Cell Phone Future

HTC's brand-new flagship smartphone, the HTC One, is a gorgeous piece of all-aluminum smartphone machinery by any standards. CNET's Brian Bennett went hands-on with the Android Jelly Bean phone before today's launch event.
With dual audio speakers, a new Beats Audio feature in BoomSound, and a rebooted version of the HTC Sense interface layer that includes a new element called Blink, and an IR blaster to act as a TV remote, the HTC One certainly packs some interesting extras.
HTC's flagship device should appear in the U.S. in March for T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint. It'll cost $199.99 for the 32GB version and $299.99 for the 64GB version.
Compelling? Yes. But how does the HTC One compare to the hottest competition? Check out our chart below for the spec-in-spec lineup against the HTC Droid DNA, the BlackBerry Z10, and the iPhone 5, and be sure to read Brian's hands-on impressions for more.
We'll have photos and video coming up, as soon as we can get them, and will update this chart with more specs as they're announced.
