    I don't think that is the HTC One. Too many differences: One doesn't have Micro SD, TD101 does. One has 4MP Ultra Pixel camera, TD101 has 8MP. One doesn't have Beats Audio, TD101 does.

    This just seems like some cross between the HTC One X and the HTC One. I know, it's close enough for this shooting down of the one phone, many carriers idea though.

    What is your opinion of this? You posted the link and nothing else.

    Yeah, it actually looks like a repackaged HTC EVO 4G LTE. If I had to guess, they are getting a phone to China that is less expensive but still looks like the One to be able to sell a cheaper phone but still have the product recognition across the world. It might not be the worst idea. Apple is rumored to be working on doing something similar.

    No. It looks nothing like an Evo LTE. It looks exactly like a ONE and with all the ONE specs except that has been modified (SD card and camera) and renamed to meet a specific carrier's want. Exactly what HTC said they were not going to do. It is not good news if they cave in only days after the ONE is released. It is even worse news if they can't get Verizon on board.

    Exactly. HTC obviously does not have the resources to support many different devices after release from a software perspective( you should not take over a month to fix something you broke in an OTA release"proximity sensor issue") nor in advertising for new phone models. It's like as if people are telling HTC what they want(sd card, removable battery, ONE flagship phone for quick updates, timely release of source code for devs, etc.)and they just don't listen. This One series of one flagship device around the world has been announced for less than a week and already they're fragmenting the thing. I'm sure they'll make another version of it for Verizon as well. I really like HTC's products but they seem to be hell bent on making thing more and more difficult for themselves year after year lately.

    I don't understand this rationale. What is the problem here? HTC is releasing a device in China that appears to be a variant of the One. Only one Android OEM has released a single, identical device across all carriers worldwide. That was Samsung with the GS3. That wasn't their only device obviously, but they all looked identical. If you zoom in or out on pictures of every Samsung device released last year so they all show up the same size on a page, I think they all look exactly the same. And there is nothing wrong with that, but it's a fact. As long as HTC is not selling this as a variant of the One I don't understand what the problem is. From a marketing standpoint I get it, a little. It looks like a One so they should call it a One. But let's cut HTC a little slack here. It took Samsung three full generations of the Galaxy series to launch their singular device. The OG Galaxy devices were all over the map and GS2 was probably more frustrating because they were all almost identical, but just different enough to make cases and screen protectors carrier-specific. This is only HTC's second generation of devices in one series, so I'd say they're a little bit ahead of the curve.

    And the software/fragmentation argument is so flawed. When HTC gets the next great Android update playing nice w/ Sense and their camera and image sensor then they'll roll it out. We'll still be waiting for awhile because we're not GSM, but we'll get it eventually. If it were OEMs causing delays because of under-staffing then tell me why every GS3 didn't get JB at the same time. I don't think Samsung is having issues hiring software folks. Every Nexus device isn't updated at the same time either. And why are our One X bretheren on AT&T still waiting for their JB update? That certainly can't be HTC. Obviously they have Sense and JB playing nice. Everyone else has it on the One X (including our EVOs). And it's not like they have to worry about CDMA drivers and the like, since Android architecture is build on GSM technology. It seems like maybe the carriers have a lot to do with it. A whole lot. Just ask folks on Verizon about their super-fast update schedules.

    This makes absolutely no sense. They're going from multiple one series devices to one, with small variants here or there depending on the market. Adding in things like micro SD card slots makes no difference, because the software already supports it.

    If they had introduced a completely different model you would have a point, but they didn't.

    This makes me think that the EVO line may still be intact....take an HTC ONE, color it red,possibly add a kickstand, and SD slot, and maybe tweak the camera just a lil and BAM tell me you wouldn't buy it...if you're HTC you have still delivered on the ONE device promised and you have maintained an alliance with Sprint, which is something that was pivotal in getting you where you are today. If you are Sprint it means you have yet another flagship device to market. The GS3 is a fine phone but to offer customers a choice of basically the same phone across all major carrier doesn't bode well when you are #3 or #4 with significant network issues

    Yeah, the variant being released in China has no relevance. As has been previously stated by others it's nearly unheard of for most phones to be identical worldwide.

    The EVO line is dead. It's always been a top of the line device, and since the ONE's specs are boarder line porn, I don't think Sprint will make HTC make an even better phone for them.

    Yea I think the EVO line has ran it's course and sprint knows it .. If you go to sprint's website and read the discription they have of the HTC ONE they specifically mention that if you are a fan of the EVO line you will love the new ONE which makes me think they want to transition people's minds away from the EVO branding
