We’ve known about the Desire 620 for a while now, but now HTC has announced that the budget handset—previously only officially available in Taiwan—will be available in the European market as early as January of next year (via Pocket-Lint).
Update: Versi has also now confirmed that the One M7 Google Play Edition’s update will begin to rollout, as well.
After a few weeks of delays and last-minute issues with Google, HTC this evening has announced that it will begin rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Google Play Edition HTC One M8 tomorrow. In a post on Twitter, HTC’s VP of Product Management Mo Versi confirmed that the update will begin to rollout tomorrow, December 5th at 12PM PT/3PM ET.
HTC released its One (M8) flagship in March of this year, so we’re probably only a few months away from the Taiwanese company showing what it has up its sleeve for the next generation (being called the “M9″ by some). Today, thanks to consistent leaker @upleaks, we’re being given an idea of what kind of power the smartphone is going to pack. And according to upleaks at least, the “M9″ doesn’t exist; this particular phone is being codenamed “Hima.”
The HTC RE is one of the weirdest looking cameras that we’ve seen released this year. At a glance it looks like a tiny periscope or a colorful asthma inhaler. Odd presentation aside, this GoPro alternative has some likable qualities, however its $200 asking price is likely to be a turnoff for frugal photogs. If that last line sounds like you, then you might want to listen up, because HTC is having a sale.
Android 5.0 is here and if you’ve invested in a Google Play edition of the HTC One M8 or last year’s M7, your respective device’s update is expected to land next week. This information comes from Mo Versi HTC’s vice president of product management who recently stated that his company was targeting a release time of next week.
Google’s all-new Nexus 9 announced last month has already been through an unboxing and overview video, hands-on review and head-to-head comparison with the iPad Air in the past few weeks, and now the HTC-made tablet has undergone a full hardware teardown courtesy of the team at iFixit. Take a closer look inside the Nexus 9 after the break. Read more
Last month, AT&T confirmed that it was going to exclusively carry the selfie-focused HTC Desire EYE and today the carrier announced that it will start selling the device on November 7th for $150 under a two year service agreement. Ma Bell is also pushing HTC’s new smartphone through its Next program for $22.92 per month (20 months) or $27.50 per month (24 months). However, if all of the aforementioned purchase options sound too complicated, you can just buy the handset with no strings attached for $550.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new tablet from Google. The Nexus 7 was released in 2013, but Google’s large format Nexus 10 has been growing old since its debut in late 2012. Well, the Nexus 9 seems to be a happy medium between the previous releases, and like it or not, it’s here to replace both of them.
Android tablets haven’t always offered the greatest experience when compared to smartphones, but there’s one word that perfectly describes the change this market needed: Lollipop. In my opinion, Android 5.0 is the best thing that has happened to the tablet space in a while, and the Nexus 9 is the first place you’ll officially get to see it in action. That being said, there are a lot of factors aside from a pure software experience that make the Nexus 9 a great device.
Welcome to our full review of the HTC-made Google Nexus 9. Has Google made a triumphant return to the tablet space, or is this just something to tide you over until another company steps up to the plate? Let’s go ahead and find out…
I’ve been an iPad Air user for a solid year. Sure, I’ve tried tried and reviewed other devices, but my go-to device for reading at night, some light work on the train or plane and just brain dead playing Facebook/Twitter/G+/Reddit/Email/Video chatting has been the Space Gray iPad Air 16GB.
Before the Air, I had used both of Google’s Samsung Nexus 10 and Asus Nexus 7 (2012) tablets and found them OK devices. The Google I/O version Nexus 7 power supply broke about 8 months in and I didn’t bother getting it fixed. The Samsung Nexus 10 was actually an under-rated device, in my opinion, probably mostly because the initial software wasn’t as polished as it should have been.
With every great smartphone, there must be a great tablet, right? Well, that’s particularly true for Google. Today we’re taking a look at the HTC-made Nexus 9. Will the Nexus 9 be tough competition for the Android tablet market? Only time will tell, but let’s go ahead and dive into the box first to see what it’s all about…
Google unveiled its highly anticipated Nexus 9 tablet yesterday and almost immediately following the device’s official debut, someone managed to run it through Geekbench for a benchmark. The HTC-made slate managed to pull down an impressive 1,903 single core score, which is on a par with an entry-level 2012 Mac Pro, according to Primate Labs founder, John Poole.
