HTC looks to have put together a very strong challenger to Android’s most-lauded device in the form of the questionably-entitled ‘One’. With a beautiful aluminum unibody nicely complimented by a Gorilla Glass 2 front panel, it will be available in the United States by the end of April. Meanwhile, for people in the United Kingdom, Germany and the company’s native Taiwan, launch is as early as next week. Asia Pacific countries will also see the release at the end of this month.
Although the company has somewhat gone back on its word of not confusing the consumer (by going with ‘One’ after ‘One X’ and ‘One X+’), it’s certainly the closest thing we’ve seen to a realistic Galaxy contender. The previous two flagships from the “quietly brilliant” company were certainly quiet, and not particularly brilliant for that matter, so the onus is on the One to try and get back some of the market share from Samsung.
