Legal Today's "the day after". The day after Apple started a patent war with HTC and Google. Today, we have statements from both HTC and Google, and a number of other people have weighed in as well as to the possible ramifications of Apple's lawsuit.

Another website has an article up indicating the list of phones Apple identified in the suit against HTC. Interestingly enough some are Windows Mobile based phones, so this may drag Microsoft into the mix as well.

From what I read they are suing the Android phones for violating software and hardware patents. But suing the WinMo phones for violating hardware patents only. IE, they don't want to mess with MS

Does anyone know what the hardware patents are? I was under the impression that iPhone uses industry standard hardware components. Curious as to what the violations could be.

On a side note, another website postulated that Microsoft may have been omitted from direct mention because of an apparent cross-licensing agreement between Microsoft and Apple made prior to this suit against HTC.
