Legal Finally - after a few weeks, HTC has actually officially issued a statement regarding the patent infringement lawsuit Apple has thrown towards the Taiwanese phone maker. As you probably already anticipated, HTC states it will fully defend itself against Apple. It's on, it's on.

So what? You guys in USA will not have Android (as we know it) anymore and will basically have only WIndows Mobile, Apple and Nokia as options.


... if Android would fail in the US market (which won't happen) because Apple sue to death all phone makers using it, nobody else would have it. Not even you.. wherever you are.

Lol! I'm sorry, what? The European market is far larger than the US, not to mention south-east Asia. It'd be a shame for HTC to have to stop producing phones for the US but the US is far from being the world, mate.

Wow. Just, wow!

A more likely outcome is that a limited choice of hyper-expensive proprietary software would have the US market, and the sane rest of the world uses open source. FOSS would become virtually illegal in the US, and the only viable option everywhere else.

Costs of doing business in the US would become sky high because of incessant legal squabbling, and actually come down everywhere else. The US will withdraw within itself, its products would be laughably expensive everywhere else, and therefore ignored, so the US would choke under hyper-inflation, its currency would become useless everywhere else, and the US would be unable to afford food from anywhere else.

FYI, US exports, not imports food. You couldn't even look that one up on Wiki? All that will really happen in this deluded fantasy is Americans won't be able to purchase lead filled toys from China lol.
