Nevertheless, we should wait until the SGS 3 is announced to tell whether this year is a good or bad year for HTC. Currently, the One X is the best Android phone that anyone can get.
Based off all the reviews I've read, it looks like it is the best android and maybe even the best phone out period at this time. Being in the U.S., getting my hands on one is slim. Lucky for me my cousin, who has been a big HTC supporter since the WinMo days, ordered one which should be shipping to him sometime this week. I can't lie I'm jealous that everywhere, but the U.S. get the phones and updates faster then over here. I understand why, but damn is it annoying. You are right the year is a long way from ending, but HTC is off to a great start in 3 and a half months in.
