Legal Today's "the day after". The day after Apple started a patent war with HTC and Google. Today, we have statements from both HTC and Google, and a number of other people have weighed in as well as to the possible ramifications of Apple's lawsuit.

What will make this all very interesting is when SCOTUS delivers its ruling on Bilski (expected June 2010); also expected in that ruling is whether or not software patents are allowed in the USA - with many expecting software patents will be dissolved. This would directly affect cases like this one - leaving Apple to fend itself over hardware related patents only.

Oddly though - comparing the top-of-the-line iPhone to the Nexus One, the Nexus One has better hardware in almost all ways - including a 5-6 Megapixel camera compared to the iPhone's 2-3 megapixel camera.
