HTC continued its road to recovery through the third quarter, but the according to the company?s latest financials it is a long road ahead. The Taiwanese giant has now recorded two profitable quarters in a row, following a string of losses for the 18 months previously.
The HTC One M8 has been getting the new EYE Experience software recently, with the update landing on the international variant and on Verizon and T-Mobile in the US. Last week, Sprint updated its One M8 with international Wi-Fi calling, but failed to include the EYE Experience, saying it would arrive shortly. Less than a week later the third largest carrier in the US has now been confirmed to be offering the EYE Experience update for the HTC One M8.
HTC's Desire 820 does a lot of things right. It is good looking, spec'd well, and is decently priced; but for some consumers it may be a bit on the big side. HTC, in its increasing efforts to fill the market with more and more devices is now launching a new Desire 820 Mini, atoned down version of its mid-range shows stopper.
Sprint is rolling out a new update for the HTC One M8 (and the One E8 actually), but it is different to the one other carriers have issued this week. Verizon and T-Mobile have both rolled out a new update bringing HTC?s EYE Experience camera software to their One M8 variants, but Sprint has not prepared the EYE Experience just yet.
T-Mobile got there first when it announced its EYE Experience update for the HTC One M8, but now Verizon is following suit today. Big Red has confirmed that its own update for the One M8 is landing today bringing the new EYE Experience software to its variant of the smartphone flagship.
T-Mobile has issued the EYE Experience update for its variant of the HTC One M8 flagship smartphone. The new camera focused software offers a slew of new features and launched on the Desire EYE two weeks ago, but will find its way to most HTC handsets in the coming weeks and months.
HTC's presence in important emerging markets is hardly big, especially in China where the brand is nothing more than a bit part player. However, while China is increasingly a closed shop, India (another country with a billion plus population) is still a market of opportunity and there is time for HTC to grow a presence. Launching three of its best smartphones in the country this week cannot be a bad thing if the company hopes to be a hit in India.
HTC has a huge update around the corner for its 2013 One M7 smartphone with news that Android 5.0 Lollipop will be landing on the device within the next 90 days. However, before that happens the Sprint variant of the all-metal handset is getting a rather more minor bump, a mere sweeping of the boards according to the US carrier.
HTC has reconfirmed its plans for Android 5.0 Lollipop in the wake of the software getting an official roll out this week. You may remember that the Taiwanese company detailed its roadmap for updating high end devices when Android L was unveiled during the summer at Google's I/O event. Now that Lollipop is imminent the company though it a good time to remind its customers what they can expect in the coming months.
HTC launched the Desire EYE last week, the company's latest high end smartphone that has a camera focused twist, namely a 13MP front facing snapper. That device also came with the EYE Experience software, which the company said would roll out to other smartphone in its range. However, it seems HTC also has plan to deliver other EYE handsets as well.
