PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, the new HTC phones are facing delays in the US, and they now ship with a slightly modified US-specific Android build which removes data tapping and sports an altered app associations screen to avoid Apple's patents. This is step one. Step two is companies avoiding the litigious and anti-consumer messes that are the US and German markets altogether. Clearly, IP laws are working to the benefit of the consumer and the market as a whole. Great work guys.

Doing what they should have been doing in the first place, shipping products that don't infringe on someone else's patents without first licensing those patents. What a concept! Good for them.
