Now that the One X+ is good and official, HTC has posted a short walk-through of some of their thinking behind the design of their latest smartphone. There's not much said that isn't told through the sketches they've posted, other than obvious stuff like they were aiming to "create a smartphone you wanted to hold and use everyday". HTC does hint, however,that they're going to produce a longer series about the design process, which would be pretty nice. They did up an excellent video for the launch of their latest Windows Phone, and some similar content for Android devices would be great.
For those of you just tuning in, the HTC One X+ is a shaping up to be a great new Android handset hitting Europe this month.

What would you guys like to see in future HTC behind-the-scenes content? Personally, I think it would be really interesting to see some scrapped prototypes and hear from the designers and product managers why the kept certain aspects but ditched others.
