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.

I agree. If I had the money I would sue Apple to disclose the source code for everything they are suing people over. Patents are for the promotion of the progress of useful arts. It is so the public can know how your invention works. If you don't disclose how your invention works (source code) you are not promoting the progress of useful arts.
