HTC Sensation Special Edition to Be Loaded with Beats Technology, Faster Processor, Better Batt

by: Dave FerilSeptember 4, 2011

HTC’s flagship smartphone, the HTC Sensation, will soon have an upgraded version called the HTC Sensation Special Edition 2 (SE2), which will not only see several hardware upgrades but also the inclusion of Beats by Dr. Dre technology.

A good audio experience is one thing that most smartphones, including HTC’s, aren’t so good at. With the recent partnership agreement between HTC and the audio company Beats by Dr. Dre, consumers wondered when HTC would start coming out with its first Android smartphone with Beats technology.

Most folks thought HTC will be bringing out a brand-new device as its flagship for Beats by Dr. Dre. It turns out that HTC has decided to [...]

The Post-HTC Desire Syndrome

by: RandySeptember 3, 2011

It was in August last year that I contemplated purchasing my first Android phone. At that time, I loved the HTC unibody Aluminium concept and I was totally sold to the HTC Sense coloured bokeh look. I became a proud owner of a HTC Legend.

At that time, the HTC Desire was also a phenomenon on its own. The HTC Desire was the cream of the crop. It defeated the iPhone 4 to become T3’s “2010 Phone of the Year” and propelled HTC to the top, with them receiving accolades like the “Tech Brand of the Year”. You could imagine Peter Chou smiling ear-to-ear, while Steve Jobs must not have been very pleased about the loss.

After the Desire, HTC decided to milk the Desire [...]

HTC Kingdom Specs Leak; To Be called Acquire/EVO Design 4G?

by: MinaSeptember 2, 2011

Looks like Android fans will have a lot to expect this September from our Android manufacturers, like HTC. HTC will be holding some events on September in England, France, Spain, and Germany, and rumor has it that the highlights of the show will be “Eternity” and “Omega” of Windows Phone 7 fame. However, speculations abound that an HTC phone called “Kingdom” will make an appearance, with its specs and the unofficial name recently leaked strategically before the HTC event.

According to the leak, HTC Kingdom has a 4″ qHD display (540 x 960) and will run on Android 2.3.4 with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S2 (MSM7x30) processor, and 768MB of RAM. [...]

HTC Tool Now Unlocks More HTC Phones

by: Dave FerilSeptember 1, 2011

The bootloader unlocking section on the recently launched HTC Dev site has been updated yet again, and 4 variants of the HTC Sensation have been added to the list; namely, the T-Mobile USA, Turkish, Arabic, and Bouygues Telecom versions. Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D has also been marked as unlockable using the HTC-provided unlocking tool.

Unlocking the bootloader simply means that the owner of the device can customize the software on the device, or in simpler terms, install custom/modified Android software on the phone. The bootloader basically controls which applications must run during the boot process.

The official bootloader unlocking process is quite simple. Even [...]

HTC Holiday Prototype Strikes Again

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 1, 2011

An alleged prototype of the rumored HTC Holiday has been spotted again. This time, on eBay–along with photos and several details about its hardware specs.

eBay user “voteccow” sold the prototype for US$800 yesterday to an unspecified buyer. The item’s description page shows that the HTC Holiday prototype runs on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0 and is hooked up to the AT&T network. Power charging is done through a MicroUSB port.

The seller mentions that the 4.5-inch qHD touch panel screen still works fine even if the digitizer is cracked. The purchased item comes [...]

HTC Puccini to Arrive on AT&T as HTC Jetstream on September 4

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 1, 2011

Formerly known as the HTC Puccini, the latest tablet coming out of HTC’s goody bag will be called the HTC Jetstream when it arrives on AT&T this September 4. The mobile carrier recently announced the availability of the tablet as its first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet and the first to feature Android 3.1 Honeycomb.

The earlier release date for the tablet comes as a surprise, since an HTC official confirmed in mid-August that the HTC Puccini will be launched in late September or early October.

The HTC Jetstream will be exlusively available starting September 4 at AT&T’s company-owned retail stores and online shop. The tablet costs US$700 with a new two-year [...]

Preview of the New HTC Sense 3.5 UI

by: LucianAugust 26, 2011

HTC was the first manufacturer to put a skin on Android, and arguably they did a pretty good job at it. While everyone else has been scrambling to catch-up to their first version of the Sense UI, they continued improving it and making it more visually appealing with the 3.0 version, and this fall they are going to launch new handsets with their seemingly overhauled Sense 3.5 UI.

Gingerbread or Icecream Sandwich?

Since ICS is supposedly coming in October, I doubt this new Sense 3.5 UI is going to be for ICS phones, so it’s most likely coming to their new Android 2.3 phones. Another hint about this is that their version number is 3.5, not 4.0, even though the skin [...]

HTC Vigor Rumored to be the First Beats Phone

by: MinaAugust 14, 2011

The rumor behind this has quite a lot of basis to it. With HTC’s official Youtube channel confirming its partnership with Beats by Dr. Dre and uploading a teaser on being able to “feel the music the way the artist intended,” many suspect that the first-ever Beats phone might be the HTC Vigor — the HTC phone reported for an October 5 release by Verizon. Two months might be enough time to fully integrate the Beats feature in the smartphone, but the question remains: will the integration really make the HTC Vigor sound better than the rest of the pack?

The answer remains a mystery, for now. The speculations however only lead to higher anticipation [...]
