Is it just me, or do the rumoured pics of the new HTC One look rather like the BlackBerry Z10? Which in turn obviously looks rather like the iPhone 5... I know it's not a new premise - I recall the odd court case... - but these two look particularly similar.g

We've just been taking a look at the new Sony Xperia Z (review incoming!)... much more angular.

HTC One is confirmed. Yes, it does look like an exact replica of the Blackberry.

HTC so near - and yet so far (once again)

 

Just like last year the failure to add that little feature for an extra £5 is going to cost them millions of lost sales.

Add an SDXC slot to the phone and it would have been a clear winner.

RE: HTC One (new flagship)

Despite the reviews and its allegedly good SQ, this is the main reason  didn't even consider it, 26Gb which would inevitably be around 20Gb once you've filled it with apps, is not enough space for a decent number of FLAC CDA + Hi-Res  / Spotify HQ files on it. I'm still baffled why all of the phone manufacturers are obsessed with trying to bundle a high quality camera with a phone, not one of them has specifcally tred to market a high quality DAP with a phone built in. Crikey, offer it bundled with some Dr Dre Beats phones and there would be a stampede.
