Motorola sued by Apple over Multitouch on Android smartphones

Posted: 30 Oct 2010 11:12 PM PDT

It seems like there are more and more patent lawsuits with each day that passes. Apple in this case is the predator, while Motorola is the prey. They are suing over the multitouch on the majority of their Android smartphones.

As well as the multitouch, Apple is also suing over:

  • Object-Oriented System Locator System
  • Touch Screen Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Determining Commands by Applying Neuristics
  • Method and Apparatus for Displaying and Accessing Control and Status Information in a Computer System.
  • Support for Custom User-Interaction Elements in a Graphical, Event-Driven Computer System.

This lawsuit will take a while, so don’t expect an immediate result. If Motorola ends up losing, they will have to change these aspects about their new phones or pay a very large sum of money to Apple. Check out all the info on the patent lawsuit on the source link shown below.

T-Mobile’s date for Distribution of FroYo for MyTouch 3G extended

Posted: 30 Oct 2010 11:54 AM PDT

When word was received that T-Mobile would be upgrading the MyTouch to Android OS 2.2, people were ecstatic. They could almost taste that FroYo in their mouths, but now they will have to wait just a bit longer.

T-Mobile originally planned to release Android OS 2.2 for MyTouch 3G users by October 25th, but T-Mobile gave an update on the status in their official forums. The date has been officially pushed back until December 15th. There was no specific reason for the push back, but T-Mobile must have had a good reason for it. Oh well, MyTouch 3G users will just have to wait another two months or so, but until we’ll keep you updated on a change of date or if it comes out before December 15th.
