    Apple are suing HTC.
    One of the patents involved is that concerning MultiTasking :rolleyes:

    This is why I hate Apple, they are so anti-competitive and so focused on money and nothing else. Fair enough if the technologies they use are just small little competitive advantages, but the technologies that they have patented are significant advances for mobile technology and to allow only a single company to employ all of these without competition is madness. It completely destroys all competitiveness and progress within the market.

    To be honest, it actually makes me angry that Apple were granted some of those patents. Some of them are just insane.

    I think she was referring to the fact that one of the patents that Apple have is to do with multitasking, which is a bit odd as ipods don't multitask.

    I thought that patent was a bit odd as well...

    Apple are well known for patenting things then never using the patents.

    Fun fact: Apple patented the term iPod in either the late 80's or early 90's, not for a portable music player, but for an internet browsing station not too dissimilar to what you'd find in a web cafe!

    No.
    Legend is released in March and Desire in April so it shouldn't be long.

    The leaked Eris 2.1 ROM is from December '09 so hopefully it has come a long way and is close to, if not already, working.

    It's a lot buggier than the Eris one because the Eris' hardware is so similar to the Hero's.

    Apparently with the first release you couldn't turn the phone off... lol
