After a thorough drubbing at the hands of Apple and Samsung last year, HTC's back with its latest take on a flagship smartphone. The HTC One ($TBA) is the result, blending features of both the iPhone and the Galaxy series into a single, interesting handset. It features an aluminum unibody design with chamfered edges — sound familiar? — a 4.7" 1080p screen, a 4-megapixel rear-facing camera, dubbed Zoe, that promises larger individual pixels and therefore better low-light performance, dual front-facing speakers, LTE networking, a totally re-imagined Sense skin atop Android Jelly Bean, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, NFC, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, and 32 or 64GB of onboard storage. Coming soon to a carrier near you.
Is it an iPhone- or Galaxy-killer? No, probably not — but if you're still clinging to your 9900 like a shipwreck survivor to a piece of snapped-off wood, the Blackberry Z10 ($200) is surely a sight for sore eyes. Powered by the all-new, gesture-filled BlackBerry 10 OS, the Z10 features 2-megapixel front and 8-megapixel rear cameras, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, fast LTE networking, NFC support, and a 1,280 x 768, 4.2-inch display. Assuming you're still in, you'll finally be able to use that upgrade in April.
