Just minutes after Apple eclipsed the rest of the tech world with its invitation to the iPhone 5 unveiling, HTC sent out invitations to its own event. Taking place Sept. 19 at a venue in New York City, that event will begin at 11 a.m. Eastern.
As for what’s in store, HTC isn’t saying, but the timing offers some clues. Nokia and Microsoft will be hosting an event on Wednesday, September 5 to unveil some of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones (Samsung already showed off the first one last week, the ATIV S). HTC is one of Microsoft’s Windows Phone partners, but hasn’t released a major new device for the platform since the Titan II in the spring.
