HTC has released a cryptic teaser on their Facebook page for a device to be announced tomorrow. It really doesn't say much, and it's anybody's guess what 10:08 means; presumably that's the time we'll have to tune in to HTC's various channels to see what's up. 

We've heard of at least two potential devices that HTC could be introducing. There's the One X 5, which is looking more real than ever at this point, and there's the considerably murkier Droid Incredible X, with what could be a 1080p-resolution display (that that would fit in pretty nicely with the 10:08 on the clock, wouldn't it?). Of course, there's also the very real possibility that there's nothing Android going on here at all, and that HTC will in fact be announcing a Windows Phone instead.

That clock font sure looks Windows Phoney to me, but what do you guys think? What kind of Android devices is HTC going to announce tomorrow? Do you think they'd lump in a Windows Phone on the side?

HTC teases new device to be announced tomorrow


One X5 to challenge Samsung Galaxy Note 2.. and Windows 8 phone or tablet..

im hoping to see a OneX+ or something to do with the One X besides a 5inch device

i hope they don't do what they did before, release waaay too many phones and go no where

That time is the time all HTC phone/tablets have in their promo shots.

Give the placement, I would go with tablet rather than phone, but I've never see a Windows Phone 8.

Well roman numeral for 10 is X and 8 could be windows phone 8. Maybe it'll be called the HTC X8? Just a guess. I feel like it's too soon to release a 1080p super phone. Sounds too out-of-nowhere considering the current competition.

10 stands for how many times Apple will sue regarding this phone...and 8 stands for how many weeks it will be stuck in US Customs.

wait wait wait wait wait. has everyone failed to see the big 19.9??? thats the mystery. what does 19.9 mean???????????

(insert huge sarcastic smiley here)

but that doesnt make sense????

7/9/13 OMG im dying what does it all mean?????


7+9+13=29 deduct 10 (because the clock shows 10) = 19!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i dont get it?

10:08 is always used by HTC bc on old digital clocks it is the time that displays the most dots. Think about it.

edit: not just old digital clocks, but you get it.

Why wouldn't they?
Android is already packed-full with competition.
And while HTC is the first vendor came out with Nexus-Google name, Samsung did it twice and now on Asus.
They were great on Windows Mobile and I believe they should also stick to Windows Phone.
Off course I want to see more device from them. But if they don't have the right 'ammo' to create better Android experiences from smartphones and tablets, they better change direction.

Htc uses he time 10:08 when it displays a time, the reason that I've heard for this is tht 10:08 is the time that uses the maximum number of pixels

Or maybe its a 10 inch windows 8 device... ala 10:08 because the clock looks a little windows style to me.... #WhatDoIWin?? Lol

Why are people expecting that HTC might announce anything other than Windows Phone 8 devices at an event that has been known for weeks to be a Windows Phone event? Ten seconds worth of internet searching could have removed any "mystery" for android users.....

It's a throwback to how watches with actual hands are displayed in ads. When the time reads, "10:08" it creates a kind of smiley face on the watch face.

Would be awesome if it is 1080p and runs both windows and Android. Though I doubt it and I don't remember if 1080 is supported in WinPhone8; thinking it topped out at 1280x800.

That kinda looks like a Windows Device, since that clock font resembles Microsoft's Segue font

personally, Im hoping for a Windows Phone devices !!!
A WP8 One X-ish phone would be awesome !

10:08 doesn't mean anything. Anyone who is into watches knows that 10:08 is the time shown on a clock In advertisements. It is said to be aesthetically pleasing whether digital or analog.

Anyway it looks like a tablet to me.

Clearly, a Windows Phone event exclusively. I love my EVO LTE but the stunning hardware is paired with what can be best described as utilitarian software.
