Today is the big day! Well, another big day for Android at least. We told you about a week ago that there were invites sent out about HTC holding an event in New York City today at around 3pm Eastern time.
Jason McKenzie started the event, first by saying “Smartphones went from niche to mainstream and HTC wants to give you the perfect mobile experience.” I think we can all agree that this is true; I have also watched the Android ecosystem go from about three different manufacturers to many in the last two to three years.
The CEO of HTC, Peter Chou also stated that the Smartphone revolution is sweeping the world. [...]
Too excited for the official unveiling on Thursday, Verizon already has adorned its stores with flyers that feature the much-anticipated HTC Rezound. Most of everything there is to know about this device can now be confirmed, especially with a video on YouTube showcasing a prototype.
Sent by tipsters to Droid Life, the new flyers, perhaps posted early by enthusiastic Verizon employees, display three smartphones that will take advantage of the telecom’s blazingly fast LTE standard. Showing off in front is the new HTC Rezound displaying some love for Joe Jonas and equipped with Beats-compatible earbuds. Right behind it are the LG [...]
This looks interesting. HTC is having a little get-together in New York City on November 3, and guess what? Beats Audio is invited.
Could HTC be unveiling the HTC Holiday (rumored for AT&T)? Or the Verizon HTC Rezound (a.k.a. HTC Vigor)? Nothing is official yet, but we can always hope and speculate, can’t we?
The last time HTC hosted an event, it announced the HTC Sensation XL (a.k.a. HTC Runnymede). Now that device is pretty sexy, complete with a 4.7-inch display and Beats Audio built in, along with Beats headphones. Here’s to HTC’s goodness!
What do you think HTC is going to announce or show off to us?
Three of the hottest Android smartphones that many people have been patiently waiting for have started appearing within the Cellebrite system–the Google Nexus Prime, the Motorola DROID HD, and the HTC Vigor. And, as has usually been the case with Cellebrite updates, the Motorola DROID HD has also recently appeared on Verizon Wireless’ Device Management system.
Cellebrite is a system that transfers phone data (e.g., contacts, SMS, multimedia, files, etc.) from one mobile handset to another regardless of carrier or handset manufacturer.
A tipster has sent three interesting photos of Cellebrite terminals to Droid Life, and the photos explicitly named the three [...]
There are 2 upcoming next-gen phones that will offer the the iPhone 5 incredible competition product-wise, especially if the “iPhone 5″ will be just an upgraded iPhone 4. Those phones are the Android Ice-Cream Sandwich powered Nexus Prime (which might actually be split in 2 versions: a global one called Galaxy Nexus, and a Verizon one called Droid Prime), and HTC’s latest superphone, the HTC Vigor. Let’s see what they are all about so you can decide what best fits you.
Let’s start with the easy part – the specs – and then we see how each stand up against each other.Nexus Prime Processor: OMAP 4460 dual core 1.5 [...]
It seems that the guys at Apple are at their old game again. If there’s one thing that Apple has been exceptionally good at, it’s keeping us guessing while managing to “leak” information to keep our mouths watering.
With all the hype surrounding the iPhone 5, one device that manages to spark similar interest among mobile phone enthusiasts is the HTC Vigor, also rumored to be called the HTC DROID Incredible HD, the HTC Thunderbolt 2, or the HTC Rezound. Information about HTC’s latest offering is much more forthright. This is probably the reason why so many techies are genuinely excited about the HTC Vigor.
The two are awesomely powerful devices, [...]
One took photos, while another dissected a ROM Update Utility file (RUU) of the HTC Vigor–two different enterprises that resulted in a more-or-less unofficial confirmation of the HTC Vigor’s specs and features.
According to the two different sources, the HTC Vigor will have the following specs and features in tow when Verizon Wireless unleashes it:dual-core 1.5-GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 processor Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread 4.3-inch screen at HD (720p) resolution, with pixel density of 320 HTC Sense 3.5 1 GB of RAM 8-megapixel primary camera 2-megapixel secondary camera Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity 4G LTE

“That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet,” wrote Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet. He could have been talking of the HTC Vigor, too, if he lived to these days, during which a document allegedly for internal use on Verizon Wireless claims that the HTC Vigor will be renamed/rebranded into the HTC Rezound.
Presumably tipped by a Verizon insider, Droid Life published a screenshot of what is purported to be a Verizon database of some sort that lists handset model ADR6425LVW side by side its “description”–the HTC Rezound.
The handset model number was the same as the one that appeared on the NenaMark1 database in [...]
