      You beat me to that one. I was pretty surprised, as well. The only one I see has been closed for a couple of years and the space is still unrented.

    not sure the DNA needs to say it has 1080p considering how many people on here blasted phones for even THINKING of having a 1080p screen.

    I’m not sure why ATT is bothering with LTE when google stated LTE is a bust anyways with Nexus 4 and again, people on here were whining in agreement with mothership Goog.

      LTE is a bust? You’re on crack

        I think he was adding some humor

      ok they could simply mention true hd screen but something about the screen would satisfy lol.

    I actually think not mentioning that the display is full HD 1080p is a big mistake of HTC, this is the one feature that differentiates this device from any competitor. I mean look at Apple, who are the champions of marketing, but are obviously running out of innovation, but Apple even advertised their new headphones. Everything that can set you apart in a positive way must be communicated to the consumer, why else pay for the ad space if your awareness isn’t strong enough to make a mental impact?

      Exactly. They could have said “Retina-killing 1080p display” and showed the iPhone screen shattering. That would have been great. O_o
