HTC wants U in May. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer is set to reveal a new phone with what looks like an intriguing new way of controlling it.
On Thursday, HTC sent an invitation for a 16 May event that will span Taipei, New York and London. The tagline reads "Squeeze for the Brilliant U", and an accompanying video shows a hand squeezing the edge of the device. That suggests the new phone will feature some kind of pressure-sensitive interface along the edge that you control by squeezing or swiping.
