HTC Vive detailed: Valve’s VR headset team-up begins

There's a Valve-centric VR headset coming from HTC this year, and it goes by the name Vive. That's HTC Vive, a new take on the virtual reality universe. A headset that works with what HTC and Valve describe as Full Room Scale. This device combines the massive gaming knowledge of Valve, the user base of Steam, and the manufacturing knowhow and high-end craftsmanship of HTC. Just like HTC was early to the game with smartphones with Android, they want to be in on Virtual Reality right this minute.

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

The HTC One M9 is here, and it feels mighty familiar. The company’s new flagship, unveiled here at Mobile World Congress 2015, takes the premium metal unibody of its predecessor and slots in a new chip, new camera, and tweaks what has already proved to be a popular design. And, while it might be easy to discount the One M9 at first for being an evolution rather than a revolution compared to the phones that came before it, HTC’s argument is that such an approach is exactly the route it needs to take: refinement rather than replacement for its own sake. Read on for some first impressions.

Official HTC One M9 images & specs leaked on German retail site

HTC has already confirmed that it will officially reveal its next generation One smartphone at Mobile World Conference in a little over a week, but it seems like one German retailer jumped the gun and accidentally posted the specs and official images on their website early. While the product pages on Cyberport's site for the HTC One M9 have now been taken down, it just wasn't quick enough. The fact that it's this close to HTC's March 1st unveiling, and that retailers often some info early enough to have product listings ready, seems to improve the chances that this is the real deal.

HTC teases something HUGE, math geniuses can try

HTC teases something HUGE, math geniuses can try

As we count down the days to MWC 2015, it's natural to see companies kick their marketing campaigns into high gear, sometimes with absurd results. Take for example HTC's latest "teaser", basically a fill in the blanks game with nothing much in terms of clues. Of course, that's not going to stop anyone from speculating, or wishing, what it's all about. Given how things are going, it could very well be the rumored HTC One M9 Plus. Or an HTC Tablet. Or anything for that matter.

Android 5.1 in March, here’s what may be coming

If you've been following Android news, you might have been aware of whispers of an Android 5.1 update coming soon. There are even some amusing tips about an Android 5.2!

HTC Rap music video out of left field

HTC Rap music video out of left field

At some point in the past several weeks, someone at HTC gave the green light to MC D-Bruce and rapper Doc-G to create a rap song for their phone brand. There's a music video for the HTC One brand and an interview between the rapper and the HTC employee as well. This is something you're going to have to see to believe. Once you see it, you will not be able to un-see it, so see it at your own risk.

HTC delays Lollipop for carrier models of One M7 and M8

HTC delays Lollipop for carrier models of One M7 and M8

Rome wasn't built in a day, and some things take more than 90 days to make. After starting a new trend of transparency among manufacturers, HTC is now effectively breaking its 90-day guarantee. It has announced that it will take longer for carrier versions of its 2013 and 2014 One flagship to get their Android 5.0 dessert and it is explaining, though very briefly, why. And although one can't probably argue quality vs speed, some might ask why it took so long before HTC formally acknowledged the delay.

HTC Desire 626 gets it own set of leaks

HTC Desire 626 gets it own set of leaks

Though HTC is naturally putting its best foot forward with its upcoming HTC One M9, and the One M9 Plus too if you believe the rumors, it hasn't forgotten fans of its more affordable Desire line. Coming on the heels of other HTC rumors is the Desire 626, unambiguously a mid-range camper that is somewhat surprisingly running on a MediaTek chip, instead of the usual lower range Qualcomm lines. Don't let that fact discourage you, though, especially if you're an avid, or addicted, selfie taker.
