HTC Unveils Limited Edition Captain America S.H.I.E.L.D. One (M8)

One M8 SHIELD

Instead of a perfectly-placed Iron Man promotion (the phone is metal and RDJ is a paid spokesperson), HTC has decided to instead go a different route, teaming up the folks behind the new Captain America movie to produce a special limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. One (M8) smartphone.

The One (M8) comes with a special S.H.I.E.L.D. logo along its backside, and appears to come packed with a few Captain America wallpapers. But don’t worry, the wallpapers can be yours too, if you so choose.

If this S.H.I.E.L.D. One (M8) interests you, HTC is giving one away through a special promotion, in which folks need to simply send in a “super selfie.” Make yourself look like a hero of sorts, and if it’s awesome enough, you might win yourself a very limited edition phone.

I still think an Iron Man edition One (M8) would have been much sweeter. Regardless, it doesn’t appear that this device will be on sale to the general public, so Super Selfies might be your only hope at getting one.

    Who would that on your phone . looks like a little kid phone

  • Bigwavedave25

    I agree with their decision (timing aside), metallic gray works well for a “shield” color and in the end it is subtle. A red and yellow phone… I sure wouldn’t want to be seen walking around with one.

    Seriously, what the hell is up with that wallpaper?

    • steveliv

      That is not wallpaper but an example of a “super-selfie” that you would need to submit to win the phone.

      • Smeckle

        I totally missed the third paragraph lol

  • Jprime

    Hope it costs extra

    Do marketing people live in glass houses with mermaids?
    I cant remember the last idea that made any sense to an actual human

  • Cael

    HTC is so desperate

      It’s not their fault if the general consumer prefers crap build materials/fit and finish versus Pristine quality materials and build, all while still paying more for said crap. lol Oh well…

    Nick Fury had an m7 in the movie if I remember correctly. Anyways yeah a iron man edition would of been better with the red and rose gold!

    Their new logo

  • Matt G

    Ohh I get it, let’s release a super hero version before we release any other colors people might want. I like their strategy. They really know their market

    HAIL HYDRA!

  • Justin Tierney

    That’s a bigger logo then Verizon would put on! No way Ho Say

  • NorCalGuy

    Just go ahead and put this one next to the R2 D2

  • Jonathan

    Sort of interesting considering they used all HTC phones in the movie but I only noticed 1 M8

  • Brian Trahan

    Yet another missed opportunity. Come on HTC you have made almost every android phone I’ve owned, quit trying to blow your toes off by shooting yourself in the foot repeatedly.

  • a) youth.in.asia

    Obviously HTC went with the most popular Marvel superhero…

  • Gato Mafioso

    So they make a phone with a logo for an organization that has fallen apart…hail hydra!

    Edit: spoiler alert?

    • The Narrator

      Eh, Bucky Barnes is Winter Soldier….doh! It’s all known

    • Maxim∑

      my life is now ruined

    • michael arazan

      Would of preferred an Agent Coulson phone than Cap

  • paul_cus

    Uh…

  • Justin Everett

    If there is a Verizon version i know my wife will want one.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I’m sure the wife would appreciate it more if you just did it yourself. DIY Project

      • Justin Everett

        If the cover came off normally i could easily see myself etching it in myself, but since it doesn’t i’d be hesitant to do that.

          Just buy a vinyl sticker, nearly as good.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Speaking of giveaways…. What you got in your pocket over there Tim?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    The lameness is strong in this one.

    • GOOGLE_WALL_E.T.

      especially considering almost unnoticeable (pathetic) difference between this AND the regular one-m8-the-new-one-mini-not-m7.

      #FACEPALM. #marketing.

    I hope that’s not one of the wallpapers…

    GREAT TIMING! Just as Captain America is moving out of the theaters and Spiderman is moving in.

    WHAT IS THIS COMPANY DOING!?!?!?!?!?!

    • Bob G

      It’s even funnier when you’ve already seen the movie and realize that this is supposed to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. tie in. smh, double facepalm, all apply.

      • Guest

        Basically HTC is saying hail hydra!!
