General Development Anyone who did not see this one coming after Microsoft's patent deal with HTC and Apple's meticulousness in avoiding Windows Mobile in its suit against HTC hasn't been paying attention. Microsoft has filed a patent complaint with the US International Trade Commission, as well as a patent lawsuit in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington against Motorola over its Android-based devices.

Apple leaves Moto alone

Maybe Apple and Motorola have I cross-licensing deal I'm not aware of. Back in the pre-Intel Mac days, Motorola provided a large chunk of Apple's CPU requirements. And since Apple was also part of the consortium responsible for the PowerPC architecture, both companies might have signed a cross-licensing deal that's still in effect and now covers smart phones as a byproduct.
