HTC CEO: We already have workaround for infringed Apple patent

HTC’s chief executive officer Peter Chou recently said his company has already developed a solution to dodge an ITC injunction, which was issued after a ruling that found HTC guilty of infringing two of Apple’s patents. “It’s actually quite rarely used,” Chou said of the feature that violates Apple’s patents, suggesting that the company isn’t afraid of the ban that is set to take effect on April 19th. HTC issued a statement following the ITC’s decision and explained that the patent ” is a small UI experience and HTC will completely remove it from all of our phones soon.” In other words, don’t worry too much if you have your heart set on buying HTC’s upcoming Elite flagship device set to launch on AT&T early next year.
