    If you're on AT&T and are still rocking the 2012 flagship, you should be happy to find out that the phone will be getting its Android 4.2.2 update on January 29, which is tomorrow. Apparently, according to HTC's Executive Director for Product Management, the 4.2.2 update with Sense 5+ has been approved by the carrier and the over-the-air update process has been scheduled for tomorrow. That doesn't mean that you will get yours the same day, as usually these firmwares are pushed out in waves, but you can start hitting that "check for updates" button soon. Two weeks ago HTC One X+ users ...

    When it rains, it pours, and hot off the news of Canonical discontinuing Ubuntu Touch development for a number of Nexus phones and tablets, we're switching focus to HTC, as the manufacturer confirms that a couple of its own handsets are hitting the end of the road with their own platform updates. The phones in question are the One X, as well as the slightly upgraded One X+. Following rumors that the One X+ wouldn't see the arrival of any KitKat update, HTC stepped forward to confirm the news: both phones will end their careers on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, running Sense 5.0. For the One X ...

    Depending on your perspective, the HTC One is either the biggest Android success story of 2013, or the most overhyped piece of mobile tech since the iPhone. Debate continues to rage between the two camps across our various comment sections, and fanboys being what they are, a resolution seems unlikely anytime soon. One thing is clear, though: a timely HTC One update is critical to the company's success. For our part, we consider the One to be a real home run, both for HTC and for the Android world in general - a fact that will come as no surprise to veteran listeners of the Pocketnow Weekly ...

    HTC's One X has had a good run. The phone launched at last year's MWC, and we saw it come to North America right around this time in 2012. Since then, we've witnessed the phone make the journey to Jelly Bean, and more recently HTC has been talking about its plans to bring Sense 5.0 – debuting with the HTC One – to the One X in a future update. We recommend taking the time to enjoy that one when it arrives, because if the latest rumor is any indication, it could very well be the smartphone's last major update. LlabTooFeR, who's posted HTC predictions before, claims via Twitter that the ...

    Motorola's Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx aren't the only older Androids seeing upgrades to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and following a bit of a false start, we can now confirm that the HTC One X on AT&T will begin receiving its update today. AT&T initially posted on its blog about the update, but after abruptly removing the post, it was unclear if the update was still forthcoming, or if that announcement had been made a bit prematurely, and there would still be a wait before the software's release. Now it's back up, and we can confirm that distribution of the update does indeed begin today. ...

    Earlier this month we got to see HTC launch its new One flagship, the phone that will usher in Sense 5. It's quite the departure from earlier iterations of Sense, and love it or hate it, existing HTC users have probably been wondering whether or not there were plans to make it available for current devices. HTC recently took to Facebook to address these questions, and let us know a little about how Sense 5 updates will arrive. This is not necessarily an exhaustive list of phones that will see Sense 5, but HTC specifically says that the global versions of the One X, One X+, One S, and the ...

Wireless charging is next as Michael Fisher walks us through the way to get it on your Galaxy S III today. We end today's show talking about Motorola's X Phone, and how Google in contributing in ...

    Back in September, we heard that O2 and HTC were going to try doing something about all the unnecessary junk piling up in our lives, and sell smartphones without a bundled-in charger. After all, the vast majority of us already have all the USB chargers we need, not to mention dozens of micro USB cables lying around. Now that it's four months later, we have some data to show us just how well the initiative went, and the numbers are very supportive of the idea. The carrier chose the HTC One X+ for its test, and sold the phone to subscribers without an included charger. It was going on the ...

    HTC's been talking about its Jelly Bean update strategy for months now, with some early statements back in July more recently followed up by news that the One V, and the majority of other 512MB devices, wouldn't be seeing the update land. We've seen the One X start getting its JB update, but what about HTC's other Androids with sufficient RAM? Well, the manufacturer has yet to release a comprehensive list, only saying that it would first concentrate its efforts on 2012 releases, but a list has leaked over the weekend that attempts to enumerate just which handsets are on HTC's agenda. This ...

    Microsoft kick-starts the smack-talk machine, which blows up in its face just as Nokia sells its own headquarters. The Lumia 822 gives us an excuse to launch a brand-new review format, while a Nexus 4 trade lets us take a post-review look at Google's latest smartphone. The iPhone 5S breaks its cover -maybe- while the Nexus 10 gives everyone a reason to care about big Android tablets - again, maybe. Rumors of a new 1080p device from LG get the speculation bonfire going again, but a cool bucketful of Google Play-colored cold water got us back on track. And, of course, it wouldn't be a ...

