HTC One Developer Version is Back

After going out of stock last week, it looks like the Developer Edition of the HTC One is now back in stock. Well, sort of. They're expecting stock to arrive on the 23rd. This version of the HTC One is still a limited release, so if you've been on the fence about it now would be a good time to bite the bullet. As the title indicates, the Developer Edition is for modders and developers. If you don't have the necessary technical knowledge to take advantage of it, you should probably just stick with one of he normal variants. Via: Gotta Be Mobile.

HTC to Host Launch Event in China

HTC has sent out media invites to the launch event of the HTC One in Beijing. The event will take place on the 24th, but specific pricing and retail dates have yet to be announced. The 16GB version of the HTC One, which is a Taiwan exclusive, will stay that way. Chief Marketing Officer Benjamin Ho has described China is an interesting a difficult market where they will have to rely on "their own marketing muscle..." instead of the carriers. China is also going to receive three different customized versions of the HTC One. These models will have a removable back and are the only models currently available that offer this feature. Other unique features include dual SIM slots and a Micro-SD card slot. Without having pricing information, it looks like China's version of the HTC One is set to not only be the most unique, but also the apple of everyone's eye. Another way of saying that would be to simply say that we're jealous. So, yeah. Source: The China Post

HTC Gets Funny

HTC have partnered with Funny or Die to offer a 3-minute ad for the HTC One. The ad stars James Van Der Beek as the host of "The One" (get it?) a Bachelor-like show in which all the male contestants are phones. These phones each show how awful they are while showing off both BoomSound and Zoe. In a nice bit of self-referential humor, Van Der beek remarks: "What is she looking for, a relationship or a phone?" But you shouldn't have it ruined for you, so go check it out. This is not the first time that Funny or Die has churned out content for HTC. In the past, they've made ads for the Windows Phone. It's a smart way to target a specific audience and have a shot at going viral. Here's to HTC for being funny without being cringe-worthy. "Listen, I'm not going to take dating advice from a rotary phone." Okay, I'm done.

The HTC One is King

When it comes to technology you only have a very limited amount of time to be both groundbreaking and popular. The tech world moves far to quickly to support a winner for any great length of time due to the ever-looming threat of competition. Well, for the moment, the HTC One reigns. We hope to take our own look at the device soon, but the word around town is that this phone is the one to beat. For some people, like the writers over at Engadget, have been aware of this for almost a month. It looks like for the first time the iPhone actually has some very serious competition. Even though Android has been enjoying a greater market share for some time, it still hasn't been able to make a sizable dent into the iPhone. This is partially due to problems such as fragmentation, which involves too many devices running very different versions of Android. Since we already know that the HTC pre-orders have been an overwhelming success, the only thing HTC has to do now is bring its A-game to the table. The tech that goes into a new iPhone release is most often not the best of what's currently available, but that doesn't usually matter; the Apple brand carries many things, including a large amount of consumer trust. Even though HTC's more immediate competition comes from Samsung and the Galaxy S4, Apple represents an entirely different type of competition. People can argue all day whether they prefer Apple's iOS to Android, but the HTC One is starting to look like the first real device that could be held up in an example: "This is why Android is better." HTC has the advantage right now. The iPhone 5S is rumored to launch this summer and it wouldn't even be good sport to assume that it won't sell. Of course it will. But Apple's "S" line of iPhone usually only represents a small increase in tech. It's very possible that the HTC One could out-perform the iPhone 5S. And then the game will change again when Apple releases the more affordable version of the iPhone. Which, of course, is part of the fun. Now that the it's been revealed that Sprint will offer the HTC One for $99 as part of a promotion, it makes almost no sense to wait for a new iPhone. Really, what the HTC One represents is the beginning of what HTC and Android are really capable of, and it certainly doesn't look like Peter Chou will be stepping down anytime soon.

Sprint Launching HTC One with No Branding

It seems the times of change might be afoot. Sprint will be launching the HTC One without its ugly mark anywhere on it. To the less particular among us this news won't amount to much, but to others that feel unnecessary over-branding on a device ruins its natural beauty, well, you get the idea. This comes as part of Sprint's new marketing plan, and it speaks very loudly about confidence. Of course, that Beats Audio logo is still stuck on there so obviously you can't win them all.

HTC One $99 at Sprint for New Customers

Remember T-Mobile's unattractive installment plan for the HTC One? Well, Sprint has done them one better. Way better. For a limited time, Sprint is offering the HTC One for a pre-order price of $99 with a two-year contract for new customers. This excludes Sprint users whose contracts just happen to be up, unfortunately. You have to be a brand new user switching from another carrier and you need to bring your own number. Besides that there are no other strings attached. That makes this currently the best deal in the U.S market to get the HTC One. Sprint is also going to "attempt" to get the phone in the hands of customers before the official launch on the 19th. A pretty good one-two punch. So...are you going to switch over? Source: Sprint

HTC Makes Source Code Available

In a move that's likely to please the developer community, HTC has unleashed the source codes for the HTC One and Droid DNA to HTC Dev. Prospective modders will now be able to get their mitts on what makes those respective devices tick and make it their own. Of course, it's not recommended that just anyone plays god with their device, so make sure you know what you're doing beforehand. Have at it. Source: @HTCdev

HTC Profits Down 98% in First Quarter

HTC's entire existence at this point seems to be ruled by the idea of the double-edged sword. After reporting record pre-order numbers for the HTC One in the U.S, they have now made public the fact that they've had the worst quarter since, well, ever. In the first quarter of 2013, HTC's profit's plummeted by 98%. If it wasn't incredibly clear previously, it should be now that HTC has to make the One a success. Hopefully they will also be bolstered by the First, but let's take it one step at a time. For anyone keeping track, this is HTC's sixth quarter of reported loss. Via: Tech Crunch

HTC One is Going on Tour

HTC is very aware that they need to pull out all the stops, and since they don't have the captial for a marketing blitz, they're going to do things old-school. And so the HTC One is going on tour. The HTC One Live Experience Tour will offer potential customers the chance to experience some of the One's features. The show will come to 11 citites, and offer three different roadshow experiences: The HTC BoomSound Lounge, The HTC One Showroom, and The HTC One Cinema Experience. In fact, starting today the HTC BoomSound Lounge will be available in six cities: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. April 11th will see the premier of HTC One Showrooms in popular malls. The Cinema Experience will, aptly enough, be available in the lobbies of select movie theaters. In addition to all that, HTC will also host special concerts for fans. It's impressive to see what HTC has been able to come up with to battle Samsung. Bringing the devices to the people is a smart idea, and it was especially nice the first time they tried.
