HTC hints that something big is coming with new Instagram video
There might not be that much happiness in Taiwan these days with speculation that the company is going to be sold. That rumor was shot down by HTC during the weekend. And while the video could be all about the HTC One Max, some believe that it has nothing to do with a phone at all, and that the man coming off the chopper is HTC's new pitchman, Robert Downey Jr. Although it was never confirmed by the Taiwan based manufacturer, last month there were rumors circulating that the Iron Man star would be paid $12 million over two years to promote HTC's handsets.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Maybe they could do some Ironman exclusive phones.
When i realized the 'sleek' looking phones in Ironman 3 was from Alcatel, i was kind of baffled. They weren't so special...
But this one here is Maxx for sure.

Yep, I'm pretty sure if you pause it at 0:04 that we are looking at the device right there. The back looks slightly different from the smaller HTC One.

ya it does look a bit different
but the max wouldn't be that small

And is it just me or is RDJ walking like super weird

It's not really that small, it's just as wide as you would think it would be. Given the fact that the leaks have shown a smaller bezel around the device, I would think they are able to offer the 5.9 inch screen size in a size similar to the Galaxy Note II.

Last year compared the S3 and One X and the S3 blew away the HTC in every category.
This year went to Best Buy and looked at the S4 and HTC One. The One makes the S4 feel like a cheap phone you would get for free on contract. Was very impressed.

Software wise the s4 wins, hardware wise they are about equal.

use sense 5, HTC will make you feel premium with the simplest of feature they offer....

I would kill myself rather than use that horrible UI.

If the HTC One Max doesnt have an 8MP camera instead of 4mp than HTC failed.

I hope they make a red and gold one and have it be an Ironman Edition.

And they name their personal assistant app Jarvis.

I know its probably not possible but it would be cool if they could make Google nows voice Jarvis's voice.

That is what I was thinking, and I would buy it day One. I'm planning on buying it anyway, but that edition would rock.
