Some of the patents are very old (more than ten years) while some are extremely new. However, many of the alleged patents that have been infringed upon actually call out parts of Android (which HTC builds many of their phones upon, though with an added skin on some) that are prevalent throughout the OS, even on different phones. Is Apple actually calling out Android in general? Here are some sites with various information/insights: Engadget Gizmodo TiPb Android Central As Engadget points out here, It seems as if this is part of a greater war against Android OS as a whole, and not just against HTC. This case is extremely new (just originating today, March 2, 2010) and has yet to be seen in front of any Judge, so no verdict can be made as of yet.
