Relive the entire HTC One launch event from Barcelona

peter-chou-one-630

HTC easily had the best press event I attended at Mobile World Congress. Peter Chou is slowly becoming a rock star and I was on the edge of my seat during the entire 45 minute presentation, even after being awake for 40 strait hours. Thankfully HTC has uploaded the entire performance to YouTube if you want to check it out this weekend. And for those that don’t have an hour to spare, there is a condensed 5-minute version below.

    Am I the only person who finds Peter Chou scarier than Jim Kong-Un!

    • Bpear96

      Jim, i believe you mean kim there buddy..

      • Toonshorty

        True that…

        He’s an awesome guy but I find his random velocity when he speaks quite frightening.

  • copa

    that is one sick presantation, love the background!

    But what me really teases:
    Does it come with / without Headphones? beats.audio doesn’t mean it comes with the headphones.
    Can someone link some trustworthy links?

    • Eric

      The phone only comes out in April.
      I’m sure the details will be clearer by then…
      Though if not mistaken it should come with iBeats headphones…

    I love sense 4 if tmobile does get stock ICS on their HTC One x I will have to root it and put sense 4 on it :)

  • spazby

    HTC had a very successful showing…

  • Shawn Clark

    That conference was what it was…ICS w/ Sense 4…when these HTC updates kick in and the One is released…other OEM’s gonna need to do sumthin…i believe HTC is focused and has the upperhand.

  • Aaron

    Hey about a spell checker?

  • mlynch01

    Watched the entire press event and I must say I am impressed. I can’t wait to replace my G2 with the One X on T-Mo if the rumors are true about it coming.

  • Anjie

    peter chou’s voice… but the phones, god damn sexy

  • sunrise

    I just have one question.

    Why no expandable microSD slot? Why HTC? WHY?!?!?!

    • Joe*D

      Because they slow down the phone and most consumers will blame the phone manufacturer and not the card. “I just bought this 32gb sd card, but they phone the phone is so slow I can”t stand to fill it up!”…”D@mn, I knew I should have bought an Iphone”…”Sc&w HTC, they’ll never get my money again……..”

      Read this and you can see why any phone manufacturer that provides an sd slot is sticking their neck out.

    I just had an idea. What about MediaLink with the phone as the controller and game running on TV? The reason I hate games on phones is because of the cluttered screen controllers…

  • Raptor

    i remember his conferences two years ago. “we at HTC have the vision…”. And since this on the surface nice looking vision materialized in two terribly made HD2 and EVO 4G i was literally shocked. Avoiding HTC and don’t listen their presentations since then. Switched to Sammy. HTC and Samsung Galaxy are from different galaxies.

    I now use the GNex but wish the specs on my N1 could be upgraded…i love/loved that phone and i love what HTC did with the N1. I want a decent HTC replacement for my N1 that runs pure Android out of the box…therefore if the ONE X comes to Tmobile with vanila Android i will hop on that band wagon pretty fast. Or better still is for Google to let HTC return as the OEM of the next Nexus..i foresee a killer device from them. With their new camera tech, arc-oxidized aluminum uni-body tech hopefully designed so as to enable replacable battery, a 4.5″ to 4.7″ screen w/ curved glass hopefully super amoled plus, hopefully w/a Qualcomm S4, OMAP 5, or Tegra 4 chip breathing life into such a device. Some of these upcoming chips will have the ability to integrate 3G/HSPA+/LTE so one Nexus device capable of playing nice with all or most of the Networks. Hopefully this time Google will launch the next Nexus simultaneously on all the Networks that want the device , instead of this exclusive fiasco we saw w/ the GNex on Verizon
