I had a customer with a heavy accent call me asking about this. He just couldn't grasp that The One, the One S, and the at&t phone the One X, were different devices.

What will their phone names be like in a few years? The One XXVC+- Type R? Too much to remember for a customer.

So the One X is the predecessor to the One.

I can't blame a marketing guru for this stupid decision because being utterly clueless seems to be a hallmark of a successful marketing executive, but somewhere in that chain of command in HTC there ought to have been someone WITH A CLUE who would have noticed that this completely violates decades of precedence established for the naming of technological devices.

I hope this hurts HTC's sales of this device substantially. I am so sick of stupidity like this in the world. I think this is even worse than GM's decision to sell the Chevy Nova in spanish-speaking countries ("Nova" sounds like "No va" in espanol which means "it does not go") It's not as funny as GM's bad decision, but I thin...
