HTC out in the open with Esports

HTC out in the open with Esports

Back a few weeks ago, HTC launched (publicly) their HTC Esports initiative. They're sponsoring Esports teams now, and they're being fairly open about it. Not that it was a secret, but given their relative lack of hard-and-fast connections (hardware) to the gaming universe, it's not immediately apparent why HTC would be doing such a thing. Today, HTC released a video by the by the name of "Rebirth: What Is Esports." Sounds like a bit of a play on the name of the camera HTC Re, doesn't it?

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! Now HTC's Mo Versi is chiming in and is actually confirming at least the former. Technically, he's just saying that there will an Android Maintenance Release (MR) coming in March. Unless Google surprisingly rolls out such a significant update between then and now, we can safely presume that this is indeed the rumored Android 5.1 release.

HTC confirms ‘new HTC One’ coming at MWC

After a series of leaked images and rumored specs, HTC is just about ready to unveil their next phone. In addition to those leaks and rumors, some have been quietly suggesting HTC’s newest won’t be called a ‘One’. While we won’t assume it’ll be an M9, HTC is revealing it’s a One-branded device. In a recent post to their UK Twitter feed, HTC says the new One is coming, and it’ll be here March 1. That’s when HTC is holding their MWC presser.

We may have already seen HTC’s rumored new wearable

We may have already seen HTC’s rumored new wearable

A while back, we got a solid look at HTC’s proposed wearable via a video. Sadly, HTC said it was just a concept device some in-house designer was working on, and we should all just forget about it and move on. We didn’t really buy it at the time, and now we’ve got even better reason not to believe HTC (aside form late software updates). A new round of leaked info gives more details on just what HTC might bring to the wearable table, and it smacks of that watch ‘concept’ we saw last Summer.

comScore: Apple, Samsung, LG gain as HTC sputters

Of the estimated 182 million smartphone users in the United States, just over half use Android, according to comScore. The analytics firm just released their year-end report, and it shows just over 53% of us are using Android, while 41.6% are using iOS. Microsoft still holds a 3.4% market share with Windows, and BlackBerry fell hard, dropping half a point to capture just 1.8% of the overall smartphone market. In the OEM market share race, things are getting interesting, but are still dominated by Samsung and Apple.

HTC’s silly video just ruined the HTC One

HTC’s silly video just ruined the HTC One

As someone who is lucky enough to see several modern smartphone slide across his desk, I can say the HTC One (M8) is among the nicest I’ve ever been lucky enough to toy with. Sense is enough overlay to improve Android, and the build quality is special. It’s that phone HTC is trying to defend in their latest video, and it’s that very same phone which makes that video so confusing. Rather than improve on their efforts, HTC is in attack mode, but why?

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: We can’t meet our 90-day deadline for Android Lollipop

HTC: We can’t meet our 90-day deadline for Android Lollipop

When Android Lollipop hit AOSP, HTC was quick to announce they’d be updating their handsets within 90 days. In fact, they were the first OEM to give themselves a deadline for Lollipop, saying “We have the Android Lollipop code. We’ll be updating the HTC One (M8) & (M7) within 90 days form today.” That was November 3. As February draws near, fans have undoubtedly been wondering when HTC would update their handset. HTC now says they won’t meet their self-imposed deadline, and offer no new deadline for Lollipop.
