While everybody’s waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3 unveiling event set to take place in London in just a couple of days, HTC seems to be doing everything possible to steal some of that attention. Vodafone UK has just dropped the HTC One X and S prices on contract, and, if you’re looking to upgrade to a mid-range or high-end Android smartphone right now, you should definitely check the operator’s sweet, sweet deals!
Both HTC handhelds are available for free on two-year contracts and monthly plans now start at £31, for the One S, and £36, for the One X in white. Both plans are five quid cheaper than before, but they still include a hefty 600 minutes, unlimited texts, [...]
As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S3 fever is increasing as we get closer to the official unveiling, next week. While we still have very little in terms of official information about the future handheld, the PR guys at Samsung are doing a brilliant job of keeping us on our toes and gradually “leaking” details about it.
The most recent news we have to report about the “next Galaxy” is, believe it or not, official, and, even though it doesn’t refer to the phone’s tech specs, features or pricing, it should make a couple of tech geeks even more excited about the upcoming Android “beast”.
Vodafone UK and O2, the two biggest mobile carriers in the United Kingdom, have [...]
Vodafone like HTC and seem to love Android. They currently have a mini army of Android phones available, including the HTC Legend, Nexus One, and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Now Vodafone have one of their very own custom branded Android devices known as the Vodafone 845.
The Vodafone 845 isn’t in the same league as the aforementioned devices when it comes to the specification sheet. However, it is positioned right in the middle of the mass consumer market and packs enough to keep a wide audience happy; from teenagers through to older-folk. Not every needs cutting edge after all. The design of this device is appealing to the eye, [...]
This Dell ‘roadmap’ reveals forthcoming Android based devices from computer manufacturer Dell, including a rough timeline on when we can expect to see them materialise.
This particular visualisation of Dell’s timeline comes via AndroidCentral, and reveals two new tablet/netbook class devices called “Sparta” and “Athens”. Both devices are alleged to be around the 11” mark, but the Sparta is a tablet while the Athens is considered a 0.9-kilogram “True notebook”. Both devices come with optional 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth, powered by an an ARM based [...]

The HTC Legend is now available for pre-order on Vodafone UK, and other websites operating as resellers for Vodafone. The website quite clearly states that if you pre-order yours today you should receive it first, and it is expected on 6 April, which is a Tuesday. It wouldn’t surprise me if this ended up hitting your pocket by Monday or earlier. Vodafone as pushing the fact there is ‘Adobe Flash’ for ‘great looking websites’.
Want a phone you can make your own? Go for the HTC Legend. With up to seven home screens, there’s plenty of room to get things how you like them. And inside, there’s [...]
The Dutch version of the HTC Legend seems to be experiencing some problems in the Android Market and we’re not sure who is to blame. HTC have come right out and said that the restricted access to applications such as Skype and Layer is not their doing, putting the onus firmly with Google. Google are yet to release a formal statement, but it is probably unlikely that they are blocking these applications on purpose.
The HTC Legend itself is an attractive piece of kit. “The sleek unibody design with a brilliant AMOLED display and a brushed metallic finish, feels great in your hand and stirs admiration from those around. Along [...]
An article at Internet Storm Center published yesterday warns of Malware on the HTC Hagic. Panda Security came across the infection when one of their employees baught a brand new Vodafone Android device and plugged it into their Windows based computer. Analysis of the malware revealed that it was a Mariposa bot client. In a blog post at Panda Security, researcher Pedro Bustamante said, “Here is yet another example of a company distributing malware to its userbase. Unfortunately it probably won’t be the last”.
Bustamante noted that when a colleague/friend of his hooked up the Vodafone HTC Magic to her PC, their Panda based AV software detected both an [...]
Pretty much what it says on the label with this one. The coverted Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is officially due for release on Vodafone UK in April this year. This release date comes shortly after the news that it will also be available in Germany around this time with T-Mobile.
The Xperia X11 is a unusual Android phone for a couple of reasons. First, it is one of the largest devices to run Android as a smartphone, primarily due to the fact that it sports a 4” touchscreen display. Second, it also runs its own user-interface over the top of Android, somewhat like the HTC Sense UI. However, from our first hand experience with the X11 a few months ago, it is safe to say that [...]
