Microsoft and HTC battle Apple with iPad and iPhone trade-in programs

Microsoft and HTC battle Apple with iPad and iPhone trade-in programs

Though it's not immediately clear what Microsoft and HTC are doing with the devices they're taking in trade, they've both made clear this week that they're not about to let Apple have all the fun with an upgrade program for devices. Microsoft has launched a program specific to iPads and their own Surface tablets this week, noting that they'll be giving at least $199 for any iPad that's in generally OK working condition - in store credit, of course. Meanwhile HTC is accepting basically any smartphone you could possibly have, but are (starting this week as well), making sure their trade-in program centers on the iPhone and their own HTC One.

Blue HTC One release a Best Buy exclusive in the USA

Those planning on heading in to their local mobile carrier this week to pick up the HTC One in Metallic Blue had better think twice: this device is coming to Best Buy exclusively inside the USA.

The folks at HTC have suggested that special pricing will be in effect this weekend as the Blue HTC One kicks off as a color exclusive for Best Buy this Sunday.

iPhone with 6-inch display tipped for testing at Apple

iPhone with 6-inch display tipped for testing at Apple

Just as Apple is set to show of their next round of iPhone devices with 4-inch displays - like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, for example - word has it that they're in testing with handsets as large as 6-inches. A report from the the Wall Street Journal today suggests that sources familiar with the matter have informed them of Apple testing displays for iPhones anywhere from 4.8-inches all the way up to 6-inches diagonally. This would place Apple squarely up against the likes of the HTC One (with it's 4.7-inch display) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (with it's 5.7-inch display) for a battle that wont begin until next year (at the very soonest).

Alcatel One Touch Hero brings Note-like stylus, E Ink case, and pico projector

In what must be IFA 2013's best candidate for "Jack of All Trades" smartphone device is the ALCATEL ONE TOUCH HERO (all in caps, to be proper), with a built-in stylus, E Ink cover, and Pico Projector accessory. This device is like a cherry-picked do-it-all smartphone made to take on every odd ability smartphones have been graced with over the past two years. Alcatel presents in the HERO a device that - believe it or not - may just be able to live up to its name.

HTC Desire 300 plays on entry-level wants and needs

The team at HTC are bringing a collection of smart devices to IFA 2013 this week, the lowest-end of the bunch coming in as the HTC Desire 300. This device brings on some of the features included with the hero device HTC One including HTC BlinkFeed - an element of the user interface formerly called HTC Sense (though not quite so readily titled as such these days). This device is not meant to be a low-level replacement for the HTC One, rather it's here to present the most minimalistic vision of the ideal smartphone HTC is able to create.

HTC One Max toys with fingerprint sensor in leaked images

HTC One Max toys with fingerprint sensor in leaked images

While it's not entirely unlikely that the HTC One Max (still not confirmed to exist in and of itself) would be delivered with a fingerprint scanner aboard, images appearing today appear slightly less finalized than past iterations. What we're seeing in the HTC One Max thus far is a test phone, one aimed at the "phablet" range of devices also being attacked at the moment by the Samsung Galaxy Note, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and the Samsung Galaxy Mega - a 6.3-inch phone released internationally and just today confirmed for several USA-based carriers. Today's HTC One Max leak includes several pogo-pins for docked charging and a black block suggested by photo source ePrice as a fingerprint reading sensor.
