Apple’s Patent Win Over HTC Put Into Question By U.S. Trade Agency

by: LucianSeptember 19, 2011

On July 15th, an ITC judge decided that HTC infringed on 2 of the 4 patents that Apple used against HTC. Now, it seems that a U.S Trade Agency has formed a 6 person comission to review to validity of these 4 patents, and whether a correct interpretation has been made for three of the patents.

That means they could either invalidate Apple’s win, or they could make it so HTC is responsible for the infringement of just one patent, or two of them, or even of all three (in which case Apple would be even happier with the review).

Apple has accused HTC of “stealing” their technology from the iPhone in this trial, and HTC has stated that no matter the [...]

HTC Sensation XE Vows More Thump-thump Pleasure with Beats Audio Technology

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 14, 2011

HTC has officially launched today the first fruit of its recently inked “strategic partnership” with Beats Electronics–the HTC Sensation XE.

Formerly codenamed the HTC Sensation Special Edition, the HTC Sensation XE will reach European, Middle Eastern, African, and Asia Pacific markets in late September.

The handset is expected to cost about EUR590 (about US$806). No word has been given yet regarding release in the U.S. and Canada.

The HTC Sensation XE is the first–and definitely not the last–HTC Android handset to come equipped with Beats Audio technology for “studio quality” sound experience.

Pretty much everything else in [...]

Verizon’s Upcoming Android Phones for the Holidays Leaked; Include HTC Thunderbolt 2, Samsung Prime, Samsung Stratosphere

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 14, 2011

Verizon has several new Android devices lined up to replace older models for the holidays. According a photo of a list leaked by a tipster, the new upcoming Verizon devices include the HTC Thunderbolt 2 (replacing the HTC Thunderbolt), Samsung Stratosphere (replacing the Samsung Fascinate), and the Samsung Prime (replacing the Samsung DROID Charge), among others.

A member of Android Forums who claims to be working for Best Buy allegedly received from a Verizon representative a copy of a list of upcoming phones slated for release on Verizon for the holidays.

Of note on the list are the HTC Thunderbolt 2, the Samsung Stratosphere, and the Samsung Prime (whose [...]

Bad News for Microsoft: HTC Might Buy webOS

by: LucianSeptember 12, 2011

HTC is reportedly being interested in acquiring webOS from HP. HP is probably still not sure whether they want to sell it or not, most likely along with their Palm patents, which HTC could also really use against Apple (and maybe Microsoft later). Also, HTC says if they are doing this they want it to be a very rational decision, and not an impulse one.

First of all, they need to be sure HP isn’t ripping them off, asking them for many billions of dollars for it. In my opinion webOS is worth even less now than it did when HP bought it. The thing is, the more time passed, the more Android and iOS got a foothold in the market, and now webOS is even further behind. So [...]

HTC Vigor Launch Date Nears as Device Gets FCC Clearance for CDMA/EVDO, 4G LTE Radios

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 12, 2011

Verizon Wireless just released the Motorola DROID Bionic, a powerful beast-of-a-smartphone, last week, and it won’t be too long before another powerful beast–this time from HTC’s camp–comes along, as a device rumored to be the HTC Vigor just made it past the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Said to be the HTC Vigor, the device with HTC model number PH98100 (FCC ID NM8PH98100), recently received clearance from the FCC for its CDMA/EVDO and 4G LTE radios. As is usually the case, approval from the FCC usually suggests the device’s launch or release date just around the corner.

HTC has been mum on the details about the HTC [...]

HTC Invites Press to “Celebrate in Style” in NYC on September 20, Might Launch New Android Device

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 12, 2011

HTC is hosting a “celebration” in New York City this coming September 20, and no one has any clear idea what will be celebrated, although the invitations that HTC has been sending out to the press say “Come celebrate in style with HTC.”

Unlike Samsung’s press invitation for its U.S. launching of the Samsung Galaxy S II last August 30, HTC’s event doesn’t give a hint about anything. We are suspecting, as is usual with such events, that HTC will be unveiling a new device.

As to whether the device will be an Android, Windows Phone 7, or Qualcomm Brew–operating systems that run on HTC phones (with Android holding [...]

HTC’s Latest Counter Brings Google Closer to the Fray

by: Edmund ApostolSeptember 12, 2011

HTC made another jab against Apple last week by amending its earlier counter lawsuit. Nine new patents have been cited in this latest complaint filed in the US International Trade Commission. Why is this news? The additional patents came from Google and were recently transferred to HTC in September 1. This essentially gives the second largest smartphone manufacturer in Asia more ammunition to fend off Apple Inc. More importantly, it looks like Google won’t be sitting in the sidelines of this patent war for long.

The first shot was fired by Apple in March 2010 when it sued HTC for no less than 20 patent infringements which according to Apple’s representatives were [...]

AT&T Starts Selling HTC Jetstream for US$700

by: Gracielli RobaroSeptember 7, 2011

Formerly codenamed the HTC Puccini, the latest tablet from HTC has now arrived and is officially available on AT&T as the HTC Jetstream. The HTC Jetstream is HTC’s very first tablet powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb.

AT&T sells the HTC Jetstream with a two-year contract for a lower price of only US$699.99. Without a two-year subscription with AT&T, the tablet’s full retail price is US$849.99.

The HTC Jetstream is completely available online and in AT&T-owned retail stores.

Although costly, the tablet’s technical specifications and features arguably compensates for its rather high price.

The HTC Puccini is the very first [...]

HTC Rhyme Shows Up on Verizon Price List, Could Be HTC Bliss Loaded with Beats Tech

by: Dave FerilSeptember 6, 2011

Verizon has an upcoming mid-range Android smartphone from HTC–and it’s possible that the phone may be carrying Beats by Dr. Dre technology.

A Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) list allegedly from Verizon Wireless found its way to Droid Life and showed the HTC Rhyme with a price tag of US$200.

Very little is currently known about the HTC Rhyme. The MAP list shows it with model number ADR6330, which seems close to the model number of the HTC Merge (ADR6325) and the HTC DROID Incredible 2 (ADR6350).

This device might share the appearance of either of the two aforementioned devices, although it is tough to tell for now.

Also, the HTC Rhyme’s price [...]

The Best Android Gadgets Of IFA 2011

by: glennSeptember 5, 2011

The IFA is touted as the biggest consumer electronics trade show in the world. Does it beat CES? That I’m not sure but I do know it is a great place to catch up with the latest gadgets the big guys have to offer. It’s especially interesting what’s available this year in terms of Android: lots of new tablets, phones and then some. Here’s a few notable devices from this year’s German event.

Samsung Galaxy Note

Undoubtedly my favorite in the show, this device from Samsung is “not a phone, not yet a tablet”. If you’ve handled the Dell Streak, this is something similar but slimmer. The 5.3-inch screen makes it more comfortable [...]
