With a high-profiled battle scheduled to happen in the court rooms down the road, there is no doubt that all eyes will be on what the eventual outcome will be in Apple's patent suit against HTC. People have played off HTC as being the biggest challenger to Apple's tight grasp in the smartphone industry – and that they pose the greatest risk with their current line of Android devices. HTC's very own Peter Chou recently commented to the Dutch Telegraph about its impending high profiled patent suit. He went on to say that all of this “is part of the business” and that “we must face it and anyone can go through.” Even though HTC had some humble beginnings, they've been quick to rise above the ranks in the industry as they became a premier force
that looks to continue dishing out a mix of quality smartphones. It makes you wonder about Apple's actions – even though they've accused HTC, they could have easily pointed the finger at another company. And that company would be the one required to deal with Apple – so it may be safe to say that Peter Chou is dead on by saying that it's part of the business. Everywhere you look or turn, we're always hearing about one company
due to patent violations.
