As a proud Android user since its humble beginnings, the HTC G1/Dream was my first introduction to Google’s mobile OS. That being said, I have fond memories of my time spent with HTC devices, ranging from the G1, to the HTC EVO 4G, HTC Arrive (I experimented briefly with Windows Phone in my college days), HTC EVO 3D, before finally settling down with the HTC One.
Today, the company released a video on YouTube showcasing their history of wireless innovation, spanning from the first touch-based handheld devices in 1998, all the way to the masterpiece that is the HTC One in 2013. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t tug on my heart strings just a little. While there’s never been such a thing as the perfect smartphone, I can’t imagine a world — or even Android — without HTC. Sit back and watch. For HTC fans, you might wanna bring a tissue.
