Live: HTC Rezound Announcement in NYC [Ended]

HTC-Rezound

The HTC and Beats by Dre event will be kicking off within the hour in NYC, and our man Dan is on the scene to take it all in. We are fully expecting this to be the unveiling of the Rezound along with a release date of November 10 (or close to it). The invite itself doesn’t give many clues, but it’s pretty obvious at this point that one of HTC’s last big releases of the year is going to be this phone on Verizon.

Jump into the live blog after the break!

    Im sorry but the G-Nex Fanboyism is rediculous on this site sometimes. people keep on asking “why get this instead of the Nexusn your crazy! G-NEX FTW!!!”, and me as a consumer and someone who sells phones… I can say that without a shadow of a doubt that ALL these phones meet the needs of alot of different people. a small business owner doesnt need to care about a friggin unlocked bootloader! or shutter speed, or 5 vs. 8 mp camera. They just need something that works when they want it too.

    Razr, taping into the busness minded consumer like no other android phone is even trying to gain market share for… will sell the most (its gonna be the new blackberry trust me)

    Rezound, idk about u… but i use my phone as an mp3 player more then i make phone calls. And “dre BEATS” sells itself (never owned a pair but used em… and beleive the hype, yes over priced, but sound damn good)

    Galaxy Nexus, for the guy for me, who wants the best (but doesnt care about unlocked bootloaders), amazing phone. but i wouldnt wanna see everyone with the damn phone.

    With my G-Nex, i would be equally excited to tool around with my best friends rezound, and look at how thin (and fuctinal) the Razr’s gonna be. One thing is for certain… the only these phones 1+ GHZ processor running, 1 Gig ram multi-tasking beast are, are just a big pile of win. Makes me look at overpriced VZW with pride again. We are at a great time to be an android owner (and yes even a fanboy).

    Really Its very nice…Android is the good OS…Most of the people will prefer this OS only ..It showing best results..

  • Interstellarmind

    camera’s got me intrigued on the rezound. but the chip may suck compared to G-nex’s. plan of action? order the rezound, pre-order the g-nex… return the rezound if the g-nex beats it.

    • James Adam

      do you have to return the earbuds when you return the phone?

    Noticing a trend here: the best phones are being given the dumbest names. Nexus Prime becomes Galaxy Nexus (which still doesn’t make much sense to me), Vigor becomes Rezound, Spyder becomes RAZR.

    Think we need a new poll: Which is the dumbest name (though I think we all know which will win)?

      Thank you! Not enough people around here seem to realize how crappy and overpriced Beats is. All they do is crank up the bass. It’s far from “premium”.

  • Jak_341

    Nothing to see here. Move along. Just get the GNex. The GNex simply destroys any phone out there or coming out.

      Beats by Dre is a great reason to NOT get the rezound, thanks though.

      Use of a double negative means that you do care. *facepalm*

      • Mr Manville

        Actually. he’s saying that he CAN care enough. as in, its not worthy of caring more that a certain amount. There is a limit to how much he cares. This is correct. and I hate you.

    Assume this: Rezound with ICS or GNex. Who wins?

    The rezound it is looking pretty nice, but the battery life will be a disaster on this device.

    • Dbarden31

      I personally think the RAZR will have the best battery out of the three. If it does and the radios and gps are great then it’s the phone I’m gettin. Although i’d love to have that stock experience but idk about Samsungs hardware.

      • Anonymous

        I agree with you. Samsung just have good display and camera other than that they are not good at all. I read that Moto is using an advanced battery and advanced let in the razor. I feel the only thing that the razor needs is ICS and we will have it by January so it is not a big deal. The battle to be the best second device of the year it is between the nexus and htc.

  • Anonymous

    If this launches the 14 what are all the conspiratists going to say since it is in the 14 day window of razr and people may return it and that’s why nexus won’t launch sooner?

    • James Adam

      I think most people will purchase the device and be happy. Only we will test all three if they release 10 14 17 lol

      • Anonymous

        I know but people kept saying that’s why the nexus wasn’t being released was because of being in the return window. Most people won’t return a phone its just the ones who feel they must have latest that will.

        • Dbarden31

          Will VZW actually let you return and test all 3?

          • Anonymous

            You get one return so you could test out 2 not all 3. Could always wait and just play with them in store and then decide.

        I agree, the cost of success I guess

        • Anonymous

          I agree as well, Maybe it’s due to Verizon not having a device like the OG or Nexus in sometime :)  Finally the Nexus comes out and people are giddy.

            Yeah, tensions are high, patience levels are at critical lows, its perfectly understandable.  Yet, some comments that pop up once in while make you sit back and think; “Are you really that childish?”

