    HTC has been making smartphones for a very long time. The company was often used by big-name OEMs as the manufacturing company that built their hardware. Compaq and HP (back when they were in the personal digital assistant business) both used HTC to build their devices, which were arguably some of the best pieces of consumer electronics of the day. But what about an HTC tablet? HTC Tablets HTC has made some very high-end smartphones recently. The One M8 lineup looks and feels great, thanks in part to its aluminum construction - which doesn't bend like Apple's latest aluminum smartphones. ...

    Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6 has definitely made a ton of headlines. From the acclaimed “bendgate” issues of the iPhone 6 Plus, to this being Apple’s best selling iPhone lineup in history, a lot is to be expected from Apple’s latest and greates smartphone. Is this iPhone really worth your money, or should you consider other Android options in the market? My Twitter account has been on fire lately, and that’s mainly because I was the guy that ditched the iPhone 5s for an HTC One M8 a few months ago. Now that everyone has learned that I’m back to using an iPhone 6, it’s ...

    October is just days away, which puts us close to the one-year anniversary of HTC's launch of its One Max phablet. The 5.9-inch handset brought a fingerprint scanner to the company's smartphone lineup, and despite the model keeping the One's design language and offering a solid user experience, it failed to really sell in droves. Will this year bring us a follow-up model? We've heard a little about a possible One Max 2 (or One M8 Max), and now a new rumor attempts to fill us in on a few hardware specifics. Instead of another 5.9-incher, this report claims that we could be in for a slightly ...

    The "Eye"-codenamed upcoming HTC device is still a mystery. Depending on who you tend to believe, it's all about either the front-facing camera -- for a brand new "selfie" phone, like we didn't have enough of those already -- or, like this most recent report claims, about the main camera. In any case, the consensus is that the "Eye" tentative moniker describes some sort of camera functionality. Today's HTC One M8 Eye rumors try to predict several things: first off, we're seeing the phone being "placed" in the One M8 family, where the original One M8, and the newcomer, the One M8 running ...

    Last night we saw HTC deliver the first teaser video for one of the products it's planning to launch at its October 8 “double exposure” event. Apparently dubbed the RE Camera, we seem to be looking at a small handled or mountable tube-shaped rugged camera, intended for uses ranging from extreme sport helmet-cam action to just snapping a more convenient selfie with friends. Yesterday's video may have showed us what the RE Camera is capable of doing, but it really didn't give us much of a look at the hardware itself. But now some new pics have been uncovered that sure appear to reveal ...

    HTC's “double exposure” event is coming up on October 8, and rumors have suggested that in addition to a selfie-optimitzed smartphone, we could also see the manufacturer introduce a new camera accessory. Reports of a rugged camera with cross-platform compatibility and a tube-shaped construction conjured up thoughts of something a bit GoPro-ish, and now HTC is beginning to directly tease the product's launch, publishing a new video and setting up a social presence for what it seems to be calling its RE Camera. The promotional clip sure fits with the idea of a rugged, extremely portable ...

    Rumors about an HTC-made Nexus 9 have been kicking around for months now, but it's only been over the course of the past two or so when those rumors really started to come together and feel like they were describing a product that truly was going to launch. More recently, that momentum's been helped out by the discovery of a growing body evidence pointing (at the very least) to HTC's work on a new tablet. Today, The Wall Street Journal weighs-in on the rumors, as its sources describe why Google is supposedly going with HTC, rather than a more established tablet-maker like Samsung. While a ...

    Updated with the high-quality edited version of the podcast, which you can stream or download down below (or through your favorite podcatcher app). We hope you enjoyed; we'll check back in with you next week! If you ask us, the first thing you should do on iPhone launch day is take a long, hard look at the competition. Not because the iPhone is a bad product, but because everyone else tends to step up their game when Apple brings a new phone –or two– to the yard. And that's more true than ever this year. With that in mind, we'll talk about all kinds of smartphone and smartwatch ...

    One of the primary reasons sites like Pocketnow exist is to review and evaluate the vast array of smartphones on the market at any given time, compile our findings, and report our thoughts and observations back to you. We do the hard work and heavy lifting so you can make the most informed decision when you go to by a smartphone for yourself. If this were a static, unchanging list, the task would be fairly easy, but it's not. The smartphones available t0 buy at any given time can easily rise into the dozens for mainstream devices, and into the hundreds when looking at everything that's ...

    HTC recently sent out invitations to an October 8th event which included the cryptic message "Double Exposure". Double exposure is a term used in photography to describe the repeated exposure of a photographic plate or film to light, which can often produce "ghost images". Subsequently, Bloomberg reported that we may soon see an HTC camera - no, not a camera embedded in a smartphone or tablet, an actual, stand-alone camera. Thanks to the popularity of the GoPro (a small, rugged camera designed for recording extreme situations and "action sports") a relatively untapped niche has emerged. ...

    How overdue are we for a new Nexus tablet? After two straight years of summertime launches for the Nexus 7, 2014 has so far left us empty-handed. But to hear what rumors have been telling us, our Nexus fix could be just around the corner, with expectations that an HTC-made Nexus 9 could be lurking in the shadows, nearly ready to make its debut. The evidence surrounding this device has been steadily building up, most recently in the form of the discovery of an apparent keyboard case. But even if this Nexus 9 is on the way, when would it get here? Last month, we discussed the possibility of ...

    One of the best things HTC's doing with the software on its Android models lately has been the way it's distributing even HTC-exclusive apps on the Play Store. By doing so, it's able to deliver app updates to users far more easily than it would through monolithic system software updates. We've already seen it go down that path with its Gallery app, and today learn about a new release that's incoming, bringing some additional features to the One M8 and Butterfly 2. The fact that we're talking about those two models should clue you in to the focus here: new Duo Camera stuff. Specifically, we ...

    Three weeks ago, HTC got a head-start on IFA 2014 by announcing its Desire 510 mid-ranger, notable for its LTE support and use of a Snapdragon 410 SoC, making it one of the very first 64-bit capable Androids. Much earlier in the summer, though, we were already hearing whispers about the 510, and the notion that it might find a home on a US carrier – and Sprint, to be specific. Today we learn that those old rumors are coming true, with Sprint sharing plans to add the 510 to its lineup later this week. The Desire 510 hits Sprint this Friday for the quite affordable sticker price of just ...

    Just when we thought that the smartphone world was in store for a couple months of quiet, following the iPhone 6 launch and in advance of the bustling holiday season, HTC's been popping-up all over the place with rumors of new hardware. If we're not talking about plans for a Nexus 9 tablet with Google, we're wondering what's in store for next month's “double exposure” event. Our best guess yet at the latter has it featuring both a new camera accessory and the long-rumored HTC Eye selfie phone. Over the weekend, a few new rumors attempted to reveal a bit more about the Eye's hardware, ...

    Bit by bit, these rumors about an HTC Nexus 9 have become more and more convincing. Maybe that NVIDIA shout-out in some recent legal docs seemed a little more official than it likely was, but we're fielding reports of this HTC Nexus hardware from multiple angles, many pointing to a launch in just a matter of weeks. The latest evidence in support of this device comes to us in the form of an accessory, as Taiwan's version of the FCC takes a look at an HTC tablet keyboard case. The idea about a keyboard case for the Nexus 9 has been hanging around for a little over two weeks now, first ...
