This brings up an interesting and somewhat unrelated point. OK if Apple is suing or otherwise embroiling in legal actions HTC, which also happens to be one of Google's partners on the hardware end of the Android Smartphone's. How long do you think it will take before Google steps into the fray.
Apple and Google work somewhat together and one of there board members is also co-engaged. In the end Apple is at least on the consumer level the leader of the pack of the Smartphone market, where Google in this same market is number two pretty much as a device, and with an app store right.
So when is Goggle who I would also say with a considerably lower age as a market player, also has more resources not to mention capital than Apple does. So in a large way development such as this (Google/Android) introduction to the Apple market. Also completes another goal of making Google/Android a recognized innovator to the Apple app store faithful, which in the long run also weakens Apple to a degree.
If the much newer, but also much larger dinosaur as well as direct competitor to Apple on the newest part of the computing market, also gets itself embedded in Apple to any degree. Then it is much easier to defeat any army from the inside IE: as a Trojan Horse right. I don't specifically know anything on this it is just the way I see it looking in.
Actually, Apple is sitting on an M$ size pile of resources, $40B in liquid assets (yes, BILLION).

@Rapid - nice thought.. I guess its only some time before Google jumps the gun and files for infringement against Apple. That should be fun to follow.
@ InfinityzeN - Wow.. That's a lot of money

Exactly Apple is sitting on 40 billion I am sure M$, Google Nokia etc were just waiting for them to get a nice load before it was worth it for them to pay there legal teams to steal there pants and underwear, and leave em in the middle of the highway at 4:59. Remember, that's a lotta companies with very high end taste's to please. Splitting anything less than at least 30 billion would not be enough, and the exec bonus's they have to pay for the first half of the year for all of them.
