Apple is no stranger to being copied. HTC is the latest to take what works at Silicon Valley and make it their own.
The latest version of the HTC phone, known as the "Aero," looks exactly like the iPhone 6, and consumers and critics alike are noticing the ripoff.
The cell phone marketplace, and it certainly is no secret, belongs to the iPhone and Androids, but HTC, although they make a decent to good phone, isn't in that category with the others. In fact, they're not close and a lot of that comes from a lack of marketing dollars that would be considered comparable.
Apple undoubtedly is flattered by the move, since the company hasn't exactly been the progressive leader and champion of originality. Lately, the Android, specifically the Samsung Galaxy line of phones, have seemingly been one step ahead of Apple and every other cell phone company.
And that has resulted in Apple losing a little bit of its luster in comparison to what Samsung has been able to do recently, what with everything from initially trotting out larger screens to having a curved screen or virtually everything else in the cell phone market that would be considered new.
