HTC: Quick on the troll, perhaps too quick

Or: Lessons in speaking before you know all the details #TweetersRemorse

In the midst of today's Samsung Galaxy S5 announcements at MWC (right around when Samsung was talking about the Gear 2 and Gear Fit), HTC decided to fire a social media shot across Samsung's bow. You might call it an attempt at trolling, and for about half an hour it was a pretty successful troll:

Buyer's remorse: Coming soon to S5 owners. March 25 #HTCOneUp

There's just one problem: 30 minutes after HTC sent out that cheeky tweet, Samsung unveiled the release date for the Samsung Galaxy S5: April 11. Two weeks after the new HTC One is due to be unveiled. Sometimes it pays to bite your tongue for a few minutes and see how things play out.
