
Basically, they’re trying the stop the iPod, iPad, and iPhone from being sold. Giz has obtained some docs claryfing what HTC is suing over, and the answers are: “Two are related to power management, two are over personalized phone dialers, and one’s over a telephone dialer with easy access memory.”
Although you can wait several years until any of this actually results in court dates. Give it your lifetime even. OK, not your lifetime, but give it a few long years. On the other side of the isle, Apple has not responded.
