Of the six smart phones on the market that run Microsoft's latest phone OS, Windows Phone 7, HTC designed and manufactures three of them. It's latest, and most expensive, is Sprint's first-and currently only-WP7 option, the HTC Arrive and it arrived at Sprint just last month. That said, the HTC Arrive offers a combination of Microsoft's latest and easily most impressive handset OS to date, along with a slide-out backlit keyboard and HTC's unmistakable design quality.  So there's at least a bit of differentiation to the product to pique the interest of thumb-texters looking at a WP7-equipped...

It's sort of surprising that this one feature gets so much traction, but it's true: copy and paste is a big deal. It's something that computers have had for years, but some of the most modern smartphone operating systems still lack it. Windows Phone 7 didn't ship with copy and paste, but it looks like that's changing. The HTC Arrive, which is the first Windows Phone 7 device to ship on Sprint's CDMA network, will indeed have copy and paste at launch. That very functionality has yet to come to WP7 phones on AT&T and T-Mobile USA, but this seems like a clear indication that the Arrive is only... Read more...
It was really annoying, despite all the snazziness of the iPhone 3G, that it didn't include a voice dial application built-into the OS. After all, most of the smartphones we had been using of late (mostly Windows Mobile) had voice dialing built-in.And while some never use voice dialing, in reality, for safety reasons, voice dialing is the only way to go --- at least while driving. And sometimes, for legal reasons, too, if the state you are in requires a hands-free setup while driving. If a cop catches you holding up your cell phone to dial, he may feel you are violating the hands-free law.When... Read more...
There are only a select few events in the PC hardware world that get hardcore enthusiasts truly excited. For example, when popular trade shows like Computex, IDF, and CES take place, there is a fair amount of buzz.  Also, anytime the major players in graphics release next-generation GPUs, things definitely heat up; or likewise when a hot new game hits.  Finally, when either of the processor big guns, Intel or AMD unleash new CPU micro-architectures on the world, you can almost bet on the community to come alive with enthusiasm. We're sure we've missed a few other momentous... Read more...

Last week, due to some unexpected circumstances, we were able to post a sneak peek of the RV770 GPU and ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card.  As our limited testing showed, the Radeon HD 4850 was quite promising for a $199 graphics card.  But we weren't able to tell the complete story.  While the initial benchmarks definitely looked good, there was a lot more to talk about in regard to the Radeon HD 4850 and the RV770 GPU at the heart of the card.Today we can finally spill the rest of the beans.  You see, AMD didn't plan to officially announce just one new Radeon HD 4800 series...

When AMD launched the RV670 GPU at the heart of the ATI Radeon HD 3870 and 3850 series of products, they received quite a bit of fanfare due to the product's  competitive prices, strong performance, and more manageable power profiles.  One of the main reasons AMD was able to bring the Radeon HD 3870 and 3850 to market with these attributes was because the company had migrated their GPUs to a relatively more advanced 55nm process technology.  Manufacturing the GPUs at 55nm meant they were more economical to produce, required less power than the previous generation, and could...

While attending an NVIDIA event yesterday in Las Vegas, we got a chance to snap a few pictures of a pair of brand new GeForce 8800M GTS powered notebooks.  If you recall, we previewed NVIDIA's flagship mobile GPU back in November - if you'd like more details by all means, take a look at the article right here.For now, here are a couple of pictures of Gateway's first FX edition notebook and Sager's NP5792...    More information on the Sager NP5792 is available on the company's website.  As for the Gateway FX, here's a snip from the product's official press release: GATEWAY’S...

What's "Naked DSL?" It's DSL you can get without having to have phone service as well. With more people going totally wireless phone-wise, it's a "tier" people want.A year after agreeing to offer a no-strings DSL deal as a part of its acquisition of BellSouth, AT&T has started selling high-speed Internet service without requiring consumers to buy regular telephone service.The San Antonio-based company added the DSL Lite option to its Web site Dec. 20. The new offering, priced at $19.95 monthly, allows consumers to connect to the Internet without having to also pay for a landline, as had been... Read more...
The onslaught of new product releases for the holiday season continues, with the launch of NVIDIA's nForce 700 series of chipsets.  Just in case you skimmed past the fresh link at the top of the page, we’re here to let you all know that we’ve just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features and performance of NVIDIA’s nForce 780i SLI chipset using the brand new Asus P5N-T Deluxe motherboard.  We compare its performance to the nForce 680i SLI and X38 chipsets, outline the 780i SLI’s new features, and talk a bit about the mainstream 750i SLI chipset as well.  Click...

The nForce 680i SLI has been at the top of NVIDIA’s chipset product stack for well over a year now, which seems like an eternity in this day and age of accelerated product cycles.  Although still a top-notch performer, and arguably the best choice for gamers looking to put together a system with multiple GPUs, the nForce 680i SLI is getting a bit long in the tooth.  This is most evident when you consider that current 680i SLI motherboards don’t properly support Intel’s sought after 45nm Penryn-derived processors.  Technically, the chipset supports the CPUs, but a circuit level issue...

Creative has extended the support for their OpenAL wrapper, dubbed ALchemy, to include functioning with their Audigy series of cards.  ALchemy allows software products that utilize EAX to operate under Vista without compromises in features or quality. “In Windows Vista, Microsoft has decided to remove the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for DirectSound and DirectSound3D. The HAL is the software layer that in previous Windows operating systems enabled an audio accelerator such as the Sound Blaster X-Fi to provide DirectSound3D applications with hardware accelerated audio. This enabled soundcards... Read more...
Take a look at the red-head standing over there.  If you're a regular reader here at HotHardware, you know exactly who she is.  That's ATI's adventurous and oh-so-curvaceous front-woman, Ruby.  And she's holding that 'Perfect 10' sign for a very good reason.  It's probably not the reason you're thinking of, however.  For a digital personality, she's definitely pretty darn hot; maybe not a 10 in our book, but pretty darn close nonetheless.  No, she's holding that sign not as proclamation of her hotness, but rather to give you all a hint as to what ATI has in store for the PC in the coming days,...
