HTC Vox – I’m still kinda yawning

HTC Vox – I’m still kinda yawning

It was quite reassuring to see that, after I derided the design of HTC's keyboard-slide smartphones a few days ago (in a sort of dreary celebration of HTC Titan photos emerging), quite a few other tech opinionists came out in agreement.  Still, I suppose it's a little too soon to expect the company's designers to entirely rethink their product line, hence the similarly-mundane appearance of this, the HTC Vox.
