I don't have the One yet and never seen it in real live but I was wonder whether it would be possible to turn the HTC logo into a menu button? On the One X the entire glass display is touch sensitive even the parts where there is no LCD

The logo definitely is in an area with touch sensing, but I don't claim to know whether or not the area can be defined as a button.

Quite possible since the whole touch screen extends to where the capacitive buttons are, you can test this by going to a webpage and draging your finger down to the logo and see if it keeps scrolling

If it does then its very likely that someone could turn the logo into a button

It doesn't keep scrolling if you drop off the screen onto the buttons or the logo.

AW: Turn HTC logo into a capacitive button
Check it out with adb get event.
That way we would know it for sure if it triggers an event when being touched.

That won't work as it can't show any touch on the logo as it's not a display.
Adb get event command is the best way to check it out.
Someone should do it

The buttons are part of the digitizer, so its possible to map any point to a button, it has nothing to do with browser scrolling (it ends where the display ends)

insertcoined....
