According to HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie, a bunch of HTC One owners across North America will soon receive an update to Android 4.3. He just sent out the following tweet.
This news comes more as confirmation than as a surprise. Read More
The HTC One is getting on toward middle age, but it's still one of the top Android devices you can buy. What's more, you can buy it for next to nothing on Sprint. Amazon previously dropped the price to $49.99, but now it's almost free at just $0.01.
As with most Sprint deals, this one is only available on new lines of service. That means new accounts, or new lines on a family plan. Read More
Verizon may have just gotten the HTC One, but it's hard to call it a "new" phone. Other carriers have been selling the aluminum slab for a few months now. It's getting to the point where that on-contract price is downright reasonable. For example, right now the Verizon HTC One is $49.99 on both Amazon and Best Buy.
You can get this deal whether you're a new customer or you're upgrading an existing line. Read More
Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect. It's quite the ugly page, so we'll save you the effort of perusing it for yourself by providing the gist right here. After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One. Read More
If you're using a stock HTC One from the Google Play Store, check your phone's notification drawer. Go on, check it. I'll wait. If you're one of the lucky few, you may be seeing a special surprise in the form of a software update. At least one XDA Developers member got the update to version 3.07.1700.1 earlier this morning, though he was using a standard model One that he'd soft-converted into a Google Play Edition. Read More
The Droid DNA was sort of an unprecedented phone. It was the first device in the US to feature a full 1080p display – something that has since become the norm. But at the time, its 440 PPI was absolutely mind-blowing. While mobile technology has undoubtedly progressed since the DNA's release, this phone is still able to hold its own in nearly every situation.
However, if you're a DNA owner who has grown weary with Sense UI, good news: official CyanogenMod nightly builds are now available. Read More
The week is just getting started, but HTC is dropping new devices like it's going out of style. No, it's not that rumored One Max we've been hearing about. The company is breathing new life into the Desire brand with the mid-range Desire 601 and the entry-level Desire 300. HTC is also announcing a Bluetooth subwoofer accessory for BoomSound devices and a new "Vivid Blue" HTC One. Read More
The HTC Butterfly S is not too unlike the HTC One, just with a larger screen, a slightly more powerful processor, and a micro SD card slot. With its 3200mAh battery, this is a beefier phone for people with perhaps more demanding needs than HTC's flagship phone can satisfy. It still has 2GB of RAM, the same UltraPixel camera, Beats Audio sound, and the latest version of Sense. The catch? Read More
Five HTC designers including VP of Product Design Thomas Chien, R&D Director Wu Chien Hung, and Senior Manager of the design team Justin Huang (who sketched the HTC One's iconic design) have been interrogated and arrested under suspicion of expense fraud and stealing trade secrets following a complaint from HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang.
Chien, Wu, and Huang had planned on setting up a new design company focused on the Chinese market, intending to resign after receiving mid-year bonuses yesterday. Read More
