Now here’s something you don’t hear everyday: porn video producer Vivid Entertainment alleges trademark infringement by HTC on account of the latter’s latest smartphone, the HTC Vivid. The phone company has been served a cease and desist letter from Vivid Entertainment.
Available as a 4G LTE handset from AT&T, the HTC Vivid may suggest a correlation to the porn giant. Vivid – the one that brought the world sex tapes of stars such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton – fears consumers may think the phone comes from it. As such, the company has sent HTC a cease and desist letter, demanding that the phone company change the name of the phone by November 21, or [...]
HTC recently announced its partnership with the cloud storage company Dropbox. With this partnership all new Android HTC smartphones will come preinstalled with the Dropbox app. And, not just that, owners will also get an additional 3 GB free for a whole year.
This deal will pretty much bump up your Dropbox storage space to 5 GB if you already have the free 2 GB upon signing up as a free user. One of Phandroid‘s readers has confirmed the add-on 3 GB on top of his existing free 2 GB of storage on Dropbox after installing the Dropbox app on his HTC Rezound.
Now, existing HTC user may now be asking if they can avail of this deal with their existing Android devices. [...]
HTC released the HTC Flyer as its single-core flagship tablet and the HTC Jetstream as its dual-core flagship. What about its quad-core flagship? A yet-unnamed HTC tablet bearing a quad-core processor is reportedly in the pipeline and scheduled for release at the Media World Congress (MWC) 2012 next year.
Taiwanese news site Commercial Times reports that HTC is planning to release a quad-core tablet, alongside two new Android smartphones, before Microsoft releases its Windows 8 operating system by 3Q 2012.
The HTC tablet will reportedly carry an NVIDIA chipset, presumably Tegra 3, which is NVIDIA’s quad-core processor. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich can [...]
If you think the HTC Rezound already beats the iPhone 4S to a pulp, HTC has another–and probably better–killer smartphone in the works. Codenamed as the HTC Ville, it will be one of the handsets to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012.
First reported by Boy Genius Report, the HTC Ville will employ a 1.5-GHz dual-core Snapdragon Series 4 processor, an 8-megapixel camera that is capable of recording 1080p HD video, and a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display. Support for HSPA+ connectivity is expected and a 1,650-mAh battery will power the device. Yet another feature to look forward to will be Beats audio compatibility.

A couple of months back, the folks at Pocketnow.com managed to stumble upon a list of HTC codenames for upcoming HTC devices. The site has published the list recently and assures readers that the list came from a reliable source.
Since the time they got hold of the 35-item ist, they kept mum about it and postponed publishing the list, as they entertained the possibility of the list’s inaccuracy or even authenticity. With the HTC Edge leaked out recently, it seems that the codename list has a certain degree of accuracy and reliability.
With renewed confidence in the list, Pocketnow.com finally made the list publicly available, and it contains the [...]
Not too long ago, rumors started to come out that we would be seeing quad-core tablets in the very near future. With that, a very special question came about. What about smartphones? Yup, them too. Despite hearing rumors about Meizu’s quad-core phones, our wildest dreams have become a reality. The HTC Edge might as well be the first quad core phone to hit the market.
Although technology is rapidly progressing, only 10% of computers are expected to be quad-core’s by the end of 2011. That is pure insanity! Users may be seeing quad-core’s in their smartphones before their computers. More specifically, the HTC Edge should be featuring the first Tegra 3 [...]
Back in October, two extremely hot phones came on the market practically unnoticed. Mostly, this was due to the fact that one was on T-Mobile (Amaze 4G) and the other was released on AT&T at the same time as the iPhone 4S was released. Despite their poor entrances, both devices have a lot to offer, and might still be two of the top Android smartphones on the market today.
Although neither device will have a screen like other rumored devices, if your looking for a new phone, rumors might just not cut it for you if you need a device now. In that case, take a look at the spec sheet below and meet me at the bottom for a full-on comparison.Spec-For-Spec [...]
