HTC christened its new series of HTC One Androids today with the announcements of the One X, One S, and One V. While the X and S are arguably the stars of the show, especially with the One X and its quad-core performance, the One V still managed to make a strong showing as the smaller, budget-targeted alternative.
The One V is crafted from a block of aluminum, just like the classic HTC Legend with which it shares many design cues. We’ve got the same large, angled base, only we’ve lost the Legend’s optical mouse, leaving it looking a bit sparse. HTC’s also [...]
Nokia shocked the wireless industry early today by introducing a smartphone whose camera features an unprecedented 41-megapixel sensor. The Nokia 808 PureView, as it’s known, is a Symbian Belle-powered handset with four-inch nHD ClearBlack AMOLED display, 16GB of storage, and class 10 pentaband HSDPA broadband data. And while the camera is capabale of capturing humongous images, the purpose of all those pixels is to bring more detail to smaller five- and eight-megapixel shots. The PureVieW sensor is said to pack the equivalent of seven pixels into one, enabling tight digital [...]
Virgin Mobile will carry the HTC One V later this year, we’ve learned. One of three handsets introduced by HTC at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress late last month, the One V is a 1GHz-powered, Android 4.0-based handset sporting a 3.7-inch, WVGA display, 512MB/4GB of RAM/ROM, and skinned with Sense 4.0. The One V will join other Androids on Virgin such as the recently-announced Venture and upcoming Chaser and LG Optimus Elite (also headed to Sprint).
Virgin is expected to offer the five-megapixel, Beats Audio-infused One V for under $200 when it arrives in late [...]
If you thought our videos came out right every single time, you’re in for a treat. As a matter of fact, certain shows require around 20 minutes of footage out of which only 5 minutes will go live.
Covering events on video, as opposed to a show, is a different story. You work long hours, walk long distances just to go from one device to the next, and when you’ve got manufacturers like LG launching 6 to 7 devices on one show, going from L3 to L7 can become a tongue twister.
So here’s a little something to add some laughs to your Sunday afternoon. MWC [...]
With all the handsets that manufacturers have brought together for display at the MWC, we’re learning a lot about what the next generations of smartphones and tablets will have to offer. While we’d heard about a lot of this hardware before, the expo is giving us a chance to flesh-out our knowledge with previously-unknown details. Those are great to have, but even when we get the full picture on the hardware, oftentimes critical launch information isn’t available. Sometimes that means waiting for a carrier to make an announcement, but today we get some insight into the [...]
