HTC designers arrested for alleged expense fraud and stealing trade secrets


HTC's exiting designers interrogated for expense fraud and stealing trade secrets  Reports say HTC chairwoman Cher Wang personally filed a complaint to Taiwan's Investigation Bureau, which has since learned that Chien, Wu and Huang planned to set up a new design company (which is already registered under the Chinese name "Xiaoyu") aimed at the mainland Chinese market, and that they would resign after claiming their mid-year bonuses yesterday. The real beef HTC has here is that it apparently caught Chien secretly downloading files related to the upcoming Sense 6.0 UI design, and then shared them with external contacts via e-mail. The Investigation Bureau refused to comment on whether Sense 6.0 is related to the One Max due later this year.. Their offices were also raided yesterday as part of the investigation.

HTC has not officially revealed any details and when contacted by Engadget gave the following statement.
“The matter is under investigation by relevant authorities. We therefore refrain from further comments.”
