[Update: Corrected One S availability information, and added details about One V. Thank you, Nicolas]
The new HTC One series is part of HTC’s strategy to simplify the branding (and naming convention) of all its Android smartphones. Following a very successful showcase at Mobile World Congress 2012 at the end of February, all eyes are now on HTC to announce the release date of its three new One smartphones – the HTC One X, One S, and One V.
Digitimes reported that HTC plans to ship the One series in March, with an initial shipment target of 400,000 units per month. While there’s no specific worldwide release date yet, the company is aiming to have the [...]
As you may know, in August 2011, HTC bought the majority ownership of Beats Electronics, the company that makes the favorite high-end headphones of Dr. Dre, Lady Gaga, and a bunch of other celebrities.

With the Mobile World Congress a mere 10 days away, we’re getting excited to look at the new stuff we’ll be seeing at Barcelona!
One of the things we’re looking forward to is HTC and the devices which will be part of its new series called ‘One’ which was earlier reported by SlashGear. According to them, the HTC Ville will be launched under a different name; which will be the HTC One S.
