Gold is the new black: leaked HTC One pics hint at new gold color

Leaked images show a new gold-colored smartphone from HTC.

Fresh off of its introduction of a sadder shade of phone, a leaked photo hints that HTC may soon introduce a gold-colored version of its top-shelf HTC One.

The images leaked on Weibo, China's Twitter-like microblogging site and highlighted by Engadget) show a dissembled HTC One with a noticeable champagne-like casing. Sound familiar?

According to the Engadget post, the image comes courtesy of the same leaker who first posted leaked images of what was later confirmed to be the "vivid blue" HTC One.

The image has a time stamp of August 12, which means the gold One--if it is indeed legit--has been in the works for some time, and is not a mere reaction to the unveiling of that other gold colored phone you may have heard about. (Of course, the rumors of the gold version of the gold iPhone have been around since mid-August.)

If the gold One comes to market, it would give users the options of aluminum, black, vivid blue, and red.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
