HTC has clearly been putting in considerable effort into its products' industrial design. For years, the company has churned out some of the most appealing flagship devices, running both Android as well as Windows Phone. As of late, the Taiwanese outfit has been struggling to turn a profit, and that’s despite a robust, well-received lineup of phones. In many ways, the new HTC One (known internally as the M8, signifying a followup to last year’s One M7) is a make-it-or-break-it device. The new HTC One M8 is, in many ways, a phone that pulls out all of the stops. It’s a creation that’s born from listening to years of feedback from users, and it packs just about everything...

HTC has clearly been putting in considerable effort into its products' industrial design. For years, the company has churned out some of the most appealing flagship devices, running both Android as well as Windows Phone. As of late, the Taiwanese outfit has been struggling to turn a profit, and that’s despite a robust, well-received lineup of phones. In many ways, the new HTC One (known internally as the M8, signifying a followup to last year’s One M7) is a make-it-or-break-it device. The company isn’t folding anytime soon, but it may be forced to rethink its approach to the market if the One (M8) can’t win over a significant number of consumers. Working against... Read more...
Details of the OnePlus One smartphone are here. The phone boasts terrific specifications and features while keeping the cost in check--there are two handsets, actually, a 16GB white one for $299 and a 64GB black model for $349--and they’ll be available in Q2 2014. There’s no compromise on hardware here. The One runs on a quad-core Snapdragon 801 (2.5GHz) chip with an Adreno 330 (578MHz) GPU, 3GB of LP-DDR3-1866MHz RAM, and the aforementioned 16GB or 64GB of storage. The 5.5-inch display is 1080p Full HD, and the rear camera is a 13MP Sony Exmor IMX 214 affair with 6 lenses and dual LED flash that can capture 4K video while the front-facing camera is a not-too-shabby 5MP. The 3100... Read more...
OnePlus is a company that’s looking to disrupt the smartphone market, and its flagship “One” smartphone is set to debut on April 23rd. Among the details that the company has been offering up little by little over the last few months, perhaps the most intriguing is the fact that OnePlus has partnered with Cyanogen on software. Thus, the smartphone will run on a CyanogenMod OS, which is notable in an Android-dominated mobile market. “What’s coming is one of the most popular mobile operating systems specifically developed for the best hardware, with a unique twist. The smartphone industry is ripe for disruption, and 2014 should prove to be a huge year for the future... Read more...
The Xbox One is more than just a game console. We know that may be blatantly obvious to many of you, but we want to drive that point home from the get-go. The gaming, home entertainment, and mobile/computing industries are vastly different than they were when the previous-gen Xbox 360 launched in late 2005. Since then, there’s been unprecedented intermingling, consolidation and integration across these markets and Microsoft took it all into consideration in the design of the Xbox One. Of course, the Xbox One plays games—really well, actually. With its updated hardware, more refined controllers, new Kinect sensor, and a wealth of developer support, the Xbox One is an excellent gaming... Read more...

The HTC One has become something of a comeback device for a company that has stumbled upon tough times. While the HTC First has been forgotten, the HTC One has received tons of praise from both the technology press and consumers alike. That said, one giant American carrier has yet to carry the phone, which has no doubt hindered its ability to truly rival handsets such as the iPhone and Galaxy S4 in terms of raw unit sales. That carrier is Verizon Wireless, and it's finally hopping onto the HTC One bandwagon. Starting August 22, the LTE-enabled, Android-powered phone will hit Verizon shelves. The price? $199.99 on a new or renewed 2-year contract. Otherwise, specifications remain the same as what... 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 price, which rivals any other flagship available today. So, you buying in?... Read more...
We're sure hoping that this is a trend. Just a few weeks after Google ushered in the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a stock build of Android, the company has taken the wraps off of a virgin HTC One. One of the best Android phones on the market will soon ship with Google's own take on Android. It's not called a Nexus device, but that is essentially what this is. The HTC One has been well-received, and this edition will surely please the hardcore power users of Android who wanted this hardware, but matched with stock Android and an unlocked bootloader for tossing their own ROMs on. The phone will support AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S., and will be priced at $599 for the 32GB model. That's unlocked and... 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 Audio integration. As the flagship smartphone in HTC’s line-up, the One features a 1.7GHz quad-core... Read more...

