    Default VP, R&D director, designer for HTC One, all arrested, held without bail for selling secrets to China

    What is this going to do to HTC? Just seems kind of crazy the top 5 people at the company responsible for coming up with the HTC One all "allegedly" conspired to sell company secrets to China. Latest news(according to AFP) is that at least three were arrested by Taiwanese police and the courts have ordered them held without bail.


    "Earlier today, several top designers at HTC were arrested in Taipei under suspicion of fraudulent expense claims, as well as stealing trade secrets ahead of leaving the company to run a new mobile design firm in both Taiwan and mainland China. Five people were interrogated, with the most notable ones being Vice President of Product Design Thomas Chien (pictured above), R&D director Wu Chien Hung and design team senior manager Justin Huang (who also personally sketched out the One's design). Chien and Wu are taken into custody, whereas the others were released on bail (see video after the break). Their offices were also raided yesterday as part of the investigation."

    update: apparently these HTC executives are also charged with conspiracy to bill HTC for design fees from a dummy corporation that they set up. (for almost USD$320,000)

    Does HTC not pay these top executives/designer enough and cause them to turn to crime? Can't believe it's the same 5 guys who were came up with the design of the HTC One!

    Sad...
