Last year, Apple’s chief designer Jonathan Ive sharply spoke negatively about copying ideas. According to Quince, it is not about copying, but about the theft of intellectual property. He failed to hold back at the mention of the name of the Chinese Xiaomi, which is often accused of borrowing Apple product developments. Words a top-the Manager of Apple was made after the issue of the similarity of the Xiaomi Mi Pad with the iPad tablet.
This week the Vice President of Xiaomi Hugo Barra in an interview with Bloomberg responded to criticism of Apple. “You must be zakruchennye corners. You need to have in some form the Home button, – said a top Manager. I just don’t think we can allow the company [Apple] to become the absolute owner of existing things”.
Barra believes that all allegations up against the company associated with the existing in a society prejudiced against the manufacturers from China. In fact, every smartphone these days is like another smartphone”. “People just can’t believe that Chinese companies can really be global innovators can create high-class and high-quality products,” added Barra.
“In fact, I’ll be the first to admit that Mi4 similar to the iPhone 5. said Barra. And incidentally, these beveled faces are present in many other devices.”
The statement Barr about Mi4 was quite unexpected considering the fact that previously a top Manager was going to give Jonathan Quince this smartphone, so that he was able to assess what makes his company and make sure that you make mistakes at the expense of borrowing.
