by: Bogdan PetrovanApril 3, 2013

The Chinese versions of the HTC One will differ from the models sold in the West, a leaked picture reveals.

There’s no disputing that the aluminum unibody of the HTC One lend it excellent resistance to mechanical shocks (as illustrated in our recent HTC One drop test), but also a special look and feel that can’t be emulated through other designs. But the unibody approach has its own set of drawbacks, mainly the sealed battery, which cannot be replaced by the user, and the absence of a microSD card slot or of a secondary SIM slot.

China Unicom removed ‘Google’ from Android Phones

by: James TromansMarch 25, 2010

China Unicom

In light of what has developed recently in China with regards to Google, unfiltered search and the lack thereof, China Unicom has dropped Google as a search partner from its forthcoming Android based smartphones.

In the past days Google has defied the Chinese government somewhat, forwarding to Google Kong Kong as an ‘entirely legal’ way of bringing about unfiltered search results to Chinese residents. However, this whole series of events has not sat well with the Chinese government, and Unicom’s president Lu Yimin has said,

“We are willing to work with any company that abides by Chinese law…we don’t have [...]
