    When Samsung sent out invitations to its MWC event earlier this month, it mentioned a then-unknown device, the Galaxy Note 10.1. At the time, we weren't quite sure what to make of that, short of that it sounded like Samsung might be using this model as an opportunity to introduce the Galaxy Note's S Pen to its tablet lineup. Sure enough, this morning Samsung formally revealed the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, complete with an S Pen stylus. Aside from the S Pen, there's not much to distinguish the Note 10.1 from Galaxy Tab devices. It runs a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, has a 1280x800 10.1-inch ...

    Two months ago, we gave you the first glimpse at the HTC Edge, which was looking like it would be the initial quad-core smartphone produced by the manufacturer. We were expecting it to arrive somewhere around the start of springtime, but didn't have specifics as to just how the handset would be launched. A new theory, championed by analysts at JPMorgan Chase, claims that HTC will first show-off the Edge at the Mobile World Congress next month. With CES about to begin, our attention is largely focused on that event, but the 2012 Mobile World Congress will follow hot on its trail just a ...

    This one's purely for phone geeks: according to a trusted source, HTC has taken the unusual move of changing the codename of its upcoming flagship, quad-core handset from HTC Edge to HTC Endeavor. As far as we know, this is a somewhat unprecedented decision on the part of the Taiwanese company, as the codename is still used internally long after retail branding has been established; that's especially helpful when you're a global organization selling the same phone under different names in different countries -- everyone knows that a Status is the same as a ChaChaCha. We were not privy to ...

    With HTC just having announced its One-series of Androids, some of the remaining details on the phones are starting to fall into place, along with those for the One XL, which we heard mentioned earlier this month. Retailers are expecting the global version of the quad-core HTC One X to become available early in April – Clove is listing April 5 for both the One X and One S – and should cost somewhere around $650 before taxes, which sounds quite reasonable for its high-end hardware. All official specs we've seen for the global One X have it with a quad-band 850/900/1900/2100MHz radio, but ...

    The upcoming quad-core smartphone currently codenamed HTC Endeavor has already gone through one identity change, starting out life as the Edge -- and long rumored to come to market as the HTC Supreme. Well HTC may still use the Supreme branding for another phone -- possibly the sleek dual-core Ville -- but we're now hearing that Endeavor will go by the name HTC One X when it's introduced at the end of the month at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress. Apparently the "X" will be placed as superscript above the word "One" for branding purposes. An HTC subcontractor has already reserved the ...

    You might remember it as the HTC Edge which was later renamed to HTC Endeavor but it got launched in Barcelona at MWC as the HTC One X. It is actually HTC's first quad-core device powered by the nVidia Tegra 3 SoC. The One X also packs a 4.7-inch display with 720p, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of Internal Storage and has an eight-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video. There's a 1.3-megapixel front-facing webcam and the phone runs Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.0 on top of it. One thing of note though is that LTE carriers who will have the One X in their line-up will have the ...

    Yesterday, we brought you the first press shot of HTC's One X, the quad-core superphone that should be the highlight of the manufacturer's MWC offerings. We noted at the time that HTC had made a few changes since the first render we saw of the phone back in November. We knew it would just be a matter of days before we had the opportunity to check out the handset in person at the Mobile World Congress, but today we get a look a little bit early, thanks to some images that are supposedly of the One X and the One S. The One X (above) looks largely like we expected it to, with the small ...

    The upcoming quad-core HTC One X has seemingly undergone some restyling since we first saw it late last year under the codename HTC Edge. Having gone through an unusual pre-launch name change to Endeavor, it now looks like this flagship member of the One family may have earned that switch, apparently adopting a slightly sleeker look overall while also dropping one of the capacitive buttons. We're now only days away from the presumed introduction of this 4.7-inch, 720p behemoth, tipped to launch alongside the renamed Ville and Primo (One S and One P One V, rumor has it) at Mobile World ...

    As was widely expected, HTC announced its two halo devices for the first half of the year at Mobile World Congress today, the quad-core HTC One X and slim, dual-core HTC One S. First revealed as the HTC Edge and HTC Ville, respectively, the two handsets are both powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and skinned with HTC Sense 4.0. The One X, pictured up top (and better known by its final codename of Endeavor), features a Tegra 3 "4+1" quad core processor, 4.7-inch, 720p HD display, and 1GB of RAM / 32GB ROM. It's got a 1080p-capable eight-megapixel main camera with the new HTC ...

    We recently learned just which smartphone models Nokia may be preparing to show off at this year's Mobile World Congress, including the Lumia 900 and Lumia 610. There's another Lumia model that we've talked about in the past but haven't heard much about lately, one that's starting to make some noise again. Could Nokia be planning on using the MWC to demonstrate this supposed Lumia 719, as well? We last mentioned the Lumia 719 just before our coverage of the CES began, when we were still trying to work-out what Nokia would have to display at that event. We had heard of the 719 as a ...

    We've gotten wind of the names, but not the details, of the handsets Nokia reportedly plans on revealing later this month at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress. The six devices are supposedly split evenly among smartphones -- two Windows Phones and a Symbian -- and three S60 S40 featurephones. Specifically, we're now expecting the global version of the Lumia 900, an entry-level handset dubbed the Lumia 610, and the Nokia 808 PureView, which has been rumored as a full touchscreen successor to the camera-centric N8. Also tipped were the Asha 302, Asha 203, and Asha 202. As for the Windows ...

    As has been rumored, Nokia is indeed bringing a pair of Windows Phones to Mobile World Congress, a global version of the Lumia 900 and a new entry-level handset, the Lumia 610. Specs on the 900 are well-known, but details on the the 610 remain elusive; we're pretty sure that it sports a five-megapixel camera, which casts some doubt on the purported specifications making the rounds which give it just a three-megapixel shooter. Apparently the 610 will come in four different shades, while the 900 will be available in white, black, and cyan. Nokia is also expected to announce the spiritual ...

    Panasonic, a brand not typically associated with high-tech gadgetry (they make great bathroom exhaust fans!) has taken the wraps off of their Eluga Power tabphone, a device that has a 5.0" 720p display (though part of that screen is utilized by software Android buttons) and a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU running on Android 4.0. Even with such a large display the Eluga Power is a svelte 9.6mm thick (which is essentially the same thickness as the Galaxy Note). The 1,800mAh battery of the device can be charged all the way to the 50% mark within just 30 minutes, which is pretty ...

    3.5-inch FWVGA display, and a 1.0GHz dual-core processor plus 1GB of RAM is what's on the Sony Xperia U, pretty much like on the Sony Xperia P, the two phones the Japanese company has announced today while in Barcelona at the MWC. We take a look at the white version of the Sony Xperia U in our video below but the device will be available in a black flavor too, once it hits the market in the second quarter of the year. As with the Xperia P, the Xperia U has great build quality and Sony is really taking its new design signature forward with its line-up.

    HTC announced the One S Android phone today, alongside the One X, and we really need to say that, despite HTC going forward with their design policy, the One S is continuing its trend with excellent build quality. The One S is powered by a Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon processor and has a 4.3-inch display with qHD resolution. Also on-board is 1GB of RAM and 16GB of Internal Storage alongside Bluetooth 3.0 radio, Wi-Fi b/g/n, eight-megapixel main camera, VGA webcam and the usual suspects.
