HTC makes many phones - including the WinMo based TouchPro/TouchPro2 in my pocket right now.
Sounds to me like Apple has good grounds. MultiTouch has been Apples core patent since the iPhone first appeared. However, there are several other patents as well:
...the complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission specifically calls out the various HTC Android phones (including the Nexus One, Magic/myTouch 3G, Dream/G1, Hero, and Droid Eris) as the main offending products. By going after the biggest Android manufacturer, Apple is putting all Android cell phone makers—and by extension Google— on notice. Is there any doubt now why Google CEO Eric Schmidt had to resign from Apple’s board last year? The battle lines are now drawn.
Nice run down of the patents over at Engadget:
