    We all love source codes manufacturers publish because the community can take a look inside, report bugs for future version improvements, get inspiration and bits, extract stuff to make it available and all the good things a source can bring. HTC has released the sources for the Droid Incredible 2, Wildfire S and Desire HD. The Verizon Droid Incredible 2 is basically the HTC Incredible S -- which saw its own source made public already. The HTC Wildfire S is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 2.1 and the Desire HD already had its own source being published but this time it's the ...

    Back at MWC, a source inside HTC hinted that Android Gingerbread 2.3.x should be coming to the Desire HD "around April". Since then we've heard of one "official" update leaked earlier this month, but it turns out that was just an internal test build. Today, thanks to a pocketnow tipster, we've learned that another Gingerbread build has leaked. This time it's reportedly much more complete, and could likely be the final release. Dubbed "build 187331" the ROM is the World-Wide English version 2.36.405.8 and includes an updated version of the phone's radio. If you've got a Desire HD and are ...

    HTC might have made it known that Sense 3.0 won't find its way onto current-generation devices, but we knew that after a short period of time, once the HTC Sensation ROM was dumped (which happened just a couple of days ago), we'd begin seeing Sense 3.0 ports to all popular devices. Today an XDA user has posted a working (but buggy) port of the Sensation ROM to the Desire HD. If you install this Alpha ROM, you'll have to contend with an "HTC Confidential" watermark that appears on all screens, and you won't be able to use the camera, sounds effects, and much more, but hey...you knew that, ...

    The latest version of the HTC Sense interface for Android, version 3.0, brings some pretty significant changes and will debut on the EVO 3D and the Sensation. Chief among these changes are a new lock screen, new widgets, a new home screen configuration, and many little enhancements to the stock programs you use everyday. If you're rocking a current generation phone like the Desire HD (Inspire 4G), EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, or even the brand new Incredible S, you're probably wondering whether you'll get an upgrade to Sense 3.0. First, a bit of history. Most of the time (but not always) when HTC ...

    Shortly after showing up on Telstra Australia's system, we saw a couple of renders of the HTC Pyramid with its alleged 1.2GHz processor and large, 540 x 960 qHD display. It didn't take long for Mr. Blurrycam to step in as a picture of the HTC Pyramid, its back to be more specific, showed up on the Greek Techblog. Placed next to an HTC Desire HD, the Pyramid shows off its dual-LED flash-enabled eight-megapixel camera -- pretty much like its older cousing to the right. While the render was slightly different in the upper left camera region, the rest of the device looks to be the same, only ...

    As smartphone enthusiasts, we like to see big improvements from one generation of phones to another. HTC's current flagship, the Desire HD, is no slouch: it's powerful (with a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU and 768MB of RAM), it feels high quality thanks to its unibody construction, and it's slim (at 11.6mm) and pretty light weight (at 5.78 ounces). But the new flagship from HTC, the HTC Sensation, is not only more powerful (with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon and 768MB of RAM) with a higher resolution screen, but it's thinner (at 11.3mm) AND lighter (at 5.22 ounces). ...

    Displays have always been a smartphone's key point as it is the hardware component that you interact with and look at most.

    Part of the core of what makes Android Android has been its open-source development, creating a thriving community of hackers and tinkerers. Much of this scene is fed by the periodic release of the Android source code, letting developers adapt the software for not-yet-supported handsets. This seems so intrinsically Android that it's almost shocking to learn that Google is not planning on releasing Honeycomb code anytime soon, fearing that unauthorized smartphone ports would create a user experience too awful to allow. Business Week reports that Google has been telling hardware companies ...

    If you have an HTC Desire HD and are eager to get in on all the benefits the CyanogenMod custom ROM brings along with it, but you are more comfortable with Persian or Arabic, or are looking for a ROM with some extra goodies and tweaks, Spike CM7 may be just what you're looking for.

    I've said it before, but it's worth mentioning again: HTC seems to be leading the pack in getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread to their phones. The latest evidence to support this is a leaked "test" ROM for the HTC Desire HD. Information about the ROM is pretty sparce, but it looks legitimate.

    Just when Samsung is finally getting Android 2.2 Froyo to their smartphones, HTC went and announced that many of its recent phones will be getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread in the Spring. The devices in question range from the Desire and Desire HD to the Desire Z and the newer Incredible S. Many of you know that the HTC Desire Z and the T-Mobile G2 are essentially the same phone, the latter without HTC's Sense UI. No mention was made whether or not an official Gingerbread update would be made available for the G2 at the same time -- or ever. We'll have to wait for T-Mobile to answer that ...

    HTC just released the sourcecode for the kernels on their Aria, Desire Z, Desire HD and myTouch 4G. These devices have had their kernels released previously so today's release represents updates, bug-fixes, and improvements. The kernel is "the central component of most computer operating systems; it is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level. The kernel's responsibilities include managing the system's resources (the communication between hardware and software components). Usually as a basic component of an operating system, a kernel can ...
