Verizon HTC One Remix Is Official, Coming July 24th For $99.99 On-Contract

Gigantic Verizon logo on the back? Check. Completely unnecessary Verizon logo on the front? Double check. That's the HTC One Remix, which is essentially the One Mini 2, if Verizon followed any sort of rational naming convention.

[New App] HTC Publishes Its Sense Keyboard On The Google Play Store

Apparently, segmenting your customized software into easily-updatable Play Store apps is a popular trend. HTC is the latest to get on board, presumably because the person who makes the keyboard work is tired of waiting on the whole Sense team to put an over-the-air firmware update together. HTC published extra language packs back in April, and now Sense users can get timely updates for the keyboard as well.
