HTC files a complaint against Apple, wants iPhone out of USA

13 May, 2010

Today HTC filed a complaint against Apple with the United States International Trade Commission. According to HTC, Apple has infringed five HTC patents and its law department insists on halting the importation and sales of the iPhone, iPod and iPad in the USA.

As usual halting the sales on a top product(s) is a standard request in these cases. It's interesting that HTC hasn't filed a lawsuit on that matter yet, it's just that complaint to the Trade Commission.

According to Gizmodo the five related patents are:

  • two for power management
  • two concerning personalized phone dialers
  • one over a phone dialer with easy memory access

As you may have heard, Apple is already suing HTC on patent matters. HTC have responded they are ready to meet in court. No matter who wins this, it won't be easy and surely it will take a while.
