AT&T objected to Amazon using HTC for a low-cost phone
Android folks, what a wild ride this past week has been! IFA brought us ton of new devices, and many of them are really good. With the refined Note 4, the wild Note Edge, and the semi-bizarre Gear VR, Samsung showed why it’s the number one force in mobile hardware. Sony delivered more improvements to its Xperia lineup, and we really loved the amazingly thin and light 8-inch Tablet Z3 Compact. LG and Asus came with new and intriguing smartwatch designs, HTC went 64-bit with the Desire 820, Huawei went nuts (in a good way) with the Mate 7, and Motorola finally brought its 2014 lineup to light.
The new Desire 820 is the spiritual successor to the Desire 816 in a category that HTC calls premium mid-range. The 816 did really well in the markets it was released in, and HTC hopes for a repeat performance with the 820.
