Taiwan chip maker sues Apple over iPhone, iPod touch

The company asks a U.S. court to halt sales of infringing products

Taiwan chip designer Elan Microelectronics said Wednesday it is suing Apple over the infringement of two U.S. patents.

The company is asking a U.S. court to prohibit Apple from producing, using and selling iPhones, iPod touches and MacBooks, over the patent violation.

The company filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Elan said in a statement to the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

Apple could not immediately be reached for comment.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
