Android history: 10 of the most influential and important Android devices

Android history: 10 of the most influential and important Android devices

Android's been around quite a while at this point (Google's Android turned 12 last year), and even Android phones have been around well over a decade now. And while obviously hardware like the HTC Hero matters in terms of where the platform got its start, and ones like the original Moto DROID mark its real entry into the marketplace in a big way, we think there are phones (and even A tablet) that are less remembered or less appreciated for their impact on the larger ecosystem.

After, when's the last time you thought of the Galaxy S2, or the HTC One M7?

[Update: OTA Link] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Is Being Updated To Android 5.1 Now, M7 GPE Coming Soon

The Google Play Edition program seems to have been mostly forgotten by Google and its hardware partners, but at least those devices that were released are still getting steady updates. The latest one to be blessed with Android 5.1 is HTC's One M8 Google Play Edition from last year. Users are reporting that the over-the-air update is heading out now, so check your Settings menu if you happen to own one.

The HTC One M7's Carrier Versions May, Possibly, Potentially, Get Updated To Android 5.1 After All

The HTC One M7's Carrier Versions May, Possibly, Potentially, Get Updated To Android 5.1 After All

Yesterday, HTC's Mo Versi, the Vice President of Product Management, caused a few disgruntled sighs from the company's fans and One M7 owners by announcing that the two-year-old device wouldn't get any more major updates, including Android 5.1. That didn't apply to the Google Play Edition version of the M7, which is still set to get 5.1 in April.

But it looks like the replies Mo has received have elicited the company to take another look at the issue and consider changing its stance. Users argued that Android 5.1 isn't exactly a major update and that it brings a lot of bug fixes to Android, and HTC heard them.

HTC Confirms One M7 Will Not Get Any More Major Android Updates, Including 5.1

HTC Confirms One M7 Will Not Get Any More Major Android Updates, Including 5.1

Starting with the One M7, HTC promised customers that it would deliver two years of updates. This promise came after the manufacturer abandoned its previous flagship early on, leaving the One X stranded on Android 4.2 long after 4.3 had hit devices and 4.4 became a thing.

But now, the end of the line has come for the One M7. Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi has confirmed on Twitter that the 2013 flagship will not receive Android 5.1, except for the Google Play Edition. That variant is slated to get an update sometime in April.

Hey, HTC One M7 (2013) owners on T-Mobile, are you jealous of your counterparts in Europe, or on Sprint, or those who use the Developer Edition?

Official TWRP Builds Now Available For HTC One M7 Dual-SIM, US Cellular LG G3, And LG Optimus Fuel

ROM flashers and root fanatics who own a few more obscure Android devices have new options this morning. Official, straight from the source builds of the ubiquitous Team Win Recovery Project custom recovery are now available for the unlocked, dual-SIM card version of the HTC One M7, the carrier-customized version of the LG G3 for US Cellular, and the LG Optimus Fuel. Wait, the what? Let me check my notes... yup, says right here, "Optimus Fuel."

Not ringing any bells here.
