i've said it before and i'll say it again. if you invent/conceive or patent you quite usually allways develop it first. otherwise its just an idea in your head and its anybodys game. there were no mobile phone OS's let alone multitouch capabilities on the mobile market [anywhere similar to the iphone] prior to the iphone.killall Terminal

HTC/Google are definitely good enough that they should be able to make their own sweet software and not have to use ideas that Apple has already put on the iPhone. Obviously Android has a cool pattern unlock that they came up with so we know they can do things on their own, so why keep using Apple's slide to unlock on their products? They have the resources and money to make something unique to them so why not do it?
I don't think its very competitive using the same idea on something like that when it would be so easy to make something of your own for your device, something that your customers will be able to enjoy and connect with from your products.

Quick! You're fanboyism is showing!
While Apple is a good company, this is a blantant and ridiculous move to kill off the competition.
Android is gaining fair share of the market, and so Apple does the only thing they can do. Sue.
It's obvious that Steve Jobs wants his device to be the news talk of the day again, but with a device that's so closed out of the box unlike the Android OS, that's not gonna happen.
Of course Apple Fanboys such as yourself will defend it till the death saying they need to be more original.
Deep down inside you know Apple set the bar, and companies are meeting that bar, and because they're finally meeting it, Apple is whining like little kids.

Sure Android is gaining ground. They will surpass the iPhone simply by the number of phones that are running it. If you have 10 different models of phones running android and 3 models of iPhones running the iPhone OS naturally Android will prevail. However, no one single model of Android will sell more than the iPhone. Not going to happen.

I'm for Apple on this one only because it is patented. If it's patented then it's a close case. Don't copy it, create something different, and move on. Same goes for Apple in the case of Nokia. If Apple took something from Nokia then, Apple needs to create something different and move on. Patents are here so that things that companies create wont get ripped off and misused. It is there so that companies can create a different technology under their intelligence...not from someone else. All of these Android OS mimic the iPhone OS that's why i haven't switched to them. There's not much originality in it. But there are features that i do like. Any who, that's my 2 cents....

Why are they picking on HTC?? Just because the HD2 is so damn awesome? Why don't the early mobile manufacturers sue Apple like Nokia or Motorola etc?
Glad Nokia is suing Apple, Apple have become sucky since last year.

I love how the basis of all of these concerns are surrounded by multi-touch. Everybody disregards the other patents and only focuses on multi-touch lol. Poor androids...

I have been readin these posts, and I don't have an iPhone or a Droid, but my friends do. The Droid seems soo much like an iPhone to me. Just to let you know also, Im posting from my iPod Touch. Apple may be being hypocrytical, but from my understanding, Nokia didn't patent any multitouch thing at all, so what the hell are they suing Apple for?? I think that these other companies need to keep it real, they need to invent their own ****, I mean, Google is smart enoughto create their own software, and so is Nokia and all of them other companies. I won't bash T-Mobile, because they have been creating touch screen phones too; but they differentiate from he iPhone and iPhone 3g And the iPhone 3gS. But, in my opinion, these other companies need to get their crap together, and get to the top by being ORIGINAL!!! Apple was NOT original with the multitouch, but they were original with everything else. P.S. I'm NOT an Apple fanboy. Matter of a fact, I would sail my iPhone down the Columbus river in a basket with hpes in it for a chance to get a Blackberry Curve... my mom and dad have one. They are soo cool, what with The Blackberry App World and other stuff? Totally beastastic!!!
Sorrry, I meant that I would sail my iPhone down The Columbus River in a basket with holes in it. I don't have an iPhone though. I stays with T-Mobile because they're not bashing, and theyre not getting bashed, like AT&T and Verizon. But yeah, that was just an expression