          • Anonymous

            Exactly, this Dude AngelFace77 has used racist slurs on here in the past and present he needs to be banned. I understand the rest of the comments on here and the U_Bro thing which is over used and funny at times. thats nothing, but the constant racist stuff is uncalled for.

            This is a great site with great members and it all it takes is one to mess up a site.

    • John

      ya but it’s only going to last 2-3 more weeks. after that it’s over.

      Because it’s a REAL phone to actually be excited about. Not a begginer, childish, simpleton, unskilled user, phone like the one you love…..

    Beats by HTC! With the Razr coming out and the G-Nex on the Horizon, I dont think this phone can compete. A pair of nice headphones arent going to persuade me to buy this phone. Plus! they havent changed their form factor in the last 30 handsets!

    • boo Jay

      If you think HTC hasn’t changed their form factor, you’re REALLY going to hate the iphone.

      • Anonymous

        havent had an iphone since 07. dont plan on going back anytime soon.

  • http://twitter.com/TheDilge Tim Dilger

    Will be the phone to have if you absolutely need a micro-sd and a removeable battery and if you don’t mind not having ICS for a while.  GNEX 4 life!

    • Chuck

      If the Nexus wasn’t coming to Verizon I’d probably be getting the Rezound.  

      • http://twitter.com/TheDilge Tim Dilger

        Same here.  Btw, Vigor was a pretty sweet name, bad move changing it to Rezound imo.

      why would HTC announce a samsung device’s RELEASE DATE!?  seriously?!  god damn, gnex people ARE worse than iphone fanboys at this point.

    Yeah lets go ahead and get this out of the way so everyone can move on to the razr and nexus.

      Anyone who considers the RAZR to be better than this needs to seriously explain their stance to me. It’s one thing to want a RAZR or Rezound over the Nexus, I guess, but RAZR is looking worse and worse and worse every day.

      • Anonymous

        Depends on what the consumer is looking for.  What makes it “worse and worse and worse” for you?

        • Anonymous

          Non-HD screen, non-removable battery, silly name, ugly Moto hump (this point is subjective, merely my personal opinion), physical buttons, no ICS at launch, shitty motoblur, locked/encrypted bootloader.

          That’s just off the top of my head. Oh, and it doesn’t have near-instant shutter speed like the G-Nex and now Rezound appear to.

          I just see no reason to prefer this over the Nexus or Rezound, unless you really need a bulletproof phone or consider the concepts of charging often/carrying an extra battery to be blasphemy.

          • OG Droid

            I’m getting the nexus; I was just trying to include most of the people that come to this site. Most of the comments I’ve seen are for the nexus or razr. But their are some that want the rezound. Each his own though. 

          • Anonymous

            Okay, it’s clear that an HD screen, a removable battery, non-physical buttons, no manufacture user interface and an unlocked bootloader are all key requirements for you in your purchasing a phone.  Sounds like the Nexus is the phone for you out of all the three.

            Would it surprise you that to some people, all of those key specs I just mentioned aren’t requirements in purchasing a new phone?  They may be “nice to haves” or “I don’t necessarily like them, but whatever” to some people.  The sturdy metal design might also be a selling point for the Razr.  It was for me, since I always drop my phone.  Plus, it’s getting ICS soon, not out of the box, but not too far off into the future.  I for one, like the design of the phone, and would rather have ICS in the Razr’s shell than in the Nexus’

          • Anonymous

            Pretty sure most would want the HD screen, and enough blogs and websites and news sources in general have bashed Moto’s craptastic UI enough that people realize it’s awful. You’re right on the other points though.

          • Murphy751

             Say what u will about motoblur, but its full of totally cool stuff that none of the others have, like the gallery, which includes online stuff as well if you want including latest videos from youtube subscriptions, the ability to comment on them, your friends photos which you can also comment on, Facebook integration, etc… Its not the prettiest UI, but I think its the best. Im a fan of sense too, but in the morning when I watch the news and stuff I find myself using my Photon (in airplane mode over wifi since I don’t have sprint no more lol). The battery lasts quite longer than on my rezound too. On my Rezound and the BIONIC that I traded back for it, I always keep it on 3G because 4G is a battery drain so bad I just cant see turning it on unless Im actually watching netflix or something.

             Maybe in another 5 years they will work the bugs out in all these damn phones too. Just about every high end phone has major issues! Ive tried them all in the last 6 months and am disgusted with every manufacturer…

            Glossing over the strange timing of this reply, I’ll say that none of those features appeal to me. If I want to watch Youtube I’ll use its app, and likewise with facebook. I’m not really the kind of person who spends a lot of time looking at others’ photos, anyway. The ICS gallery gets the job done well for me, and its photo editing features are a nice touch. It’s clear we have different priorities, so whatever. Diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks.
