The Apple/HTC Lawsuit: All About Chrome OS?

by Ostatic Staff - Mar. 04, 2010

You have probably heard about the lawsuit Apple has filed against HTC--the big handset maker--claiming patent infringement. Apple doesn’t like what HTC is doing with Android on phones it is selling in the U.S., and claims that HTC infringes on numerous iPhone patents. In a post today, our friends at jkOnTheRun argue that the real impetus for the suit may be Apple's concern over Google's upcoming Chrome OS. Chrome OS is the open source operating system based on the Chrome browser that is likely to end up on tablets that will compete with Apple's iPad, and elsewhere. Check out jkOnTheRun's analysis of why Chrome OS has Apple worried.
