HTC faces injunction in U.K. against One Mini, possibly against One as well

As if things couldn't get worse for HTC (HTCKF), a judge in the United Kingdom has handed down an injunction against the HTC One Mini in a patent lawsuit brought against HTC by Nokia.

The ban will go into effect Dec. 6. HTC faces the risk that the HTC One will also be blocked from sales; the judge in the case has given the manufacturer a chance to appeal given the "considerable" damage an injunction on the flagship model would cause. Until the second hearing comes to a conclusion, HTC will have to suspend imports.

HTC's case is predicated on the argument that the infringing hardware component is too small to justify an outright injunction of the entire product.
