HTC pulls phones from UK over patent row

HTC has stopped their smartphones being sold in the UK amid a patent row.

The Taiwanese firm is locked in a dispute over "intellectual property" with the research and development company Ipcom.

It's believe HTC offered to sell their devices in the country but only with a workaround, and the Munich firm has said that the workaround was not put in place.

As a result, HTC devices now appear as "out of stock" for people in the UK.

A spokeswoman for HTC said: "As a leading innovator, HTC takes intellectual property issues very seriously.

"We are proactively investigating an infringement claim by a third party with respect to a single handset model."

The only place to buy HTC now is via Amazon and their own website.
