HTC One Mini gets banned in the UK as Nokia wins patent fight

HTC is truly feeling the burn of the patent war right now, as a judge has ruled that the HTC One Mini infringes some Nokia-owned patents and has banned the device from being sold in the UK.

HTC will not be allowed to sell the Mini any more starting from December 6.

Perhaps even worse, the HTC One flagship is also at risk of seeing a ban, though the judge acknowledged that this would cause "considerable" damage and has given HTC time to appeal.

HTC has agreed to cease imports of its devices to the UK until the next hearing.

Bye bye baby

Nokia had already won an injunction that meant HTC had to alter its microphone inside the One, but this is a significant step further.

We’ve contacted HTC and have been told that it will have more information to share with us in the coming hours, so stay tuned. We’ll update as soon as we hear more.

Get a last good look at all this HTC One Mini you can’t have, Brits
