Summary: The HTC Surround, released on AT&T, on November 8th, 2010, is a curious addition to a highly competitive market. One of the first ever smartphones released in the U.S. with Windows Phone 7, the HTC Surround is also the first smartphone to have a slide out soundbar. Is this unique soundbar worth it?
Summary: The HTC Surround is what happens when a company has to be creative within a set of specific limitations. While we applaud HTC for creating an innovative design with its slide-out speaker, the phone as a whole doesn't fully deliver as a multimedia-centric device.
