  • Leaked Photos of HTC Tablet Look Like a Miniature iMac


    Photos of HTCs tablet have leaked, and the design is likely raising a few eyebrows on the Cupertino campus.

    The photos posted on Twitter via evleaks show a device with what appears to be a 10.1-inch display, a confusingly placed camera on the bottom front of the device, and a design that looks like a miniature iMac. The device literally looks like Rick Moranis shrunk down his iMac in another freak lab accident.

    In what might be an ironic twist, HTCís tablet will be the first non-Apple tablet to move markedly away from the iPads design. Even if it is achieved by copying another Apple product. HTC hasnít been a prominent player in the tablet market with only two prior offerings Iím sure no one has ever seen.

    If HTCís latest offering catches on it could prove encouraging for other tablet makers struggling to bring non-patent violating designs to market. Or, if it fails then everyone just goes back to the drawing board.

      Isn't it a bit of a stretch saying it looks like an iMac? For starters it's white and the iMac is brushed aluminium. Then there is the bezel all the way around which the iMac doesn't have. The big Apple logo is missing too o.O

      Maybe if you are Mr Magoo you could say it kinda likes like the love child of the current iMac and an old iMac G5.

      I believe the iMac has a bezel. Also I thought it was brushed aluminum but I zoomed in and it's definitely white which totally makes it look less like an iMac. But I just need to say it not having an apple logo seriously that's the point you are trying to use to say it doesn't look like it... Something doesn't need to have an apple logo to copy apple.. Like its hard to put into the words how dumb I think you are for saying "it's missing the apple logo" (not exact words but that's what you basically said) I agree it's not a copy but still.,

      I could ask you the same question. I see no resemblance to the current iMac. Wrong color. No bezel on current iMac. Your photo shows that clearly. If you see a resemblance then good for you.

      Your retarded. Honestly. Why are you even on these forums. He was simply making the point they look very similar. And they do. Subtract the ugly bottom on the htc tablet. And you have an iMac screen that's white w/ a full bezel.

      So a red mustang and a green mustang gt must not look similar either right?

      so because they didnt put an apple on the bottom (there not apple so why would they do that) and they added a small bezel around the black it looks nothing like an imac screen? dude you are seriously delusional! again and i will repeat no where did i say or did anyone say they look exact. but literally at glance they look the same.

      Your argument still is because its white? who freggin cares if it was red. i can paint anything any color, just cause the color changes doesnt make the design change..

      and just because you seem to lack any type of imagination in seeing past the white versus brushed here you go.

      Some one had to come out with it sooner or later, we aren't gonna wait for apple to come out with everything in one year, that said apple is kinda falling behind the sales might say different but looks like apple is falling behind.... To me.

      Love how you single me out even though 3 of the first 4 comments, including mine, all said or implied it didn't look like an iMac. Whatever. If you want to think that everything looks like some Apple product then that's your right. Just like its mine to say it doesn't. Only difference is I'm not slagging off at people for having an opinion. Yet you guys feel the need to attack anyone who has a different opinion to yours. Nice social skills. Slow clap.....

      Yea but since it's a shape and apparently apple made all of the shapes because they are the almighty no one can use anything that resembles anything because they are stealing from apple and "everyone knows they don't steal from no one, they make everything up themselves, everyone else just steals from them"!

      How about it DOESN"T look like one... It looks like a black and white tablet that inevitably has to be rectangular! My lord these articles are like a bi*chy child wrote them, Apple fanboys.

      Rectangles need, I'm afraid, to be rectangular, and for this reason all similarly sized devices are going to appear similar if they're the same colour scheme(isn).
