HTC Zoe vs. Vine

The HTC One is set to launch shortly, but there is at least one feature that is worthy of discussion before the launch. That would be Zoe, a camera feature that allows you take short video clips or pictures and string them together in a several-second montage. Sound familiar? It should, because that's pretty much what the current hottest social app, Vine, is all about. With Zoe, you'll be able to add effects, creating something that borrows from both Vine and Instagram. HTC hopes to crack into the social sphere with Zoe, and now that the Myst is now a real thing, it tells us that HTC is going to heavily push social features. Zoe, however, probably will not be the success that HTC wants it to be. Someone has to say it, right? Vine already has an established user base, and has become somewhat synonymous with Twitter. While HTC One users may get small kicks out of Zoe, which is said to be enhanced by the ultrapixel camera, but widespread adoption is unlikely. Zoe, unlike other One features, is apparently set to stay exclusive to the One, at least for now. If so, what are HTC's long-term goals with Zoe? Unfortunately it seems like a case of simply being a tad too late to the party. We'll see how it all shakes out. Via: Know Your Mobile

HTC Will Let You Setup Your Future One

HTC will allow prospective One buyers to being customizing their phone before they even get one. In an attempt to build even more hype, the HTC Get Started site allows users to customize certain aspects of their currently non-existent phone. You'll be able to choose wallpapers, set passwords, and other user options right now. The portal also works for the One X and One VX. Curiously, the AT&T version of the One is not available. This is a smart way to get people even more excited about the One, even if at first it does sound a little odd. HTC is expected to pull out all the stops when it comes to the One, due in part to their increasingly poor luck.

HTC One Might Be Delayed After All

HTC has given the official word that the One will launch in certain markets later than expected. We knew that this was a possibility, and it looks like its come to pass. The One will officially be missing the Samsung Galaxy SIV launch, which could turn out to be quite unfortunate. HTC says that the plan to have the One out in most territories at the end of March and beginning of April. It's impossible to say if this has any affect on the U.S. launch, since a date has yet to be announced. The UK version, which was previously set to launch on the 15th, will instead launch on the 29th. Source: Slash Gear

HTC One Video Shows Blinkfeed in Action

The HTC One is set debut a number of new features, such as Binkfeed. We are quickly approaching the One's tentative release date -- an official one has yet to be given -- and so the internet is scrambling to secure more hands-on info. Enter Matthew Miller of ZDNet, who has posted a very informative video of how Blinkfeed will function. He does note that he is using an international version of the One with unfinished firmware, but the process shouldn't be too different from what the final product will look like. You can check out the 11 minute video right here, but it won't help make the wait any easier. Source: ZDNet

Don't Forget About Sense TV

One of the many new features set to launch with the HTC One is Sense TV, part of Sense 5.0. Android Authority has assembled a worthy piece going into the details of what, exactly, Sense TV is not. Spoiler alert: it's not streaming TV. Apparently Sense TV is little more than a glorified remote control that will only work on certain televisions and only through certain cable providers. Not exactly the most thrilling feature, especially since its use, at least initially, will be limited. An IR sensor will be built into the One to achieve the functionality. While Sense TV itself may not be worthy of ditching school and partying in the streets, it does speak volumes about where we're headed as consumers; constantly trying to tie entertainment mediums and features into each other. Some smartphones can achieve this already, but expect to see more and more as time goes on. Soon maybe we'll be able to control the microwave with our watch. That's not as much of a joke as it may sound. Source: Android Authority Via: Engadet

The U.S release hasn't exactly been officially pinned down yet, but around March 15th seems to be a good bet. U.S. pricing has also been somewhat of a mystery so far, but expect that information to roll out shortly. HTC is expected to make a strong push with the One -- for various reasons -- and they've even hired hugely popular Taiwanese band Mayday for marketing.

HTC Faces Financial Troubles

It hasn't been a huge secret that HTC has been in a somewhat precarious financial situation, but bad news continues to pile up. For the month of February, HTC has reported a 44% drop in profits. No, that's not good. More than ever, HTC needs a hit, and they hope it's going to be the upcoming HTC One. Stiff competition will come in the form of Samsung's Galaxy S4, and possibly even the iPhone 5S. According to CNET, the first sales quarter is rougher on smartphone producers, who usually enjoy a strong fourth quarter. HTC's profits have been dropping slowly over time, and now would be the time for a grand rescue. Now that the HTC One had a fantastic showing at MWC, hopefully it will drive enough consumer interest to help lift HTC back up. Either way, we'll find out soon enough. Source: CNET

HTC One Uses Unique Microphone

It seems the ruckus that HTC previously made over offering a unique audio experience may not have just been empty marketing. According to the official HTC blog, the One will make use of "dual-membrane" microphones for audio recording. In theory, this would allow for distortion free recording of loud events such as concerts, and whatever else you get up to in your free time. No judging. The new feature is called BoomSound, and utilizes the two membranes to focus on different aspects of sound. HTCs' focus on improved audio is an interesting move, and is sure to be appreciated by those that actually care about audio quality. A dying breed, for sure. Hopefully BoomSound will turn out as great as HTC is making it sound, but it's best to reserve judgment. Source: HTC Blog

Verizon HTC One Still Coming

Fear not, Verizon users! It looks like you haven't been totally forgotten! New details have emerged about the Verizon version of the HTC One. It's currently rumored to be in "testing," and could possibly see a releasing in 3-4 months. The news was leaked by a reliable source on Twitter, so it's still technically a rumor. The good news is that it might be, probably, possibly, coming to Verizon. The bad news is that there won't might not be any nice surprise launch announcements, or anything of that ilk. Verizon users are still sitting on the bench, but it looks like hope is just around the corner. A corner that happens to be 3-4 months long, that is. Source: Gotta Be Mobile
