HTC may face sales ban follwing loss in Nokia patent lawsuit

This is a bit of bad news HTC could certainly have lived without. As troubles continue to mount for the struggling Taiwan-based smartphone vendor, it was dealt another blow on Monday afternoon when the U.S. International Trade Commission found that several HTC smartphones infringe two Nokia-owned patents. The ITC found HTC innocent of infringing a third patent. An injunction preventing HTC from importing several smartphone models could be issued as a result, though it wouldn’t impact the vendors latest smartphones. According to Reuters, the HTC Amaze 4G, Inspire 4G, Flyer, Jetstream, Radar 4G, Rezound and Sensation 4G are the only devices covered in the case. As HTC weighs its options, Nokia was quick to issue a statement. ”Nokia is pleased that the initial determination of the ITC confirmed that HTC has infringed two of our patents,” was all the soon-to-be-former Finnish smartphone maker had to say.
