A couple months ago I reported on Apple taking a less aggressive stance towards Android, and that Tim Cook could actually move the company in a different direction by doing so. Tim Cook stated back in April that he has “always hated litigation. I continue to hate it”, which gave many a glimmer of hope that the silly patent disputes and war against Android could start to slowly come to a close. Well, FORGET IT. This week Apple filed their 3rd challenge against HTC, and claims that they are still infringing on patents that HTC reportedly worked very hard to avoid.

The suit apparently affects 29 different devices, including HTC One X, One S, and One V. Customs recently stopped a shipment of HTC devices from coming into the United States, but fortunately they were released days later after being inspected. Apple however, is apparently still not satisfied.

According to FOSS Patents, here is a list of the 29 phones the filing targets:

  • HTC One X
  • HTC One S
  • HTC One V
  • HTC Inspire 4G
  • HTC Vivid
  • HTC Status
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Sensation 4G
  • HTC Wildfire
  • HTC Wildfire S
  • HTC Hero
  • HTC Hero S
  • HTC EVO 4G
  • HTC EVO V 4G
  • HTC EVO Design 4G
  • HTC EVO 3D
  • HTC Amaze 4G
  • HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE
  • HTC myTouch 4G
  • HTC myTouch 4G Slide
  • HTC Merge
  • HTc Rezound
  • HTC Rhyme
  • HTC ThunderBolt
  • HTC Flyer
  • HTC Jetstream
  • HTC EVO View 4G
  • Droid Incredible 2 by HTC

Apple seems to be trying their luck with HTC since winning the trail against them in December, and going after the One and EVO series is something HTC will no doubt take very seriously. Hopefully, HTC won’t be facing any shipment delays because Apple’s newest complaint.

More details to come as we receive them.
