HTC Sends Invites for February 19th Event, Likely for M7 Launch
Android Guys

HTC has sent invites for a February 19th press event in New York City, suggesting they'll show off "what's next." No other details were provided by the Taiwanese smartphone vendor but it's expected to be the upcoming flagship HTC M7 Android device. It has been widely reported that the M7 would be offered Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, which would explain the U.S. event. HTC's new handset has been touted to feature several "industry-first" specs and would be the first to feature HTC Sense 5.0, which offers an easier to use UI, a redesigned lock-screen and HTC apps.
