HTC: 2012 “focus on the product” to avoid Nokia fate

HTC: 2012 “focus on the product” to avoid Nokia fate

HTC has insisted it is not another Nokia, relying on a "focus on the product" in early 2012 including "some worldwide flagship products" to restore its position in the smartphone market. Despite investors' negative reaction to HTC slashing its Q4 forecast last week, CFO Winston Yung is still confident the company can turn things around; "I don't think it's so serious" the finance chief told Reuters, suggesting that both LTE devices for the US and other products for the international market were on the cards.

HTC Chromebook in pipeline tip sources

HTC Chromebook in pipeline tip sources

HTC is reportedly considering producing a Chromebook using Google's Chrome OS, despite underwhelming sales of Acer and Samsung hardware using the cloud-centric platform. The new HTC - billed as an "internet-access device" - would differ in that the company is apparently looking to "combine the advantages" of Android and Chrome OS, according to DigiTimes' supply chain sources, though it's unclear if that means a dual-boot arrangement or something else.

HTC Edge by April 2012 but Samsung, LG, Moto readying Tegra 3 rivals

HTC's recently leaked Edge smartphone is expected to drop in March or April 2012 complete with NVIDIA's freshly confirmed Tegra 3 quadcore chipset, sources have suggested, but the company may be pipped to market by Tegra 3 handsets from Samsung, LG and Motorola. All three rival firms have already committed to using Tegra 3, DigiTimes' sources claim, while of course ASUS will use the new chipset in the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.

HTC EVO Design 4G Review [Video]

HTC EVO Design 4G Review [Video]

Here we have the *near* smallest smartphone to carry the legendary EVO namesake, and with a 4-inch S-LCD display with qHD resolution and price tag of under $100 right out of the gate, we've got to wonder if this is the perfect package for petite palms. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is powered by a 1.2Ghz single-core processor from Qualcomm, all inside a smartphone that's a scant 4.80 x 2.40 x 0.50 inches in size. It's tall, it's substantial, and it's made to be your everyday hand-sized EVO at an inexpensive price.

Acer and ASUS opt into Tizen; HTC ponders say sources

Acer and ASUS opt into Tizen; HTC ponders say sources

Tizen, the platform that gobbled up MeeGo, may only be a few days old but already it's reportedly gaining support from new companies including ASUS and Acer. The firms are each apparently set to add Tizen development to their engineer's workload, DigiTimes' sources claim, with HTC said to be "currently evaluating its decision." The shift in OS focus will mean that ASUS and Acer's existing MeeGo device plans are put on ice, it's suggested.

HTC bypasses Apple patent ire for 2012 Android range

HTC bypasses Apple patent ire for 2012 Android range

HTC has reportedly developed workaround technologies for those systems the ITC deemed infringed on Apple's patents, and will shift its 2012 smartphone range to the new solutions no matter the outcome of its appeal. The company has called on help from component suppliers as well as software and firmware providers, DigiTimes reports, in an attempt to limit liability - should the ITC's preliminary judgement be upheld - to the last generation of handsets developed in 2011.

HTC calls out Apple for competing in courts, not on products

HTC calls out Apple for competing in courts, not on products

HTC has officially commented on yesterday's news that Apple has added a fresh batch of patent infringement allegations to the ongoing legal action between the two companies, telling SlashGear that it "vehemently denies" all of Apple's claims. "HTC is dismayed" the company's general counsel, Grace Lei says, "that Apple has resorted to competition in the courts rather than the market place." As expected, the second set of claims detail HTC's more recent devices, including the EVO 4G and HTC Flyer tablet.

Nokia Rebooted: Apple lessons, HTC threats & Symbian’s last stand

Nokia Rebooted: Apple lessons, HTC threats & Symbian’s last stand

Leaner, tighter-lipped and very much aware of what's at stake. Nokia may be a lot of things, but naive isn't one of them. With a share price gutted by dreary financial predictions, and a quarter or two before the first Windows Phone devices are expected to do anything to change that, right now the only headlines tend to be bad ones: redundancies, reductions and generally biding time. SlashGear met with Nokia's new UK team at what - though they were careful not to bill it as such - was in effect a corporate reboot, to talk lessons learned from Apple, the threat to HTC and why Symbian won't go quietly into the night.
