PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are various trains of thought regarding Apple suing HTC, and one of them is that Apple feels threatened by Android's rise in popularity. Some laughed this away, but when you look at recent statistics regarding mobile web usage, it becomes pretty clear Apple has every reason to feel threatened by Google's mobile operating system.

Apple is very different from Google and from other mobile companies like Nokia. They prefer closed ecosystems, and they try to monopolize everything on mobile experience, from apps development to media consumption in general. I do have an IPhone and a Symbian based device and I can do a lot more on the Symbian. Iphone OS interface and the apps are cleaner but I still prefer the Symbian openess (I can install multiple apps, from multiple repositories, develop my own without permission from anyone, browse and download ebooks, music, sync with 3rd party apps or by drag and drop, etc, etc).
