HTC gives away 7 One M9s etched with Robert Downey Jr.'s autograph (US only)
Back in March, when HTC launched the One M9, it also released no less than 10 weird (and short) promo clips, all made in collaboration with superstar actor Robert Downey Jr. If you liked those clips, now HTC lets you win a special edition One M9 smartphone etched with Robert Downey Jr.'s signature - as seen in the slideshow below.

HTC is giving away 7 such One M9s in a contest that ends on June 30. To enter the contest, you must "create a photo, video or other content that displays what you love about the Robert Downey Jr. series and how the films have inspired you to create something new", then upload your creation on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or Vine) adding the #HTCxRDJContest hashtag.

The winners of the contest won't be randomly chosen. Instead, "a panel of qualified judges" determined by HTC will select 7 entries based on three criteria: quality of submission, originality / creativity, and "fit to contest theme." The winners will be announced on or about July 13.

Unfortunately for HTC and Robert Downey Jr. fans around the world, this contest is open only to US residents (age 13 or older). Make sure to read the official rules at the second source link below before entering the contest.

I see htc's marketing supervisors getting fired one by one. If apple is a marketing genius, htc is the reverse.

WTH! Is wrong with HTC, apart from the contest been tedious, that signature on the back looks butt ugly.

I wonder if there were any employees in HTC marketing department. They should all be fired by now.

True. I am a big fan of RDJ but I don't know what HTC did with him lol. Anyways it looks like he actually owns a One M7 according to his personal selfies.

I owned the HTC One M7 and it was a spectacular device from top to bottom. It's so disappointing to see what HTC has done since.

Hey, if you can't sell them, give them away. Is better a option than having inventory sit in a warehouse.
