Shelly Palmer Radio Report – February 20, 2013

Look out, Apple and Samsung. There’s a new horse in the smartphone race. HTC just unveiled the HTC One, the company’s new flagship phone. When you turn on the HTC One, you’re brought to BlinkFeed, which shows stories, pictures and videos from the sources you care most about. Can’t live without Twitter, Facebook or Flickr? Add those streams into BlinkFeed and you’re more connected than ever. The One has a gorgeous 4.7 inch 1080p screen with 50 percent more pixels per inch than the iPhone 5. This means the One’s images are more beautiful and eye-popping than on the iPhone. Speaking of gorgeous images, HTC says that the 4-Ultrapixel HTC Zoe Camera is better than other companies’ 8-megapixel cameras? Why? UltraPixels are really big pixels. Because they are larger, HTC insists that Ultrapixels will produce a superior image in low light conditions. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will all have the One for sale starting in March. It’s Ultrapixels vs. Megapixels. Apple? Samsung? Game on!
