Seems that, as I expected, HTC is NOT going to go down without a fight. And why should they? Apple is playing dirty…

HTC’s CEO Peter Chou said today, “HTC strongly advocates intellectual property protection and will continue to respect other innovators and their technologies as we have always done.” (nice dig at Apple)

“We will continue to embrace competition through our own innovation as a healthy way for consumers to get the best mobile experience possible,” he said.

Good luck to them. I hate all this patent stuff!
