  • 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.

      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 have a white iMac from 2008. This tablet looks just like it. You have to be a moron to deny it.

      You are right about the whole shape thing. Obviously..yes..If you want to create a tablet that functions like an iPad, and something people are used too seeing/holding, it would have to be the same shape as a iPad.

      All of this fighting is getting old...I remember the good ol days of fighting over what the next iPhone will be called (iPhone 5......) Now it's the rational people (also known as Apple fanboys) vs the people who cannot accept the simple fact that Apple created something the entire world wanted (also know as delusional, blind, immature droid bots) .

      Instead, they pretend as if Apple did not change EVERYTHING with their products....and choose to call it all some sort of coincidence or conspiracy theory that Apple has been copied and mimicked every step of the way.

      If Samsung, HTC, etc, could just ADMIT they were massively influenced by Apple and their designs (and you as droid bots could accept this fact as well), we all would be in a better, more educated, and just flat out happier world/forum!

      In 2007 (which is the model of iMac i have) the iMac had a bezel. Also from those pictures it's hard to tell which one is white and which one is aluminum.

      I see a bezel.. it just happens to be black.

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

      ::scratch head::
      I don't think you have the right to call someone retarded when you yourself can't even spell, "you're."
      You're: you are. As in, "you're retarded"
      Your: belonging to you. this is your retarded friend

      Are you guys kidding me? HTC has been using this look: White, black bezel, screen. Just look at the One X

      Ignoring the discussion of whether or not it looks like an iMac, I'm wondering what the purpose of the white space under the screen is for. Sure, it holds the camera. But if that entire white space is just there to hold the camera and has no other functionality (maybe some touch-sensitive buttons on it or something) then it just seems like an inefficient design to me.

      The only other reason I can think of to have that white space is to avoid being taken to trial by Apple for a design that is somewhat similar to the iPad.

      Also, to those of you saying that you will buy it based of looks along....seriously? The most important factor for whether or not I buy a product is how it functions. Looks SHOULD be (in my opinion, of course) one of the least important factors.

      Apple's starting to p1ss me off with their lawsuits. I know this isn't one yet, but if there is... my God.

      If it were 1942, the headlines would say, "APPLE SUES FORD - CLAIMS THEY INVENTED WHEEL"

      He meant the older while iMac, especially in the second picture (sitting on a stand).

      You guys are TOO young to the Mac world, you don't even know the existence of the white iMac, which existed for much much longer than the current iMac.

      You guys are getting ridiculous with your copy claims.

      Let me get this right. You're upset because everything looks like an iPad. When someone tries to NOT make it look like an iPad... you still get upset?
