Klausner Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has filed suit against HTC Corp. for patent infringement under its U.S. Visual Voicemail patents.
The lawsuit is based on the unveiling by HTC of its Android-powered MyTouch 3G mobile phones, which use Klausner Technologies’ Visual Voicemail patented technology. Various other HTC models with the Visual Voicemail feature are already covered under Klausner Technologies Visual Voicemail patent licenses granted to certain mobile operators for their Visual Voicemail services.
Klausner Technologies currently has 27 Visual Voicemail patent licensees under its U.S., European and Asian patents, including major U.S. and European mobile operators, international cell phone manufacturers, cable/VOIP providers as well as other providers of Visual Voicemail services.
The suit has been filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Texas by the California law firm of Dovel & Luner.
HTC is already subject to litigation from Apple for patent infringement related to their other Android-based offerings.
