Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

Earlier this year, both HTC and Samsung stated in reports that it will be slimming down its product lines in order to reduce expenses, concentrate on higher quality and to lessen the effects of diluting similar product lines. Samsung has hinted that the Galaxy S lll will be launched simultaneously in many markets, and would eliminate the U.S. carriers from individual looks and independent features. Now HTC has introduced its "One" (several discussions are taking place on individual phones already) brand which appear to cover the entry, mid and high level markets.
The new "One" phones will be equipped with Android 4.0, Beats Audio and a "toned down" Sense UI. This new Sense will be more Android like and less resourse intensive. It appears like HTC was listening to customer complaints of Sense UI taking too much memory and interfering with performance.
HTC appears it has taken its cues from Samsung and its success from the GSll series of devices that boosted Samsung's bottom line. HTC is hoping that this new strategy and new Ice Cream Sandwich devices will help HTC climb back towards the top spot and return to a position of reporting record profits.
