PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Apple sued HTC, and targeted Android specifically (news which came out of the blue), many people, including myself, were convinced this was Apple letting the world know they were afraid of Android's rising popularity. This notion was laughed away by many an Apple fan, but it turns out that this is most likely far closer to reality than many dare to admit: in the first quarter of 2010, Android conquered the number two market share spot from the iPhone in the US - and by a wide margin too. Update: Added a graph which better shows the trend.

Once again it's so amusing seeing the double standards here.
Let's recap:

a.) AVC/h.264 is bad, because it's patented in some parts of the world.

b.) Novell is bad, because it entered a cross-licensing deal for patents with Microsoft.

c.) Android is covered by patents owned by Microsoft and HTC licensed them from MS. http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2010/apr10/04-27mshtcpr.ms...
But hey, somehow nobody cares about this.
