  • HTC One phone unveiled: behold the beauty
    Posted on February 20, 2013 by ewilkinson

    HTC One newest phone HTC One, the company's newest flagship phone, in silver

     


    We're already well acquainted with HTC's One X and One S phones, but yesterday, as CNet joked, the company unveiled "One phone to rule them all." Just to be clear, that's the HTC One, no additional letter required.


    This latest HTC flagship device may only have been unveiled 24 hours ago, but already the opinions, reviews and hype are adding up to a potential blockbuster for HTC.


    Gizmodo quipped that it's "exactly how you're supposed to build a phone," highlighting not only the device's sleek, lightweight design but also its top of the line screen and its interface which, though this is an Android phone, has some similarities to a Windows Phone.

    Let's talk about the looks: at 4.7 inches in size The HTC One boasts a beautiful and sleek aluminum body that's lightweight with a slight curve on the back. Its Gorilla glass 2 screen, according to Gizmodo, "is gorgeous." With a resolution of 1,920 × 1,080 and pixel density of 468ppi, we'd have to agree that it's one of the best out there right now.


    On the inside of this Android-powered beauty is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.7 gigahertz quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM and a 2,300 mAh embedded battery.


    Another feature everyone seems really excited about is the HTC One's cameras. The Front-facing one is fairly standard at 2.1 MP, but the rear-facer, though only 4 MP, is totally unique.


    As Engadget notes, "before you go apoplectic with rage – the company's magical new imaging technology means that the One's 4-megapixel sensor isn't the slap in the face with a wet fish you'd assume it to be." Rather, as CNet reports, he camera will better pick up light and will work better in the dark than rival smartphone cameras such as the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III."


    Another nice thing about the new camera on the HTC One is its "Zoe" picture feature, which lets you take photos as short video clips, with the camera actually starting a second before you press the button and continuing for three more seconds.


    "By scrolling through the photo gallery, shots come alive like something out of 'Harry Potter'," writes CNet. "In addition, collections of photos from a specific event are automatically collected and joined with music to create 'Zoe Highlight' videos."


    Like previous flagship phones, the HTC One also integrates Beats audio technology, and it's got dual front-facing "Boom Sound" speakers for a pretty great video-watching experience.


    We'll definitely be keeping our eye on the HTC One as it begins rolling out this March, and we can't wait to get our hands on one, or to start stacking up the accessories for the latest and probably best HTC phone to date.

  • In March 2011, a prisoner at the Beaumont prison from which an inmate escaped with the help of a cellphone last year has one of Texas’ worst track records for prison personnel bringing cellphones into the facility. David Puckett, aged 27 years old was serving his fifth year of a 30-year sentence for aggravated assault of a public servant out of Lavaca County in Texas.


    Beaumont Prisoner uses Cellphone to Aid in Escape


    Beaumont Prison Authorities haven’t said how they think Puckett obtained the smartphone he used to plan his breakout and meet up with a female admirer in Omaha, Nebraska where he was recaptured a little over week later.


    “There obviously is a big difference between an officer who is found with their personal phone in their front pocket because they forget to take it out, and an officer who has six phones and chargers taped to their stomach,” suggested an unnamed prison source.


    Data has shown that over the course of a 10 year period more than 1,100 instances in which Texas Department of Criminal Justice employees were accused of breaking prison system rules by bringing cellphones such as iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One S etc or phone parts into prisons whether intentionally or accidentally. Some of those incidents include from the database: A chaplain at the Cotulla inmate transfer facility in South Texas tried to sneak in his cellphone inside his motorcycle helmet. A phone was found lying in a flower bed inside the secured area at outside Waco; another guard’s phone was found left in a bathroom at outside Huntsville. Even prison guards aren't' impervious because a lieutenant’s phone was found inside a boot when he left his uniform boots to be shined by an inmate at a prison north of Lubbock.


    Well since this most recent escape escapade it's become a felony offense here to supply an inmate with a cellphone or a cellphone component. Texas prison employees are also forbidden by rule from bringing personal cellphones into a prison at any time. Texas State has also added additional security measures by “in the process of installing hundreds of video surveillance cameras which will assist in our efforts and serve as a further deterrent to individuals who are considering smuggling contraband into the facility.”

    National Weather Service to text weather warnings


    Smartphone users who find themselves in the vicinity of dangerous weather will get a text message from the National Weather Service. The NWS’s new Wireless Emergency Alerts system is designed to get weather warnings to those not plugged into television or radio. Warnings will be delivered for impending rough weather due to tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis, flash floods, extreme winds, blizzards, and ice and dust storms.


    The free text messages will be less than 90 characters and sent to later-model smartphones including  the Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, HTC One S, HTC One X, HTC One V, LG Optimus L7 as well as the Optimus L5 . The message will sound a special alert and then vibrate. Exactly which phone models will have system access is not yet known.


    According to Amy Storey, spokeswoman for CTIA-The Wireless Association (the trade group that helped set up the system), “These alerts will make sure people are aware of any impending danger and provide them with the information needed so they can be safe until the threat is over.”


    Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will offer the service nationwide. To start, AT&T will only offer it in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Portland, Oregon but plans to add additional markets soon. Apple will support the service this fall. It’s not yet certain if older iPhones will get the text warnings.

    If you’ve been looking for root access to SIM unlock your HTC One S without waiting for permission from your service provider or paying a third-party for it, we’ve got good news. There is a way to re-set your HTC One S device so that it can be used on any GSM service provider you choose.


    The key to SIM unlocking your HTC One S


    You may have heard awhile back that HTC Sensation owners had figured out that HTC had included that device’s SIM unlock code within the /dev/block/mmcblk0p6 block. HTC quickly got wise to their error and encrypted the actual SIM unlock code with a key generated from the phone’s IMEI number.


    Not to be out-maneuvered, some crafty developers have discovered a way to generate the SIM unlock code for the HTC One S. Users will have to use their phone’s IMEI number to calculate the encryption key, and subtract that number from the UN_Lock_clode inorder to get to the phone’s SIM unlock code.


    If math makes you nervous, here’s the Bash Script that automates the process.


    To obtain HTC One S SIM unlock code with Bash Script


    Root your HTC One S


    1. Download Bash Script zip file
    2. Extract unlock.sh file from zip to /system/ folder on HTC One S
    3. execute the .sh file directly from root explorer or open terminal emulator and run:
      su <enter>
      /system/unlock.sh <enter>

    To SIM unlock the HTC One S


    1. Once SIM unlock code displays on screen (also saved to /sdcard/sim_unlock_code.txt), note the number and turn off your device
    2. Remove the microSIM card from phone
    3. Insert a microSIM card from another service provider and turn the HTC One S back on
    4. When prompted, enter the SIM unlock code

    This root exploit can be used to get a free SIM unlock code for a rooted HTC One S. For those who don’t want to root their device, you can ask your wireless provider if they’ll give you an unlock key (usually after 90 days of phone ownership.) You can also purchase a SIM unlock code from a third-party source. It should run you around $12.
