Just a few months after Apple took on mobile phone goliath Nokia, the Cupertino-based iPhone innovator is filing suit against up-and-coming mobile phone maker HTC, alleging that the company is infringing on 20 iPhone-related patents.

The lawsuit, filed with the International Trade Commission in the Delaware district court, claims that the supposed infringements are “related to the iPhone’s user interface, underlying architecture, and hardware.”

In a press release posted to Apple’s website this morning, Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs was quoted as saying, “We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it. We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.”

Back in December, Apple decided to countersue Nokia for allegedly infringing on 13 patents, upping the ante after Nokia claimed that Apple was infringing on 10 of its own patents.

Any guesses on who’s next on Apple’s hit list?
