Information has appeared two weeks ago, saying that the HTC Magic could delay
its appearance in Germany, due to an accusation from IPCom for infringed patents, and just recently, new facts have come to light. Germany’s appellate court has suspended the investigation, but it plans to listen to the two companies in four weeks. It appears that the reason for the accusation is the baseband chipset made by the company that supplies HTC with components and therefore it is not intellectual property of the Taiwanese smartphone giant. No matter what the court’s decision is, it won’t affect current HTC customers and the devices already on sale, but will be a problem not only for the Magic, but also for all future products of the company. Obviously, this is something HTC wishes to settle, so it’s already started looking for an alternative solution.
