It is said that winning the award is a very prideful moment for HTC, so much so that the Android-powered HTC One is now being referred to as the “Pride of Taiwan.” And in case you are having any doubts about the title’s high status in the mobile industry, you should know that Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou himself was the one who presented the award to HTC.
“For the new HTC One to win yet another international award, it demonstrates how HTC’s proven design capabilities, both in product design and user experience, is bringing a new perspective to the industry. We will continue to innovate and provide consumers with the highest quality products.”
To win the award, the HTC One had to compete — in terms of design and innovation — against 254 other product entries from dozens of other mobile computing device companies. In the end, as they say, there can be only one. And the HTC One turned out to be that one which is worthy of receiving the Gold award over everything else.
