HTC is having enough troubles at the moment, but it looks like the knife is slowly being twisted by another struggling phone manufacturer: Nokia. On Monday afternoon, the US International Trade Commission found that several HTC smartphones infringed on two Nokia-owned patents.

In regards to a third patent, HTC were found innocent, thankfully. But an injunction preventing the Taiwanese manufacturer from importing several of its smartphones could be issued. This wouldn't affect HTC's latest smartphones, but we could see the HTC Amaze 4G, Inspire 4G, Flyer, Jetstream, Radar 4G, Rezound and Sensation 4G soon banned from sale on US soil.

 

Nokia issued a statement, where it said: "Nokia is pleased that the initial determination of the ITC confirmed that HTC has infringed two of our patents."
