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.

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.

No one said anything about HTC buying WebOS, or Palm selling off it's IP.

They are too small to make it work, and there will probably be other larger suitors and hedge/private equity funds who will be interested.

And its a hard job to integrate new people, that takes time and usually slows the company down.
