HTC has announced a new preview program, aptly named HTC Preview, which will see it send unreleased devices and software to users for testing.

Following poor sales and the organization’s declining revenue, it’s unsurprising to see this type of project come about. It’s a good way for HTC to open communications with its users.

The HTC Preview website says the company is interested in finding “people with an eye for design, a passion for technology, and a bunch of great ideas” to get involved. Everyone that registers will need to sign an NDA and commit to using the software or device as their main product while testing.

The program is available now in the US, Europe and Asia. If you are in the US, you’ll need to be on T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint or Verizon to participate.
