The Google Play edition will begin updating a whole lot sooner.

T-Mobile HTC One Android 4.3 update pushed back to next week

The T-Mobile HTC One update bringing Android 4.3 to the smartphone has been delayed until Monday, with the smartphone company blaming matters "out of our control" for the postponed release. HTC had previously told One owners that T-Mobile would release Android 4.3 - as well as the updated version of its own Sense software - sometime this week, but unspecified issues have forced a slight change to the schedule, HTC America president Jason Mackenzie confirmed.

Context-aware and carrier-free: Google’s Rich Miner on tomorrow’s smartphones

Context-aware and carrier-free: Google’s Rich Miner on tomorrow’s smartphones

Smart devices that better understand context and might even be divorced from the traditional carrier deals are the future of mobile, Google Ventures' Rich Miner has predicted, teasing that the search giant's finance arm is almost ready to announce an investment that might help deliver some of the carrier-cutting intended with the initial Nexus project. Asked during the Mobilize conference today whether Google was considering rebooting its goal to push unsubsidized smartphones and relegate the networks to dumb pipes, Miner argued that the average consumer "still prefers a subsidized device" right now, but that Google Ventures is hoping to change that. "We've made an investment in one company that we're not going to make public right now" Miner revealed, "that is going to affect that space."

HTC One max Review

HTC One max Review

HTC should've had a best-seller with the HTC One. The metal-bodied phone was the go-to recommendation for Android fans in the know, and that it didn't get the attention of Samsung's Galaxy range is arguably more about marketing than anything else. HTC followed Samsung's example in distilling the brand for a smaller version, in the shape of the HTC One mini, and has now scaled things up with the HTC One max. A 5.9-inch display, metal body, and UltraPixel camera technology are arguably ingredients for the perfect phablet, but has HTC baked the One max badly? Read on for our full review.

HTC One Max: the final countdown

HTC One Max: the final countdown

But here in the days before the actual final reveal, we can move down the list with every little bit and piece we've been tipped to know. This begins with the most recent leak of the device internationally with a press render of the European version, complete with fingerprint scanner.

Lenovo HTC acquisition tipped to be in the works for months

Lenovo HTC acquisition tipped to be in the works for months

It's actually surprisingly common these days to hear about acquisitions of one major company by another, so today's suggestion that Lenovo is interested in picking up smartphone company HTC isn't all that off-the-wall. HTC hasn't been doing especially well in the profits department over the past few quarters, so acquisition rumors have appeared more than once over the past year. Here in the Fall of 2013, Lenovo has been suggested to have been in talks since August with HTC over a possible purchase.

Verizon HTC One Max appears ready for Winter

Verizon HTC One Max appears ready for Winter

This holiday season you may well be looking to grab the larger relative smartphone of the HTC One from Verizon, so says a leaked set of photos showing this HTC One Max with its much-more-massive display and the carrier's logo up front. This would be an odd move for Verizon as they waited until the DROID DNA - aka the massive Butterfly S from overseas here in the USA - to expire before they released the HTC One. It would be strange because the HTC One Max might compete with the HTC One - but then again, so does the Galaxy Note 3 compete with the Samsung Galaxy S 4.

HTC One Max release imminent as GCF approves

HTC One Max release imminent as GCF approves

Showing up this week in the approval bin for the Global Certification Forum is none other than the mysterious HTC One Max, a device that's about to be unveiled on a global scale with a look rather similar to that of the original HTC One. While HTC has not unveiled the device itself in full detail (or indeed confirmed that it exists at all), the large handset has appeared in leaks and rumors for several weeks. Inside this competitor for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a brain that looks to essentially replicate that of its smaller predecessors.
