In the longer term it will depend upon the terms of contracts between
two software suppliers and HTC.
I don't think it does. Even if Google and HTC have contracts in place to
pass on some or all of any costs that arise out of patent liabilities, HTC
will still be the subject of those actions. E.g. imagine if Apple get an
injunction to prevent HTC importing phones into the US, there's no way a
contract with a 3rd party gets around that (other than to offset the
tangible costs of it perhaps).
