Zombies moan, as they inch nearer and nearer. You’re seemingly surrounded by the brainless horde, and only armed with one option: your trusty machine gun. You violently smash the trigger, as you vigorously twirl in circles, attempting to cover each side. Undead corpses collapse at your feet; when you hear
I mentioned earlier how great the method for adding music to an Android phone was, then I find this useful tip from HTC on how to extend the battery life on their new "iPhone Killer" Evo 4G.
HTC Corporation today outlined its disagreement with Apple's suit against the company and reiterated its commitment to keep producing new devices.
"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.
Nokia and Apple may want to go toe to toe in the legal ring right now, but they're being told to wait a bit.
According to Macworld, the International Trade Commission has told both parties that it must complete its own probe, which was scheduled to take 45 days after it agreed to perform the investigation on February 22nd, then the lawsuit will presumably move forward. That's if it's still on and not settled by then, although Nokia seems determined to win it, and Apple apparently has enough bandwidth to handle two lawsuits at once.
Following up on Apple's lawsuit against device maker HTC regarding a matter of 20 patents, Google offered the following statement:
"We are not a party to this lawsuit. However, we stand behind our Android operating system and the partners who have helped us to develop it," said a Google spokesperson in an article over on TechCrunch.
Although it seems a little weird that Google would offer this comment, there is the fact that HTC's devices, including the Nexus One, the Magic/myTouch 3G, the Dream/G1, the Hero and the Droid Eris currently run on Google's Android operating system. Per the popular Nexus One, Google worked closely with HTC to make the device, and is completely in control of selling it.
Apple announced in a press release earlier today that they are filing a lawsuit against handset manufacturer HTC for patent infringement concerning technology used in the iPhone. While they didn't state it outright, the suit is clearly because HTC is the largest manufacturer of Android OS devices, and most notably the Nexus One. You can check out a list of the complaints below.
