Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Member since:

I wrote a very brief article on this myself.

It reads like this (and pardon the flame-bate, but Job's comments hit a nerve)

Once again, Apple chooses to lead by hypocrisy and sue a technology giant that has been building iPhone-like handsets long before the iPhone was even a message from God *ahem* Jobs.

In a statement published by the BBC, Apple boss Steve Jobs said: "We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it.

"We've decided to do something about it," he said. "We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours."

So I'll be expecting Apple to concede to Nokia's demands in their patent trial then....
