Do you know who's overflowing with excitement for the not-yet-official HTC M7 smartphone? None other than HTC CEO Peter Chou, of course.
A video from HTC's year-end party shows the company's head honcho on stage playing with the M7, and even snapping photos of the crowd. Chou can be seen rallying a team of employees with a battle cry.
During the video, Chou chants "HTC" a few times, followed by a couple of rounds of "M7," and finally capped off with screams of "HTC One!"
The grainy video seemingly confirms recent rumors of two color options for the anticipated flagship device; Chou holds both a silver and black version of the handset suspected to be the M7. Strangely, the phones have what appear to be a pair of horizontal lines across the back.
HTC has scheduled a pair of press events for February 19 where it is expected that the M7 will take center stage. CNET will be in attendance and will provide an early impressions of the new smartphone.
I recently penned an open letter to HTC where I suggested that the company scream from the rooftops about the new device. Perhaps the CEO has taken my advice.
