Apple Sued over iPhone's Visual Voicemail

Apple iPhone Visual VoicemailIn the iPhone's slim case are a number of simple yet important improvements to the standard cell phone interface culminating in what some consider to be the most usable phone on the market. One such improvement, called "Visual Voicemail", turns voice mail messages into audio files that can be listened to in any order. They're also displayed based on the sender so you know, ahead of time, who the message is from. One company, Klausner Technologies, is alleging that it had visual voicemail first.

Klauser says it has not one but two patents that cover iPhone's visual voicemail. The company has already received settlements from AOL and Vonage in similar lawsuits over the same two patents. Will Apple cave and shell out some cash, or is Klauser due for a drawn out battle in Texas Eastern District Court with Apple's wily suits?
