Remember the UMTS patent that HTC has allegedly infringed in Germany?
Initially, IPCom, the company that sued HTC, won the trial against the Taiwanese handset maker, which was threatened with losing the right to sell 3G devices on the German market.
Well, now the initial patent infringement decision was suspended by a German court, so HTC can still commercialize its WinMo and Android handsets across the central European country.
However, the patent infringement will be further investigated, although HTC says that, in fact, the patent IPCom talks about is not even valid.
The two companies will be in front of a German court again, four weeks from now – when the whole matter will hopefully be settled.
