Despite its home court advantage, the good folks in Taiwan haven’t been able to get their paws on the HTC One S, even though the phone was rolled out internationally months ago. But that is about to change, as HTC has finally announced the coming of HTC One S for the local, and possibly, regional market. Aside from the delayed availability, the phone has apparently undergone some internal makeover.
Different from its international counterpart, which is sporting a dual core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, the HTC One S that will be sold in Taiwan will have a dual-core 1.7GHz processor instead. Even though it’s clocked at a higher speed, it is of the Snapdragon [...]
Some people use their smartphone to text, browse, watch video, listen to music, even — in the rare occasions — to make phone calls. But this guy right here was probably bored out of his mind or just didn’t really like his HTC One X that much. Can using one’s HTC One X to repeatedly hammer a nail be considered a crime against gadgets? If so, please notify the gadget police straight away!
To be fair, he’s probably just taking the concept of durability test to a new extreme level. And we’re not sure if it’s even real? If there’s anything we can learn from the video, is that the HTC One X won’t really make a good replacement for a hammer. And the other thing is [...]
Who says that nothing good ever comes out of a tragedy? Calling it one might be an exaggeration, but that’s probably how Sprint’s customers felt when they found the launch of the HTC Evo 4G LTE had been pushed back. Now that the debacle is almost behind us, in order to win back the hearts of many disappointed customers over the shipment delay of the HTC Evo 4G LTE, Sprint decided to ship an extra box to those who pre-ordered the phone and have been waiting for it to arrive at their doorsteps since May 18.
Inside the extra box is a gel cover for the HTC Evo 4G LTE. There’s also a note that says ”HTC and Sprint want to thank you for your [...]
Although Facebook’s IPO (Initial Public Offering) was called by financial experts a failure, Mark Zuckerberg’s monster company still has its sights set very high. With stocks falling and more than $17 billion lost off an initial $104 billion valuation, the social networking service might be looking to expand way off its comfort zone and into smartphone hardware manufacturing.
I know, you’ve heard the rumors before and you might already be familiar with the HTC ChaCha (aka the Status), or that rumored “Buffy” project that has been in the works for about a year. However, the newest report about the Facebook smartphone takes things to a whole new level.
We finally have good news for those AT&T HTC One X users out there who like to root and flash ROMS.
A member of XDA-Forums named grankin01 has come up with an unofficial way to unlock the bootloader on HTC’s uber phone. This is particularly excellent news, considering we have no idea if HTC is going to release an official bootloader unlock tool.
Grankin01’s method of unlocking the bootloader basically tricks the AT&T version of the phone into thinking it’s a Rogers HTC One X, a version that does have an unlocked bootloader. If you are proficient at rooting and command line, you shouldn’t have much trouble [...]
While just a week ago we were getting worried about the HTC EVO 4G LTE’s release, due to a customs debacle that delayed US shipments, the good news about Sprint’s new flagship are now coming in packs.
Less than 24 hours after the first units should have started shipping to those of you who pre-ordered the phone, the independent Android developers community has itself made the device more accessible to the masses.
That’s right, folks, there’s already a root method available for the EVO 4G LTE and it’s pretty simple and straightforward. The entire step-by-step guide on how to root (and unroot) the new handheld can be found on this XDA-developers forum thread, [...]
Sprint’s own take on the HTC One X, the EVO 4G LTE, should have started shipping almost a week ago, but the release had to be delayed due to an import ban. Fortunately, HTC and Sprint managed to get everything in order blazing fast, and, as promised the day before yesterday, pre-ordered EVO 4G LTE phones will start shipping today.
The news isn’t officially confirmed, but we have several trustworthy sources telling us that Sprint and BestBuy will cover all pre-orders made for the EVO 4G LTE by the end of the day. InsideSprintNow has been tipped about Sprint pre-orders, while the guys at AndroidCentral managed to get their hands on a leaked memo from BestBuy, saying that [...]
HTC, the makers of the One X, still the best Android smartphone around, have just revealed the complete schedule for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates for their devices. The roadmap shows the HTC smartphones that are capable of handling the latest version of Android, with most devices set to receive it towards the end of the upcoming summer season.
The update to Ice Cream Sandwich is hotly anticipated by Android fans across the globe, bringing new features to their smartphones including a revamped user-interface, home screen folders and favorites tray, new lock screen actions, improved text input and spell-checking, a unified calendar, improved camera [...]
Looks like HTC has done a pretty good job of dealing with the import bans of the HTC EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X, a major annoyance that has delayed the shipments of the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint customers.
After HTC announced that the problem has been partially resolved, it didn’t take long for Sprint to update its website and inform customers who have pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE that the kickstand-equipped phone will arrive on their doorsteps on or around May 24.
The carrier stopped short of announcing a new date for the nationwide availability of the EVO 4G LTE in retail stores, but we wouldn’t be too surprised to see more announcements coming from Sprint [...]
While many Samsung Android-based smartphones and tablets are still (un)fashionably late to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, HTC is doing its best to keep its customers happy and updated. Less than a week after the Sensation 4G has received an Android 4.0 official OTA upgrade, the Amaze 4G is currently enjoying the same refreshing treatment.
T-Mobile’s exclusive device is getting the ICS update right on schedule, as it has been announced for a while, which is yet another reason for HTC and T-Mo customers to be happy with their manufacturer and carrier of choice.
