There's money to be saved if you don't always have to own the latest and greatest flagship version of a product. For instance, if you head over to Best Buy's website or pop into one of the electronic chain's brick-and-mortar locations, you can walk away with the original (and still pretty snazzy) HTC One (M7) for a dollar, provided you ink a two-year service agreement with Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T. The discounted price is in effect today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) only, so if you're on the fence, you'll have to decide relatively quick. You'll also have to decide on a color -- the $1 pricing... Read more...
HTC is expected to unveil its new One (not to be confused with the current HTC One) smartphone during a press event in New York City tomorrow, which just might be one of the worst kept secrets on the web. That's because the One (codenamed M8) has been the subject of numerous rumors, speculations, and leaks, the newest of which is a 15-minute YouTube video with around 14 minutes of footage showing a gray colored version. According to TechCrunch, other color options could include gold, silver, and black. The gray version shown in the video sports a brushed stainless finish that looks rather attractive... Read more...
HTC may have seen better days, but that doesn't mean the handset maker is ready to throw in the white towel. Quite the opposite, rumor has it there are plans to launch a second generation HTC One device in a couple of months. It will feature a larger display than the current HTC One's 4.7-inch panel and also sport an upgraded rear-facing camera. Citing a "person with direct knowledge of the plans," Bloomberg reports the updated smartphone will have a twin-sensor rear camera. This would give the phone better focus when taking pictures, as well as improved depth of field and superior image quality.... Read more...
HTC has begun rolling out the Android 4.4 KitKat software for owners of the HTC One Unlocked and HTC One Developer Edition handsets over the holiday weekend, and in the process has started to make good on a previous promise to equip every HTC One device in the U.S. with Google's latest and greatest version of Android by the end of January 2014. Neither of the above mentioned smartphones are tethered to a specific wireless carrier, therefore they didn't need to go through a lengthy carrier certification process. However, that isn't true of the remaining HTC One devices in the U.S., which are offered... Read more...
My first smartphone was a T-Mobile G1, otherwise known as the HTC Dream. Not only was it my first, but it was also the introductory Android phone. It didn't take long for better and faster Android devices to come out, many of which were built by HTC. If you followed the tech scene back then, you would have seen stories about HTC posting record quarters with sizable profits. Those days are long gone. Fast forward to today and HTC, like just about every other smartphone player, is struggling to carve out a profit competing against Apple and Samsung, the two behemoths that rule the mobile world. Instead... Read more...
Gilded phones seem to be all the all the rage lately, with Apple having released a gold colored iPhone 5S and Samsung reportedly following suit with a golden version of its Galaxy S4 device. Well, it looks like gold fever has struck HTC as well, though unlike its two aforementioned competitors, HTC is planning go all-out with its golden makeover. HTC's U.K. division today announced the release of the Gold HTC One using real gold. The company produced the handset to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the MOBO Awards, and the winner of the Best Newcomer category will receive one of these limited edition... Read more...

Thank your lucky stars if your Android device is running the latest and greatest version of Google's open source operating system, because at the end of the day, you're at the mercy of your device maker and wireless carrier. That's why Google's own Nexus 4 is so popular -- it receives Android updates as soon as they're available. If you're an HTC One owner, you don't have much to complain about, and in fact we hear that the handset maker is starting to push out Android 4.2.2. Included with the update is a drop-down menu with quick options. Android 4.2.2 also brings with it some additional lock... Read more...
HTC has been struggling of late, but the One has been slowly but surely gaining plenty of steam. Positive reviews abound, and for those who love the hardware but aren't fond of skinned Android, today's the day to have a look at your new favorite smartphone. The HTC One with stock Android is now available to order in the Google Play store. It's essentially a Nexus version of the One, offering Google's take on Android alongside Beats Audio. The hardware remains the same, but the software is as pure as Android gets. At $599, it's certainly not cheap, but remember -- that's an unlocked and off-contract... Read more...
After some delays in manufacturing, the highly anticipated HTC One smartphone is officially here.  Although this high-end smartphone has not received the same amount of buzz as Samsung’s much-hyped Galaxy S 4, the One has many compelling features that will give Samsung some serious competition among savvy consumers. The HTC One features a full-metal, zero-gap unibody design along with a number of software features that set the phone apart, including a new home screen with HTC BlinkFeed, and HTC BoomSound which combines front-facing stereo speakers with dedicated amplifiers and Beats...

Android users in need of a high-end smartphone upgrade have a tough choice ahead of them. There's Samsung's Galaxy S4, which will be available on AT&T starting April 30 and at T-Mobile on May 1, and the HTC One, another promising handheld from a company that badly needs a win. Here's what we know about the HTC One's release dates. You can pre-order the HTC One through AT&T starting at $200 with a two-year service agreement and it will ship out today, arriving later this week. It officially launches on April 19th, though we've seen some local stores list the phone as being in-stock today,... Read more...
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Just two short years ago, it seemed as though HTC could do no wrong. The early Android adopter had doubled its earnings and had reason to believe the good times would keep on rolling, and though revenue had begun to decline by the end of 2011, HTC was still the envy of most mobile players. Fast forward to today and things look quite a bit different. Samsung and Apple are the top dogs, leaving the competition to feast for scraps. As a result, HTC posted a rather pathetic NT$85 million (about $2.8 million in U.S. currency) profit during the last three months. Yes,... Read more...
The durable HTC One is making its anticipated debut to retail this month and will come in two storage configurations, including 32GB and 64GB. However, AT&T posted a promotional video to YouTube that suggests the 64GB SKU is an exclusive, meaning every other carrier will only be able to offer the 32GB model, at least at the outset. Here's a look at the video (jump to the 27 second mark to see AT&T's claim): April Fool's Prank? Not likely. AT&T's exclusive claim on the 64GB model is not a point of emphasis in the video and is mentioned only in passing. It's also worth mentioning that... Read more...
