HTC One Max Robert Downey Jr full-length teaser appears [UPDATE]

HTC One Max Robert Downey Jr full-length teaser appears [UPDATE]

While just a couple of bits and pieces were spilled yesterday, overnight it would appear that HTC made with the full-length video spot for their newest campaign entitled "Big Things Ahead." They also use the tag #HTChange, a single iteration of the multi-word collection of possibilities for what H.T.C. could stand for. It's also been suggested that this advertisement teases not only the HTC One Max, but the oncoming brand embodiment by Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man himself.

HTC One Max and Robert Downy Jr teased in viral video spot

HTC One Max and Robert Downy Jr teased in viral video spot

This afternoon HTC has teased "Big things ahead" with a teaser for a trailer - yes, such things do now exist - for a new device or service, two of the most likely candidates being the fabled HTC One Max and the addition of Robert Downey Jr. It's been suggested more than once in the very recent past that Iron Man himself would be taking on a role not unlike a brand ambassador for the company, and it doesn't look impossible that the fellow jumping off the helicopter in this spot would be him - but that's far less important than the device, right?

HTC One Max appears in early testing

HTC One Max appears in early testing

If you're not all about the smaller iteration of the HTC One in the most recent release from the company in the HTC One Mini, it would appear that HTC is also headed in the opposite direction with a bit more of a palm-filler. This device is tipped as the HTC One Max, bringing a 5.9-inch display to the market (we must assume) sooner than later, aimed directly at the likes of Samsung's own plus-sized hero in the Samsung Galaxy Note III.

Verizon HTC One release set for Blue

Verizon HTC One release set for Blue

If you expected the Verizon release of the HTC One to be done without any special fanfare, it's time to amp up the volume. This week it's been tipped that the big red edition of the HTC One won't be done in the standard silver, nor the internationally released red. Instead, this version of the HTC One will be done in a cool blue. UPDATE: Though it still may have a blue edition down the line, the first Verizon HTC One will be silver, and it'll be here in September.

Verizon HTC One release date moved to August 15th

Verizon HTC One release date moved to August 15th

Though we'd seen this machine in a leaked roadmap pinning it for the first of August of this year, the Verizon HTC One has appeared bumped to the middle of the month instead. What we're assuming here is that the move has a lot to do with the oncoming push for the Motorola Moto X. There's also the Motorola lineup of DROID devices coming to the carrier, each of them set for release inside August as well.

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

The original HTC One works with HTC's own "Sense" user interface, while the Google Play edition works with Googles' - MoDaCo.SWITCH allows you to choose which of the two you like better at any given time. This system is a hack, at heart, requiring that you root your device before you allow yourself the freedom to choose either the HTC Sense or Android Jelly Bean Vanilla iteration at the tap of a button (and a few seconds' wait). What you get, though, is a completely unique set of controls.

HTC One mini Review

HTC One mini Review

Several months after the first market availability of the original HTC One, the HTC One mini emerges as a compact amalgamation of everything that was right about its predecessor. Working with a smaller body, a lower resolution on a sized-down display, and a processor that's not quite as powerful as the Qualcomm SoC on the HTC One, can this miniature second wave of a smartphone strike true for those of us with a smaller palm?

Qualcomm earnings show record quarter as Snapdragon keys in on smartphone heroes

If you picked up an HTC One, a Samsung Galaxy S 4, an LG Optimus G, or a Motorola DROID RAZR HD device over the past few months, you're now working with Qualcomm hardware.

Qualcomm's fiscal Q3 2013 starts with a cool $6.24 billion in revenues, up 35% compared to the same quarter last year.
