    LOL! When I first saw that I thought that it resembled my iMac too!

    Seriously unappealing to me. I think HTC should have stuck to the designer who created their "One" series phones!

    MS did the split screen email in the 90's
    laptops have had the camera in the middle for years
    i doubt HTC has anything to worry about

    (for the lazy people)

    You guys don't get it.
    Apple spends tens of millions (if not hundreds of millions) of dollars on industrial design and focus groups.

    Why would they do it?
    So they don't have to spend the money.
    Simple as that.

    From what I've read, there is no proof this is actually from HTC yet.

    Is this confirmed as coming from HTC?

    It sure doesn't look like an iPad though, does it? ;)

    looks to be from HTC actually...

    Personally without that lower 'handle' it looks like HTCs one x. but with that handle bezel thing, looks spot on like a minified imac! :D

    that handle is a good idea btw....genuine at least

    Cue millions of lost sales (and a billion dollar settlement) from people buying HTC tablets mistaking them as the new iMac :p

    Not even close to being accurate. Apple spends very little on R&D and focus groups compared to other companies. Not saying it doesn't resemble a little iMac though.

    This has gotta be fake. That wallpaper is the same one that's used on the iPad.

    At least some of you aren't that gullible. Looks photo-shopped to me and not at all believable.

    Wake me up when HTC actually confirms this.

    You are comparing them to a company like Google who gives their employees 20% "free time" to work on whatever they want regardless of the fact that 99.9% of those projects will account for nothing.

    When you look at R&D spending in terms of actual products developed, Apple is generally spot on in releasing most of what they plan to develop/focus on.

    I feel that monstrosity has to be fake. It looks absolutely terrible. The iMac looked good in it day and is due for an update anyway. Regardless I won't believe that until its marketed...
