02/04/2014, Its no secret that Android users often have to wait for a long time before OEMs released latest firmware updates. There are several steps involved in preparing an update for public release, which often holds it up for a long time. While HTC has talked about the KitKat roadmap for few of its devices, most presumably won’t receive the update till March or April. This is where the developer community […]
12/08/2013, The Android 4.2.2 update won’t get a lot of people excited these days, considering the fact that this release is quite old now. Android 4.4 is in demand these days, however due to fragmentation on Google’s mobile platform, not all devices support the latest firmware version. So there are still quite a lot of people out there who would be happy to see Android 4.2.2 pop up for their devices. […]
09/16/2013, Just last month, we reported the Droid DNA would be receiving Android 4.3 by the end of September. It looks like HTC President Jason Mackenzie may have jumped the gun a bit, at least in regards to the Droid DNA receiving Android 4.3 on Verizon Wireless as the carrier has just announced they’ll soon be rolling our Android 4.2 onto the device.
08/19/2013, According to a report yesterday, it seems that HTC’s flagship smartphone, the HTC One, will not be getting the Android 4.2.2 update. Instead it will be skipping that update and go straight to Android 4.3 which we’re sure sits well with HTC One owners who might be worried that with Android 4.2.2, they could be left waiting a long time for Android 4.3 to arrive. Now for those who were […]
07/01/2013, Verizon Droid DNA price has been slashed to $50. It was rumored two weeks ago that the carrier will run promos to clear inventory of the Droid DNA.
06/19/2013, Verizon is reportedly going to run store promos soon to clear out Droid DNA and Incredible 4G LTE inventory. This is apparently being done before it launches the HTC One.
05/15/2013, HTC said back in March that the HTC One was not coming to Verizon. However, the company hasn’t exactly flat out rejected the idea that their current flagship could ever be available on Verizon. In fact, questions about Verizon HTC One were dodged recently, further fueling up rumors that a model for this carrier was on its way. Wi-Fi certification has been awarded to a new HTC smartphone a couple […]

05/09/2013, We reported back in March that a successor of HTC Butterfly, better known in the U.S. as Droid DNA, will be released this year. HTC Butterfly is the international variant of Droid DNA, it touts a 5″ 1920×1080 full HD display, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quadcore processor with 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 8 megapixel rear camera and 16GB of internal storage. HTC’s Ben Ho had confirmed […]
04/10/2013, HTC has announced that the HTC One source code has now been released. Developers who have been waiting on it can now rejoice, as the source code can be used for creating custom ROMs as well as custom apps that only work with the HTC One. The company has a history of providing the source code for its devices, and it is no doubt much appreciated by developers. From a […]
03/26/2013, The HTC Butterfly, or Droid DNA for those in the US, was released just last year and unsurprisingly it seems that HTC is currently planning its successor. According to HTC’s Ben Ho, he confirmed that HTC is apparently looking to capitalize on the fact that customers seem to enjoy extraordinarily large displays for their phones, namely with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus G Pro. […]
02/04/2013, It was just yesterday when we talked about how US launch partners of the HTC M7 would include AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, with Verizon more or less holding back after the amount of advertising investment that they have put into the Droid DNA. After all, most of what you would find on the HTC M7 (on paper based on existing rumors anyways) would be more or less similar to the […]
12/25/2012, The term extra-sensory is used to describe something that is beyond or outside the ordinary senses. And it is probably the best word to describe HTC’s Droid DNA, at least for Verizon. The carrier has just posted an advert of the HTC Droid DNA on YouTube and it details some of the best features of the device.
12/17/2012, The other day we reported that Verizon employees would be able to get their hands on a limited edition “employee edition” of the HTC Windows Phone 8X. Now adding to the list of Verizon “employee edition” handsets which include the Droid RAZR HD/RAZR MXX HD, another limited edition device has been spotted and it is none other than the HTC DROID DNA, HTC’s take on the tablet and the first […]
