Apple Sues Motorola Over Multi-touch

Considering how popular multi-touch technology is on touchscreen smartphones nowadays, it isn’t too surprising to hear that Apple has filed patent infringement suits against Motorola, claiming that the multi-touch that it uses includes Apple-owned intellectual property. Reports are going around that Apple filed two separate suits against the big M over six different patents, mainly related to Motorola’s smartphones such as the Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Cliq, Cliq XT, Devour A555, Devour i1 and Charm. The outcome of this legal wrangle won’t be clear anytime soon, but hopefully both companies will be able to sort out their differences amicably and we’ll be able to continue enjoying multi-touch technology on various platforms.
