HTC Paradise and Fiesta prototypes crop up in wild

Two unannounced HTC Android prototypes have shown up in the wild, after reportedly being sold on Craigslist.  Believed by Cellpassion to be the HTC Paradise - a sliding QWERTY version of the HTC Aria - and the HTC Fiesta, the Paradise at least had been spotted in an HTC user profile back in January. Full specs for the two handsets are unknown, but the Paradise is believed to fall in line with the Aria - a 3.2-inch display, UMTS/HSPA, WiFi and a 5-megapixel camera - only with the addition of the sliding 'board.  The Fiesta, meanwhile, has a confirmed 3.2-megapixel camera but otherwise we're entirely in the dark.  Previous rumors had suggested that the handset - believed to be headed to AT&T - had been axed, so it's not clear whether this is a sign those rumors were premature or that this is an abandoned prototype.

LG G Flex: using the multi-window feature

With larger devices like the LG G Flex, multi-window utility is an option many take advantage of. By splitting the screen in two (figuratively, we’re not cutting things in half, here), we can get a snippet of multiple things without having to navigate between apps. Fun and functional, some are still in the dark about how this all works, and why it’s one of the coolest features on the G Flex.

HTC hires new VP of Global PR, Corporate and Internal Operations

When HTC's Chief Operating Officer Matthew Costello stepped down, it appeared that HTC was getting its feathers in a tussle. Rumors persisted that they were beginning to become directionless, and even though strong sales opposed those rumors, the shuffling of major forces within the company suggested otherwise. Enter Lorain Wong, HTC's new VP of Global PR and Corporate/Internal Operations. Could stability finally be back in the cards?

HP TouchPad CM9 graduates to Alpha 2: we go hands-on

It's been many a moon since I dusted off the old firesale HP TouchPad, but now that the CyanogenMod team has advanced its Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the tablet to Alpha 2, I figured it was time to give the mod-friendly slate another go. TouchPad owners can download the latest ROM from RootzWiki, and after you see my experiences here, you'll want to. The TouchPad has become a surprisingly stable and speedy platform for Android, due in no small part to the efforts of the CyanogenMod developers.

Leaked AT&T Roadmap Reveals HTC ChaCha, HTC Hydra

It appears that the folks over at AT&T have leaked (or have had leaked from underneath them,) a roadmap which reveals details on specs as well as release dates for several code-named devices, at least a couple of which will be (or would have been) running Android. The first is a colorful customer we've gotten to know fairly well in other parts of the world, that being the HTC ChaCha - aka a QUERTY keyboard-toting 480x320 resolution portrait-mode phone with a physical Facebook button.

Seven HTC Android phones tipped in user profiles

HTC's upcoming Android device portfolio has seemingly been revealed, courtesy of some overzealous publishing of handset user profiles.  The seven devices - complete with screen resolution and keyboard details - include a QWERTY-equipped version of the HTC Tattoo, the HTC Halo. Overall there are three with QWERTY keyboards and the remainder rely on touchscreen-only input.  The majority have 320 x 480 displays, though there's one device - the HTC Supersonic - with a panel running at 480 x 800.  At least one of the devices - the HTC Legend - was included in the leaked 2010 roadmap for HTC late last year. Of course, there's no release schedules linked with the different devices, so we'll just have to wait and see what HTC bring to Mobile World Congress 2010 next month.  Android Community will be there to bring back all the details!
