HTC plans to face Apple lawsuits head-on

HTC plans to face Apple lawsuits head-on
HTC isn't deterred by Samsung's loss to Apple at all, and believes that it has nothing to fear in its own disputes with Apple. Hearing a comment like this from HTC isn't really a surprise though, because it's not like Android manufacturers are going to start running around telling the press that the sky is falling. 

HTC chairperson Cher Wang spoke on the topic at a recent press conference. She said that Samsung's loss doesn't mean the failure of the Android ecosystem as a whole (where have we heard that before?) And, she added that "HTC has great skills in innovation and has the confidence to face legal lawsuits with Apple." 

Wang didn't say so, but it probably also helps to have Google in your corner when going up against Apple. Still, if HTC keeps putting out quality handsets in the HTC One line, the company should feel good about its efforts. We'll have to see how that leaked HTC tablet does though. HTC doesn't have the best history with tablets, and it doesn't help that this one looks suspiciously like an iMac display.

Apple is just being Apple . They'll sue and sue and sue because they know Android is better and will stop at nothing to destroy it so they can monopoly the smartphone market . Greedy , mean , and envious company.

Apple really needs to stop. They are mad that Android has stepped up and becoming better than them. The iPhone is ass and has a small ass screen. It really isn't fair that they think that they're design and software is well rounded. The apple software is one of the worst in my opinion. I can pick out many flaws in their software. I can also find more than a hand full of reasons to sue apple for being like android. If Steve Jobs was alive he would not have done any of this. Tim Cook has really ruined apple. Steve worried about how he could make his device better and not making lawsuits to good companies to make apple look better. All apple looks like now is a joke. Get over yourself apple. its going to be 2013 and Android is going to dominate you and your not gonna see it coming.

Your view is in contrast to established FACTS. Samsung created this situation as the jury found that Samsung knowingly and willingly stole Apple's IP. As you know, Samsung had a chance to invalidate Apple's IP. Samsung had its day in court, it had a fair trial, and it lost it's ASS in court.

you ever hear of appeal...in all your comments you keep on going on as if this case is over believe it or not this is just the begining...if this was the end then apple would already have had got the $1billion and gotten the products banned but guess what apple wont see that money for a while and cant get any products banned until atleast the 6th dec which by then most of these phones wont even be sold.

Please explain how come the case in Korea was a lil different then.... Extremely funny you claim to be a fact checker and be sooo right....when you be sooo wrong.....most of the time. The arrogance you portray is just the vinegar on the cake...and makes it so satisfying to prove you wrong... :) Which happens alot.

dont think htc have much to worry about...most of the samsung trial was around the old tw and who knows maybe htc can invalidate some of apples patents

well sense looks nothing like ios so if they tried to sue htc they'll fail, badly no one can confuse an htc phone with ios

Aeires, you are being a bloviator again. Clearly Apple's just results are causing you some mental anguish as evidenced by your posts of late.

The trial may not be over but Samsung is blowing through hundreds of millions of dollars in legal bill. Samsung set up a $200 million legal chest for 2012 and it looks like it may not be enough. What is NOT helping Samsung is consumers dumping their devices based on the used handset markets.

how do you know its not enough also am sure samsung have plenty of money to put in another 200 if they need to...you do know samsung is not htc and like microsoft,google and apple actually have money to keep this going on forever if they need too.you talking as if this is the end for samsung just cause of this 1 case which is obvioulsy going to be appealed

They are dumping them to buy a S3 or OneX, no way they are downgrading to an iPhone.

i don't see the difference, they're both countries like every where else in the world, you both have mobile devices, america has 4g lte, uk is starting to bring it out and other countries like australia, japan, south korea, china have 4g/lte as well. just because america had it first by only a year + doesn't make you the king of the world. its like saying everywhere but america is a third world country. all countries have and use technology, just some have to wait for the demand to start showing up before telcos start to bring it out. only one telco in australia has 4g/lte right now with the others bringing it in next year.
