Yet another company is irate that the iPhone is doing so well, or at least believes that Apple stole the technology to make it do so well in the first place. A small company has filed a lawsuit against Apple, claiming that the tech giant has violated a patent that they were recently awarded, which details a technology to display websites on small phone screens.
The company has not decided to sue makers of other smartphones, such as RIM or HTC, despite the fact that both of them making dozens of phones capable of mobile web browsing. Targeting Apple certainly seems to directly correspond to their current popularity and even a spokesperson for the company said that they “only looked” at the iPhone. With the number of competing and overlapping technologies, it seems companies are content with suing each other into oblivion rather than accepting the fact that more than one person could come up with similar ideas.
