Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
The HTC One, a new wireless smartphone, was announced and introduced to the marketplace yesterday, and was covered in this Washington Post piece.
The following are comments by Tech Analyst Jeff Kagan.
“HTC One is a brand new smartphone that HTC is using to refresh and reinvent the brand.” According to wireless analyst Jeff Kagan. “HTC One will be available on AT&T Mobility, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile. What about Verizon Wireless?”
“This is a new design and new technology for a smartphone, and HTC hopes it can change the wrong direction they’ve been on in the marketplace. The design is very interesting. It is a Google Android operating system, but the user interface looks quite a bit like Microsoft Windows Phone 8. HTC introduced “Blinkfeed”, which highlights updates from a variety of Apps in a layout of squares. At launch some interesting Apps include Twitter, Facebook, AOL and Flickr.” Says Kagan.
“HTC says Blinkfeed combines social and news content to create unique and relevant content that’s different for every user. That could be key to HTC’s hopes for success. This HTC One introduction cannot come too soon. HTC has been licking their wounds in the smart phone wars of late. HTC is slipping further behind Apple and Samsung. HTC is a Taiwanese company and is in fourth-place in smart phones behind Samsung, Apple and Nokia. Yes that Nokia.” Says Kagan.
