Well it looks like Apple has won this little battle, and HTC handsets will banned from being sold in the USA, until HTC remedies what they call “easily removable” So if its so “easily removable,” why did they mess up in the first place?
Some of these devices include the following:
- HTC EVO 4G
- Verizion HTC Droid Incredible
- AT&T HTC Aria
- HTC T-Mobile G2
The ruling comes after it was agreed that HTC does indeed infringe upon one of Apple’s patents, namely patent number 5,946,647. The patent itself is a system level patent which dates back to 1999 and could potentially be linked back to Google’ android’s mobile operating itself. This would mean that all Android hardware would potentially be at risk of falling foul of the patent, meaning HTC could just be the tip of the iceberg for Apple’s legal eagles.
The decision now goes to the desk of the president, who has 60 days to issue a rarely-used veto; the ban itself will go into effect on April 19, 2012 to provide HTC with a transition period, and HTC will be allowed to import refurbished products for warranty replacement purposes until December 19, 2013.
I wonder what will happen? We shall see! One thing is for sure, with Google owing HTC basically, this could be an interesting match to see what the Large Google giant does with this situation.
