HTC has announced a new testing program called HTC Preview for users to test HTC hardware and software even before their release. The announcement was made by program’s North American team during a Reddit AMA session. The good thing is that you don’t have to be an existing HTC customer to register for it.

There have been a lot of time before when tech companies have started such programs to get feedback from the users. The unique thing about the HTC Preview is that company is also offering hardware products for testing. It means you may get to test an HTC smartphone even before its official release. However, do keep in mind that HTC has placed in some really strict Non-disclosure agreement which comprises of even stricter legal conditions. So, if you become one of those selected ones, then you better not leak anything.

As for registration, you need to go to the website of the HTC Preview and create a free account. After this, you will have to answer a few questions and then, simply wait for an email from HTC if you are selected. However, HTC has made it clear that simply registration does not guarantee that you will get to test any of their products. The people will be chosen depending upon how well they match up to a specific project.
