    I'm so excited today that Sprint, HTC, and Harman is delivering incredible experience with the HTC One M8 HK edition.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:59:58 PM
    Since it launched, the HTC One M8 has been praised as the greatest smartphone ever made, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:00:19 PM
    When Sprint wanted to give customers an ultra-premium experience, they looked for the best phone in the market, he says.

    Chou touts the front-facing speakers. It's a phone for people who appreciates high-quality audio.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:00:51 PM
    Chou says this continues our promise to deliver best audio experience.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:01:03 PM
    OK, what does this phone look like? I can't take the suspense!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:01:07 PM
    Harmon's Clari-Fi tech puts the HTC One M8 even further ahead of the industry, he says.

    Quincy Jones.

  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:01:19 PM
    I've been using it everyday. I can tell you it's incredible. The song is pure and rich, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:01:49 PM
    For this exclusive version of the phone, we gave this high-quality body a unique black finish with champagne highlight.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:01:57 PM
    I bet you lose all that sweeter audio over a compressed Bluetooth connection.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:01 PM
    With one look, you'll know it's premium and powerful, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:09 PM
    It's only a phone that HTC can deliver, he says.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:02:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:25 PM
    And with that, Chou is wrapped up.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:30 PM
    But wait, there's more, Hesse says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:44 PM
    This is one of 14 devices with a real FM tuner, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:02:57 PM
    Hesse announces Sprint sound session, like premium access to live events and Spotify.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:03:10 PM
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:03:13 PM
    Ah, so Sprint gets the special One M8 with a black paint job and champagne highlight.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:03:16 PM
    Sprint announces a partnership with Spotify.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:03:30 PM
    Spotify CEO Daniel Ek comes on stage.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:03:43 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:02 PM
    When I first met Dan, we didn't talk about pricing plans, we talked about speakers and audio quality and Pharrell.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:08 PM
    That's when I knew we had to partner with Sprint.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:19 PM
    This is the biggest deal we've ever made, Ek says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:33 PM
    It fits with Spotify's strategy of getting more people on the service.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:04:33 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:46 PM
    This will establish us as a leader in streaming music, he says.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:04:50 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:04:58 PM
    Starting May 9, all Framily customers will get a 6-month trial of Spotify.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:05:12 PM
    Once the trial is over, they will get Spotify at the discounted rate of $7.99 a month.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:05:15 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:05:22 PM
    For 6-10 members, the rate falls to $4.99 a month.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:05:33 PM
    The $7.99 rate is for 1-5 customers on Framily.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:05:49 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:05:52 PM
    Non-Framily customers will get a 3-month trial. After that, it's $9.99 a month.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:05:56 PM
    6 months of Spotify for free...sounds like a nice perk.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:06:16 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:06:21 PM
    As analyst Bill Ho notes, the uniform for presenters today is dark jeans. Hip!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:06:36 PM
    Our shared passion for music and tech and Sprint's focus on quality and speed makes this a natural fit, Ek says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:07:02 PM
    Pharell Williams will now share his thoughts -- in video form.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:07:14 PM
    Williams is rocking that crazy big hat of his, as he talks about his music.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:07:25 PM
    You can't take him seriously with that big hat, no matter how serious he sounds.
