Samsung is at the ready with a brand new family of mainstream solid state drives, targeting the market segment previously occupied by its popular SSD 840 EVO series. The new Samsung SSD 850 EVO series is the follow-up to the company’s current flagship SSD 850 PRO, but the new EVO is Samsung’s first to pack 32‐layer 3D V‐NAND 3-bit MLC flash memory. The move to 32‐layer 3D V‐NAND 3-bit MLC flash (a.k.a. TLC) brings costs down, but doesn’t adversely affect endurance because the cell structure doesn’t suffer from the same inherent limitations of planar NAND, since the cells are stacked vertically...

It was about a year ago that we first took a look at the Samsung SSD 840 EVO series of solid state drives. If you recall, those drives featured a new controller and the latest generation of Samsung’s TLC NAND flash memory, which allowed the company to offer the SSD 840 EVO series at very competitive prices, despite their relatively strong performance. Those the SSD 840 EVO series of drives was originally designed for client-PC applications, Samsung has since evolved and refined the design and deemed it suitable for read-centric enterprise applications. The Samsung SSD 845DC EVO series of... Read more...

When it comes to Android updates, it sure feels as if the carriers get in the way. While unlocked, pure Google ("Nexus") devices seem to see updates nearly as quickly as Google finishes them, Android phones stuck on a carrier have yet another barrier of QA testing to live through. Sprint's phones have been seemingly held back forever when it comes to updates, but at least those rocking an HTC EVO LTE won't have to wait any longer before enjoying the spoils of Jelly Bean. Android 4.1 is being pushed out to the Sprint EVO LTE starting today, with the rollout to continue over a few weeks. In addition... Read more...
We heard HTC and Sprint were planning a follow-up to the EVO line, and now we have more details about what the phone will offer. Sprint and HTC officially unveiled the EVO 4G LTE which is expected to be the first HD voice-capable smartphone available in the US. The phone will be available in the second quarter for about $200. Preorders for the phone will begin May 7. The HTC EVO 4G LTE runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features HTC's Sense 4. This phone will have a 4.7-inch HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a... Read more...
When it comes to Android vs. Apple iOS comparisons, fans of the small green machine have a lot of ammunition they can lob at Apple. Devices tend to be more expensive, other phones often offer more advanced features late in the iPhone's upgrade cycle, and Android phones often have microSD slots for expandable storage. A recent investigation into long-term device support has shone a spotlight on one area where Apple products leave the Android equivalents eating dust: software updates. The situation is honestly worse than we suspected when we alluded to device manufacturers' being entirely focused... Read more...
Is 3D really the future? The jury's still out, for sure, but there's no question that it's been somewhat of a hit in the mobile realm. While 3DTVs may be moving slowly, the HTC EVO 3D (among other phones) seem to have struck a chord with users. Some may suggest it's all still a gimmick, but hey, some gimmicks sell! IEE, Inc. has integrated 3M's autostereoscopic technology into its field-proven, military-qualified handheld 4.8" control display unit (CDU). What's that mean for you? Perhaps, new glasses-free 3D smartphones. A close cooperation between IEE and 3M is facilitating the development of... Read more...
Looks like HTC has quietly slipped its users a spying app that tracks an alarming amount of user behavior and sends that data off to itself and perhaps others via a mysterious service in the cloud. The snooping app came nestled with the 2.3.4 Android update pushed out to some of its smartphones such as the Sensation 4G and EVO 4G. TrevE and Team Synergy of the InfectedROM site (and XDA fame), discovered the app. HTC includes an application called Carrier IQ and Carrier IQ recently added a user-behavior logging feature called IQ Insight Experience Manager. According to the Carrier IQ website: "IQ... Read more...
We've seen that companies who actively listen and respond positively to their customers always end up winning. It's the companies that ignore the obvious feedback that end up having to worry. HTC is one of those companies who have gone out of their way in order to address some of the loudest concerns of their users. Most recently, that has involved the bootloader. Basically, a bootloader unlock will allow users to install any other ROMs and themes on their Android phone without screwing with anything else. Loads of companies forbid this, largely because they don't have time to deal with potential... Read more...
Guess what? Sprint's got a new pair of HTC devices for you to consider. The company just launched the EVO 3D, America's first 3D-enabled smartphone, and the EVO 4G, which is yet another tablet option in an already crowded market. Both of these are going to be Sprint exclusives, at least for now, so if you're hoping to grab either, you'll need to also grab a Sprint contract. HTC EVO 3D, America's first glasses-free 3D phone will cost $199.99 and HTC EVO View 4G, the first 4G-enabled tablet in the United States, will cost $399.99. Both of those sums will require a 2-year agreement as well. While... Read more...
Although we knew HTC's EVO View 4G tablet and EVO 3D smartphone were headed to Sprint at some point, we didn't know an official date. Now we do: On June 24, you'll be able to get your hands on the HTC EVO 3D ($199.99) and HTC EVO View 4G ($399.99), assuming you're willing to commit to a two-year contract. Although June 24 isn't too far away, if you want assurance that you'll get the phone on launch day, you can preorder either of the upcoming devices by visiting a Sprint store. Current Sprint Premier customers will get the chance to purchase the HTC EVO 3D online three days before the national... Read more...
A new tablet, at a cellphone show? That's the truth! Sprint and HTC not only launched the EVO 3D today, they also launched the EVO View 4G, one of the first WiMAX tablets. It's a 7" 1024x600 display, with a powerful 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the latest version of HTC Sense, dual cameras (5MP HD camera + 1.3MP camera) and an aluminum casing. Other specs include a 3G/4G mobile hotspot, full-on Google service suite, access to the Android Market, Blockbuster on Demand, 32GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0, integrated GPS, a 4000mAh Li-ion...

Sprint's marketing campaigns over the past few months have focused on the fact that the carrier was the first to launch a 4G network in the U.S. Building on that, the company has focused on the various things you can do with a 4G connection that weren't possible (or at least weren't very usable) without a fourth generation high-speed mobile broadband connection. In keeping along with the "first" concept, Sprint announced the HTC EVO 4G—the world's first 3G/4G Android smartphone, would be available on their network. Although the EVO 4G may no longer be the only 3G/4G handset around, it is... Read more...
