HTC says it will fully Defend itself Against Apple

HTC and Apple are embroiled in a legal battle right now that started early this month when Apple sued HTC for alleged patent infringement. The suit is over patents that go along with the touchscreen tech that Apple owns and uses in the iPhone. HTC has vigorously denies any wrongdoing in the case and has now announced that it disagrees with Apple's actions and plans a vigorous defense against the suit.

HTC issued a statement saying, "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. "From day one, HTC has focused on creating cutting-edge innovations that deliver unique value for people looking for a smartphone. In 1999 we started designing the XDA(i) and T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition(ii), our first touch-screen smartphones, and they both shipped in 2002 with more than 50 additional HTC smartphone models shipping since then."

HTC points out that it in fact had the first touchscreen device to ever come to America way back in 2002 with the T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition with a 3.5-inch touchscreen. HTC also lays claim to the first touchscreen smartphone in the world with the O2 XDA circa 2002. We can only wait and see how this who saga pans out, if Apple wins there will be some major issues for many HTC owners.
