HTC’s One X smartphone has been pictured in press-shot form, days ahead of the Android quad-core’s official debut expected to take place at MWC 2012, and complete with dedicated Ice Cream Sandwich control buttons. The handset, previously known as the HTC Edge and Endeavor, is expected to run Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0 on NVIDIA’s Tegra [...]
Now that we’re through the MWC hump, it’s time to shift focus. We’ve got our Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and HTC gave us the One M9 as expected. Motorola let loose a really good mid-range device, the Moto E with LTE, ahead of MWC, so that leaves LG to bring us a new Android handset.
Smartphones have come a long way since their inception;though the idea of a portable device with internet connectivity and calling features has been around since the 1980s, it was not well received until 2006, with Blackberry’s new devices such as the Curve and Pearl.
And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause.
Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet.
The HTC One M9 is coming, even if the company can’t quite get their existing handsets updated to the latest version of Android on time. Expected March 1 at MWC in Barcelona, the new flagship from HTC isn’t expected to detract much from their existing design language, instead iterating on a tried and true winning formula.
I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though.
When checking out a new app, you’ll typically see a disclaimer that your device must be running a newer Android version, typically 4.0 or better. Unless you have a newer flagship device, you might even wonder if you’re running a version that can support the app in question. With Google’s newly announced Android figures, you can probably rest assured; about 90% of Android users are on 4.0.
This morning the folks at Microsoft Garage have released the newest version of Next Lock Screen. This is arguably the first time the lock screen has truly lived up to its promise - bringing you everything you need in terms of notifications - to your lockscreen with great ease.
As we saw yesterday via IDC's numbers , Android is on a lot of smartphones, and many of those phones travel with their owners to work everyday. Google wants to put them to good use, and as such it has announced the official launch of Android for Work, which we previously heard about last summer.
Last year’s HTC One M8 was one of the hottest Android devices to be released, mainly because it featured a premium aluminum unibody in a slim package. With expectations among consumers rising, HTC has their work cut out for them to top an already good design with their upcoming One M9.
Google is expected to release the latest version of its mobile operating system sometime this month, and the company just published a fun video teasing the new name. Google traditionally names its products after sweet treats — KitKat, Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb, Gingerbread, etc.
Some say that I'm an Australian. And that as well as being an Engineer, I also enjoy a good game and my Android devices, currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 7. All you need to know though is I review hardware and games, write news, and manage the AndroidSPIN Facebook and Pinterest pages.October is going to be an exciting month, if the rumours turn out to be true.
HTC may have launched the One M9 already (yes, without the parentheses) but it's not done launching new phones. Not that we're certain about the HTC One E9 but information from @upleaks are usually accurate. And honestly, most leaks and rumors about upcoming HTC mobile devices turn out to be true so....
The incoming HTC One flagship — which we all assume is the One M9 by name — is seeing leaks spread around the web of late. Today is no different, and we’re now getting a pretty good look at what the next HTC flagship might look like in-hand.
While HTC fans are anticipating for the arrival and announcement of the HTC One M9 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress ( MWC 2015) in Barcelona next month, HTC is also believed to be working on a new variant of the One (M8) . Rumor has it that there will be a One M8i, a mid-range smartphone version of its flagship brother.
As we get closer to the time Google announces Android L , more and more rumors and reports come out about the upcoming Nexus devices, or the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 . Earlier this morning we reported about an article from WSJ confirming rumors of the Nexus 6. A couple of days ago, an HTC rep confirmed that the Nexus 9 exists and is coming.
This week we've had a look at what it means to be rolling with the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with a full Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. This isn't your everyday average upgrade - it's not like we're using the Nexus 9 that just happens to be branded by NVIDIA. Instead, this is the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the update, complete with NVIDIA's own apps under the hood.
