Legal I love it when ancient proverbs come to life. If you can't compete, litigate. Right, Nokia? It's suing HTC, RIM, and Viewsonic in the US and Germany over 45 FRAND patents. The world is so predictable, and the technology world even more so. Ever since Microsoft got its claws on this company, its morals and values have been going downhill.

HTC aren't MS's competition. They make a few Windows phones and pay loads of extortion money for MS patents.

But they are virtually Nokia's only competition within the wPhone niche. Between the two of them they have something like 92% of all sales since so-called "7.5", actually 7.10, was released. And Elop's announced strategy is to take sales from the other handset makers in that niche with the goal of increasing product margins after capturing market share.

LG is volunteering to go on hiatus. It would appear that HTC is being encouraged to compete less.
