Yesterday we reported that despite HTC’s recently announced Windows Phone 8X and 8S handsets looking remarkably like Nokia’s Lumia series of smartphones, the Finnish company had released a rather diplomatic statement saying that HTC’s efforts was “good news” for the Windows Phone ecosystem. We admitted it was rather gracious of them and if you were wondering when the other shoe was going to drop, here it is. According to reports, it seems that Nokia is looking to sue HTC over their new Windows Phone 8 handsets, particularly that of the 8X which we can’t help but agree upon first glance could be mistaken for Nokia’s Lumia 820.

The report has stated that Nokia is currently preparing their case against HTC and they are looking at the possibility of getting the HTC 8X banned in certain regions. It should be noted that there has not been any official statement from either company yet and Nokia’s recently released statement had us thinking otherwise, so we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now but do check back with us at a later date where hopefully more (official) information will be available. In the meantime what do you guys think? Do you think Nokia has a strong case here?
