HTC Athena gets older brother: Shift is company’s first UMPC

HTC Athena gets older brother: Shift is company’s first UMPC

Bless HTC.  While everyone had their eye on the Advantage/Ameo/Athena and its ever-changing name, they were quietly beavering away correcting the biggest criticism of the device: the fact that it ran Windows Mobile rather than XP or Vista.  Enter the HTC Shift, a sliding-screen device which runs - you guessed it - Vista Business on its widescreen 7-inch touch display.

 

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

CEO changes happen. Sometimes, the current head steps down for health or personal reasons. Sometimes, it's merely to give way to a younger generation. But on average, such high-level management shifts usually betray some problem that a company is scrambling to resolve, partly by changing the CEO. When that company is HTC and that CEO is Peter Chou, that might very well be the case. The Taiwanese OEM has just announced that, effective immediately, Ms. Cher Wang will be the company's new chief executive, bring perhaps hopes of a revived HTC.

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 Android 4.2.2 update fixing Zoe flood, Menu key, more

HTC has begun rolling out its Android 4.2.2 update for the HTC One, with owners in Europe, Taiwan, and other locations receiving the much-anticipated firmware upgrade. The software, which takes Android to 4.2.2 but also makes significant changes to HTC's own Sense interface, in particular addresses one of our lingering issues with the One: the ugly triple-dot "Menu" softkey which robs users of all-important screen real-estate.

NVIDIA SHIELD shipping shifts to July: it must be “perfect”

The reason for this change is said by the company to be relating to a mechanical issue relating to a 3rd party component.

HTC sees more top execs disappear as Facebook fouls First launch

HTC sees more top execs disappear as Facebook fouls First launch

HTC continues to lose high-level staff as its North American team gradually peels away the struggling smartphone company, with industry talk suggesting Facebook's Home launch strategy actually ended up undermining rather than supporting the firm. Chief Product Officer Kouki Kodera, in charge of HTC's product strategy, left the firm last week according to The Verge's sources, along with VP of global communications Jason Gordon. Meanwhile, phones that HTC has pegged its recovery on, such as the One, struggle to compete - in mindshare at least - in the face of Samsung and Apple's marketing budget.
