Black or white model – the latter possibly out soon – owners of HTC EVO 4G LTE won’t be able to use WiFi tethering on their device without having to resort to some creative solution, preferably one that doesn’t require paying an additional monthly fee to Sprint. Last we checked, the mobile hotspot plan costs $20 a month for 2GB and $50 for 6GB of data.
The same goes when trying to use some good old USB or Bluetooth network tethering, which is normally impossible due to carrier’s restriction. Fortunately, the task is but a simple one for the tinkerers at themikmik.com, who devised a method later shared on XDA-developers.
For those who are rather skilled, you can [...]
HTC is working on a new flagship One device, presumably called One XXL. The name of the device might lead you to believe that it’s that Galaxy Note competitor that we heard about. Indeed, One XXL would’ve been a well suited name for a HTC-made phablet, but it seems that the device is actually an upgrade to the HTC One X (or One XL on AT&T and Bell).
The new One XXL can be called a next-gen device, seeing how it will have a quad-core S4 Pro SoC, with Adreno 320 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM, although the rest of the specs are not that new. You get the same 720p display (not that it should be any higher) and an 8MP rear-facing camera, which, if it would take [...]
Unlike the US, India is a country where national roaming isn’t free, and can, in fact, get quite expensive if you aren’t paying attention. As such, dual-sim mobile phones have become very popular, especially for those who travel across state borders often. Unfortunately, there aren’t many mid-to-high end devices in the dual-sim category. It looks like with the release of the HTC Desire V, the Taiwanese company is aiming to change that.
The specifications of the HTC Desire V dual-sim phone are:4″ WVGA display 480×800 resolution 1Ghz ARM Cortex – A5 processor 4GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card 5MP rear camera with [...]
After unveiling Microsoft Surface a few days ago, the company’s first Windows-based tablet, Microsoft on Thursday introduced Windows Phone 8 during the Windows Phone 8 Summit event. Alongside the recently announced iOS 6, WP8 will the main adversary of Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. That’s why we’re going to take a look at the main 8 features of WP8, as presented by Microsoft’s engineers and see what this next-gen mobile platform will have to offer.
After that, we invite you to answer our newest poll – are you impressed with Windows Phone 8?
Before we delve into the main Windows Phone 8 [...]
Earlier today, HTC officially announced via their website that the Rezound’s Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update was available for installation. Oddly, Verizon Wireless was completely silent from their end. Normally, Verizon updates their support pages prior to an official update being pushed onto their devices.
For those that have been following the HTC Rezound leaks over the past 4 months (yes, the ICS leaks started that long ago), this update, Software Number: 3.14.605.10 710RD; Baseband Version:1.22.10.0421r, 1.22.10.0424r, is the exact same build from last weeks latest leak. If you’re already running that release, at this point, you’re as [...]
Released back in November 2011 for a pretty steep $299 on contract, Verizon’s HTC Rezound hasn’t exactly proven to be the “hero” device HTC was looking for. Still, the LTE-enabled 4.3-incher has managed to sell pretty decently, especially after its price was cut to $199.
The Rezound may now become more appealing than ever, although some might have thought that its time has passed. Why is that? Well, because for a limited time only, you’ll be able to pick this big guy up for just $79.99.
That’s right, Verizon is offering a promotional discount of $120 for the Rezound 4G LTE and, while the deal doesn’t have a due date announced just yet, our friendly advice would [...]
Just as your black HTC EVO 4G LTE is settling down nicely in its new home after a prolonged pit stop at the Customs, there are now reports that a white EVO 4G LTE might be around.
A source has confirmed to Techno Buffalo that a white version of HTC EVO 4G LTE is in the works and will be introduced by Sprint and HTC. The proof is in the warehouse inventory pudding. As you can see on the screenshot below, the HTC X325C listing is none other than the white HTC EVO 4G LTE. While a specific launch date for the white version of the HTC EVO 4G LTE wasn’t mentioned, we’re sure we’ll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
Those who have made their purchase of the [...]
Over the past couple of weeks, an increasing number of reports surfaced online regarding a construction flaw in the HTC One X’ design that leads to faulty WiFi signal reception in some units.
As pointed out by multiple users from XDA-Developers, the problem lies within the hardware and not the software. HTC One X units that showcase this problem can be squeezed to increase the strength of the WiFi signal (that’s why many have nicknamed the issue “the reverse death grip”). Those of you unwilling to take your high-end Android smartphone apart and manually correct the manufacturing error should be glad to know that the Taiwanese manufacturer has now officially [...]
Getting only the non-Snapdragon S4 processor variant of the HTC One S doesn’t seem to deter the lust that folks in several Asian countries have for the phone. Good news for those in India, as the HTC One S was officially launched yesterday and is now available to purchase.
Several online retailers in the country have already started selling the HTC One S for a couple of days. The price for the super thin phone ranges from INR 33,000 to INR 36,000, which puts it at around US$600 – 650. Clearly, there’s nothing mid-range about the One S – at least when it comes to its price.
Meanwhile, HTC enthusiasts in Singapore can finally get their hands on the One S [...]
HTC’s second in command flagship phone, the One S, is making its way to Cincinnati Bell. The regional carrier has announced that the phone will be available starting June 25, and it is set to become Cincinnati Bell’s finest addition to its smartphone lineup — a spot that was previously held by the LG 2X.
The HTC One S is the thinnest out of the three One series. At a mere 7.8mm thickness, it also holds the honor of being HTC’s thinnest phone to date. Inside the sleek aluminum unibody design of the phone, you’ll find the same dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor that’s powering the HTC One X in the US. Consider yourselves lucky, US users, since the [...]
