HTC is not new to the business, Apple is new to the business. HTC has been around since before the iMac.

HTC was founded in 1997, and was strictly an ODM for the first few years. They're extremely new in comparison to a company like Motorola.

Not all of the complaints are cellphone specific. Some of the patents in the filings are from the NeXT days, long before HTC was around.
