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?

So no one could make an electronic device that's white with space on the bottom without being seen as copying Apple? Apple didn't invent these colors, they just used them.

How do some people not see any resemblance to it? It's obvious that there is a significant similarity between the two. I'm not even trying to say they blatently copied the iMac at all, just that there are a number of strong similarities: narrow bezel except for the extended lower panel that is completely clean except for a black object in the center of it, black bezel/trim around the screen, etc.
Bats and birds look similar enough for people to mistake them, doesn't mean one copied the other.

Let's get some things straight here.
The rectangle shape of the screen is selected by the resolution which is determined by the apps available on the Android. For an example you can not make a square screen to use program that is made for a landscape display, but you can run landscape on square shape app. So this tablet will have the same basic shape to just about all other tablets out there.
Having thin bezel is what everyone is doing, you do that to computer monitors you do that to TV. Why put a thick bezel when you do not have to? Just to waste some money? I see htc did make 1 side thicker just to differentiate itself from iPad, then went further to make the thick bezel functional. They made it sturdy enough for the stand so the tablet can stand upright. Most likely made it forward facing speakers to better utilize the space, unlike iPad's useless speakers facing anyone but the one who is using the damn device.
I do see it have some similarities but there is enough difference there to not be mistaken for an iMac. The old 2006 white iMac have cheap plastic white bezel and cover, it also have quite a bit of sharp corners. And that 2006 iMac shape is similar to quite a few LCD TV at that time, I remember an old Sony TV have this same basic shape you guys will have to search for it if you want to check.

There is more things to differentiate the two products when I look further.
17" standard monitor iMac vs what looks like 10" Landscape htc tablet
thick cheap white plastic iMac vs nice thin plastic htc tablet
attached stand iMac vs removable holder tablet
Big Apple logo on bottom vs htc logo on top
iMac looks like camera up top vs camera on bottom htc + looks like it may have a camera in back
Desktop computer vs tablet
If you guys think Apple have a case here, I hope Apple do file lawsuit.
I am sure htc will fight back and win, maybe even help their case to challenge the previous judgement.
