As expected, the HTC Desire C is now available in the UK and will soon make its way to other countries across Europe. The HTC Desire C is the latest budget-friendly Android 4.0 handset from HTC. When you say budget-friendly, we’re talking about a free phone paired with a £13 (roughly $20) monthly contract which gives you 100 minutes, 5,000 texts and 250MB of monthly data. Anyone looking to buy the HTC Desire C off-contract can find it at T-Mobile and Orange for £169 while Three is looking to beat its competition by offing the handset for £149.
After months of leaks, rumors and dozens of blurry pictures, Verizon has officially unveiled the DROID Incredible by HTC. While we’ve seen quite a few spec variances over the past months, the official handset internals match up with some of the most recent rumors. Looking at the specs, Verizon’s DROID Incredible 4G LTE is a decent phone. It’s size matches up closely with the HTC One S, while featuring NFC and LTE connectivity like the EVO 4G LTE and AT&T’s HTC One X. Additionally, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE features a removable battery and a microSD expansion slot which will allow users to add an additional 32GB of storage to the device. It’s hard to say which of HTC’s four devices is better than the other since they all offer features which make them each unique in their own right.
Growing tired of HTC Sense 4.0 on your Tegra 3 powered HTC One X? Over the weekend, the Android development community managed to get CyanogenMod 9 and MIUI 4 up and running on HTC’s quad-core flagship phone. As always, the first versions of these ROMs are not perfect. CyanogenMod 9 is slow to connect to 3G and currently does not feature any camera or WiFi hotspot capabilities. On the plus side, the developers have remapped the buttons on the HTC One X so that the multitasking button now acts as the menu button. This eliminated the black menu bar which would appear across the bottom of the screen on applications which were not optimized for Android 4.0.
The international version of the HTC One S has been available for a few weeks already and now customers in the U.S. will soon be able to purchase the phone from T-Mobile when it goes on sale on April 25th. HTC was kind enough to send us a demo unit a few weeks early so that we could give you a detailed look at what to expect from the HTC One S. Early reviews of the international version of the HTC One S were favorable, but does T-Mobile’s software tweaks and HSPA+
The HTC One V may be the value proposition of the HTC One family, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be HTC’s entry-level handset for 2012. A press shot of the HTC Golf (rumored to launch as the HTC Wildfire C later this quarter) has surfaced, revealing a design very similar to the HTC One X . While the HTC One X and HTC Golf may look alike, their specifications are polar opposites. The HTC Golf is rumored to have a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 pixel display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 5 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0 and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.
The HTC One X and One S
The HTC EVO 4G LTE (we’re still getting used to the name) is finally here. If you have seen the software on the HTC EVO One X or One S, the EVO 4G LTE isn’t going to offer anything new for you. The handset features Android 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 4.0, ImageSense camera technology and Beat Audio. What makes the EVO 4G LTE stand out from the HTC One series is that it has a larger 2,000 mAh battery, a kickstand and HD Voice capabilities. We got some hands-on time with the HTC EVO 4G LTE at the unveiling event in New York tonight, and we thought we’d share some of the pictures we got and a quick video overview. The
Sprint and HTC are currently setting up for the HTC EVO One unveiling press event in New York city right now, but we thought we’d share a few pictures of the new One series handset to give you a quick peek at what we will be playing with this afternoon. DROID Life has managed to get some early hands-on time with the HTC EVO One, confirming the handset’s 4.7-inch 720p display, 8 megapixel camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.0.3 build with HTC Sense 4.0. The images they captured focus mainly on the back side of the device and prominently show off the HTC EVO One’s red kickstand, which is located on the upper portion of the phone. The design of the HTC EVO One looks a bit odd when compared to the sleek HTC One X and One S. While we’re excited to see HTC is bringing back the kickstand with this device, the two-tone back panel (glossy and matte) looks like it would make the phone stand out in a crowd, and not in a good way
It’s been a busy day for HTC. We typically have a few HTC stories to report on in a day, but we decided to group things together to make sure you don’t miss anything important. HTC shuts down htcsense.com HTC is sending out emails to htcsense.com account owners, informing them that the service will shut down while it undergoes “renovation to improve the services and value we deliver to customers.” HTC isn’t saying what will be in store for customers once the service is reactivated, but we doubt any user data will be retained since they are urging users to download their data before April 30. HTC’s online service has been available since the debut of the HTC Desire HD – roughly 18 months ago and we can’t wait to see what HTC will be offering once the service is back online.
