Google gives HTC Patents to Sue Apple

Patent battle between HTC and Apple goes into next round with the help of Google.

I am not a fan of patent wars in the technology space. Especially if its about software patents. In most cases consumers lose at the end as innovation and broad availability of products get stifled. Apple is currently trying to slow down the Android camp with patent infringement lawsuits. Samsung and HTC are the most well known targets right now. HTC has got now indirect support from Google. Bloomberg reports that HTC has sued Apple yesterday using a bunch of patents they got from Google.

Looking at what the lawsuit is about, it just shows how lame these patent battles are. The infringed patents are about a way to upgrade software wirelessly, a way to transfer data between a microprocessor and support chip, a method to store user preferences and a way to keep a consistent connection between application software and a radio modem. 

HTC likely just is trying to get to a negotiating point with Apple to settle and move on as most patent infringement cases end.

Update:
Reuters reports that Apple is sueing Samsung in Japan.
