Looks like it's VIA's turn to take a stab at the big Apple with Bloomberg reporting VIA's manoeuvre to have filed a patent lawsuit against them over the processors used in Apple's mobile devices.
More specifically, the patent lawsuit targets Apple's custom ARM-based A4 and A5 processors used in recent iOS devices. Namely, these are the iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPod touch 4th generation and Apple TV 2nd generation.
Somehow I don't see the outcome being that Apple will be forced to have all iOS devices in the U.S. pulled. I'm sure many competitors are desperate enough that they would have found a way to make that happen long by now if a clear and strong enough basis for it existed.
In any case, this should prove to be an interesting outcome nonetheless.
