HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang has confirmed that HTC will not make any plans to settle their ongoing patent lawsuit with Apple, regardless of Apple’s recent victory of Samsung. In fact, she not only reaffirmed her company’s position to forge ahead with the suit, but also ruled out plans to settle the case as well.
“Samsung’s defeat does not mean that Google Inc’s Android camp is defeated,” the Chinese-language online news outlet Cnyes.com quoted Wang as saying yesterday.
HTC and Apple have sued each other several times at the US International Trade Commission with the next hearing expected on November 7th. HTC’s position is admirable considering their phones have already undergone a brief ban from entering the US. Best of luck HTC, you just may need it.
