HTC Sense 4.0 previewed: Streamlined UI, 50GB DropBox integration, more

HTC Sense 4.0 previewed: Streamlined UI, 50GB DropBox integration, more

HTC has already said it plans to focus on quality not quantity with its 2012 range, but it seems the company has some significant software changes in the pipeline too with HTC Sense 4.0. The Android reskin initially offered a far more usable interface than the native OS, but Google's successive iterations narrowed the gap and HTC failed to keep pace with its own services. Now, according to some preview playtime by Pocketnow, that's changing: gone is the unnecessary heft, replaced with a pared-down UI, better typography and improved apps such as email and DropBox integration.

HTC: Quietly Blundering

HTC: Quietly Blundering

To say HTC is having a bad month is an understatement: share price ditching, outlook slashed and reeling from an embarrassing and unexpected defeat by Apple in the patent courts. The company that once led the smartphone segment has found its "Quietly Brilliant" message struggling to be heard above the crowd. The potential collapse of the S3 Graphics deal is just the latest stage of the company's ebbing momentum, though it can't blame the USITC entirely for investors' loss of faith. HTC lost its common Sense some time ago.

HTCdev Speaks: Compelling Coders, Fragmentation, More

The barrier to Android development is already low, but concentrating your efforts with one particular manufacturer can pay dividends. That's the message from HTCdev, HTC's "built by developers, for developers" outreach program launched this year. SlashGear caught up with Bruce Jones and Leigh Momii from HTCdev at Droidcon UK last week, the developer evangelism team's biggest public outing to date, to find out why independently cultivating coders could well be HTC's best strategy to stay relevant in Android.

HTC Runnymede, aka HTC Bass, leaks in demo video

What you're about to see is a video showing off the HTC Runnymede, a device which will be released in the near future complimented by HTC's newest business partner in Dr. Dre's Beats audio integration. This is a smartphone with a massive 4.7-inch display, a white front and back, and Android 2.3.x Gingerbread. We saw it first back on September 12th, saw a whole stack of specs the very next day, and a whisper somewhere between there and here noting that this device would be called "HTC Bass" when released to the public. Today there's a video of someone who happens to have gotten their hands on one, flipping it about and taking us on a tour of it's version of HTC Sense 3.5 for the camera.

HTC Rhyme hands-on

Verizon and HTC announced the Rhyme this morning, a 3.7-inch Android handset finished in a distinctive plum but offering distinctly mundane specifications. We've grabbed some hands-on time at the launch event, and while the physical design is good and the build quality decent, we're struggling to get past both the single-core processor and HTC's positioning. Read on for our first impressions.
