    It looks like we have further confirmation of an HTC One Mini device coming later this year to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and the next iPhone. We have heard repeated rumors about the device and even shared leaked pics, but now Bloomberg seems to have confirmed the device through industry insider sources. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    What do you guys think? If HTC releases this device, how successful do you think it will be?

    I don't get why HTC thinks a slightly smaller screen with slightly weaker specs is some profitable opportunity. In 6 months they'd otherwise be discounting the One to hit that market segment.

    The incremental R&D and production costs of a decision like this is why HTC can't make money. HTC seems to believe people come in looking for very specific "specs", and that merely putting such a device on the shelf is a winner. They'd be far better off putting that money into advertising to convert these people into One sales.

    I'll be more inclined to go 4.3 than the mammoth big brother.I'm just not interested in a bigger screen than my Rezound.

    It's lighter and thinner than the Rezound...approx 6% wider and 4% longer (less than 2/10th of an inch). I'd say it's very comparable in size to the Rezound, bigger display but less bezel.

    I wouldn't mind giving up some mind blowing specs in order to have a phone no bigger than my current phone.
    It also doesn't matter to me if Verizon doesn't carry it either. Unless something major changes I'm leaving this fall after being a 20 year customer. I'm not paying $120 activation fees to reup my 4 lines.
