HTC Devices Naked, Vulnerable with Security Flaw

by: Elmer MontejoOctober 2, 2011

If you’re presently using an HTC Android device, chances are you’re a sitting duck for malicious hacking. Working with security experts Justin Case and Trevor Eckhart, Artem Russakovski of Android Police, reported about a security flaw in HTC Android gadgets that could potentially allow intruders to access sensitive information on your Android device.

Although Russakovski explicitly mentioned the HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO 4G, and HTC Thunderbolt, there is a big chance that other HTC devices are also affected. Case, Eckhart, and Russakovski are still investigating the matter–and they are finding new issues the deeper they dig. Devices running stock HTC Sense [...]

HTC to Use Nvidia Kal-El Chips in 2012?

by: LucianOctober 1, 2011

Could this be the end of HTC’s exclusive use of Qualcomm chips? In a recent interview of HTC’s VP of Marketing with GSMArena, he said there’s actually “no exclusive deal” between HTC and Qualcomm, and when asked what other chips they could use, he said “Nvidia or TI-powered smartphones and tablets are possible in the future.”

Qualcomm have done very well for themselves with the rise of touchscreen smartphones. They managed to grab TI’s longstanding leadership position, which happened with the rise of Android and the fall of Nokia and RIM (who mainly used TI chips).

But perhaps the biggest reason Qualcomm got this position is [...]

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 30, 2011

Two Android devices–a 7-inch tablet and a 4.5-inch smartphone– have been sighted lately, both of which are reportedly heading for the U.S. market.

“In the wild” photos of the T-Mobile variant of the Huawei MediaPad have been leaked by an unnamed source to TmoNews.

The tablet is reportedly 4G-capable and comes with a 4,100-mAh battery pack. The photos show T-Mobile apps and widgets, which suggest confirmation of where the tablet is heading to.

Huawei Honor Shows How the Company is Becoming a Better Player in the Market

by: LucianSeptember 27, 2011

I’ve been watching Huawei lately, and I like to compare their rise in the smartphone market with the rise of HTC. Just like HTC, they were once just an OEM for other companies, making phones under those companies’ brands. They still do that, but they are increasingly becoming more popular in the smartphone market under their own brand name.

That’s didn’t happen by accident, though. They are starting to make higher and higher quality phones, with higher end specs, that can become very competitive product-wise with other phones from more well-known players.

Just like HTC, they aren’t going to become a huge player overnight in the [...]

HTC Sensation XL Comes Out as New Rumored Name for HTC Runnymede

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 27, 2011

Contrary to a report yesterday saying that the HTC Runnymede will be rebranded into the HTC Bass, an informant has whispered that the HTC Runnymede will be renamed the HTC Sensation XL when it comes out.

An unnamed source told Pocketnow about the rebrand. While confirming that the HTC Sensation XL will have Beats Audio technology, the same source also mentioned that the HTC Sensation XL will come in two bundles: a “regular” bundle that includes iBeats earbuds, and a “special edition” that includes over-the-ear Beats Solo headphones.

The HTC Sensation XL is one of the first few HTC smartphones that carry Beats Audio technology after HTC [...]

HTC Vigor Gets New Name as HTC Rezound

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 26, 2011

“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 [...]

HTC Ruby Poses for the Camera (Again)

by: Matthew SabatiniSeptember 26, 2011

Rumors have been surfacing about the new HTC Ruby, otherwise known as the Amaze 4G for T-Mobile. This 4.3″ qHD beast is poised to be released on October 6th. Not to mention, it’s packing slightly modest specs, with a 1.5Ghz dual core processor and 1GB of ram. As for the design, the leaked press picture displayed above is all we have.

In the category of the OS, the Ruby will sport one of the latest versions of Android 2.3+ Gingerbread. However, since this is an HTC phone, Sense 3.5 will be smothered all over this sweet Gingerbread cookie. And as if everything mentioned already was not enough, we can expect to see an 8 MP shooter on the back of this superphone. As [...]

HTC Bass (HTC Runnymede) Specs Leaked in Amateur Footage

by: Carl ParkerSeptember 26, 2011

If leaks and rumors are to be believed, HTC is putting final embellishments on its upcoming Beats-enabled, 4.7-inch Android smartphone said to be called the HTC Bass, also referred to in online circles as the HTC Runnymede.

Recent reports point to October 6 as HTC’s target for the HTC Runnymede/Bass release date.

Engadget recently found a YouTube video showing the device. The video leaks out some interesting spec details about the HTC Bass. Perhaps the most significant ones are its screen size, its zippy performance, Beats Audio, camera, and carrier that the device is potentially headed to.

Although the original video from YouTube has been removed, Engadget was [...]
