The HTC Rezound, aka HTC Vigor, has stopped by the FCC before, but they just revisited our friends at the FCC again, adding a really awesome new feature: wireless charging! Couldn’t we all use this feature? According to the FCC, the differences from the HTC Rezound’s first visit to the FCC in September are:
the device has added an all new “wireless charging back cover.” The same wireless inductive charging found on those fancy Sonicare toothbrushes.
The remainder of 2011 will be loaded with great new Android devices. Verizon has said they will be announcing or releasing a new Android device every week for the rest of 2011. Now that is a lot [...]
I wonder if the Android manufacturers, especially the top 5 ones – Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Sony – can sleep well at night knowing how many millions of devices they’ve left behind without upgrading them even for a year, or many times without upgrading them at all. I’m thinking they sleep pretty well, knowing they sold the devices to customers, and now they don’t have to care about them anymore. Because if they didn’t, then they’d probably actually do something about it, wouldn’t they?
This graph has been going around the web for the past couple of days, and while I think it was created with some [...]
The LTE-capable HTC Raider, formerly codenamed the HTC Holiday–is heading to Canada through mobile networks Bell and Rogers.
Rogers has announced that the HTC Raider is heading to stores today, with a marked price of $149.99 for a 3-year contract and $574.99 full retail price. On the other hand, the device will reach Bell’s store on November 1, as reflected in Bell’s updated product page for the HTC Raider. The device will reportedly carry a price of $169.95 on a 3-year contract and $499.95 full retail price–although Bell has not yet published confirmation about the pricing for the smartphone.
The HTC Raider will also be reaching Canada [...]
The HTC Rhyme is a new device, designed for the more stylish and fashionable Android user. This device packs a sleek punch with a nice purple detailed casing and strong durability. We found the phone to be very durable, using metals instead of most plastics. It also has a removable battery, which an increasing number of phones are starting to phase out, ever aspiring to be thinner and thinner.
Through an unboxing, HTC has provided an impressive purple box, with a ribbon to pull the device out. There are definite elements that are more feminine than say, a DROID branded device.
Opening the Android “diva” box left us with a nice set of earbuds and a charm, [...]
HTC bears good news to all HTC EVO 3D users: a security update for this device will be rolling out starting on October 27. It’s just a few hours away, but you can force install this update right now from the Sprint Community.
Software version 2.08.651.3 will feature a host of security improvements, but Sprint remains mum on what these updates specifically are. Like most updates, Sprint will be cascading this update in stages. So if you don’t get the update right away, just keep trying and checking within this week.
HTC users have reported a few security flaws over the last few weeks, citing claims that the HTC Android gadgets could potentially allow intruders [...]
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?
HTC users are now going to enjoy more data storage capacity, thanks to a recent tie-up between HTC and Dropbox. Today, via Facebook, HTC shared the good news to its users that Dropbox will come pre-installed on all its upcoming Android phones, giving all its users 5 GB of free cloud storage on Dropbox (more than the standard of 2 GB of storage).
Although, HTC did not clarify whether existing users will also enjoy this cloud-enabled file sharing application.
It appears that HTC’s strategy is to make its phones more appealing by giving those who will buy HTC phones free cloud storage rather than just focusing on adding more features to their phones. This appears to be [...]
Last week Sprint announced a new member of the EVO family, the HTC EVO Design 4G. If you remember, in 2010 when the original HTC EVO 4G was released, it changed the Android world. It was way ahead of any other phone out there at the time.
Both the Motorola Admiral and HTC EVO Design 4G are available for $99.99 on a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. The EVO Design 4G is a world phone with a 4.0-inch qHD display and a 1.2GHz CPU – not dual core, unfortunately. The Motorola Admiral features a processor with the same clock speed and a QWERTY keyboard below its 3.1-inch display. Motorola’s Admiral is also designed to military specifications and features [...]
Now that Google has started officially serving bars of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich through the freshly launched Galaxy Nexus, Android smartphone users have several questions in mind, among which an important one is “Will my HTC Android smartphone get upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich?” The likelihood is high, but HTC may take some time before it delivers Android’s latest tasty treat from the ice cream truck.
HTC has released a statement through Engadget to address how it will level up to Samsung’s advantage in being the first to carry and show off the latest Android mobile operating system:
We are excited about the [...]
The HTC Thunderbolt has a had a pretty hard time getting the upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread. We’ve seen leaks, and rumors galore about the update. Not to mention the fact that the official OTA got yanked, which has gotten Thunderbolt users pretty frustrated, and perhaps looking to change to a different device – maybe the Galaxy Nexus? As far as we know, the Galaxy Nexus rumored to be a Verizon exclusive when it comes out sometime in late October or early November.
Hopefully, HTC and Verizon have worked together to fix the bugs in the previous OTA so that Thunderbolt users can finally get a taste of Gingerbread, and I have to say its pretty tasty. [...]
