Windows Phone 8X by HTC Hands-on

Windows Phone 8X by HTC Hands-on

Cumbersome name; classy hardware. The Windows Phone 8X by HTC owes its awkward nomenclature to a deal that might prove HTC's salvation and Nokia's frustration: the company has inked an agreement with Microsoft to make the 8X the "signature handset" of Windows Phone 8, after apparently convincing the software firm that the new flagship suitably "embodied" the OS' spirit. We caught up with HTC to spend some time with the 8X and to see if we'd end up similarly charmed.

HTC is happy about victory over Apple in UK

HTC is happy about victory over Apple in UK

Yesterday we mentioned that a UK court had ruled HTC wasn't infringing on a key Apple patent in the patent infringement row between the two companies. The UK court did uphold the Apple patent was valid, but found HTC didn't infringe on said patent. The High Court in London came to the ruling yesterday and deemed three other Apple patents invalid covering slide to unlock, multitouch, and a multilingual keyboard.

HTC One S launched in Taiwan with Snapdragon S3

HTC One S launched in Taiwan with Snapdragon S3

Typically these days we see different SoCs being used in phones due to LTE incompatibility, but the Taiwanese HTC One S may not be using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor due to a possible supply shortage, which would make sense: it’s a heavily sought after chip, used in several high-end smartphones this year. The Taiwanese model will instead use a Snapdragon S3 dual-core chip clocked at 1.7Ghz.

HTC One S Review

HTC One S Review

The HTC One S may slot into the midrange in the company's 2012 line-up, but HTC knows that it needs more than just average if it wants to reclaim its position in the smartphone segment. To do that, the One S delivers a slimline metal casing and ticks the big consumer draw elements of camera, screen and speed, with 8-megapixels, a crisp AMOLED display and 1.5GHz dual-core chipset brought out to play. Question is, does the One S deliver enough to distract from the heavyweight of the mainstream models, Apple's iPhone 4? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC One X Review

HTC One X Review

HTC needed to hit reset on its smartphone strategy. Lulled, perhaps, by several years of leading the Android device market, 2011 brought an incredibly strong push by Samsung and a growing mismatch between the agile software users desired and the bloated, over-stylized interface of HTC Sense. The HTC One X - and the One Series it leads - is the first of the company's attempt to reclaim its former position, a Tegra 3 toting powerhouse with a big screen, boastful camera and slick design. Still with the specter of the Samsung Galaxy S III on the near horizon, not to mention Apple's iPhone 5, the One X needs to do more than storm the spec sheet if it's to make the impact HTC requires. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

AT&T’s HTC One X lost the Tegra 3 due to LTE incompatibility

AT&T’s HTC One X lost the Tegra 3 due to LTE incompatibility

Android enthusiasts have been drooling over the HTC One X for months, ever since it was leaked as the HTC Edge. A lot of that had to do with the inclusion of Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 platform; at the time, it was the only smartphone we knew of that would get the screaming silicon. So it's no surprise that AT&T customers were a little miffed to hear that the American version is going with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU instead. But before you start a signature campaign to bring the "real" one X to AT&T, you might want to read this: it was purely a technical limitation.
