Tonight HTC held a mingling event at the Burroughes in downtown Toronto to showcase the new HTC One (M8) to Canada. Various press, vendors, and HTC Elevate members were invited to the event.

Blinkfeed and Onscreen Navigation Buttons
The Duo Camera
The new camera UI
I found myself hitting the left side of the phone bottom black bar many times thinking a capacitive back button would be there like the previous generation HTC One. Now you need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the navigation buttons
Some third party cases behind display cases. A few HTC employees had the Dot View case on hand.
HTC pulled together a great event to show case the HTC One. I wish there were more units spread out at the venue for people to touch. It would've been great to see the inside of the phone for people to appreciate the effort and detail that went into the construction of such a high quality phone.
The HTC One is expected to go on sale at major Canadian wireless retailers starting next week. I encourage you to drop by your wireless provider to feel the smooth aluminum finish of the HTC One.
