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.

The sooner manufacturers get this and stop trying to sell handsets based on meaningless numbers to consumers (Megapixel this, gigabyte that) and start _showing_ what the handset can _do_ then the quicker they will beat Apple.

Google doesn't seem to be selling it based on technical specs. But as with anything, the specs are available - I was just noticing an interesting aspect; I expected the iPhone would have had a lot closer spec on the camera than that, especially as it was their new 3GS phone that I was comparing against (the iPhone 3GS+32GB @ $799 vs. the Nexus One $530).

I find it amazing that only Apple advertise what the device can actually do, with zero technical specs involved.

Apple is not the only one; but they sell more on the hype, fashion-ability, and elitism of having an Apple product. They sell on coolness factor alone.

Google is not far behind in playing the same game; though not quite as elitist, and using more common software/hardware than Apple.
