Rumor: Nokia plans to sue HTC for copying Lumia Design!
When HTC unveiled its 8X and 8S windows phone 8 phones with their bright colors, polycarboante unibody, curved screen (even the placement of the external speakers were ripped off from the Lumia610). Reading that last sentence, you probably thought I was talking about a Lumia phone huh?
The first thing that popped into everyone's head was that's a rip off of the Lumia phones.
So you can imagine how mad I was when I saw this video, Here HTC "design team" are talking B$ on how iconic the design of the HTC 8X and 8S are and how it is inspired by windows phone tiles, oh come on, give me a break, they didn't ewven have to look straight at the camera for us to know they were lying.. iconic my @$$
Well, the news today according to PC-Tablet is that Nokia's planning suit against HTC for copying the Lumia design patents. And they should, these phones shouldn't even be allowed into the market come November.
If this rumor turns out to be false, I still think Nokia owns it to the Nokia design team behind the beautiful N9/Lumia800 to sue HTC, sue them hard. It's sickening and down right annoying to see someone else rip the fruits of their labor.
Take action Nokia, these copycat phones should not be allowed to see the light of day, don't be like Apple and wait for the HTC 8X/8S to become a viable competitor in the WP8 ecosystem before you take action.
