Apple is getting sued for infringing on some vague patent. We’re not sure how much they’re asking for in damages but here are the details about patent 7, 441, 196:
an invention that displays “on-line content reformatted from a webpage in a hypertext markup language (HTML) format into an extensible markup language (XML) format to generate a sister site.” This sister site is a simplified version of the original site that is then displayed on any number of devices–including cell phones.
This lawsuit is unlikely to result in any damages awarded because the iPhone isn’t attempting to replicate a “simplified version” but rather an exact duplicate. If Apple is in fact sued, I can think of many other phones that would surely be sued as well.
