HTC's Gordon warns kid who leaked The All New HTC One on video

0. phoneArena 03 Mar 2014, 00:26 posted on

On Sunday, we showed you a video of The All New HTC One that was filmed February 19th, and posted on social media Sunday by a kid named Roshan Jamkatel. During the video, the kid says that the phone is not yet available, and does everything he can to cover up the device's unique IMEI number posted on the back of the device...

That's horrible he could've just sent a direct message to the kid. I'm not even that excited anymore we pretty much know all there is to know about the phone already. Or this may just be publicity stunt idk but either way it's not good marketing HTC.

HTC makes the design of their latest flagship smartphone which makes HTC One's design look horrible, it being worse, and they make fun of the S5's design. How very ironis, HTC.

"We'll be in touch," said in a way that probably required the kid to change his shorts.

You guy that blame HTC are too funny. The kid did not magically want to HTC and stole it or HTC gave it to him. The prototype was one of his parent. The parent was a tester and the kid take it from his parent, his parent lost their job I am guessing.

He should have just put a posted note over the back to hide the codes & everything would have been OK, now he or his parents are in real trouble.

I can't side with the kid here, he made it too easy to trace back to himself, and what he was doing was illegal. HTC definitely needs to improve it's security as well, but I would guess that the kid (or whoever gave him the phone) is legally at fault here.

At least he can say he one-upped the 8 minute Nexus 5 leak last year.

One of his parents or something must be a developer for HTC. This kid is just dumb, he barely even tried to hide all the information on the device. You can clearly see the IMEI, he linked to his own twitter profile, and we saw his face.

Don't blame the kid if you can't properly keep your own products a secret. That was pathetic and frankly very childish.

so if your kid went out a killed cats for fun and broke into cars we should not blame the kid we should have you arrested and locked in jail thats what you are saying, every person in this world needs to be held accountable for what they did he is a high schooler that stole something and did what he know was illegal

If this is IPX58/68 Certified this would surely fire up the competition.

All you blaming HTC are just dumb. HTC should have better security, HTC should control their leaks better, blah, blah, blah. This kid new what he did was wrong and illegal yet he did it anyway. He posted the video, he took the action he knew was wrong, therefore he (or if a minor, his parents as well) need to take responsibility for HIS actions. Too many people in this world want to blame others for their own stupid mistakes.

This is nothing but a publicity stunt aimed to make the tech news and take some attention from the Galaxy S5.

I mean technically it wont be a good week for him when his dad loses his job anyways, so it is none-the-less a true statement.

HTC needs to back off and relax.if anything this kid is helping build up hype for the phone. Nobody is being hurt in any way.
