An American trade body is to investigate Apple after HTC called for a ban on US sales of iPhones, iPads and iPods, saying the rival handset maker infringed its patents.

The International Trade Commission said in a brief notice that it would take up the investigation, which has to do with "certain portable devices and related software."

HTC had said in its complaint filed with the ITC in May that Apple infringed five of its patents related to mobile phone directory hardware and software and power-management technology in portable devices.

Too true.  It's almost like Ford suing BMW for using a steering wheel.
