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