HTC has announced no plans for the IFA trade show this week, but some reports suggest the company will release its first ever wearable smartwatch at the event. However, Chinese leak expert @Upleaks says that HTC will skip IFA and will instead launch its smartwatch later in the month.
Sprint has confirmed that the HTC One E8 will be arriving for its customers and the handset is available now on the third largest carrier in the US. The E8 is in some ways a watered down version of the HTC One M8 flagship, featuring plenty of flagship specs but getting a plastic body instead of the M8's ultra-premium metal unibody.
A little late to the party maybe, but AT&T has finally announced that it is updating HTC One M8 devices on its network to Android 4.4.3. Of course, that still places the AT&T One M8 behind the actual latest and greatest version of Google?s platform, Android 4.4.4, but at least the device is catching up.
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. If any further confirmation was needed that this slate is real and is imminent, then a new Wi-Fi certification for a HTC tablet should seal the deal.
When the HTC One M8 launched on Windows Phone yesterday it caused a significant stir for all kinds of reasons. However, like other Windows devices, it was tied to one carrier, in this instance Verizon, with the general thought being that the M8 for WP was exclusive to the biggest carrier in the United States. However, it seems that is not entirely the case as Big Red?s big rival AT&T is also getting in on the act.
It has been another blazing day of mobile news that was largely dominated by HTC and its One M8 flagship. Just in case you missed the lowdown throughout the day, the Daily Burn is here.
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.
