With 2014 just behind us and CE just days away, it’s no small claim to say that the tech world is waiting for the event with eager eyes. HTC is no stranger to making headlines, and if Jeff Gordon, the company’s Senior Global Online Communication Manager has anything to say (which he does), the year-at-large might be something special.
In a series of Tweets today, Gordon minced no words in claiming that 2015 will see the best product line-up in the company’s history, using such phrases as “blow your mind” and promising “some huge surprises.” Take a look:
HTC's 2015 roadmap will be our best ever–with some huge surprises that will blow you away. ;)

It’s important to note that Mr. Gordon didn’t confirm anything specific for CES 2015, though he did make reference to it by noting many companies make product announcements on the 5th, even though the show doesn’t actually open until the 6th.
There have been many rumors and purported leaks circulating around the Internet recently, including continuous mentioning of the HTC Hima, which is largely believed to be the follow-up to last year’s One M8, a device that not only turned heads, but actually made the jump over to Windows Phone as well, perhaps a first for the mobile market.
HTC is also stated to release a sequel to its RE handheld recording device, though it’s unknown if the 2015 variant will feature the same periscope-esque inspiration. In the tablet world, there has been talk of the Taiwanese company offering a non-Nexus “Nexus 9”, which could mean a similar speced piece of hardware with HTC’s signature premium build quality.
The most solid piece of evidence about something interesting coming from HTC next week is this teaser for an upcoming Desire phone.
As Gordon also reminded his followers that HTC is back in (the) black, this year will be a very important one to determine how long the balance sheet remains so. What kind of surprises would you like to see from HTC this year?
