    HTC releases standalone lock screen app

    HTC said that it would be delivering more of its Sense software to the general Android market, moving some of its services away from being an all-in-one software. The company started the HTC Creative Labs team to focus on repacking certain software from the brand's UI so that it could be downloaded in app form on the Google Play Store.

    Microsoft's struggles to grow the Windows Phone platform have been myriad, but one of the main problems has been giving the consumer choice.

    HTC, the Taiwanese mobile phone giant, has had a tough time of things recently, with profits on the wane despite a number of fine hardware products available from the company.

    NVIDIA confirms the HTC built Nexus 9 for this quarter

    Samsung copies other companies and gets sued a lot. It is almost an unwritten rule of mobile tech, but every so often a Samsung court case where the company is accused of patent infringement tends to throw up some juicy information.
