HTC defends One A9 design, will roll out to M, Desire lines

Sadly, all its strengths, and even its weaknesses, will be drowned out by its one glaring feature, or misfeature, depending on who you ask.

Of course, HTC is denying that accusation by doing perhaps what it should not: calling Apple the actual copycat instead.

The TV is the result of a collaboration with French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and is said to have originated from the capital letter "I" in a serif font.
