The cell phone company embarked on a national tour to promote the HTC One, opening what HTC is calling a “BoomSound Lounge” in six U.S. cities to let consumers try out the phone and enter a free raffle to win one. The lounge will be open during the day in Franklin Square near Old City until Friday, April 19, when the phone goes on sale.
