HTC Incredible S blushes on Danish site

There's a listing of a sexy HTC Incredible S in Red trim on the site of a Danish electronics retailer. Aside from it's Fire Engine red paint scheme, there's nothing different from it's official variant. That also means it will have to be purchased unsubsidized, although there's no mention of price or availability on the site listing. The unsubsidized price hovers around $550 here in the US. And chances are, though, that users in Europe will be using the Euro-friendly GSM version we reported on last month.

Dump of HTC HuaShan Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Sense

It's a strange thing to say to those who have no idea what we're talking about, but we definitely love dumps. A dump is essentially all of the information on a phone or an update, or both, including everything you need to virtualize the environment and/or create that environment inside whichever phone you can jam it in. In this case, its an HTC HuaShan's update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the latest installment of Sense. These elements are unavailable in so very many phones at the moment that this situation is exciting for people looking to upgrade their phones to a wacky new higher level.

HTC ChaCha [Hands-On] [VIDEO]

Essentially just a moment ago we revealed some rather intimate pics of the HTC ChaCha, under a glass case because they're not floor-ready, only hardware ready - and we're not entirely sure of that either. Now we've got a hands-on of both the HTC ChaCha and the HCS Salsa. You may notice that the title of this post only includes the HTC ChaCha - this is because we're not nearly as enthusiastic about the HTC Salsa. That's not to say that there's no value in the Salsa, however, as you're about to see, it's just that the ChaCha has such a nice looking keyboard!

HTC Flyer tablet: Active stylus, Evernote sync, HSPA+ and OnLive gaming

HTC has officially announced its new tablet, the HTC Flyer, at MWC 2011 this week. After the rumors of the past few weeks, the Flyer's existence hardly comes as a surprise; however, some of the technology decisions HTC has made - including supplying it with an active stylus - are pretty surprising. Hardware is a slick combination of a 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm CPU with data-only HSPA+, a 4,000 mAh battery, 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen and dual cameras, wrapped up in a unibody-style white plastic and brushed aluminum chassis. A WiFi-only version will follow "pretty soon" after the original HSPA+ model, and both have a custom microUSB port which, as well as working with regular accessories, will also support HTC's new high-power rapid charger. On top there's Android 2.4 Gingerbread with a heavily modified version of HTC Sense to suit the bigger display: a 3D homescreen with floating widgets, a carousel layout in landscape orientation, and a 3D grid in portrait orientation. HTC promises a Honeycomb OTA updated "soon after" the Flyer's launch which, they insisted to us, shouldn't be impacted by what's expected to be minimal carrier modification. Even before then, though, there'll be split-screen apps of HTC's own making, with a multi-pane browser, calendar, email, address book and other software to make the most of the resolution. It's the stylus that really makes the HTC Flyer stand apart, however. HTC has used an unspecified active stylus technology with a battery-powered pen (that has a pressure-sensitive nib and two buttons, defaulting to erase and text-select) and loaded a new app called Notes that supports sketching, handwritten text and annotation of imported photos and clippings. Notes will also record audio, indexing points in the recording with the notes you're taking at the time, for easier later recall. Content stored in Notes can be wirelessly synchronized with Evernote, and HTC expects to release a special touch driver allowing third-party developers to add support to their own apps. HTC user experience manager Drew Bamford told Android Community that the company already has a list of developers who it thinks could do "interesting things" with the Flyer's hybrid touchscreen technology. The Flyer will also debut HTC's new streaming content drive, building on its recent investments in Saffron Digital and OnLive. A new "Watch" app will offer streaming movies and TV shows, while an OnLive app will allow streamed 3D gameplay on the Flyer; using DLNA over WiFi, the Flyer will be able to put OnLive gaming on a nearby compatible TV. Both services are expected to offer pay-per-use and subscription options, and HTC says the same systems are likely to spread to its phones in future. "We've pretty serious about this category," HTC told us last week, "we're not just dipping our toe into the water." The company wouldn't say exactly what was next, but the message is clear - this is definitely not the last tablet we'll be seeing from them in the coming months. The HTC Flyer will launch in early Q2 2011, pricing tba (though HTC says it's aiming for the "high end" to rival the iPad). As for accessories, there'll be a bundled slip-case with a slot for the included stylus, as well as an optional case which converts into a stand, a desktop dock, and a Bluetooth keyboard.

