Just days after Samsung released a poignant video about how their people came up with the design idea for the Galaxy S 4, HTC releases its own version of One's design video. Seems like HTC is staying true to its promise not to be too "quiet" and increase its presence in the market through advertisements.
Moreover, it also looks like HTC is really bent on taunting Samsung because both videos feature the phones' "designers" speaking interview-style. Notice Samsung's use of instrumental music and one of the designers calling S 4 an "evolution", whereas HTC opts not to put background music and calling HTC One a "breakthrough" phone.
Furthermore, HTC includes a clip of how they use their unique etching process to create the back cover of the One and points out how the HTC people created a phone that does not distract the user with unnecessary parts and has a zero-gap design. Good for HTC for stepping out of its comfort zone and advertising in direct opposition with Samsung. For those who haven't seen the Samsung video, here is the link to view it.
To say that HTC One is delayed is an obvious understatement. However, considering that Taiwan is the home country and that it is not one of the first countries to receive its shipment is just something that its home market has to deal with. The long wait is over and HTC has released a statement that the device will finally be sold in its home market this week.
Furthermore, the HTC One variants that will be sold in Taiwan will be offered with a lower internal memory than the internationally released versions. At 16GB, HTC One fans in Taiwan will have to make do with the compromise to finally get their much-awaited device. It will be sold for approximately $675, so hurry and check out your HTC store if you want this device very badly.
