    A british judge ruled this morning in favor of Nokia, finding that HTC infringes several patents owned by the Finnish company. As a direct effect, HTC will not be able to sell its One mini phone in the UK starting December 6, this Friday. While the judge also found the One to be infringing, he did not immediately impose a ban on the flagship; such a measure would have caused “considerable” damage to HTC, he opined. However, the injunction against the One is just postponed, giving HTC enough time to appeal the ruling. The One mini ban is immediate, though, as of December 6. "Nokia is ...

    Mid-range smartphones have always been an odd segment of the mobile landscape. The hardware they offer is never top-notch, their designs can look like bloated mutations of sleeker flagship models, and despite more affordable prices than those higher tier handsets, mid-rangers just haven't been a great value for your dollar. And then today we get this new Motorola – the Moto G. It doesn't completely hit the ball out of the park with its hardware, but there are a few stand-out components. The Moto-X-inspired design is liable to get the G confused for the X itself, and those custom ...

    Miniature versions of top-shelf smartphones have been around for years; Samsung's been keeping up with it for its Galaxy S line, sure, but this year we really saw renewed interest in the practice. That meant a Galaxy S 4 Mini, launched shortly after the GS4 and flanked by other GS4 variants like the Active and Zoom models, as well as an HTC One Mini coming out a little longer after its parent its parent phone arrived. While both suffered from the long-term curse of the mini-phone, showing up with specs that very much failed to align with the larger editions, they still seemed better ...

    Pressure for smartphone companies to perform can be intense. Too often, the focus is on growth, and if you're not showing constantly expanding sales, the implication is often that your doing something wrong. Take HTC, for instance: for all the talk about how it's struggling to attract shoppers and revenues have been down compared to last year, we tend to gloss over one important fact – that it's still turning a profit. Sure, those profits are dwarfed by the numbers seen by the likes of Samsung, but it's difficult to paint a company as an abject failure when it's still managing to make ...

    It's probably not the best day for device announcements, but nobody saw it coming. First, let's start with the color options: the HTC One flagship and the HTC One Mini are getting a new flavor: ‘Vivid Blue’. HTC claims it's delivering "a bold new option for those who want a handset that stands out from the crowd". Images of the two blue flavored Ones below! In addition to the color options, the company also unveiled the HTC BoomBass, a subwoofer which plays nicely with HTC BoomSound "to offer a fully-immersive audio experience like no other". It connects via Bluetooth. On to the new ...

    Remember back in the early days of 2013 when we first heard of the HTC Mini? Not the One Mini, mind you – that would come much later – but that weird little Bluetooth accessory released as a companion to the HTC Butterfly in China, letting users actually make their calls on something a little more petite than that beefy five-incher. At the time, it seemed like a neat idea, but one we felt would need to see wider availability if it ever hoped to take off. Now it seems that could finally be happening, as its sequel, the HTC Mini+, appears on the company's site. It sounds pretty slick, ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about AT&T's launch of the Moto X, the HTC One mini and even the LG Optimus G Pro. We later talk about the Moto X specifically, when to expect it on other carriers, and how much it'll cost you to get the wooden back. Then we talk about Apple's acquisition of Embark, and what this means to maps on iOS. Windows Phone is next as we discover that GDR3 will most likely bring Notifications, and we also discover Nokia's Bittersweet Shimmer, which is not funny. We end today's show talking about Steve Ballmer's confirmation that he'll retire from ...

    The Motorola Moto X might not be the powerhouse you've been dreaming about, like, say, the Galaxy S 4, or the HTC One, but it sure is a sweet Android "for the average Joe", as we concluded in our review. However, the phone always listens to you, and Motorola emphasized more on the experience, rather than on specs. You can grab it from AT&T after paying $199.99 and signing a two-year contract, or $579.99 without one. The HTC One Mini needs no introduction. It's the smaller sibling to the flagship and does everything the top of the line HTC does. If you can live with its mediocre ...

    We're just about one month out since HTC first announced the One's little brother, the One Mini. While it packs a Snapgradon 400 instead of a 600, it's still got a crisp HD screen, squeezing a 720p panel down to 4.3 inches. Add in some stereo Boomsound speakers, and you've got a pint-sized handset that still hits many of the same notes as the full-sized version. Back then, HTC told us to look for the phone to first start shipping this month, with broader availability in September. We also got a look at a render of the One Mini for AT&T, but lacked a better sense of just when the phone ...

    HTC and Samsung are directly competing in the high-end/flagship segment with the One and the Galaxy S 4. However, the battle is ongoing in the mid-range sector too, with the HTC One Mini, which we're currently reviewing, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. As we like to put it, the HTC One Mini is for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini what the HTC One is for the Samsung Galaxy S 4: fierce competition. But there's more to the raison d'être of the One Mini than to simply compete with the S4 Mini. It is there to address a specific segment of the market; it is a niche product. It is for all those who ...

    Every time I sit down to write about HTC, and the latest misstep the company's taking, I feel compelled to point out my generally positive feelings for the manufacturer – ever since the HTC Dream, I've associated the brand with platform-leading Android hardware. Of course, HTC sure seems to have put out a concerted effort in the years that followed to sully that image, but the last year or so has been building up to a period of contrition for the company; it really seemed to get the message behind why users weren't sticking around, and had me believing that it was willing to change. So ...

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, and you don’t have to analyze and compare these two phones too much, to realize that a mini phone, the HTC One mini, is larger than Apple’s flagship, the iPhone 5. If we want to be fair and honest, we’d say that the iPhone 5 is the mini phone among the two. The difference between the iPhone 5 and the HTC One Mini is bigger than the difference between the One Mini and the One. To draw a conclusion is more difficult than one would think. Aside from the eternal iOS vs Android debate, these two phones are different, and behave differently. Check ...

    As we're looking closer and closer at all aspects of the HTC One mini, after our initial unboxing and comparison with the One, a press render got leaked of the allegedly upcoming AT&T variant of the mini phone. As you can see in the image above, it is identical to the international version, with the addition of the AT&T logo on the back, on top of the Beats Audio branding. Once it will become official, you will be able to opt for basically a smaller One, with a 4.3-inch 720p screen,  and Snapdragon 400 CPU with two cores, clocked at 1.4GHz, helped by 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 4MP ...
