HTC’s management makes great hardware, but they have always had trouble when it comes to marketing its devices, and with the upcoming launch of the HTC One Max, it has gone to a whole new level of strange. HTC released their new flagship smartphone, the U.S. release of HTC One was back in April 2013 to rave reviews with its beautiful aluminum body and dual speakers on the front. But for all of its looks, there were supply distribution troubles and the initial launch was a manufacturers’ nightmare – HTC is still in dire financial trouble and this HTC One was to be their savior, but rather than having a huge global launch, it sputtered for a while, but by the time HTC straightened out its woes, other flagship devices were released and the HTC One sold less units than it should have with a proper launch on all carriers.
The HTC released the HTC One Mini in August – an exact replica of its bigger brother, with lesser specifications, and a great selling price of only $99 on a two-year contract. Even as the original HTC One and Mini were being sold, HTC was hard at work developing its HTC One phablet model, called the HTC One Max – complete with fingerprint scanner and 6-inch Full HD display, 3,3oo mAh battery and an announcement by October 17.
So this completes the HTC One “family” of phones, much like the “Three Little Bears,” we have the Max (papa), the One (momma), and the Mini (baby)…well, HTC has taken this and its three initials to a whole new level with their latest infographics and famous trios throughout history – really, I am not lying. Besides the “Hip Thrust Coordination” and “Three Amigos,” how about “Hearing Tasty Cereal” and that ever popular trio, “Snap, Crackle, and Pop?” Next up is “Hogwarts’ Tenacious Children” with “Harry, Ron, and Hermione.” Next we have “How to Choose…?” with “Henry VIII, Catherine, and Anne.” Not to be outdone by “Hello Top (of the) Charts,” and “Destiny’s Child.” How about “Heroic Tired Crusader” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” with Cat Woman, Batman, and a police officer named Robin. And last, but certainly not least, “Hopes, Traps, and Chewy” in the “Star Wars Original Trilogy.”
So there you have it, HTC’s leadup to the HTC One Max’s release and the end of their HTC One trilogy – Please let us know if you will be in line to purchase the new HTC One Max phablet on release day. Hit us up in the comments or on Google+, where you’ll find all of the action.
