I'm pretty sure HTC didn't copy the 820 because they were unveiled within a couple weeks of each other. I think that maybe HTC was inspired by both the WP UI and maybe the Lumia 800/900 to get their 8X design. I think the colors and blocky shape are generally characteristic of WP so they were probably more trying to "copy" that. Also, they probably didn't want to rehash an Android design (like the One X) and make something more signature to WP. I do agree that they look similar, but straight up copying is going a little far. To me, the 8X still looks like an HTC design. They had phones with sharp corners before Nokia did in the WP game, back with the Diamond, etc.

Even Apple is rolling their eyes at you Nokia. You don't have the clout nor the popularity to claim your design as trade dress. Nor is the front of your phone all that unique. The back and sides of the 8X are completely different. You also CANNOT patent COLORS.

You know fanboys are a certain breed of defective humans that really should have never been born. In the Nokia fanboy case, first they attack Apple for suing Samsung over phone design. Now their baby is the one suing and they are cheering Nokia on! Principles? What principles? As long as Nokia wins, its all good!

That's halarious, Nokia (the new Apple) sueing HTC (the new Samsung).

Never thought that Nokia would "idolize" Apple by picking the,"Apple Sueing the Other Companies" Card

LOL ;()
