Earlier this week I was lucky enough to get hands on with the three new ‘One Series’ devices HTC have just officially announced at Mobile World Congress. Sticking to the unibody design these new additions are beautifully crafted and feel wonderful in the hand. With three different sized screens HTC now have Ice Cream Sandwich phones to suit everyone’s needs.
