Battle cry: HTC's CEO leads the 'M7' chant
HTC's CEO Peter Chou is anything but "quietly" brilliant as he leads a chant celebrating the unannounced M7 flagship phone.
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.
The leakedand we've seen thus far do not show these lines, so maybe there's some serious 11th-hour work from Team M7.
HTC has scheduled a pair of press events forwhere 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 anwhere I suggested that the company scream from the rooftops about the new device. Perhaps the CEO has taken my advice.
