HTC has a “Major Announcement” to Make Tomorrow, Any Guesses?

What could HTC possibly have planned for tomorrow?  That is anyone’s guess, but their plan is to have CEO Peter Chou jump in front of a mic and let the world know that something is about to go down.  Could we expect NFC chip talk?  New HD screen technology (HTC Vigor)?  Locked bootloader progress or additional details?  Something Ice Cream Sandwich?  Maybe their new Puccini Honeycomb tablet?  Or perhaps they just want to publicly pimp slap Apple for acting like a spoiled 3rd grader?


  • I am only writing to let you understand what a superb experience our girl had reading your web site. She noticed lots of pieces, which include how it is like to possess a very effective giving character to have the others smoothly thoroughly grasp several complex issues. You truly exceeded my desires. Many thanks for giving such warm and helpful, healthy, informative and also fun guidance on your topic to Julie.

  • I just paid $22.85 for an iPad 264GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.com

  • My spouse and i got very fulfilled that Albert managed to finish off his researching via the precious recommendations he had through the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to just happen to be making a gift of tips and hints that many some others could have been selling. Therefore we grasp we have the writer to thank because of that. The specific illustrations you made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you can aid to instill – it’s got most incredible, and it’s leading our son and our family understand this theme is cool, and that is highly important. Thank you for the whole lot!

    How about the HTC Vigor with beats by dre and Ice cream sandwich all for $200 on Verizon LTE released in less than 2 weeks?   

    Then I woke up. 

  • PrettyButterfly

    I had a dream were they announced Android Ice Cream Sandwich for all HTC phones, then continued to throw ice cream sandwiches at the crowd, the kind I bought in elementary school. Was such a good dream, I wish my dream comes true.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know about what it is, but I can tell you it’s NOT a Gingerbread update for the Thunderbolt.

  • Beats Audio? That is completely underwhelming.

  • And its confirmed by android central

  • Anonymous

    Beats by Dre?  

  • wes

    AllThingsD is reporting that its a partnership with Beats by Dre…

  • Interstellarmind

    alas, it’ll probably be the apple thing.

    … small glimmer of hope it’ll be about the vigor, though.

    • Its already out its HTC investing 300 mil and partnering with beats audio



  • Christopher Wong

    Nexus Prime

  • They’re either going out of business or starting to make things for Apple (LOL).

  • I know what a dissappointment…beats audio move along nothing to see here

  • Sorto7

    That’s gonna be Honeycomb for HTC Flyer

  • LightningBolt

    Beats audio? A$$ holes. Give me Gingerbread.

  • Negativerxn

    They’re finally coming out of the closet?

  • slappynutz

    They are closing up shop……lol

  • Dasboot1

    They’ve been sold to Nokia….

  • my prediction is the vigor, and then we will have to wait for 5 months and then they will tell us a release date, then 3 more months later it will come out.

  • OnLive or some sort of cloud gaming over LTE?

  • That we can get refunds on any THUNDERBOLTS we throw thru their corp office windows?

  • Magman117

    I heard htc is going to refund all of us suckers who bought the Thunderbolt…..  🙂

  • EricTheRed

    Leaked pictures of Steve Job’s wife sexting with an HTC Droid???

    • Tizatoy84

      LMFAO… too funny….that’s a good one.

  • HTC phones with webOS

  • They’re buying Motorola so that they can unlock all their bootloaders and run the company right?

    • So locked bootloaders means there not running their business right

  • Matthod

    Maybe a fix for all the issues on my Thunderbolt. Maybe that is asking too much.

    • Peter Bartholomul

      I fixed all the problems thunderbolt phones have. its called rooting. If HTC can’t get it done then do it yourself. It’s deff alot easier and quicker then complaining about it.

  • Vigor plz. I want max Ghz.

  • Knightcrusader

    I have a feeling its about the locked bootloaders, that they are going to announce that they are finally launching and talk about how much they LOVE the dev community, yadda, yadda, yadda.

    I am surprised there isn’t news on here yet about the newest leak FW for the Thunderbolt having the unlockable bootloader in it. It’s all over twitter…

  • jimbob

    I’m hoping for the Vigor being out for Black Friday.

  • Jacob910

    Pimp slap the stupid third grader in the face and make everyone happy 😀

    Please let it be the vigor. I have been ready to upgrade for 3 months.

    Some phone to release by the 16 so I can take back my locked d3

  • 11knives

    Was hoping for a Vigor soon, but being I’m on strike at Verizon not sure I’ll have the cash if and when it’s released.

      Good for you guys by the way. UAW worker here

        Thanks! Wish they would try to drum up some support for us on this site.

  • Unpredictable

    Androidcentral updated that it’s a phone event.

    • And this means that it is a phone call-in event. As in a teleconference.

  • HTCDev.com goes live?

    he’s going to announce that HTC will from now on be locking all Bootloaders…. 

  • Hey what time is this party at

    • Anonymous

      I believe I read it’s 11:30 EST.


