"We are taking this action against Apple to protect our intellectual property, our industry partners, and most importantly our customers that use HTC phones." -HTC

HTC's smart phone success is a big part of why Google's Android OS recently passed Apple's iPhone in market share.  Apple isn't exactly being gracious about its rival's success, though.  It has sued HTC for the supposed violation of 20 patents, including patents that cover using a sliding finger to unlock a phone, using processor undervolting via interrupts, and object oriented graphics.

 



But HTC isn't about to bow to Apple's legal demands.  And it's not about to relinquish its new lead.

Today the company filed countersuit, filing a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC), accusing Apple of violating 5 of its patents.  It is seeking to block the importation of Apple's iPad, iPod, and iPhone from China -- the exact counterpoint of Apple's suit, which seeks to block the import of all HTC's Android handsets from Taiwan.
