Man facing prosecution for image of new HTC phone

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A local man has been arrested and referred for possible prosecution for leaking an image of HTC Corp.'s new flagship smartphone — the HTC One M8 — a month before its March 25 debut, police said Friday.

Police launched an investigation into the case in February after receiving a report from HTC, which discovered photos of the new phone on the Mobile01 website.

Police later traced the origin of the photos to a 35-year-old New Taipei resident who allegedly posted the pictures on the site without the company's authorization.

A computer and mobile phone containing the photos were seized from the suspect's home during an April 15 raid, the police said.
