Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Also, WinMo was out long before iPhone.

Member since:

Apple can't really argue that WinMo violates iPhone patents. And they likely won't argue it for WinPhone 7 Series, since that looks unlike anything in the phone market.

Regarding the alleged Android infractions against iPhone, I wonder why Apple doesn't go after Google directly rather than going after HTC (as far as the Android issues are concerned); and why Apple singled out HTC amongst all makers of Android phones.
