|Apple has taken legal action against phone maker HTC, alleging it has infringed patented technology. |
HTC has been accused of infringing 20 patents owned by Apple that are used in the iPhone.
Apple said the patent infringements covered technology used in the iPhone interface as well as its "underlying hardware and architecture."
HTC makes phones for many firms including Google and was behind the Nexus One handset.
I was under the impression Android was built from scratch.
I really donít think HTC used any of Apple's code, maybe some of their interface ideas for which I think its a desperate measures from Apple.
