    HTC says they already have the fix in the works. No big deal.

    I doubt that Google and HTC will just give up.

    Very true. Neither will Samsung or RiM or Nokia or anyone else (hopefully).

    "...estimates that the number of patent lawsuits related to the mobile business worldwide is approaching 100"

    It's like a flying Sh1tfest!

    The patent system is seriously broken. Patents are supposed to be limited to non-obvious ideas but none of the patent examiners were born after computers were invented so anything that uses a computer can now be patented. There is probably a patent on using a computer (smartphone) to dial a phone number. I'm going to patent green grass and blue skies so everyone on the planet has to pay me every time they open their eyes. Bwahahaha!!!

    As I said, this is a non-issue:

    so does this mean if I want a htc phone that has the feature to save a number that is sent through text or email then I would have to buy the reZound? Is the Rezound going to be the last htc phone in the US with these features?

    HTC will make it possible to dial the number from the email, but just not save it. That is their workaround for the patent.
    We would still be able to "dial" it, hang up right away and save the last dialed number if that was our goal. Our own workaround in tandem with their workaround. Easy.
    Wonder how much was spent on this lawsuit alone?

    And yes, the Rezound is the latest phone out by HTC. But All Android manufacturers will have to abide by the rules to sell in U.S. and they still have until April 12th (I think)

    The phone that could never truly handle true multitasking now all of a sudden has a patent on it.
    And how do you like the pull down notification shade style of iOS 5?
    Where did that come from?

    Just another reason for me to despise the jerkoffs over at apple and to hate the entire brand!! I would never give that company a penny of my hard earned money!
