HTC Responds to Apple

HTC Responds to Apple

Product imageApple’s lawsuit against HTC last week has finally led to a reponse from HTC and they are coming out fighting.

The main complaint against HTC, by the fruity company Apple, is that they infringe on 20 patents and have copied innovative ideas from directly from Apple. Apple is protecting its smartphones from HTC for its designing the Google Nexus One.

HTC have turned around and let the world, and Apple, know that it strongly believes in intellectual property laws:

““HTC disagrees with Apple’s actions and will fully defend itself. HTC strongly advocates intellectual property protection and will continue to respect other innovators and their technologies as we have always done, but we will continue to embrace competition through our own innovation as a healthy way for consumers to get the best mobile experience possible,” said Peter Chou, chief executive officer, HTC Corporation.”

The press release lists some of the innovations HTC has been responsible for in the industry including

    * First Windows PDA (1998)

    * First Windows Phone (June 2002)

    * First 3G CDMA EVDO smartphone (October 2005)

    * First gesture-based smartphone (June 2007)

    * First Google Android smartphone (October 2008)

    * First 4G WIMAX smartphone (November 2008)

The picture above is The T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition by HTC, the first 3.5-inch color touch screen smartphone in the United States released in 2002.

It looks like HTC is not going to lie down and take the lawsuit by Apple lightly – the impact of the lawsuit has already meant that HTC has modified its product range. Unfortunately IP infringement cases can be lengthy and are always expensive. Google has stated, that even though it is not a named party in the lawsuit, it will is supporting HTC.
