HTC One 2 “M8″ expected as 2014 flagship smartphone

This week it's becoming clear that the company that set its sights on a single machine to turn around fortunes through the 2013 smartphone season will be bringing an HTC One reboot by the end of the year. It's not a solid announcement, of course, and HTC isn't saying so officially quite yet, but in addition to a reboot of the One that's lead the way through the past bunch of months, the company is being tipped to bring an HTC M8 to the public in 2014.

iOS 7 and the rebirth of iPhone

iOS 7 and the rebirth of iPhone

WWDC didn't give us a new iPhone, or a Retina iPad mini, but it gave us something far more important: a glimpse of the future of iOS. Opinions on iOS 7 are wildly divided, some iPhone users already converts to the lighter, flatter interface; others shocked by the changes; Android and Windows Phone fans quick to pick apart the elements they see as "borrowed" from their platform of choice. It's still early days - not to mention Apple still has a few months to refine things before the full release - but already I'm confident that iOS 7 will bring me back over from Android, not to mention open the door to some hardware surprises later in the year.

As the HTC One is confirmed for Verizon here in the United States, so too has an "HTC One Mini" been all but confirmed by a set of leaked up-close photos. These photos are either the work of a hardware tester or an extremely dedicated mock-up artist - as we're inclined to believe the former, it's become apparent that a new choice must be made for those waiting for their favorite amalgamation of HTC and Android. Should you pick up an HTC One now, or does it make more sense to wait for the ever-so-slightly smaller HTC M4?

HTC CEO: Exec changes and “narrowed” focus are right for us

HTC CEO Peter Chou has insisted that the company is still on a solid track, despite the recent spate of high-profile exits from its leadership team.
