HTC Ready To Face Apple In Court, Fully Defend ThemselvesBy cheatmaster 05:46 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments
Today HTC released a dedicated press release to voice out their disagreement with Apple's legal actions against them. Now, we don't know if anyone ever felt excited about being sued but the Taiwanese company obviously felt the need to underline their discontent.
The CEO of HTC Peter Chou is quoted as saying that: "HTC disagrees with Apple's actions and will fully defdiscontinue 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 acquire the best mobile experience possible." Let's see how that goes.
HTC also used the occasion to remind the audience of some of their achievements including the first Windows PDA (1998) the first Windows Phone (June 2002), the first Google Android smartphone (October 2008), etc. We aren't particularly sure what that has to do with whether the company is infringing the Apple's patents or not but still.
Actual court battles probably won't start before 2010 has ended but it will be fascinating to see how this one unfolds.
