HTC Butterfly S dual-SIM edition appears: One Up!

It's time to have a peek at the HTC Butterfly S once again, this time seeing how this DROID DNA-sized smartphone works with all the features of the HTC One along with not just one, but two SIM cards at once. There's a bit of a "must have" feature out there for much of the world outside the USA, and that is the aforementioned ability to work with more than on SIM card at once, holding both of these micro-SIM-sized cards under the hood at once as well. This device is also appearing this week for the first time in black.

HTC One 2 “M8″ expected as 2014 flagship smartphone

This week it's becoming clear that the company that set its sights on a single machine to turn around fortunes through the 2013 smartphone season will be bringing an HTC One reboot by the end of the year. It's not a solid announcement, of course, and HTC isn't saying so officially quite yet, but in addition to a reboot of the One that's lead the way through the past bunch of months, the company is being tipped to bring an HTC M8 to the public in 2014.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review

Now, then, with the Google Play Edition versions of both, we have the chance to see just how much that's true.

HTC 8XT brings BoomSound July 19th, ATIV Odyssey tags along today

It's not the most one-shot of launches, but it would appear that these brothers-in-arms from HTC and Samsung are headed to the market together to bring Windows Phone 8 to the masses this summer. While Samsung aims for a slightly more familiar face with the ATIV Odyssey starting today (online) for its 4G LTE-slinging US Cellular iteration, the HTC device will have to wait a bit longer. But what HTC brings to the party may just be worth that wait - the most powerful front-facing speakers on a smartphone in the market, only otherwise available on the HTC One (and the Butterfly S, of course).

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.
