HTC – Apple suit “unlikely to have significant impact … in near term”



HTC issued a response to Apple’s patent law suit filed yesterday, insisting it has developed its technology, including its iconic HTC Sense user interface, in-house  and has a 13 year history of rolling out innovative smartphones.

In what may be good news for US readers expecting the HTC HD2 soon, HTC also stated it believes that the patent complaint is unlikely to result in a significant impact on its operations in the near team, or affect its business guidance for the first quarter of 2010.

Apple has claimed a number of software and hardware patent infringements, many of them attacking fundamental OS operations found in the open source Linux core of Android, which may see Apple taking on a much larger pantheon of companies than they initially expected.
