And if you're feeling smug because you didn't see the iPhone 4S in there, that's only because the lawsuit was filed back in April, but it's a pretty safe bet that the 4S includes the offending technology, too. Needless to say, this is potentially a major blow to Apple."
Seems to be in Germany only, but the article says it's "paving the way" for a Europe-wide ban. More technical article at http://fosspatents.blogspot.com/2011...an-patent.html
; the infringement relates to a patent for a "method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system".
