This is all just getting out of hand.
Blame Apple. It is a fact. This all started when Apple decide to litigate like crazy.
why apple? not only nokia and now htc too... shame on you apple!!!
Just want to remind you again, that different phone fans got along splendidly here (and phone companies got along quite well together) right until the moment Apple came in. Things changed that day. Now do you really think that it's not Apple that changed this harmony? Or Apple supporters? Use your grey cells people.

HTC has been creating innovative phones for a decade. An example, HTC has been using a standard power / data connection on all of the products that is shared by other manufactures. Apple has three phones with two proprietary input ports. an obvious money grubbing behavior that's clear negative enviromental impacts.
HTC has been a niche market player with steadily increasing market share. They continue to produce a huge variety of innovative products. an example is the HTC advantage which is a small tablet that was being marked years prior to iTablet.
HTC was & is pushing other phone manufacture to improve.

The paranoia in the Nokia fanbois has them suddenly slagging off the iphone, even when it hasnt been mentioned and the detractor isnt even an Apple fan.
Take the C5 review comments for example. Someone says it looks kind of ipod ish, and suddenly theres an anti Apple post moments later ;))
Seriously, it shows the fear and loathing that Fanbois have for Apple.
Apple think they can get away with anything nowdays,put people just wonder why the iPhone was such a brilliant idea,but the other companies realised Apple was stealing there ideas behind there backs,an were losing money an the shares in the mobile market,but Nokia an Htc an i bet some other companies are at last finding out the Best Way stop the iPhone interfering with the ideas,hope Apple get really charged an the 4g iPhone banned from being released

I noticed that these starting posts usually consist of something like "iphone rocks" or something lame, unlike any Apple story where the level of bile and hate is extreme to say the least.
it's really sad that some non-technical lawyers & a jury that has no expertise in communications will decide these truly complicated patent issues. the outcome of patent cases are notoriously fickle with technical merits having almost no bearing on the outcome of the court case. The likeable of the legal teams is much more important. That's why both parties normally want to settle prior to trial.
this case is probably mostly about creating cost risk for Apple to encourage them to settle with HTC out of court.
the gsmarena forums has completely reversed my attitude towards apple. When a post of my real world experience with an iPhone 3G was viciuosly attached. It's sad when an American company attempts to shout down those who exercise the uniquely American right to free speech. I have made it a point to point out weakness in apple phones every since.

Click on just about any popular phone by any brand here (SE, Nokia, HTC, BB, Samsung) and go to the opinions page. You'll bump into an arrogant iphone lover right from the start.
Steve Jobs is a genius! HTC could only design phones like they do now thanks to Nokia. HTC were nothing before the iPhone was released. Their phones are influenced by the magical iPhone.
Listen up, just because Apple users love the iPhone dont mean we go around bashing other phones. But if fools come into an Apple debate saying that Apple is rubbish and greedy and blah blah blah then we have to defend the iPhone. If people go around bashing phones in other forums then thats sad. End of.
Now onto Apple being American. I aint American but I love the iPhone. Its nothing to do with USA or UK or wherever. Its to do with the brand. Microsoft is US, Hollywood is US, so what? We love the stuff so thats the important thing, I dont care where it comes from.
The fact of this main issue is HTC are trying to milk money outta a Company thats doing better than them. HTC are wobbling that after several good models released lately the iPhone is still the more popilar choice. So they do what any jealous company might wanna do. Take a short cut and try and sue them! Well done HTC, your users will be so proud of you. But you will fail as Apple are innocent until proven guilty.
maybe if you lot quit arguing about which phone is better, you wouldnt use iporn so much, get a life people, and try sticking to the subject.
Apple copies patents of good companies like nokia, htc and create mobile and they market it as it is the best in world. Stealing others hardwork is worst thing.

Your last one is false, and is based on arrogant assumptions & flawed stereotypes, ironically. I know many Americans, like myself, who detest the apple corporation. They are the Vatican of mobile phone industry. You may want to reevaluate your views on people, arrogance and ignorance is not only limited to Americans. Its global.

The issue is about Apple vs HTC, but the Apple fans reflect their beloved company's policy into the real world discussions. You can't get away with that. Maybe it has something to do with being American. Arrogance might be a trait one is born with. Apple = american company, with american following. The results are evident in this discussion.
WTF???, 13 May 2010iPhone haters cannot stand success and a good phone, just because they havent a phone as good ... morewhy do people argue over which phone is better?! you lot at school or something? all phones will have pro's and con's, weigh them up, make a descision, simples! and why on earth has IQ been brought up? i would imagine that the people participating in a tennis match of insults have a lower IQ than anyone, not to mention a distinct lack of interesting things that happen in their lives, maybe if you spent less time on here arguing about phones, you wouldnt need to use iporn quite so much
..Apple's CEO is a guy who talks alot and thinks that he is hell of a great. He thinks what ever Apple makes are brilliant. Everytime they come up with something new, they will show off as though a star fell off the sky. They are practically cheating consumers by talking high of their product which is not as good as other products such as htc and nokia. Apple should kick off their CEO.......
