Google's Matias Duarte elicited some knowing chuckles when he revealed the existence of a wireless charging orb shortly before the Nexus 4 launched. Duarte came over to Google from Palm, which developed a similar accessory for the Pre called the Touchstone. The Nexus 4 Orb took its sweet time showing up in the Play Store, but it's finally on sale for $60.

Is there any universe in which spending that kind of cash on a phone charger is reasonable?

Since my introduction to Android (a la Nexus One), I've owned three HTC devices. I've reviewed probably a half-dozen others. I liked some of them, and I disliked others. But generally, I consider myself an HTC fan, especially since the One X.

The new One phone sounds brilliant. Ron's early impressions are promising. The initial response at large seems to be that HTC is finally being bold in a way that's causing people to take notice, by taking risks.

HTC may not be too terribly specific about when it intends to release its newest flagship, aside from a vague March-ish timeline, but Vodafone and Clove are more than happy to fill in the blank space: March 15th is the date. At least if you're in the UK, looking to get this piece of hardware on Vodafone, or order from Clove.

Not only does Clove's ordering site indicate this as the date the first shipments should come in, but Vodafone confirmed the date in a statement to AP.

HTC this morning officially unveiled its new flagship for 2013: the HTC One. So far, we've posted the full specs, our hands-on, and the list of carriers in the U.S. and Canada, but if you live outside those territories, you might be wondering exactly which carriers and major retailers to visit to pick up the One when it becomes available in March.

We've got the current list, courtesy of HTC, right below.

Greetings from New York! I’m here at HTC’s press event checking out the HTC One. Yes, that’s just the HTC One, the phone previously known as the M7 is all grown up and sporting the plainest version of HTC's "One" branding yet (which we are totally in favor of - Hopefully the carriers leave it alone).

But who cares about the name, what is the actual device like? We'll I've had a limited amount of time with it, but so far I like it.

There have been a few items in the rumor mill about Google either investigating or planning retail stores, not unlike the Apple stores that famously dot malls and upper-class shopping areas around the world. 9to5 Google reported a tip from "an extremely reliable source" citing a 2013 rollout schedule for a Google store. Then the Wall street Journal, itself a pretty reliable reporter of the inner workings of Google, reported the same thing.

If you really want Samsung's Galaxy Camera (our review), but aren't into the idea of being tied down to a carrier so you can take pictures, it's your lucky day. The company just announced the Galaxy Camera Wi-Fi, which quite frankly makes a whole lot more sense, anyway.

GC-110_1

Essentially, the Galaxy Camera Wi-Fi is exactly like its cellular-connected counterpart in terms of pure spec (and aesthetics):

  • Lens: 21x Optical Zoom Lens, 23 mm Wide Angle, F2.8 (W) ~ 5.9(T)

  • Processor: 1.4GHz quad-core processor

  • Memory: 8GB (including read-only sections such as Android operating system) + memory slot : micro SDSC, micro SDHC, micro SDXC)
  • Image: JPEG format  16M, 14M, 12M Wide, 10M, 5M, 3M, 2M Wide, 1M
  • Video: MP4 (Video: MPEG4, AVC/H.264, Audio: AAC); Full HD 1920x1080 30fps; Slow motion Movie 768x512 120fps

Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or availability, despite the fact that the PR states that the device is being "launched today."

All the HTC One hubbub in New York and London is for naught if you can't get your hands on the phone. So AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint customers in the United States will be glad to hear that their carriers are already confirmed to get HTC's shiny new flagship. Both AT&T and T-Mobile have reached out to us directly with confirmation, and Sprint is listed in HTC's official press release along with regional carrier Cincinnati Bell.

Our own Ron Amadeo is live at HTC's New York press event right now, where the company has just unveiled its new flagship smartphone: the HTC One.

Update: Our hands-on with the HTC One is live: Hands-On With The HTC One - Great Build Quality, Great Screen, Odd Buttons [Video]

The One is sporting a brand-new 4.7" 1080p LCD display, wrapped in an all-aluminum unibody housing that, I have to say, is genuinely striking - no other phone looks like this thing.
