02/17/2014, Remember the other day an alleged render of the HTC Desire 8 handset was leaked? The handset was actually pretty impressive looking for a supposed mid-ranged device, which begged the question as to whether or not it was real. Well it turns out that the rendering of the device might have been the real deal after all, thanks to a recent post by HTC on Weibo which basically seems to […]
02/14/2014, The thing about Android updates is that it is typically subject to the whims of the device’s manufacturer as well as the carrier who might require approval before releasing it to the masses. A good way to get timely updates would be to get a Nexus device, like the Nexus 5, for example, but the good news is that according to HTC’s recent Reddit AMA with the HTC product team […]
02/14/2014, The last time we heard from HTC regarding Windows Phone handsets was back in 2012 where HTC released a handful of Windows Phone devices, one of them being the HTC 8X which we managed to review. Given that the handset is about two years old now, what does that mean for HTC 8X users once Windows Phone 8.1 is released? Will HTC treat the handset the same way when Windows […]
02/12/2014, According to our earlier report, HTC will be looking to launch mid-ranged devices in 2014. In 2013, the Taiwanese company did not exactly focus on mid-ranged devices, unlike in 2012 where we had phones like the HTC One S and HTC One V which were low-mid ranged handsets. Well it seems that HTC will indeed be keeping to their words, thanks to a recently leaked photo from Chinese website, MyDrivers, […]

02/10/2014, The other day it was rumored that HTC could be the company responsible for building Google’s next Nexus tablet, although we weren’t sure if they were going to replace ASUS for the Nexus 7, or Samsung for the Nexus 10, or maybe even be the manufacturer of the rumored Nexus 8. Well it turns out that thanks to a new report from DigiTimes, it seems that HTC could be taking […]
02/09/2014, Apple, despite not selling low-end handsets, is doing very well for themselves. Nokia on the other hand despite selling high-end handsets, has actually done better for itself by selling low-end devices like the Nokia Lumia 520, so which strategy should one adopt? Go high-end and get a higher profit margin? Or go low-end and capture a larger market? Well we suppose that would be subject to a variety of other […]
02/07/2014, Would it be more expensive for HTC to find workarounds for their devices in order to avoid infringing upon Nokia’s patents, or to sign an agreement with them in which HTC would pay Nokia in order to use their patents? Perhaps HTC has crunched the numbers and realized that the latter would make better financial sense because Nokia has recently announced that they and HTC have agreed to settle all […]

02/06/2014, It has been quite some time since HTC collaborated with Google on a Nexus product, and no, the “Nexus” experience providing Google Play Edition devices do not count. For the past couple of years Google has chosen Samsung and LG as its hardware partners. A new rumor originating from Taiwan claims that the next Nexus tablet is going to be manufactured for Google by HTC.
02/05/2014, HTC might not be in in the best of financial health at this particular point in time, but this does not mean that they are about to throw in the towel anytime soon. Having said that, HTC has mentioned that they have a feel good factor in the year ahead.

02/05/2014, Yesterday we caught a glimpse of a photo which is allegedly that of the upcoming HTC M8. Based on its design, it looked more or less like the HTC One except with dual LED flashes and a dual camera setup, however as the rumors did claim that the HTC M8 would be similar in design to the HTC One, we did not think much of it. However it looks like […]
