i don't get it: "The Finns accuse HTC of copying the Lumia 820 front panel design for its Windows Phone 8X".
Well..I can see that HTC has different design: different audio grille, different dimensions, different front camera positioning, larger bezel/frame .
What in earth they copied? the rectangular shape with sharper coners? It looks a lot with HTC EVO series...
i think it's a good policy to have different shapes: One series (for example) for android and this for WP.
And as it was stated in article: it's not like HTC could change the design and the entire production line in those several days between the launch of lumia series and HTC 8X..
Anyway, it's their bussiness and we'll see what it will happen.
But i think that Microsoft has a great involvment here, regarding the "general aspect" of the WP phones -like a trademak aspect- and has encouraged similar aspect.
is nokia out of their mind?? steve ballmer z supporting the company which is already burried inside the ground n apart from holding his hands, they r biting his leg!!! both r WP devices n if nokia will ban htc's device then it will affect sales of WPs n end up in declining sales of WPs which r already at bottomline of all OS's... haha WP fans say WP is future OS n by banning their own OS they will top OS market... keep it up nokia finally u proved u look for urself but not after microsoft who is feeding u... but one thing i didnt understand that how htc made a similar design n put that phone in demonstration within two weeks time... question urself nokia did u believe that apple is ur dad??
You are absolutely right.
HTC did copy your childish and girlish design!
I wouldn't buy neither of these phones.
But even if design wasn't girlish,
who cares about copying design?
It's what inside the phone that should matter the most! Grow up Nokia and start producing very fuctional phones that you used to be known for in the past!
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Nokia wasn't the one that invented wireless charging! but she was the one that put this tech in their phones and will start to sell it.
Lol... I dont think htc copied nokia... its just happened that the design co incide with each other... htc announced its win 8 device only a couple of days after nokias did. How come they copied in such short time... plz nokia dnt be a donkey like apple....
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Apple will sue nokia now as apple patented sueing everyone.U r correct.
of course that HTC will be issued by Nokia, they made a clone of the phone
OMG stop all these non-sense. Nokia investigate your own problem with faking picture and video
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Apple will sue nokia now as apple patented sueing everyone.BREAKING NEWS! iPhone 6 will be nicknamed "iSUE". Nokia's next flagship will be nicknamed "nSUE". Galaxy S IV will be named "samSUE".
Nokia 920 is innovative with wireless charging, PureMotion HD+ display, pure view image capturing, location platform maps, Nokia city lens. The copy cat HTC have nothing innovative.
if i am not mistaken, htc mozart has the same front view.. long time ago.. i think nokia doesnt need to sue anyone for this
Nokia what happened to you now ? I always asked myself that android copied from nokia symbian ! But nokia you never do anything to android why ! why you not sue android !
[deleted post]Vict, dont tell me u r now using htc or Samsung to comment here :D

I Don't think that Nokia will pursuit any legal action against HTC considering the way nokia has been co-operative in requesting companies to obtain licenses for patents others have violated. Legal actions are something that Apple and Samsung is known for. Had the mentioned companies violated the design then they would have deserved a legal action against the same
Nokia following the footsteps of Apple. And yes this wont be a court "battle it out" as Windows to would suffer the consequences with Nokia,if victorious, financially gaining.
After reading that about not being able to copy a smartphone in two weeks i had to laugh lolololol. they have based it on earlier lumias with more up to date specs, zzzzzzzzzzz dont be so daft. Personaly i wouldnt waste my time are the tax payers on court expenses like that little bad apple does. lumia will do better as its better specs and tech, end of , case closed .
Htc put that block of wood in that hole on your way out.
