The new One announced by HTC

HTC OneHTC just announced the new One, the latest version of its latest flagship smartphone. The phone features aluminum unibody construction like last year’s model with 90% aluminum vs 70% last year which makes it a little heavier. Buyers will get a beautiful design and a huge 5-inch, 1080p S-LCD3 screen that gamers should love! The front is protected by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3 so your little brother will have a harder time breaking it as well.

With a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 and 2GB of RAM it should be able to handle all sorts of games including 3D graphics. Buyers can choose between 16GB and 32GB versions, and HTC is including a microSD slot that can accomodate 128GB more in storage. Finally, Google is replacing Dropbox and will provide 50GB of storage on Drive for two years. It’s amazing to see this whole new ecosystem grow up around phones!

And that doesn’t even get to the games! Phones like this drive the mobile game market, as they make the whole experience that much more enjoyable. Even games that don’t have masssive animation like poker for Android phone are just more fun to play on a beautiful screen.

And of course all of this leads to a discussion of Apple, and the new state of affairs where they are now trying to keep up with the competition instead of inventing new categories. Perhaps their incredible run would have slowed even if Steve Jobs were still at the helm. And of course for now they are still a cash-generating machine, but they’re getting attacked at the high and low end. Now there are tons of $50 tablets on Amazon, and it’s easy to play games like online poker there as well.

As for HTC, they’re pushing ahead with regular improvements, and that keeps the Android market humming. If you’re a mobile game developer, you have to be drooling at the exploding market.
