    The HTC One's biggest weakness is that, as an Android device, it does not support SD Cards for expanding the Flash memory. So what HTC One did, was take the USA HTC One make the back cover removable, and added in SD Card support! It also added in a SECOND SIM card try for dual SIM support!

    Here it is... the unboxing...

    Even though the HTC One is constructed all out of aluminum, it is acutally just an aluminum backplate that is fused with plastic. Fused with plastic is a fancy way of saying glued to plastic. They look kind of silly here don't you think?

    Stupid move by HTC to not include microSD slot in their flagship phone. :mad:

    You should turn on annotations and look at the video again. I don't think the phone is locked to any carriers. Because of the second SIM, you can get a phone that supports any type of cell technology... CDMA2000, WCDMA, and the pure China TD-SCDMA. The first two is supported worldwide, the last is supported only in China (and one other I think).

    I wonder if this can use custom ROMs meant for the other HTC One versions.

    for China only. it will be hard to find in the usa. although ebay might have them. generally Negri Electronics and Expansys USA is pretty good with unlocked phones. they carry a wide variety, including dual-sim phones.

    speaking of htc one, i still wouldn't get it due to lack of SD card. sure it looks nice but i wont trade nice looks for functionality.

    Well the normal HTC One is around £450 so you might be able to sell this for £500-600 to Android enthusiasts.

    more detail about microsd in htc one

    Here is another video showing the MicroSD slot. This time you can see it actually slide in. It is the push until click to lock, and push until click to unlock type of MicroSD card slot. The same with the dual SIMS slots.
