HTC’s clearly not wasting any opportunity to undermine Samsung, especially during their Times Square takeover with some guerrilla marketing tactics. While I stood in line and watched hired persons sporting HTC One gear pass out bottled water and hot chocolate, HTC had the One floating around Times Square just a few feet from Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 setup. Is this trolling or guerrilla marketing genius?
