What we could be witnessing right now is a crossroads in the Windows universe. HTC may very well have made the step towards legitimacy the Windows Phone platform needed to show the world that they really, truly can compete with Android. In the HTC One M8 with Windows, HTC has switched out Android for Windows Phone in the greatest handset they've ever made, providing a new path of opportunity for Microsoft in the process.
HTC has something special planned for IFA, and it looks like it might be a 64-bit capable phone. Dubbed the Desire 820, it might be everything you want a mid-range device to be, with a big screen and massive battery. Additionally, it seems HTC finally has some wearables ready for us, maybe even one they previously dismissed.
Qualcomm has traditionally been seen as a mountain, mighty yet unmoving. The hype first around octa-core processors and then 64-bit CPUs have not spurred it into a frenzy like its competitors have. Now, however, the giant has woken up and is ready to unleash the Snapdragon 615, expected to stir up the SoC market with its 64-bit octa-core goodness.
If you’re looking for a bugdet-friendly smartphone that can keep pace with all the things you want to do in a day, the Moto G might be a consideration -- or one of HTC's other mid-range devices. To further battle the mid-tier front, HTC is announcing their Desire 510. The LTE handset offers a sizable screen and enough processing power to get you through, and won’t break the bank.
Your eyes do not deceive you, and no, this isn't a hack or a mock-up. The HTC One M8 with Windows has made its debut, launching today as a Verizon exclusive in the US, and as the name suggests it's the One M8 we're very familiar with, only with Android switched out for Windows Phone. The path to flipping OSes isn't as simple as the HTC HD2 might have led us to believe, however, and so I caught up with HTC to find out what was involved in making the first UltraPixel Windows Phone.
HTC has finally unveiled the successor to its line of Butterfly smartphones, the aptly named Butterfly 2. Sporting high-end specs housed in colorful cases, the Butterfly 2 is poised to be a more lively alternative to HTC's flagship, but will unfortunately take flight only in Asia for now.
We are practically just a day away from HTC's hush-hush New York City media event where the manufacturer is expected to unveil the newest and one of the very few non-Nokia Windows Phone device. But of course, there is always room for last minute leaks, including this hi-res photos of what the smartphone might look like.
HTC has been teasing Americans for some time with its mainstream line of Android phones, but the Desire 610 and Desire 816 are finally getting a US release. Part of HTC's strategy to flesh out its midrange - a gap in which the company blamed for its mediocre performance back in 2013 - the two phones had been on sale in various locations in Europe and the rest of the world before now, but will soon show up on Virgin Mobile among other carriers.
The HTC One (M8) is one of the better Android handsets available. For many, it’s the aluminum shell that takes the cake. What happens when you strip it away and add plastic, though? Is the device still a winner? The HTC One (E8) is trying to answer that question.
