HTC One Nabs Gold Award at COMPUTEX 2013 for Design and Innovation

Following its GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications Association) award for 'Best Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet,' HTC has once again proven that it is a global leader in mobile innovation and design. At COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2013, which was organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) in conjunction with iF (International Forum Design), the Taiwanese manufacturer picked up the Gold Medal in Design and Innovation award - the highest honor in the Computex d&i awards. The award was personally presented to HTC by Taiwan President, Ma Ying-jeou.

"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," said by Ben Ho, HTC Chief Marketing Officer. "We will continue to innovate and provide consumers with the highest quality products."

HTC stood out from the total of 254 product entries submitted for consideration, thanks to its extremely sophisticated detailing, which helps distinguish it from the myriad of smartphones available in its very competitive product category.


"The new HTC One is as much as joy to hold and touch, as to use," remarked Ma. "It is certainly the best of this year's entries."

Besides being awarded the GSMA award for 'Best Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet', the HTC One has also been awarded Tech Radar's 'MWC's Best Phone' and 'Best in Show,' as well as Mobile Geek's 'Best Smartphone'.
