HTC finally caught a break! One of Nokia’s patent lawsuits against HTC in Germany has been dismissed. Wondering what the lawsuit was about? Apparently Nokia owns a patent on receiving phone calls on a device while it’s updating. We’ll argue about how silly that patent is later.

HTC was clearly thrilled about the news, and they believe that it may eventually lead to Nokia’s patent being invalidated. Nokia, on the other hand, may try to appeal the case, but I can’t imagine they’d have much more luck a second time around.

We finally have some good patent lawsuit news. Hopefully we’ll see more of that in 2014.