    HTC was supposed to push out the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the One X in October, according to official wording from the company at the time of the HTC One X+ press release, but only one month ago, at the end of October, did the Taiwanese manufacturer deliver the refresh to some devices in Asia. "Better late than never", they say. HTC One X owners in Europe, Asia and South America should be on the lookout for Jelly Bean on their unlocked phones with CID_038 and CID_044. After the update process, which contains two stages (a smaller file and the main refresh), you will ...

    There's no better news, than those that have to do with device launches. Those of you curious as to when AT&T will launch most of their fall line-up of smartphones, the wait is over. As of today you may hit AT&T stores for the HTC One X+, which is being sold for $199 after a two-year contract. That drops the price of the old HTC One X to just $99 after a contract if you're still interested. In the case of the HTC One VX, which is more of HTC's entry-level solution on the AT&T network, well that'll cost you $49.99 after a two-year contract as well. The One VX listing is still ...

    We just heard from HTC about the fate of Jelly Bean updates for a number of its Android smartphones. While the outlook isn't sunny for all of them, the company's very latest handsets should be on-track for seeing Android 4.1 updates. Those confirmed to make the leap to Jelly Bean include the One X+ and the One VX, which we've known for some time now would be finding homes at AT&T in the States. Today, AT&T gives us the rest of the story on just how this pair will arrive, with sales starting this Friday, November 16. We've taken some time to go hands-on with both of these phones, ...

    Back when we first reviewed the HTC One X, our chief complaint with the smartphone was that it was laggy. For a quad-core phone, that was peculiar and quite frustrating. Lag aside, we loved the display and thought the hardware was top-notch. So we were really excited when we heard about the HTC One X Plus, which is a significant refresh of the One X that, thanks to a faster CPU, ought to address these issues of lag. In fact, HTC claims that the One X Plus is 67% faster than the first One X.  Not only does the One X Plus have a faster CPU, but it has a bigger battery, the latest version of ...

    We say it so often on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast that it's become something of a cliché: we really, really want HTC to succeed. The company has been at the forefront of our technology consciousness  for only a few years in its current incarnation, but long before it was "HTC," it built devices as an ODM for other corporations. Devices like the PPC-6700, my first true PocketPC. Devices like the Treo Pro, which helped Palm survive its leap to a new platform (albeit briefly). And since striking out on its own, the company has altered the landscape with game-changing devices like the G1, ...

    According to HTC, users of the One X --and One S for that matter-- should get the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update by the end of October. There are still five days left of this month so everything could happen especially that the latest version of Android is now rolling out to One X phones in Asia. According to reports we're looking at Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean HTC's own Sense UI on top of it. The package is weighing around 350MB. Taiwan and Singapore are mentioned in the report and the filename hints details of version numbers and builds: 3.14.709.16 and 2.17.709.7. There is no ...

    Michael and I got some to spend some time with the fine folks at AT&T at a New York City event where the company showcased their fall lineup of devices. While most of them we have seen before, there were some new devices on-hand that were just recently announced. We used the event as an opportunity to play around with some new devices, like the One X+, the One VX, the Lumia 920, and the Galaxy Camera. Check out our hands-on video below, and scroll down for some early impressions. One X+ When we reviewed the original HTC One X, we had several complaints: the camera wasn't that great, ...

    HTC and its One series of Androids have been all over the news this morning, upon the official announcement of the One X+, as well as the surprise reveal of the One VX. If you already jumped at the chance to pick up an earlier One model, we've got some news for you, too, upon HTC spilling the beans (no pun intended) on Jelly Bean for a couple of those handsets. HTC has made it clear for months that Jelly Bean was on the agenda for most of its existing One-series Androids, but the lingering question has always been just when would it get around to delivering those updates. Today HTC gave ...

    A little earlier this morning we shared with you the initial announcement of the HTC One X+, knowing that it was destined for Europe and Asia, but still awaiting news of its arrival in the States. Now AT&T has revealed that it will be giving the One X+ a home, along with another HTC Android, the One VX. Don't worry about the One X+, as this time around, HTC's headlining smartphone manages to pull off LTE without sacrificing its SoC, thanks to the new wave of Tegra 3 chips. If that sounds like too much phone for you, the One VX offers a more affordable alternative. The One VX moves down ...

    As per the earlier rumors, HTC is indeed making a new version of its One X flagship model. The HTC One X+ adds a faster CPU thanks to a Nvidia Tegra 3 AP37 CPU clocking at 1.7GHz (versus the Tegra 3 clocking at 1.5GHz), a bigger 2100mAh battery (versus 1800mAh), more storage at 64GB (versus 32GB), and an improved front-facing camera. Like the Windows Phone 8x, the One X+ has an amplifier external speaker, which is a great addition for those that want to play music without needing a speaker dock. It will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with a new version of HTC Sense called Sense ...
