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.

Apple will need deep pockets

At the moment Apple is going to be spending some dollars on lawyers to say the least.

When will these companies realise that the only people that win by this litigations are the lawyers.

Time to review patent laws I think, this whole scenario is just purely dumb. Spend the dollars innovating and not hiring lawyers.

If they pursue these issues too far they run the risk invalidating their patents, so will they settle for cross-licensing ?

We are in for some interesting events on the phone front
