HTC likes professionally shot videos - they've released at least one for each new phone announced in the recent history.

We have no problem with that - we can appreciate a good quality HD video showing this desirable beast up close.

What we do have a problem with is how boring this video is. Evo is flying around the screen to some lounge music in the most mind-numbing way possible; there is no voice-over - just a rundown of the main features.

The features are, as we already know, really nice. Here are the ones the video covers:

  • first 4G phone
  • 8MP camera
  • HDMI output
  • kickstand
  • cinematic experience
  • new generation of HTC sense - doesn't really look that much more exciting than in 1.5 - combines Twitter, Facebook, and flickr into one widget but looks generally the same
  • live wallpapers
  • 4G sharing with computers around

You can do better, HTC, so much better. Take Google's commercials for the Nexus One if you need an example.

Update: updated the video that HTC deleted.
