HTC has been expanding its product lines of late and is likely to continue doing so with the upcoming Nexus 8 tablet for Google and a HTC smartwatch. However, before the company ties up those high end products, it is focusing on something a bit more affordable with the Desire 510, a handset it launched yesterday and has been showing off today.
We brought you news a couple of weeks ago that HTC is readying itself to launch its first 64-bit smartphone, but it would be a budget handset. Not much was revealed about the device known then as the A11, but it now seems that it will be called the Desire 820 and it will launched early in September, possibly even at HTC's IFA event next week.
We have known for some time that HTC is making a tablet, but it has been a long time coming as the so called Volantis seems to have been on the verge of launching for several months.

As was widely expected, HTC launched its One M8 flagship on the Windows Phone platform today, bringing one of Android's best smartphones to Microsoft's OS. The handset is available today running full Windows Phone 8.1 (Cortana and all), but is restricted to Verizon in the US for $99 on a two year contract and $600 off a plan.
T-Mobile has today started rolling out Android 4.4.3 to customers on its network using the HTC One M8 smartphone from HTC. On top of getting the full new Android experience users of HTC's flagship handset will also get a bunch of new features and functionality from the Taiwanese company. The patch is arriving as build 2.22.531.5.
HTC is really starting to beef up its smartphone line with a variety of devices as the company looks to get back on the good side of consumers after a worrying few years of decline. The latest to arrive is the HTC Butterfly, a handset that boasts plenty of flagship kicks but is much different from the company?s core handset, the One M8.
HTC seems to be entering a new phase of its rebuilding process. The company has already released a number of smartphones in different niches as it said it would
HTC is expanding its horizons later in the month by launching its HTC One M8 flagship on Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. At the moment the M8 is very much an Android device, one of the best in fact, but HTC sees a window of opportunity to jump on the growing Windows Phone OS.
