Want to fall madly in love with a phone? Hit this link to read about the HTC 1, a new concept phone imagined as the next stage in HTC's smartphone design. We're unlikely to ever see this baby come into production, but hopefully some of its features will make it into next year's high-end smartphones.

The 1 has a frame made out of machined brass with a silver finish. The kickstand folds out from the body, maintaining its seamless appearance while still providing the benefits of a kickstand. The 1 has two speakers, one of which is hidden behind a sealed channel under the casing. It uses a stripped down, simplified version of the Sense UI known as Mono Edition.

With the 1, HTC's designers have created the perfect theoretical phone. It is simple, elegant and stylish. The new UI provides all the information you need with very simplified widgets and as few words as possible. It also promises to integrate SMS, AIM, MSN, Facebook and other messages into a single stream. If you contact the same person through multiple clients, all of the conversations you have will be stored in the same stream.

The 1's neatest feature may be the built-in UV light. When charging, it blazes out and kills micro-organisms that have attached themselves to smartphone. How well this feature would work in practice remains to be seen, but the idea of a self-cleaning phone is pretty awesome.
