  • 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.

  • Word has it that AT&T will take preorders for their Windows Phone 8 devices starting on October 21st. Microsoft’s official launch date for its new OS is October 29th, so AT&T and any of the other carriers won’t be letting them loose before then. According to The Verge, the Microsoft announcement will probably identify a market entry date for its devices in early November.


    AT&T will offer the HTC 8X, the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820, as well as Samsung’s Ativ Smart PC and Asus’ Vivo Tab RT tablets, all equipped with Windows Phone 8. The Lumia 820 will be available from other carriers, such as T-Mobile, but the Lumia 920 will be exclusive to AT&T.


    AT&T plans to carry additional HTC smartphones that run on Windows Phone 8. The HTC One X+ and One VX would be available "in the coming months."


    Recent market share data shows that devices powered with Microsoft’s Windows Phone occupy just 3.5% of the smartphone market. Microsoft updated its mobile OS in June, adding support for multi-core processors, higher screen resolutions and near-field communication (NFC). Window Phone shares the same source code as Microsoft’s Windows 8 desktop OS. We’ll see where Microsoft takes that connection in the future.

  • Pics leaked of updated HTC One X
    Posted on September 29, 2012 by ewilkinson

    Pocket-Lint obtained exclusive pictures of the HTC One X's next incarnation

     


    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or at least, that seems to be what HTC was thinking when designing their latest version of the HTC One X.


    The new device, called the HTC One X+, isn't official yet. But pictures obtained exclusively by Pocket-Lint at least confirm its existence.


    As you may have guessed from our opening statement, the new shots of the HTC One X+ look extremely familiar, and the new device is likely to be more of a tweak or an update than a total reinvention.


    The Pocket-Lint pictures reveal mostly superficial changes to the exterior design. Pocket-Lint called the new phone “virtually identical” to its predecessor, with the exception of its black color accented by red details, and the new “b” logo for Beats Audio. Screen size, shape, and everything else appear to be the same.


    That said, a lot more than just pictures of the HTC One X+ have emerged. As MobileSyrup notes, aside from the iPhone 5, it has been “perhaps the most-leaked phone of the last six months.”


    And if you put together the rumors and conjecture from all the different sources, you begin to get a pretty good idea of what the next generation HTC phone is going to be.


    It's expected to run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, feature a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and have 1GB of RAM, with 64GB of internal storage.


    Again, it's not a huge overhaul. And some, like TechCrunch, are asking whether “pushing out mildly-updated versions of existing hardware could put HTC back on its original, lousy track.”


    Still, it may just be that HTC have hit upon something good with the One family and have decided to hedge their betson the HTC One X+.


    But I guess we're all just going to have to wait a little longer to find out if the odds are in their favor.

    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.

     Wi-Fi Alliance ‘s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint program Will allow mobile devices to automatically connect to WiFi networks


    Someone is out there trying to make our wireless access a lot easier without charging us an arm and a leg for the privilege (or over-complicating the system.)  The WiFi Alliance just announced hardware testing of its WiFi-CERTIFIED Passpoint program. The program is designed to allow cell phones like the iPhone 4S , Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and the Motoluxe  and tablets such as the iPad3, Samsung Tab, HTC Jetstream, HTC Flyer and the Motorola Xoom to automatically find and connect to compatible networks in the area.


    The WiFi Alliance’s primary intention is to certify hotspots. The specification it’s using is the result of cooperation between service providers and equipment manufacturers, with the aim of creating an industry-wide solution for shared WiFi access and roaming agreements.


    Hardware manufactures like Cisco, Intel, MediaTek and Qualcomm have already received Passpoint certification. Once the hardware testing is complete, it will be up to the service providers to show a little spirit of cooperation.

    Android texting application Swype has been in the design phase for awhile, but its beta shows it has evolved into a sophisticated next-generation app with four-in-one keyboard and voice capabilities.


