If there are HTC fans left in the U.S., they’ll be glad to know that the Taiwanese company is launching a new early access program called HTC Preview. HTC Preview will be accessible to all who would like to participate and offers early access to apps and devices engineered and developed by HTC themselves.
After a failed year in the smartphone industry, HTC is struggling to satisfy the fanbase it still has. The launch of the HTC One A9 attracted a lot of negative opinions and accusations of the company copying other manufacturer’s design elements. The HTC Preview comes in support of originality, seeing as it will provide access to exclusive content and devices before those are made available to the consumer. With the program, HTC might try and collect more feedback and keep users more engaged with the brand, so that the company’s smartphone business can move on in a better direction.
Registration has already been opened for HTC preview, so if you feel like taking advantage of the opportunity, you can go ahead and sign up through the new platform. The entire process takes a couple of minutes and you’ll have to answer some questions about your daily smartphone habits, regardless of the brand of your current smartphone. Those who are already HTC device owners will be asked for their IMEI number and carrier information to the purpose of receiving the HTC Preview exclusive software OTA.
Much like programs that Google, Motorola and Microsoft has, the HTC Preview program aims to bring in more average users to the development process and engage the user community in providing feedback. Those who sign up for HTC Preview will even get the chance to test unreleased smartphones and other future HTC gadgets, but they will be bound by confidentiality agreements so they won’t be able to talk about what happens within the app, unless they’re daredevils.
