Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Just after T-Mobile brought their LTE version of the Nexus 9 tablet to the masses, Google Play released theirs as well. These two devices will be effectively the same, the only difference being - perhaps - that the T-Mobile USA version might end up loading some (deletable) T-Mobile apps once the LTE SIM card is activated. Both devices are on sale this afternoon, both online - it would also appear that both devices will share essentially the same price point at just under 600 dollars for a 32GB internal storage size unit.

HTC One M8 and M7 update to Android 5.0 Lollipop

HTC One M8 and M7 update to Android 5.0 Lollipop

This morning HTC has tapped in with final upgrade approval for both the HTC One M7 and HTC One M8 for Android 5.0 Lollipop. The first devices that will be updated are the Google Play Editions of both devices, with both the M7 and M8 seeing Over-The-Air updates this morning. The kernel sources for both devices with Android 5.0 Lollipop have both been approved as well, meaning we'll see Lollipop ROMs and unofficial builds aplenty very, very soon - once the hackers and developers get to work.

HTC Hima details leaked: replacing the One

HTC Hima details leaked: replacing the One

The HTC Hima's details have been leaked this morning by a notoriously accurate leakster by the name of "Upleaks", and the device is said to be coming by March of 2015 - and likely introduced either immediately before or during Mobile World Congress 2015. If past events are any indication, we might well see this device introduced in the first couple of months in 2015 then shown off at MWC 2015 while HTC Desire devices are revealed anew. Also, the word "Hima" is a code-name, not a final name.

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

It may be time for HTC to get rid of the UltraPixel name - and the technology - if today's anonymous sources are to be believed. The rest of the specifications shared this afternoon aren't all that difficult to believe. Just boosts in resolution, screen size, and processor power. The big difference here is in the change in camera - which anyone could have predicted, really. We're crossing our fingers that HTC has something more exiting planned than what basically amounts to a generational kick in the pants.

HTC Desire 620 mid-ranger appears ahead of schedule

HTC Desire 620 mid-ranger appears ahead of schedule

After the surprisingly almost premium yet plastic Desire EYE, HTC is back to turning the Desire line into its low to mid tier range. Based on this leak from Bulgarian site nixanbal, the next iteration will be from the Desire 6XX series, aptly the Desire 620. And incremental update to the line, the leaked specs show a growing trend in what constitutes the baseline for mid-range smartphones, which bodes well for would be smartphone users provided prices don't grow as well.

HTC One for Windows nabs an Xbox Dot View cover

HTC One for Windows nabs an Xbox Dot View cover

Today we're having a quick peek at the Xbox Dot View cover - a sort of limited-engagement release made specifically for the Windows Phone version of the HTC One (M8). This case works exactly the same as the standard HTC Dot View cover, but here you're getting it in Xbox Green. You've also got the Xbox brand on the back, for good measure. This case is part of a push for the HTC One (M8) with Windows this holiday season, coming with the device with Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile inside the United States.

HTC chops Re in half for Black Friday

HTC chops Re in half for Black Friday

Could a lower price leave the HTC Re making more sense? The periscope-shaped camera has only been out a few weeks, but that hasn't stopped HTC from putting it at the top of its Black Friday list. Variously maligned or misunderstood, the Re's odd combination of preview-free photography and wireless connectivity - not to mention its unusual form factor - hasn't exactly seen it set the camera world alight, though that's not to say it doesn't have potential. To drum up some business, HTC is hoping a price cut gets things moving.

HTC One (M8) screenshots show Sense 6.0, Lollipop

HTC One (M8) screenshots show Sense 6.0, Lollipop

HTC is on the clock about when they’ll update their One lineup, having already noted they’d push Android Lollipop out within three months of it hitting AOSP. If a series of screenshots posted to Twitter are accurate, they’ve already begun the process. Released to the world by @LlabTooFeR, the shots show HTC’s Sense sitting atop Android Lollipop. According to the ROM Developer, this shows Sense 6.0, suggesting HTC hasn’t made any changes to their home-grown Android skin to go with Lollipop.

Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

This Friday, the 21st of November, 2014, we'll be seeing updates to both the HTC One (M8) and the HTC One (M7) for Android 5.0 Lollipop. This is a bit of a delay compared to the original projected release date - early this week - but still jams in amongst the first in the industry to release such an update. At this time we're not entirely certain what the HTC One update to Android 5.0 Lollipop will entail, exactly, as it'll be the first in the industry to have more than just the basic Google-made Vanilla layout.

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

Windows Phone devices outside of the Nokia, now Microsoft, Lumia line do exist but they might as well be non-existent given the rather low profile they have. HTC and Microsoft, however, wanted to change all that and offer the platform's fans a truly high-end option. Now, the HTC One M8 with Windows edition has finally completed its US carrier round, rather quietly creeping into T-Mobile's online catalog. With HTC's admirable design and hardware, this smartphone could very well be the Windows Phone flagship, if the OS can catch up.
