HTC Could Block iPhone 5?

HTC is pursuing legal action against Apple Corp., only 2 days from the expected launch of the iPhone 5. HTC alleges that Apple is violating two of their patents regarding the usage of LTE technology. Since the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini are expected to include said technology, if HTC wins this court case, they could ban the iPhone 5 from ever being sold in the US, the largest smartphone market in the world. The interesting thing is that HTC bought these patents from ADC Telecommunications Inc. for $75 million, possibly to sue Apple.
