Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) sent out an e-mail over to TechCrunch saying the following message: ?We are not a party to this lawsuit. However, we stand behind our Android operating system and the partners who have helped us to develop it.” As many of you are aware, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) decided to sue HTC yesterday over 20 iPhone-related patents. Google works closely with HTC to develop mobile handsets powered by the Android operating system. Google uses multi-touch technology for their operating system on the Nexus One, developed by HTC. Multi-touch technology (pinch-to-zoom) is a patent that is owned by Apple. [TechCrunch]
