Microsoft And yes, the legal news just continues to come. With high-profile lawsuits going on in the world of technology (Nokia vs. Apple, Apple vs. HTC), we really can't get around lots and lots of news about the subject. This latest tidbit we have for you is most interesting, and only serves to further confirm the rumours that Bing might become the default on the iPhone: Microsoft has more or less endorsed Apple's lawsuit against HTC.

Since Microsoft is tipping their hand

HTC should dump Windows Mobile all together, then license Simbian or WebOS instead as an alternative smartphone OS to Android. That would piss off MS wouldn't it? Plus it would help Palm if they licensed WebOS.
Not that any of that would happen, but it would certainly be a punch in the eye for Microsoft and would be down right funny if several of the other Android phone makers followed suit to avoid the same pitfalls.

I think dropping WP7 for Palm's WebOS would be an idiotic business decision that would be complete fail for HTC.

I agree it would be interesting for HTC to make WebOS phones or Symbian phones however are they big enough to dedicate enough resources behind each platform?

Why would it be a bad move for HTC to buy WebOS? Palm is about to close shop. Their IP will be sold at fire sale prices.
