Another company has also sued Apple, this time for allegedly infringing a patent described as ‘Wireless Mobile Phone Including a Headset’.

The US$3 million patent-infringement lawsuit was filed by Intelligent Smart Phones Concepts.

The patent describes an interface that allows a removable headset “to receive at least telephony audio signals from the phone, and to provide audio signals to the phone.”

ISPC is asking for US$3 million to compensate for lost revenue and royalties. The company also wants an injunction preventing Apple from further infringement of the patent.

Cnet¬†suggests¬†that the company that filed the lawsuit is a ‘patent troll’.
