Not bad! HTC is promising 'Big Things Ahead', in a new teaser video that hints thecould well be true -- and that Robert Downey Jr might be the one to unveil the giganto-blower to the world.
The video features a military-looking helicopter landing in a car park. A suspiciously chic tousle-haired exec clambers out and high-fives a chap who's just pocketed an Jon Polito. So what's in the briefcase, Mr Stark?-- and who my sharp-eyed colleague Rich Trenholm points out is Coen brothers regular
Entitled 'Big Things Ahead', it seems HTC has a launch coming up -- although it hasn't yet sent out invites -- and if the rumour mill is anywhere near the mark, it's going to be the HTC One Max.
A much bigger version of the popular One, the Max is said to boast a whopping great 5.9-inch Full HD screen and a new, more powerful, Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor. It wasjust yesterday.

HTC also seems to be trying out new slogans based on its corporate abbreviation. 'Here's To Change' says the video embedded above, while a shorter version of the ad posted on Vine reckons HTC stands for 'Happy Telephone Company'. I really like that, but maybe not as much as what it actually stands for: High Tech Computer, which is amazingly retro.
What do you think HTC should stand for? Do you think Iron Man would rock a massive HTC One? Go wild in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
Update: Added reference to Jon Polito. Thanks Rich!
