Although it was hailed as HTC’s comeback and it supposedly started off more than decently, the One X couldn’t stand the Galaxy S3 charge and saw its sales rapidly drop. No, that’s not an official story, but earlier rumors, combined with a new one, certainly make the scenario trustworthy.
The new rumor comes from an XDA-Developers forum user, who supposedly got his hands on an AT&T e-mail announcing the upcoming price slashing of the One X. “Surflamj”, a junior member of the forum, has stated that he works “for AT&T as a sales rep”, and says that the One X’s discount won’t be part of a temporary “special or deal”.
That means that, starting this Sunday, [...]
Like the headline says, a full three months after the phone was released in the country, HTC has finally made the kernel source for the HTC One X on AT&T available to download.
Now, if you’re a regular user who likes your HTC One X and all its Sense as it is – then it may not be such a big deal. But for folks who frequent forums and websites where modders and tweakers usually lurk about, you’ll definitely see the profound effect the released kernel source has. We’re talking about pants wetting level of excitement here.
As we speak, devs are already cooking up some sauce to update their modded ROMs and whatnot for the HTC One X. With the availability of the [...]
Well, so much for seeing HTC making the imaginary T-Mobile G3. To be fair, we did hint (albeit a little) that there’s a possibility that the rumored HTC Era 42 will turn out to be the HTC One X. We just missed the mark by a single “plus”. The latest whispers now indicate that that T-Mobile will be getting a revamped version of the HTC One X in fall, the HTC One X+.
If accurate, what will the “plus” sign on T-Mobile’s variant of the HTC One X signify? Will we be seeing a One X that comes with a microSD card slot AND a removable battery? Or could it be something even bigger, like the use of a more powerful Tegra 3+ processor at a higher clock speed than the [...]
The cloud storage competition on mobile devices is heating up, as Box goes on the offense against other established players in the market. The cloud storage company has struck a deal with Qualcomm, one of biggest SoC makers in the Android ecosystem, as well as with Microsoft for its Windows Phone devices. We figure you’ll be more interested in the former, so here are the deets.
The Qualcomm partnership means that select devices powered by Snapdragon processors will come preloaded with the Box Android app. The main perk for users is that they will get 50GB of free Box storage. The deal doesn’t necessarily mean that the Box service is mandatory, but phone manufacturers [...]
In case you haven’t recently purchased a smartphone and you’re eligible to upgrade to a hot Android device for a subsidized device, then you shouldn’t hurry and get your handset from your chosen carrier. Instead, head on over to RadioShack and check out the retailer’s most recent promotion.
The company is ready to slash $50 off on any Android smartphone in its inventory that’s priced $99.99 or higher. The deal is available until July 28 in stores, while the RadioShack online store will keep offering the promotion through to the end of August.
The devices that are part of the promotion include hot smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy [...]
Almost a month has passed after the formal introduction of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The new operating system’s source code has itself been released a couple of weeks back, so it’s only natural for users to expect official Jelly Bean updates to be flowing, right?
However, as recent history has sadly shown us, the road from an OS update becoming open source to it actually hitting the most popular devices around is a very bumpy one. So it’s no wonder that we still (officially) know very little about the Jelly Bean upgrade timeframes.
The only three devices that are already running Android 4.1 are the unlocked Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 7 tablet, and now the Nexus S. [...]
Although we are almost nine months since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released, the updating process on most high-end and mid-range devices has been frustratingly slow, to say the least. Every major manufacturer still has at least a couple of important gadgets not officially running ICS, which is why most of us were surprised to see Jelly Bean released already.
As expected, the updating process for Android 4.1 JB is itself shaping out to be slow and painful, and for now, we only have the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7 tablet officially running Jelly Bean.
Fortunately, we seem to be getting some rather optimistic signals from OEMs about Jelly Bean updates [...]
New benchmarks have turned up on the GLBenchmark website, showing a phone known as the HTC PM63100. This 1.7Ghz, 1196 x 720, Android 4.0.4 smartphone could be the successor to the HTC One X.
The device, which goes by the codename “Evitareul”, is likely a new iteration of the HTC One XL which has the codenamne “Evita.” The new phone has a 1.7Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, making it 200Mhz faster than the 1.5GHz CPU used in the One X. The system information captured by GLBenchmark shows the phone running Android 4.0.4 but given that Jelly Bean is now available as source code and that devices like the Nexus 7 are starting to ship with it, then it is [...]
To follow up on our report about the arrival of the HTC One X on Telus Mobility in Canada, we’ve got more news to share on the price of HTC’s flagship phone on the carrier and when you’ll be able to purchase one.
Although the carrier’s website still has the HTC One X listed as “coming soon”, a leaked internal document that was uncovered by Mobile Syrup indicates that the phone will arrive on July 13. This gives you a day to decide on whether to get Samsung’s latest and greatest – if you haven’t already done so – or pick HTC’s device instead.
If you’re still on the fence between the two, perhaps some price details of the HTC One X will help you make an informed [...]
The HTC One X is arguably one of the best Android phones in town, rivaling the Samsung Galaxy S3 in terms of performance and features. Although the Galaxy S3 is racking up some applause from the community, the One X is still a remarkable device that shouldn’t be left in the dust. If you’re an owner of HTC’s flagship quad-core phone, then you might have noticed a tiny problem: it shuts down its data connections during the night.
Many HTC users from various parts of the world have reported that their new HTC handsets were affected by the said dilemma. Users who have HTC phones running Sense 4.0 are the ones commonly affected by the bug as their Wi-Fi and data [...]
