Bionic What? HTC Releases “Raider” Smartphone, Features Dual-Core 1.5 GHz Processor And Support For 100 Mbps LTE.

  • September 21, 2011 10:14 am


Verizon and Motorola’s current flagship Bionic smartphone may be the cats meow thanks to the powerful trifecta — dual-core CPU + LTE + 1 GB of RAM — but its reign will be short lived. Besides the drool-worthy Nexus Prime we’ve heard about a time or two before, the newly announced HTC Raider brings its own brag worthy specs to the table.

Very soon South Koreans (sorry everyone) will get access to the Raider’s dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 4.5″ qHD IPS (540 x 960) display, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and support for 100 Mbps/50 Mbps down/up LTE (once the networks support it) as well as the “old fashioned” 21 Mbps HSPA+.

As we said above, South Korea is the only planned market for now. Though according to rumors around the web, AT&T could very well see a re-branded super phone here in the states in the not too distant future. Pricing: MIA.

Like the HTC Sensation and it’s dual-core 1.2 GHz processor but feel it could be…so much more? You’re in luck. HTC’s first official “Beats” branded device has been revealed to be the Sensation XE. As the name implies, the Sensation XE is a souped up version of the original non-XE Sensation as it packs a faster 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and of course, Beats audio. Other additions come in the form of 16 GB or storage (up from 4 GB) and a larger 1,730 mAh battery.

Look for the Sensation XE to start shipping around parts of Europe on October 7th for £410.

What If: HTC And WebOS.

  • September 12, 2011 11:56 am

As one of the (apparently) few people who had a thing for webOS’ sleek lines and heaps of potential, it saddened me when HP made the surprise announcement that they were discontinuing all webOS hardware. And then but a few days later comments from HP indicated they could once again re-open the webOS hardware shop later on down the road. Needless to say, HP’s stance is confusing as much as it is disappointing.

But there is hope for webOS aficionados. Rumors began circulating early today of a potential purchase by HTC. For a company that is so heavily entrenched in the Android culture and just beginning to take Windows Phone 7 under its their wing, it almost seems too good to be true. Is it?

Canadian And European EVO 3D Can Now Officially Unlock bootloader.

  • September 7, 2011 7:44 am


Sporting an unbranded European or Rogers (Canada) EVO 3D? Sweet action! HTC has just enabled official bootloader unlocking for the for the EVO 3D in the two aforementioned regions. Interested parties need only hit up HTCDev for the instructions and web tool. Something to think about before you begin: Even using HTC’s official web tool for unlocking the bootloader voids your warranty. Though it goes without saying pretty much anyone and everyone remotely interested in rooting/hacking their Android device cares very little of such things.

Let us know how your hacking endeavors go!

HTC Amaze 4G (Ruby) Spied, Specs Revealed.

  • September 5, 2011 2:08 pm


T-Mobile’s upcoming HTC Ruby has up until this point been shrouded in mystery regarding specs, with even its physical appearance not completely tied down — until now. Droid Sans has managed (Translated) to get a couple images of the device. What’s odd, however, is that while the specs all line up with HTC Ruby rumors, the device itself is branded “HTC Amaze 4G”. Regardless, we like what we see.

For those who can’t make it out: 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4.3″ qHD (960 x 540) display, 8-meagapixel rear/2-megapixel front cameras and Sense UI 3.5 laid atop Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) — sorry, no stock Android here. Given that this is a T-Mobile bound device, look for HSPA+ support — 42Mbps no less! — to come standard.

T-Mobile has already got a packed house with the HTC Sensation, G2x and upcoming Galaxy S II. Think the Amaze 4G deserves a spot in your pocket?

HTC Makes Radar, Titan Official.

  • September 1, 2011 3:20 pm


Today HTC took the covers off of two more Windows Phone 7 device, the Radar and Titan. The former (aka: Omega) features a 3.8″ 480 x 800 display, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and 8 GB of storage while the latter scores a behemoth 4.7″ display (also 480 x 800), 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, single-core 1.5 GHz processor and support for 14.4 Mbps HSPA+. Both phones will feature an updated IE 9 browser as part of the entire Windows Phone 7 Mango package.

Both the Radar and Titan are scheduled to start shipping around the globe this October, though the Titan is a definite shoe-in for U.S. users thanks to AT&T-compatible frequencies already on board.

Think Microsoft is doing enough to get people excited about Windows Phone 7 or are they still playing catch-up with last years hardware?

HTC Puccini Becomes The AT&T Jetstream. Coming September 4th With LTE!

  • August 31, 2011 10:57 am


It’s official: The HTC Puccini will be AT&T’s first official LTE tablet, however, it will carry a different name. Besides LTE, the “Jetstream” as it’s being called will feature a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear/VGA front-facing cameras, and Android Honeycomb 3.1. For a limited time after launch, HTC will toss in the Scribe stylus as well.

Data is pretty simple: $35/month for 3 GB of data.

Pricing is said to be “discounted” at $700 with a 2-year contract, though no mention has been made of how much said tablet will cost without any contract. Our guess — a full leg and half an arm. Maybe one day carriers and/or manufacturers will learn the only way to steal the iPad’s thunder is to beat it in price. Until then…
