HTC Flyer Tablet, Droid Accused of Infringing Apple Patents

HTC Corp., Asia’s second-largest maker of smartphones, was accused of infringing Apple Inc. patents in a case that may halt U.S. imports of the Taiwanese company’s phones and its new Flyer tablet computers.

Apple claims HTC is infringing five patents related to software architecture and user interfaces in portable electronic devices, hardware for touch screens and movement sensors, according to a complaint filed July 8 with the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington. The complaint is the second Apple has filed against Taoyuan, Taiwan-based HTC.