  • Perhaps that P.O.S. HTC Flyer is getting Gingerbread or Honeycomb or something…

  • Chris Phillips

    as much as i’d like to hear about the vigor, ics, unlocked bootloaders, i’d LOVE to see some good ole’ fashion pimp slappin’.

  • Cameltoe4me2

    How about Gingerbread for TB. or WE suck as a supplier

  • “we will only be updating certain phones to Gingerbread. At this time, the Droid Incredible is not on that list.” 

  • Peter Bartholomul

    I hope the major announcement is the Ice Cream Sandwich update being released this week. Because if they announce official Ice cream sandwich for this week then hopefully most of us should have it by Easter of 2012

    • Only problem is usually google will release it

      • Peter Bartholomul

        yea. But usually HTC and Motorola have something to do with the updates being released on their phones. Google releases the update but then its up to HTC to release the update to their phones

        • Yea but. Would think google would be present since its their baby

  • Carter

    It will be they have agreed to terms with Apple over licensing or something Windows Phone related. Sorry Droid fans.

    Probably more likely ” The HTC Thunderbolt is going EOL”. 

    • Anonymous

      They are replacing all our Thunderbolts with Vigors!

  • To the thunderbolt people they would not announce gingerbread at a major event…gingerbread is just not that major

    • Guest

      ya it is

      • Peter Bartholomul

        no its really not. lol. i havea gingerbread rom on my rooted phone and my friend has official gingerbread on their non rooted phone and i used both. the best feature in gingerbread is the ability to use your front camera with skype and other apps. But even thats not a major announcement.

    I would hope for

    1. Gingerbread for the blunderbolt available via OTA next week.
    2. Official Vigor release to be in Q4.
    3. All current devices will soon be elegible for HTC unlock next week.

    None of these will be announced, but I can dream.
    Ha they will probably announce that the thunderbolt is not receiving gingerbread ever, or its being discontinued to make room for the vigor in September. My guess is something lame. Or even worse the vigor is launching in Europe only, and big red will only get a super watered down, under-powered version with plenty of bloated to spare and some year old processor sometime next summer…

  • Automaddux

    Although I would love to hear an announcement of a new Verizon phone (my contract is up this month), I would much rather hear Peter publicly announce that jobs is nothing more than a bag of douches and then show video of him taking a dump on the hood of Steve’s car.

  • Ben

    I almost want to hope it could be the new nexus. The chances are slim to none though.

  • Gritchu

    Here’s to hoping the big announcement is that the original Droid Inc is getting Gingerbread after all!

    Here is wishful thinking but I could see them announcing an ics phone to come out in sept and compete with the iphone since google said they wanted to get ics out early to go against the iphone 5 launch.

    • That would be cool

  • Bloodangel45

    Maybe its an announcement that gingerbread is finally available for the Thunderbolt lol…wishful thinking right?

  • Practical reality: it’s probably a settlement with Apple.

    Nothing product related would get a surprise press event with less than a day’s warning.  HTC lost at the ITC, so unless it’s willing to stake everything on an appeal of that, it’ll have to pay up (Apple may agree to license some tech too).

    You might complain, but the only other thing I can possibly imagine is a corporate merger, and that wouldn’t be pretty.

    probably more lame crap that i don’t care about, like NFC payments or their own cloud.  heehaw.

    They are moving all their devices into Ice Cream Sandwich. Some devices may skip Gingerbread completely. HTC will be the first mobile manufactorer utilizing Android that has no fragmentation.

  • HTC will use CyanogenMod instead of Sense. You heard it here first.

    Probably their Honeycomb tablet and maybe a new phone like the Vigor.

  • Anonymous

    Hope it’s the Apple option, but it is more likely an announcement on their honeycomb tablet. (by the way, I would rather Gingerbread for my Thunderbolt over any other announcement).

    Ice Cream Sandwich and they are building the next Nexus Phone

  • Jerrod Schultz

    I would love it if your ladder guess came true! Aside from that probably not happening, I know it probably wont happen, but I would love for them to drop a GB release date for the Thunderbolt! OR, at least tell me the TB will be the first to get ICS!! 🙂

  • Anonymous

    Vigor, Puccini, bootloader and HTC Dev stuff. That’s pretty much all that they can say right now.

    Maybe he’s going to make the formal announcement that there will be no official gingerbread for the Incredible.

    • Anonymous

      my thoughts exactly

      • The DInc is the perfect example of how to completely botch a popular product. Massive product shortages and month long delays, shortened advertising cycle, and now failed promises in OS updates. I’d be way more upset with my DInc if it wasn’t so awesome and I couldn’t root it.

        • Anonymous

          When did they promise gb? The phone is over a year old and got various updates you can’t expect the phone to get every update out there. If you are so worried root it and put gb on it.

          • Joe

            Didn’t google say phones are suppose to get 2 major updates?

            No that group they created I don’t think started yet either to insure timely updates for 18 months.

    I hope it’s something hardware related and not related to bootloaders. Could care less about that actually.

      You should be ashamed of yourself. 🙂
