    Typically, metal bodies and antennas don't mix. But HTC found a workaround.
  • Brian Bennett 2/19/2013 3:44:52 PM
    OK you've seen it here folks. Phones have officially become jewelry...just like William Gibson predicted.

    The phone's design looks clean and's a shame that the carriers will plaster their logos on it.

    Mike Woodward, HTC's Americas President, on stage now.
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:45:45 PM
    Woodward: This is the best phone ever made.
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:45:58 PM
    (I'm sure other handset vendors would disagree)
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:46:05 PM
    This is HTC's largest rollout ever, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:46:15 PM
    The new HTC One will begin shipping in late March.

    @Roger Yes, especially Samsung
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:46:46 PM
    In the U.S., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Best Buy will sell it.
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:46:53 PM
    It will come in black or silver (white).

    HTC made metal mobiles a big deal (who remembers the HTC Legend?). I wasn't thrilled with last year's plastic efforts, but the company knows its way around a forge. Here's hoping that metal casing doesn't scratch...
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:47:05 PM
    HTC customers can turn in their current phone for $100 toward the One.
  • Brian Bennett 2/19/2013 3:47:38 PM
    OK, so no Verizon for the HTC One...they must be getting a special phone for themselves!
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:47:42 PM
    Woodward says it's your turn to experience the best phone ever made. He walks off to music.
  • Brian Bennett 2/19/2013 3:47:51 PM
    OK, more hands-on time. Let's go!
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:48:05 PM
    The curtains are opening and folks are heading over to check out the phone.
  • Brian Bennett 2/19/2013 3:48:06 PM
    Thanks everyone for watching!
  • Roger Cheng 2/19/2013 3:48:45 PM
    And that's a wrap. Thanks all for tuning in to the live blog.
