Lawsuits Might Be To Much For Google Android to Overcome.

Last week the International Trade Commission made a premilinary ruling against HTC for infringing on 2 of Apple’s reported 10 patents. If this ruling sticks this could be the start of something ugly for Android phones in general. Apple has also filed a law suit against Samsung.

Phones that would be affected if ruling is carried out are: HTC; Droid Incredible, Wildfire, EVO 4G, and Desire phones; Samsung;Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, and Droid Charge phones, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Conversely Samsung is counter suing Apple in 17 different countries, which would affect Iphone and Ipad importation. Apple isn’t the only company trying to get a slice out of the Android pie. Other companies such as Oracle and Microsoft are saying some of their intellectual property was used for the the Android OS. If all the lawsuits have a similar conclusion this may be to much for the Android OS to withstand.

Needless to say it’s going to be interesting to see how everything plays out. If you were in the Market for an Android phone, it looks like there’s no better time then the present because it might be your only time.
