announcement, to private beta and has just been released as a public beta. As we have been watching, this release was for the HTC One and it means users will be able to switch back and forth between the stock Android experience and the Sense UI experience. In addition we are also getting some details on an upcoming release for the Samsung Galaxy S 4.
MoDaCo.SWITCH was that it was nearing a beta release. That release hasn't happened just yet, however it appears as if progress is still being made. Paul O'Brien recently announced that he has begun accepting requests from those looking to test out the first release of MoDaCo.SWITCH.
MoDaCo.SWITCH a short while back and while we saw a bit of detail and a screenshot at that time, there is now a video available. But first, MoDaCo.SWITCH will be available for the HTC One and it will allow users to (as the name would imply) switch. In this case the switch would be between Sense and the Google Play edition.
HTC One fans and owners. He's calling the new feature the MoDaCo Switch, and it will allow users to seamlessly switch from the stock HTC Sense UI software on the One to vanilla Android. Essentially turning your regular HTC One into the Google Play edition.
HTC First hasn't been around for all that long and it already has what could be described as an interesting history. The handset launched with AT&T and was originally priced at $99.99. That price quickly dropped to $0.99 and that was followed by speculation of AT&T dropping the handset entirely. Putting that all aside, it looks like the Facebook Home-running First can now get Sense.
DROID DNA talk has been focused on the topic of the HTC One. Specifically, as to whether or not the HTC One is coming to Verizon Wireless as the replacement for the now six-month old DROID DNA. Assuming you are a Verizon user that is eligible, or close to being eligible for an upgrade, those talks were probably what you wanted to hear. On the flip side though, there are plenty of DROID DNA users that are going to be tied to an agreement for quite a bit longer and that group is most likely thinking of updates.
HTC One is rolling out at the moment that will bring the device a plethora of new features. The update, labeled version 1.29.401.13, is set to be released in waves, so if your device doesn't receive the update today, it should be receiving it within the next week or two. The update brings several enhancements to one of the major selling points of the HTC One, its Ultrapixel camera, and it also brings improvements to the device's performance and stability.
HTC One here in the United States. Here with the AT&T version of the HTC One, we've got 4G LTE connectivity and a device build that's essentially identical to the original international edition of the device. What's changed is the radio inside and the software build - but only ever so slightly. Here you've got the addition of a few AT&T-specific apps so you're running right with big blue - otherwise it's all sweet!
HTC haven't been what we'd consider the best in that regard. However, some new details are surfacing this week suggesting they'll be working hard to improve in that area. First up their popular HTC One X which recently got 4.1 Jelly Bean, will apparently get the latest and greatest in June.
