It’s getting ugly in here…

Surprise, surprise. Well not actually. I told you I wasn’t holding my breath that it was going to happen on the 7th. The update for the Hero I mean. So now “they” are saying that it will happen on or before the 21st of this month. At this point I really can’t even get excited about it. This is a classic boy-who-cried-wolf senario. You know what happened at the end of that story right?

In other news, HTC has fired a salvo of their own across Apples bow. The scary thing is that their suit may actually have some teeth. They are counter suing Apple for 20+ patent infringements, based on the fact that they developed the first WinCE(?) device. HTC is asking that all imports and sales of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad be halted in the US. Can you imagine? You think Jobs is crazy now [ok it’s just me. Right.], just think what he’ll do if that goes through!

I’m all for competition as it’s what drives innovation. What I don’t want to see, is this turn into a vicious, drawn out mud slinging brawl that leaves one or both of the companies crippled. We need both HTC and Apple to move their ground breaking designs forward. That’s only going to happen with competition. Healthy, open competition. Are you listening Steve?

Ciao!
