There are many more power users running Android than other, more brand-loyal “Sheeple” platforms. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that the Android community is quite familiar with the awesomeness that is Reddit. A while ago, we talked a bit about a Reddit AMA session held by the awesome folks behind the popular Paranoid Android ROM. Now, there’s another Reddit AMA that may be of interest to you, and it’s with the HTC Product Team.
During the AMA session, various Redditors asked a wide variety of questions including update timing and availability, the foundations of Sense UI’s framework, and even the design inspiration behind various products like the HTC One and One X and why “the need/want for removable battery is continually decreasing.” And through HTC’s responses, we learned that HTC plans on righting its wrongs with the HTC One X by supporting the current devices for two years of updates and possibly updating at least certain variants of the One X, and why certain design and product decisions were made. Unfortunately despite being asked explicitely, there is no official word regarding an HTC-made Nexus device.
To check out the whole AMA, you should make your way over to Reddit and read the whole Q&A thread. It’s definitely worth your time if you’re an HTC fan.
