This seems absurd..
Even s60v5 has similar feature like this ryt?
to pick contact no and links...
Hey, it's not about Apple or Android but US Patents, How dumb they are to give patent for such obvious features. There is nothing inventing in links in texts.
[deleted post]in your humble opinion....lol
Apple is such a bully. First, they turned the people I love into iDouchebags and now they want to run the whole world. My next mp3 player will be a Sony, that's for sure.
The feature in question is also in nokia phones and did nt originate from ios
Why not Google follow Windows and create something on their own instead of copying and duplicating others success in the veil of open source, freedom and etc but still making money still out of it.
Such feature should not be even granted a patent ....
AnonD-34988, 21 Dec 2011Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I recall older phones (i.e. Sony Ericsson/Nokia featu... moreYou are brave trying to make sense of this .... it also came to me ... we had already had that since 4 ever.
About the article: "the update has to come from Google" - are you sure ?
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I recall older phones (i.e. Sony Ericsson/Nokia feature phones) which was also able to translate phone numbers and urls into links to click on... Didn't they?
This is really getting way out of hand...
Seriously, this is ridiculous, my Sony Ericsson Z530i had this feature much before anyone exept Apple new ANYTHING about iPhone and iOS.
This crap is becoming stupid, trying to sue all concorrence and not trying to do better and more affordable phones.
It is interesting the apple went after HTC for the Android phones only
When HTC windows phone also has the feature
“Monkey know what tree to climb”
This is a perfect example why U.S. customers always get strip down versions of really cool phones. Which make those that don’t know better think that the iPhone was the best phone ever made.
When the rest of the would encourages innovation the “big dogs” in the U.S. always try to tell you “YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE IT BECAUSE WE NOT MAKING MONEY FROM IT”
When will it stop???
“Pay by phone” has been out for years in the East. While the U.S. still fighting each out to pick a slandered. Hell, why can’t I get all the versions there is for “pay by phone” so I can decide which one I want to use when.
i boycott apple products a long time, that's the only way to teach apple to behave and change their litigation behaviour.
Apple is acting like a little bitch i was planning to finally get an ipod just bcos i want it but now am not ganna i wish HTC goes to appeal court and a reasonable gorge over rule this foolishness, apple get reed of ANDROID and you will be swallowed by NOKIA AND MICROSOFT
I hate apple i replace my with an HTC and will never use apple again !!!!
mohammed, 20 Dec 2011HTC always copying some1 or the other..why cant they come up with there own ideas..mohammed
you do know apple did not come up with it. it has been on phones long before apple had a phone. they just took a patent out on it in the U.S. because know other person did.
apple is getting more and more evil in their transactions, there the type that could kill you for ur codes. no disrespect but their jealousy is quite annoying. y'all cant have it all. steve wouldn't support of this, or would he?
