As the HTC One was released in review unit form earlier this year, it became apparent that a cross-carrier release in the USA wasn't as cut and dry as it first appeared. The largest carrier in the United States, Verizon Wireless, was tipped to be considering releasing the HTC One on their 4G LTE network not only breaking from their original passing on such a release, but with an unheard-of lack of additional branding. While the HTC-made DROID DNA still sits as Verizon's hero device by that manufacturer, a deeply embedded code leak discovered this month may be an indicator of Verizon's push to bring the HTC One to its ranks soon.

Qualcomm sidesteps webOS acquisition questions

Qualcomm sidesteps webOS acquisition questions

Qualcomm has become the latest company to be questioned around its webOS intentions, with CEO Paul Jacobs suggesting at IQ2011 this morning that the platform is "a little up in the air at the moment" but not denying any acquisition possibilities outright.

Jacobs noted that they've got word that mobile data is expected to grow 10-12 fold by 2015, this punctuated by the completely odd addition of "Real D 3D" glasses on everyone's seats. Next Jacobs noted that 1 BILLION Qualcomm BREW-powered devices had already been shipped, and notes that "today's market [is one where people] don't really care about what their next PC is going to be."

Qualcomm Uplinq 2010 discount for SlashGear readers!

Qualcomm may not be a household name, but if you've bought a smartphone in the past year or so they their chipsets are probably already in your home.  The madly popular Snapdragon chipset has pretty much cornered the market in high-end Windows Mobile and Android devices, while the company's other ranges fill in many of the gaps left over.  SlashGear is off to Uplinq 2010, Qualcomm's mobile developer conference, to find out what all the fuss is about, but the company have offered us a deal for developers reading the site to come along too.  That's in the shape of a sizeable 20-percent discount on the registration fee.

HTC Smart BREW smartphone targets budget buyers [Updated with specs]

HTC Smart BREW smartphone targets budget buyers [Updated with specs]

HTC say their new, Qualcomm BREW-based HTC Smart offers a new, smartphone experience to the masses, and while we reckon the masses are doing a pretty decent job on their own ä press release is still pretty light on specifications - we're waiting to hear back from HTC for full details - but since it looks to be the same device as we knew as the Touch.B we're guessing it'll have the same specifications.

Update: HTC have come through with specs for the Smart; full details after the cut.

HTC Brew-based feature-phones delayed until early 2010?

October has come and gone, and rumors that HTC would launch at least one entry-level device based on Qualcomm's Brew mobile platform during the month have failed to pan out.  According to a DigiTimes report, that's because HTC have delayed the launch of their so-called feature phone range until early 2010, faced with "Brew's relatively immature application service platform offering for telecom carriers".
