We’re only four days away from the unveiling of the HTC One and that means we’ll be hearing plenty of leaked information and seeing plenty more leaked photos. One such photo is a supposed press shot of a black variant of the HTC One.
Yesterday, Wirefly dropped the price of the HTC DROID DNA on Verizon to $49.99 for new customers. Today, Amazon Wireless is doing the same. Amazon doesn’t take too kind to being out-discounted and thus has matched Wirefly’s deal for all new customers.
Despite the more recent HTC One X+, DROID DNA, and soon to be unveiled M7, HTC’s revenues and profits continue to fall. HTC claimed a while back that it was marketing to blame and so they went ahead and hired a new Chief Marketing Officer. However, I’m pretty sure I didn’t see HTC anywhere near the Super Bowl — so much for effective marketing.
A couple weeks back, James Taylor, former owner of HTCRUU.com was issued a Cease & Desist order from HTC’s lawyers over his domain name and the copyrighted files hosted on his site. Confusion soon arose over what exactly HTC took issue with and it soon escalated into a perceived attack on the developer community.
I usually don’t post on purported renders of devices yet announced and thus didn’t post up the early renders of the HTC M7. However, I’d like to point out, I was disappointed by the renders as they painted a picture of an HTC device that looked a whole lot like an iPhone 5. Thankfully, the latest batch of purported M7 images look more like an HTC device and less like, well… a you know what.
