HTC One will be in your face for three months, as the company plans Showrooms in major US malls

HTC One will be in your face for three months, as the company plans Showrooms in major US malls
Apple has its Stores, Samsung has its Shops inside Best Buy, now HTC is planning to occupy its own Showrooms, temporarily placed in major shopping centers across the US with the one goal - to tout the HTC One.

HTC acknowledged that it hasn't been aggressive enough last year with the One series around the S III launch, and as a result its handsets got lost in the publicity noise of Samsung. 

Apparently it is determined that this year it won't be the case, trading barbs with Sammy on Twitter, and now planning a retail assault on the US public for three months following the launch of the device on major carriers here. Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. will be the focus points, and Erin McGee, vice president of marketing for HTC in North America, commented with the following:

The us market is the most important market. If they can't succeed in it, they are dead.

America is s huge market, and honestly HTC is extremely underrated, I work for Verizon and observe all my friends and people around me, and everyone sleeps on HTC, and in my opinion they are a superior manufacturer, although I have a note 2. Good move HTC

i agree.but hopefully HTC will also do some extra effort on promoting thier product on the market outside US.coz based on thier latest sales they really need the MArket (not only US) for a bigger sales..

I'm pretty excited that HTC is setting up displays in major malls in the US. This means one will definitely be in NYC and I get to check the phone out since Verizon doesn't seem to be getting one in the near future.

Funny, samsung won't do any of this and still sell like 10x more handsets in the US. Still International S4 is better than the HTC one and US s4.

so now more sales means its better....no it just means people are becoming followers and the s4 will ride off the s3's success just like the iphone the 5 rode the 4s's rep and success sales arent an indicator for the best phone just the more popular

**** To HDShatter **** Look at this chat, and you will see how much got brain washed by samsung's advertisement. http://static1.businessinsider.com/image/50b9282869bedd8822000058-940-705/chart-of-the-day- you are paying a compnay using more money advertising! not really developing on the product.

This is a good move for HTC. They should focus sales in US and in EUROPE. Those are 2 of the biggest market and its the smartest way to make a comback.

Quality? Get an HTC one, I will be awaiting your complaints on dents/scratching. Everyone I know with an HTC phone hates it, also most of them have shattered screens from like 2-3 feet drops.
