You'd think they would sue one plus instead, that design is complete iphone 7 plus copy.
Apple shamelessly STOLE the name "iPhone" from Linksys
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Translation...Ridiculous excuses.
The only ones that need to realize anything here are people... moreiPad, MiPad.
The court, with more experience and knowledge about trademark law than you will ever have, ruled that they look too similar and could be pronounced too similar. It's not the first time Xiaomi has shamelessly copied Apple to profit from Apples brand.
Be Nice To Others, 06 Dec 2017That the supreme king is dead? Never bro, never.
With all-new design Xperias next year, they'... moreThey are not the supreme king. They are also not dead.
And I hope they dont go bezeless completely or only certain models while others maintain minimal but needed bezels.
They will probably be one of my only brands of choice come 2019 or 2020. Unless because of the aptex that they eventually remove the headset jack as well.
They need to wake up and stop ruining themselves.
They could be rivaling Samsung head on for major tech and top spots in mobiles but they make many foolish decision. Whether out of the foolish idea that cutting certain corners saves money in the long run when in reality it only helps in the short term and consistently gets worse in the long run. Or just simply thinking they dont need something like standard features or global release.

The only ones that need to realize anything here are people like you. And that is that there is nothing remotely similar to ipad in that and that apple is over stepping their boundaries.
But money talks more than logic or right from wrong.
Had you at least said that you would have at least had a point.
[deleted post]Agreed, this has affirmed my believe that Apple is a rotten company. Folks, don't my any i devices!
If you don't uphold your trademarks legally, you lose them. That's one thing everyone here needs to realize. This isn't being "petty", it's a major legal requirement if Apple want to protect their trademark, and prevent it from becoming a generic term.
Tablet or Tab is the word for these devices, not Pad. Mi Pad is a quite obvious attempt to profit off of the iPad trademark. They could just call it Mi Tab, and it'd be fine. Or make up a brand name of their own, like Mi Slab or Mi Leaf.
What?, 06 Dec 2017Sony is dead. What are you talking about?not dead. but dying (still alive but never wakeup). and will be like this forever.
I've just ordered some new leather pads for my AKG hifi headphones.When they arrive,am I legally allowed to call them My pads,or even Mi pads????ffs...lol
I'm absolutely with Xiao-Mi on this one,just hope that somebody or something will soon stop that iEvil company..
What?, 06 Dec 2017Sony is dead. What are you talking about?That the supreme king is dead? Never bro, never.
With all-new design Xperias next year, they're not gonna die soon. Unless it is just your delusional mind that is always against Sony and you wish for their death (which will never happen btw).
anonymous, 06 Dec 2017If apple are so het up about the word PAD... then all sanitary pad manufactures should sue ap... moreThey're not electronics and are not even closely similar in comparison to both Mi Pad and iPad. What? You think those pad companies won't sue if there's something to charge for? Believe me they will. They're just not as statutely ignorant as you are.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017Xiaomi and all Chinese brands just copy iPhone and Samsung. Samsung and apple copy Sony. Sony is dead. What are you talking about?
