HTC didn't copy the Lumia 820 & 920 with the 8x, but the Lumia 800 (and the N9 before that). So it's more than 2 weeks......
this is really ridiculous! i thought apple was bad enough to sue almost every competitor product.
i can't believe under elpo leadership, nokia become stupid enough to follow apple suit
I do love both Nokia and HTC but I am a HTC lover all the way. I prefer the way it looks on the outside and the inside.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Apple will sue nokia now as apple patented sueing everyone.The truth
Ooookkk? Nokia, are you seeking to be the only Windows Phone seller because that front panel is MICROSOFT'S issue not HTC's. Hey if they do ban it, this may backfire and create less WP sales so it's like they're shooting themselves in the foot but if they want to destroy a new OS then ok.
I'll be with Jolla on the MeeGo Plane.
These Apple ban-your-phone lawsuits are becoming ridiculous.
Pls that's definitely not true, its just a rumor...and stop making false comments using this as an opportunity to say something bad about Nokia... Phones have been having many colors but nobody noticed it trill Nokia made thier flag ship in colors but still the will no ban HTC cos of that..
I can't really see how HTC copied the front panel design from Nokia. It is a rectangular panel, with the standard MS touch-sensitive buttons and a colored margin. The shape is not the same, the size is not the same, even the corner radius is different. And HTC has more color added in the speaker grill. So, it is as different as a phone can get. If so, we can tell that any rectangular glass covered front panel is stolen from Nokia?
boosook, 25 Sep 2012Nokia, you are RIDICULOUS, just like Apple you think you can patent such a trivial design... ... moreThe WP 8X is much more alike the Acro S than the Lumia 820. Even the WP 8S looks like the Xperia U. But Sony doesnt sue anyone and thats the best thing about them. They're not afraid of competition. They are not monopolizing the market. I hope patent issues will be solved in smartphones. Just let the innovations grow.
MCRL, 25 Sep 2012Ey Nokia, you were once known as the No. 1 mobile phone maker before. You can do better th... moreYeah right! I don't think so, because at the time people don't have many choices. Take a look at Nokia preview phone...it's a mess!
[deleted post]Have you done that before? We're knows iPhone longer and it should be go deeper as your desired
Nokia and Samsung both are temporary for windows phone. But HTC is Permanent life time for Windows phone
A phone is maybe just over a year in the design phase at which time drawings, sketches and wax models are shared with operators, third parties, and in this case probably microsoft well before the launch event. Its not like HTC would have started design on this after the Lumia launch, more like that things have been shared along the journey..
Ey Nokia, you were once known as the No. 1 mobile phone maker before.
You can do better than that.
Nokia, you are RIDICULOUS, just like Apple you think you can patent such a trivial design...
This is the Sony Acro S:
Well, it was released BEFORE the Nokia 820, so what should do Sony? Sue Nokia in turn because they copied the 820 from the Acro S?
The truth is that the 820 design (just like the Acro S and LG 8X) is nothing special, so there's nothing to patent.
