How HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE, Avoid Infringement On Apple Patents http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
The U.S. versions of HTC’s phones, The HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE, and any newer Android phones no longer will provide users with “data tapping” functionality, which provides a list of possible actions when tapped on a link, such as a phone number or an emails address. Now when a user tap on those links, HTC phones will immediately takes you to a predetermined action. Tap on a phone number, the dialer will be activated. Tap on an email address, email app will be activated. An options menu will allow users choose the default action to take when they tap on afore mentiond data.
I think I will like that more than having to go through a menu everytime I tap on a phone number, Usually, it is to call or save the number to my contacts. Like wise when I tap on an email address I most likely want to send an email.
So it looks like the HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE, are held at U.S. Customs, if these corrections by pass the infringement on Apple patents. I hope they do, as we believe, patents suck, when they are used to control Markets.
