HTC Wildfire S hands-on

The HTC Wildfire S is the company's cheapest phone at MWC 2011, but it feels considerably better than the Wildfire it replaces.

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

The HTC Flyer is an anomaly. So far, stylus-driven tablets have either been bargain-basement slabs with resistive touchscreens and hair-tearing usability, or expensive Windows-based machines with slick active digitizers but software more suited to desktop than pen.
