HTC today announced details of the U.S. marketing campaign for its One flagship phone. A major component will be three different kinds of pop-up locations in 11 major markets. HTC BoomSound Lounges open today in major plazas of New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. The lounges let consumers experience the One's BoomSound speakers in person, and will host intimate concerts with artists such as Pharrell and Grouplove. Next week, the company will open pop-up stores in major malls in eight cities. The stores consist of a "large, playful, interactive exhibit" that will showcase BlinkFeed, Zoe, and Sense TV. In addition, the company will partner with movie theaters, offering demos of the One in the lobby. The One is available for pre-order today from AT&T and Sprint, shipping April 19th. T-Mobile will offer it "later this spring."

Bigger lens for more light collection, good sensor for pic digitization. Bingo, we have nice photos.

Why they wen...
I think it's more so the quality of the lens than megapixels that plays a role in the quality of a pic.
A 1920 x 1080 image would have 2,073,600 pixels. And that's as good as HD currently gets, unless you're into high-end gaming or use big resolutions in a professional environment. But for the run of the mill consumer, 1080p is it. And since your photog...
The pictures look great in the review here.. ... »

Dunno want pics you were looking at.

Having higher pixels doesn't equal better pictures. The 4MP camera on the One is quite nice and h...