    Swype’s four keyboard choices and 55 language downloads


    Chief among the app's redesign is the option of using one of four kinds of keyboards:  traditional letter-to-letter swiping, while adding the ability to type with predictive text input, use an integrated Dragon button to speak the text, or rely on the old peck-and-hunt one-finger motion. Users can swap between any of the modes limitlessly.


    Swype’s new features also include next-word prediction that allows the app to build on historical usage, compiling every word a user enters in emails, texts, or other posts. Swype's 55 language downloads allow users to communicate in any language they can speak.  Swype can be installed on all Android based cell phones including the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S2 as well as HTC One X and Motorola Droid Razr 


    According to Michael Thompson, EVP and general manager for Nuance Mobile (the speech-recognition software building company that acquired Swype last October), "People use their keyboards every day in every way — so input needs to be fast and simple. The new Swype living, learning keyboard users in a new era of input, where the keyboard adapts to the user's unique way of communicating every time they swype, speak, tap, or write."


    The Swype Beta for Android is available for download via beta.swype.com. There's also an SDK for other operating systems.

    HTC  has just confirmed that a hardware problem is causing Wi-Fi connectivity issues with their HTC One X smartphone.  To verify if your One X smartphone is defective... simply run the Wi-Fi  squeeze test if the signal strength improves - it confirms that the device is defective.


    HTC confirms wifi hardware problem with their One X


     


    The company is obviously faced with a tough hardware problem. A software update isn’t the answer. This isn’t the first time HTC has had Wi-Fi signal problems. Awhile back its HTC Sensation suffered from antenna design problems.


    HTC has stepped up early and accepted blame. In a public statement a company rep said: "After investigating isolated reports of Wi-Fi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the Wi-Fi antennae connection points. While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future. HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation."


    This statement describes the production changes going forward, but there still doesn’t appear to be a plan for dealing with the defective phones already in consumer hands.  Everyone is covered by the warranty replacement protection, so if you think your phone has the problem, take it back to the point of purchase right away. Don’t let the warranty period expire.


    We hope HTC takes their corrective action one step further and provides protection for this defect to One X owners on an unlimited basis. What’s to say the problem couldn’t pop up in these phones at a later date?

    Due in part to the fact that Apple commands the lion's share of the worldwide tablet market  coupled with their lack of success with their Optimus Pad,  LG has decided to put their tablet development efforts to the side, and focus on producing Android smartphones that can stand a chance against some very serious rivals.


    Would you stand in line for an LG refrigerator?


    Currently LG markets a very competitive line of smartphones including the Optimus 4G LTE, Gossip Pro and the Optimus L7 


    LG’s Optimus Pad LTE hit the market earlier this year but it didn’t get anyone too excited. There’s a lot of competition in the tablet market, but Apple owns it. Even older versions of iPads outsell some competitor tablets. It’s good to see LG say “why bother?”


    According to a spokesperson from LG, the company is going to concentrate on developing Android smartphones that are more technologically competitive with the products like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.


    LG knows its stuff when it comes to home appliances and other types of electronics, but you don’t see people lining up to buy the latest in refrigerator technology. It’s time for LG t decide whether they’re in or they’re out.

     HTC CEO refuses to produce cheap cell phones As a means to energize sales


    HTC refuses to offer cheaper handsets just to boost sales.  Despite struggling to match the sales numbers of its competitors, the company is sticking to its strategy of producing only medium- to high-end handsets.


    HTC CEO Peter Chou defended the company’s strategy in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “We don’t want to destroy our brand image. We insist on using better materials to make better products that offer premium experience. Many consumers like that.”


    Chou’s comments come at a time when many industry watchers are beginning to question HTC’s strategy. Motorola and Samsung are capturing the low-end handset market in the Chinese market, but Chao insists that HTC will not manufacture “cheap, cheap phones” to boost its market share.


    HTC will increase its marketing efforts and expand its distribution network into emerging markets. Chou expects that 2012 Chinese shipments will reach three times last year’s total. Shipments to India and other emerging markets are steadily growing. Chou is adamant, “We think our strategy is successful.”
