On a serious note: that HTC sounds like it has some REALLY nice construction - aluminum unibody. Up there with the iphones. HTC is going all out.

I wonder if HTC hopes to get more sales from looking like other devices (nokia now BB) instead of actually trying to do their own design and having zero mindshare with costumers.
There is no way they would be unaware that their devices look extremely similar to two different flagship devices. We need innovation. Everyone aside from BB isn't innovating.

I just saw something you all missed. The similarities aren't just external. In Sense 5.0 when you pull up the multitasking screen it looks very similar to the bb10 homescreen of running apps. And where on BB10 you touch the X to close the 'cards', on the HTC One you swipe the cards and close the apps. Android jellybean also already has a pretty robust notification system. It's not a "hub" but it is very good nonetheless. The phone also enjoys a fast and smooth UI, a better camera, and obviously apps. The cherry on top is their clever 'blinkfeed' screen which really took me by surprise because nobody has done this yet. Throw in one of the numerous swipe-gesture apps that allow you to mimic all of bb10 and Ubuntu's swipe gestures and you're good to go. Honest and brutal truth? You'd have an incredibly hard sell to get a customer in your store to leave with a z10 in their hands over this. I'm not trying to be mean, but it's pretty cut and dry IMO. Even if I was a die-hard "pure Google " nexus nut, I would buy this over a Nexus any day, no question.Carrier controlled updates is the worst smartphone spec of them all

It looks like a mix between the iPhone 5 and Z10.all smartphones are tools.
android = 48pc tool set (you"ll eventually find the tool you need, but some assembly required)
iphone = swiss army knife (most of the tools you need in a small, simple to use package)
blackberry = adjustable wrench (sometimes all you need is a wrench)
windows phone = bionic wrench (its different....but it works)

Actually more like the iPhone5 look at the phones backside and sideways and look at the rounded corners and metal around it. They can't get sue by apple
as per their agreement or else they would not have went with such a similar design.Watch Hulu and Netflix on the Playbook

Personally, I think that new Sense UI is an abomination. It seems to be made ENTIRELY for media consumption and social feeds. I am, without a doubt, not the target demographic for the HTC One, I don't see anything there that will help me get things done efficiently.#itsjustaphone

Does anyone else see a little Z10 in the HTC One
Well said. with the bb10 porting over certain android apps and having a very minimal "built for BlackBerry" apps section I give this round to htc and jellybean. They have done wonders to android over the past yeah.
As a hardcore BlackBerry user I watched the android central video from the htc show of phil's hands on and aside from the camera motion app when looking at your gallery lagging this phone looked awesome. Just sucks because its such a huge device. I'm a 4.1-4.3 inch fan for full touch.
