BAN: Nokia enforces UK Sales-Blockade of the HTC One mini [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:32 CET under 04 - Android News

If you are an avid follower, you know that I the HTC One mini is the Android smartphone from HTC's One-family, I like most. However, if you live in the UK, I have bad news for you. As Bloomberg just reported, a London judge said that HTC couldn't sell its One mini in the UK anymore - starting 6 December. The ruling is a result of Nokia which sued HTC for infringing patents owned by Nokia. However, since also blocking UK sales of the HTC One would cause "considerable" damage to HTC, Judge Richard Arnold delayed an injunction against the the One, so HTC could appeal; even if the phone contained microchips that also breached Nokia's patent. Prior the ruling, HTC argued the microchips found to infringe Nokia patents were "a very small component" and wouldn't justify a sales ban.

Wonder where Microsoft's future is going to? No, not the future of the company by itself or who the next CEO will possibly be but the future of Windows? Always well informed Microsoft insider Mary Jo Foley got some information Microsoft denied to comment - for sure. Nevertheless, the info Foley received are somehow obvious and are about Microsoft's plans to "unify" the Windows (for desktop and tablet), Windows Phone and even the Xbox One code-base as much as possible.
