Patent threat to OpenMoko devices?

Hi everyone,

Typhoon Touch Technologies has initiated legal measures against
different companies with reasonings including - but not limited to -
producing touch screen driven smartphones, as far as I understand it.
Those devices are claimed to infringe two patents.

I did not check the whole patent descriptions, but on the first sight it
seems to me that OpenMoko Neo1973 and Freerunner may be affected by
those, too?
