HTC Slaps Apple With Patent Infringement Lawsuit…. Shock, Not

For those of you who were wondering how HTC would respond to being hit with a patent infringement lawsuit a couple months ago by Apple, here’s your answer via a HTC press release:

“As the innovator of the original Windows Mobile PocketPC Phone Edition in 2002 and the first Android smartphone in 2008, HTC believes the industry should be driven by healthy competition and innovation that offer consumers the best, most accessible mobile experiences possible,” said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of North America, HTC Corporation. “We are taking this action against Apple to protect our intellectual property, our industry partners, and most importantly our customers that use HTC phones.”

It almost goes without saying that HTC wants to stop Apple from importing and selling the iPhone, iPad, and iPod in the US as that is usually what happens in cases like these.

Game on folks!
