Does this "Mini" has MP3 player & wifi internet?
I feel this is one of the best product innovation in 2013. Apple should have come out this product before HTC did!

All I'm saying, is that let's have a feel of it and therefore we can criticize it... it's so childish to criticize something we haven't used but saw it. However, anything new or change it is not easy to be accepted get used of it...
we cannot use same thing all the time, someone needs to develop a new thing. I'm too shocked by this mini remote but let's have a feel of it first..

When I read the news I thought they developed a remote for their 7" tablet, that would be somewhat OK.
But then I found out it's for their smartphone... FAIL!

Lol Android innovation at its best. Hilarious. Hopefully Samsung comes out with a phone and a remote and another remote to control the remote.

People didn't just make comments. They read and found out that it was not so creative. And remember, people want new innovation, but not dumb innovation!

Let the new technology come to surface...what's wrong with something new? you guys haven't seen neither touched it but amply criticizing it. constructive criticism are good if only are done experientially. I'm eager to see how it works. what will you guys say,if many companies show interest to that which was started by HTC? HTC does always come up with new technology, thats why I'm not appalled.keep up the good work...HTC for life no matter what

Let me see if I got it right.... smartphones have become so huge we now have to use a smaller remote for them?!?!?!?!
Really? How dumb is that?
The design is great, would love to have a telephone with this looks at my house or maybe as a stylish low price, simple mobile like those ones for seniors, but as a remote? this is a joke... maybe Apple could sell them lol

Hahaha! While the other guys try their best to push screens all the way to the edges and thinning down the phones (Samsung even making a flexible OLED to wrap around/fold/roll the screen in your pocket), HTC just decides, "Hey, let's carry another device in the other pocket!"

If it has strong VIBRATE, maybe there's a market for this?!!
