    Back in July, shortly after Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was announced in the first place, we heard a little about what HTC was thinking so far as Jelly Bean upgrade plans. While it confirmed JB plans for a number of Androids, there were notable absences from that list, and while it hadn't said outright that such phones would be denied Jelly Bean, we were left feeling concerned for their futures. Now that it's had quite a bit of time to work on bringing Jelly Bean to its lineup, HTC is once again discussing its plans, and seeks to clarifies just which models will and won't be seeing official ...

    HTC seems to be getting ready to add a couple new entries to its One series of Androids smartphones. We've already heard rumors about a hardware refresh for the One X, supposedly featuring a new NVIDIA SoC and arriving as the One X+. The latest rumor to arrive looks at a new One-series model on the other end of the scale, presumably arriving as an alternative to the One V. The model is going by the codename "Proto", which is as appropriate a name for an in-development smartphone as we've ever heard. Many of its rumored specs and capabilities place it directly in line with the One V. That ...

    News broke yesterday that Australian carrier Telstra is expecting HTC to prepare Jelly Bean updates for its One S and One XL models. Obviously, we're going to start seeing Android 4.1 updates coming out for plenty of recently-released handsets, but outside of Google devices, there hasn't been much news along those lines to date. Now that the subject of these JB updates for HTC's phones had been raised, the company decided to release a short statement, verifying the news and mentioning that JB is on the way for another of its models, as well. It's hardly a shocker, but along with the One XL ...

    I've turned an HTC One X into one of my two daily drivers for the last two or three weeks. Not that I didn't enjoy the company of my old Galaxy Nexus, but I'm on the list of people that really do enjoy HTC Sense. I know it's either a love-or-hate relationship for many of you, but Sense is the best of many worlds for me. It has all the social integration I love about Windows Phone 7, all the polish that attracts me about iOS, and it’s running on the fluidity and openness that I've come to enjoy about Android. Sadly, the year is 2012. For many of you that are using Windows Phone devices or ...

    HTC's One V is unquestionably the underdog of the current One-series of Androids, with hardware specs that just can't quite measure-up to the One X or One S. In its favor, it does arrive with all the latest software, including Sense 4.0 and Ice Cream Sandwich. Our review of the phone left us a bit disappointed with its performance, but if you're more concerned with things like price, it's still a solidly-built phone for the money. So far, the One V has only been available in the States if you were to import the international version, but we've known of plans to bring it to the US sometime ...

    Four months ago, we heard some rumors that HTC might be the first manufacturer to join Sony's phones as PlayStation Certified Androids, granting them access to Sony's curated app store. This week, we see those claims come true, with Sony officially announcing the phones of HTC's One series as the first of that manufacturer's devices to enter the program. Is this a boon for Android gamers, though, or just another example of Android fragmentation? When we heard those old rumors, we wondered if HTC might be developing some Xperia Play-like hardware, and this one new model would be its ...

    The HTC One V is the smallest (cutest, dumbest, budget, etc.) among all One phones. It was introduced alongside the One X and the One S in February at the Mobile World Congress and it is preparing its suitcase to visit the U.S. The HTC One V will make its first ever appearance on American soil at this year's CTIA 2012 (at HTC's booth #3519). Those who are looking forward to grabbing the HTC Legend remake will be happy to find out that it will be available "through a variety of U.S. partners later this summer". If you missed our review of the International version make sure you read it. The ...

    You might recall that we're not particularly fond of HTC Sense 4.0, because in a lot of places, it holds back Ice Cream Sandwich, which is already elegant, functional, and fast. With Android's fantastic ability to change the launcher (meaning: the entire homescreen/app drawer experience), those running Sense 4.0 (or any undesireable stock launcher) can opt for something better. We've shown you options in the past such as Laucher Pro, ADW Launcher EX, Go Launcher EX, and others. Today, we're going to add a new one to the list: Apex Launcher, which is free in Google Play. What's great about ...

    Choice is good, and HTC is offering three of them for those wanting to take home one of their new One series of devices. HTC's One line represents a refreshed focus on the software experience and build quality. Essentially, HTC wants to reclaim the ground it lost in 2011 to Samsung and others, and its One series is its strategy for doing so. Its flagship One X is one of the most beautiful pieces of technology to come to market in a long time, but it's not inexpensive. For the budget-minded, HTC also has the One V, which incorporates the keystone features of the flagship, but at a much ...

    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 cut back on the number of Android ...

    The HTC One V is on the opposite end of the smartphone spectrum compared to the One X. It's relatively inexpensive (just $350 over at Negri Electronics), it's small with just a 3.7" screen, it's made from aluminum, and it has a single-core CPU. The One V is currently on sale overseas, and it happens to have the right bands to do AT&T 3G. The One V, beyond its 1GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (which is more than capable for most tasks), is running on Android 4.0.3 with Sense 4.0 on top. It has a 5MP camera on back capable of 720p video, while the lack of front-facing camera reminds ...

    A new HTC device just saw its certification documents published by the FCC. The paperwork makes it clear that it's a smartphone, but offers us precious little insight into the phone's true identity. Just what HTC handset might we be looking at here? The model in question is the HTC PK76110. That number doesn't look like it's been tied to any known upcoming HTC phone; the only real hits on it trace back to a WiFi Alliance certification from last month. Delving into the FCC docs, we get a basic look at the phone's dimensions from its antenna layout schematic. As for frequency support, the ...

    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 Spring.
