HTC is rumored to be prepping a 5.9-inch phablet version of the HTC One

When things aren’t going well, sometimes the best thing to do is to break everything down and start from scratch. Focusing on one thing you’re really good at isn’t a bad idea either. That’s exactly what HTC did, by refocusing its product line on the excellent HTC One. But now that it’s off to a good start, what’s next? Well, why not gradually expand into other areas? Like, oh, maybe phablets?  Read More

HTC is reportedly prepping a Google Edition of the One, to join Samsung's Galaxy S4

Last week at Google I/O, some had been expecting a brand new Nexus phone or tablet. That didn’t happen. The closest we got was a pure Google version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The next logical question, then, was whether HTC would follow suit.

If you polled a roomful of smartphone pundits about the best phone you can buy right now, there’s a good chance plenty of them would say the HTC One. Hell, we might even say that. So it’s a bit strange to hear stories of the company bleeding top staff and continuing to hit hard times ... while simultaneously selling one of the most important phones of the year. Welcome, HTC. You've officially entered Bizarro World.  Read More

Facebook needed a mobile strategy. Now it has one. Mark Zuckerberg and company just revealed Facebook Home, an app launcher (home screen) replacement that will run on select Android phones. The social network also announced Home’s flagship phone, the Facebook-branded HTC First.  Read More

Facebook reportedly wants to invade Android home screens on upcoming phones

For the last couple of years, the “Facebook phone” has lived in a faraway land – along with the unicorn, the Yeti, and the Apple TV set. Though we’d still be skeptical of any reported Yeti sightings, your eyes won’t be deceiving you if you soon see the mythical Facebook phone.  Read More