The HTC One X generated quite a buzz when the smartphone was first announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The initial announcement featured information and specifications for two versions of the phone, an international model built around NVIDIA’s quad-plus-one core Tegra 3 SoC (system on a chip) and a U.S. model powered by a dual-core Qualcomm chip. The lack of a quad-core model in the U.S. left some observers feeling a bit flat, but by going with the Qualcomm MSM 8960 HTC was able to support LTE in the U.S. Additionally; the MSM 8960 isn’t like other dual-core SoCs currently on the market. The MSM 8960 features Qualcomm's Krait microarchitecture, with an Adreno 225... Read more...

Antec announced the Antec One enclosure, a gaming case designed to offer solid features and performance for those on a budget--even a small budget, as the street price looks to be around $60. (Two special versions of the case, the One S and One S3 are forthcoming and will cost a bit less.) For cooling, the One can accommodate a total of 5 fans (2 are included) and features a perforated mesh design to optimize front-to-back airflow. It also supports water coolers.

Imagine being able to take a picture of a CD, DVD, book, or video game on your cell phone and then receive ratings and pricing information within just a few seconds. Now, with the new SnapTell Explorer application for the iPhone, you can do just that. This free application is now available from the AppStore. Jason Kincaid over at TechCrunch put this app through its paces and was pretty impressed, claiming the app correctly identified nearly everything he threw at it, including Xbox games, Pocketbook O’Reilly manuals, The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Wisdom, Kurt Vonegut novels, and a number of obscure books. What’s more, the app even IDed a copy of Civilization 4 even though it was covered with... Read more...
While Google's new version of its Mobile App for the iPhone has been warmly received, it appears, according to a report, that it uses an undocumented API, which would be a no-no in Apple's book. However, the use of the API results in a great user experience, so one has to wonder: did Apple let the app into the App Store because it was great, because Google is so powerful, because the NY Times pimped the app, or because Apple just missed it? As you probably know, the new version of the app uses voice recognition: no more typing in search queries unless you speak with a British accent, and the app is smart enough to realize when you are raising the phone to your ear to speak, and prompt you. But... Read more...
Mobile manufacturers launch star rating system comparing the energy consumption of chargers November 19, 2008 - Espoo, Finland - A group of mobile manufacturers has launched a common energy rating system for chargers, making it easier for consumers to compare and choose the one that saves the most energy. The star rating system developed and supported by LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung Electronics and Sony Ericsson is one of a series of measures being taken by the industry to reduce the environmental footprint of its products. Many consumers are unaware that chargers consume electricity when disconnected from the phone but left plugged into the wall socket. Around two thirds of the energy used... Read more...
Malware writers sobbed Tuesday as Microsoft announced that it will cease sales of its security product, Windows Live OneCare, as of June 30th, 2009. Instead, Microsoft announced that it would begin shipping a free product, codenamed "Morro," in the second half of 2009. The new offering will be less of a resource hog, according to the press release, which would obviously enable Microsoft to protect PCs in developing nations more effectively. In other words, they want to make sure they have some sort of product covering all the security holes in their OSes. But seriously, let's face it, the product never really gained a large market share, as it was buggy and performed poorly in various antivirus... Read more...
Well, as we discussed previously, if you don't know the answer, if you are not a technophile, ask one.A woman's husband told her that a raunchy photo which had been sent via email from his iPhone was the result of a glitch.  Not the photo itself; he admitted to that.  No, the pic was automatically attached, addressed and sent because of a bug in the iPhone.  Ahem.  The woman, not an expert in these matters, asked the following on the iPhone Support Forum:Please help! I took my husband's i-phone and found a raunchy picture of him attached to an e-mail to a woman in his sent e-mail file (a Yahoo account). When I approached him about this (I think that he is cheating on me) he... Read more...
Searching for useful information on a mobile phone isn't always easy or convenient. To help, Google's Mobile team released the Google Mobile App for the iPhone, complete with Voice Search and My Location features. With the app's voice search capabilities, you can perform a Google Web search using--you guessed it--your voice. To use this feature, you simply hold the phone to your ear, wait for a beep to tell you the app is listening, and then say what you are looking for.
