HTC can't let everyone else have all the early April Fools' fun, and they just had to show us a pair of smartgloves of their own.

Unlike Samsung's imaginary smartgloves, HTC's imaginary smartgloves feature an industrial design and Boomsound. And tiny holograms of cats.

Have a look, and be thankful that this only happens once per year.

Is it Wednesday yet?

Woah, HTC clearly don't get April fool's day. It's not about coming up with something random and kooky, but obviously a joke. The whole point is to trick people. A retro glove, poorly shopped with a phone isn't an April fool's day gift HTC.. it looks like it was knocked up by some random dude in a random forum lol. Leave it to Google ;)

Google Posted the Google Maps one at an appropriate time.

April 1, 2014.... IN JAPAN.

The world does not revolve around USA time zones.

anthonok says:

But they are a US based company so they should. You know, just hire they like to keep services and stuff limited to the US must of the time. Surely you've seen people complain about that... So it's only fair we get to complain about SOMETHING for once lol

"But they are a US based company"

With offices all around the world, like in Japan, which this joke was intended for.
