02 HTC logoAs some of you guys are aware by now, the Apple and Samsung lawsuit has officially kicked off with jury selection, but there are still other legal battles going on, such as the one with HTC. However it has been reported that HTC has since withdrawn a critical patent from its ITC complaint against Apple, bringing down the number of claims to only 2 standard-essential patents. The patent that HTC has withdrawn has been described as, “circuit and operating method for integrated interface of PDA and wireless communication system.” It is unclear as to why HTC decided to drop this alleged critical patent, but with the trial expected to begin in one month’s time, we certainly hope that HTC knows what they’re doing! In the meantime be sure to check back with us regularly as we’ll keep you updated on the ongoing legal situation.
