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?

Thoughts?

    I just want Gingerbread for my Thunderbolt, is that too much to ask?

    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…

    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.

    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.

    VIGOR! VIGOR!

    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.

    Really hope its announcing a release date for the Vigor.

  • htc rep

    I don’t know if this is true or not, but I’ve heard that HTC will move their company oversass and that they wont sell anymore HTC phones to the States…

  • Anonymous

    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!! :-)

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

  • Anonymous

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

      my thoughts exactly

      • http://twitter.com/CarlTres Carl Brown

        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.

          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?

          • Anonymous

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

  • DAN

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

      You should be ashamed of yourself. :-)

    Official Gingerbread for my Thunderbolt. Official Gingerbread for my Thunderbolt. 

    I know I could root, but I have had issues with doing it wrong on past devices so would rather not break it….

    At this point the only “major” news I’d like to hear come out of HTC is a settlement with Apple.  So we can move on with our endless internet scrolling in peace…

    i wish htc would interrupt an apple press conference with stone cold steve austin entrance music, take the mic from steve jobs and stun him

      Or with The Rock’s entrance music, and then tells Steve, The Rock will take you down Know Your Role Boulevard which is on the corner of Jabroni Drive and check you directly into the Smackdown Hotel!