HTC UNVEILS HTC FLYER, THE FIRST TABLET WITH HTC SENSE Aluminum unibody design with touch and pen interaction make HTC Flyer unique First tablet with HTC Watch video service, HTC Scribe Technology and OnLive gaming BARCELONA, SPAIN – Mobile World Congress – February 15, 2011 – HTC, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, today announced its first tablet, the HTC FlyerTM. HTC Flyer blends HTC’s trademark design language with an all-new HTC Sense user experience that has been reimagined for the tablets. Using an intuitive and innovative approach to tablets, HTC Flyer combines natural touch and pen interaction. HTC also announced HTC Watch, a new connected video service that will debut on HTC Flyer tablet, and will collaborate with OnLive Inc. to launch the first cloud-based mobile gaming service on a tablet. “Clearly, smartphones have transformed our lives but as we observed how people use smartphones, computers and other technologies, we saw an opportunity to create a tablet experience that is different, more personal and productive,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “We are progressing down a path as an industry when people will no longer be in a single device paradigm, but have multiple wireless devices for different needs; this is the direction we are moving.” Encased in a sleek aluminum unibody, the HTC Flyer tablet exudes the iconic style and build quality HTC is known for. It is also ultra-light, weighing as little as a paperback book, and compact enough to fit in a jacket pocket only. With a seven-inch display, lightning fast 1.5Ghz processor and high-speed HSPA+ wireless capabilities, the HTC Flyer tablet is perfect for those who have been waiting for a tablet that is both compact and powerful. HTC Sense for Tablet HTC Sense revolutionized smartphones by placing the person at the center of the experience. HTC Flyer’s tablet-focused HTC Sense experience focuses on surprising and delighting people with its gorgeous 3D home screen. A unique carousel of widgets puts a user’s most important content and information at the visual center of the experience. The HTC Flyer tablet also offers uncompromised Web browsing with Flash 10 and HTML 5. HTC Scribe Technology Touch interaction lights up the HTC Flyer tablet experience, but it also offers a groundbreaking pen experience. With the new HTC Scribe Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet, people can rediscover the natural act of writing. HTC Scribe Technology introduces a wave of integrated digital ink innovations that make it easy and natural to take notes, sign contracts, draw pictures, or even write on a web page or photo. HTC Scribe Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet transforms traditional note-taking into smart note-taking by integrating natural onscreen writing with thoughtful and integrated innovations. A feature called Timemark enables you to capture the audio of a meeting in line with your written notes, so tapping on a word in your notes instantly takes you to that exact place in time in the audio recording of the meeting. Notes are also integrated with the calendar so when there is an appointment reminder you are automatically prompted with an opportunity to begin a new note or in the case of recurring meetings, to continue where the last meeting left off. In an industry first, the HTC Flyer tablet also features built-in synchronization with Evernote, the world-leading notes application and service. Streaming Mobile Movies with HTC Watch The HTC Flyer tablet premieres HTC Watch, HTC’s new video download service. The HTC Watch service enables low-cost on-demand progressive downloading of hundreds of High-Definition movies from major studios. The intuitive, natural design of the HTC Watch service makes it easy to find the latest movie and video content, while advanced technology on the back-end enables instant playback over the HTC Flyer tablet’s high-speed wireless connection. Mobile Gaming with OnLive HTC takes mobile gaming to an entirely new level by being the first mobile device in the world to integrate OnLive Inc.’s revolutionary cloud-based gaming service. OnLive is leading in the home gaming market by letting people play top video games on their televisions without the need to buy expensive gaming hardware or software. When integrated fully, the OnLive service will enable customers to pipe the OnLive service through the HTC Flyer tablet’s broadband wireless to their television sets, or let them play directly on the tablet. When integrated on the HTC Flyer tablet, people can play a variety of games, including hits like Assassin’s Creed II, NBA 2K11 and Lego Batman. Availability HTC Flyer will be available to customers globally during Q2 2011.

HTC Incredible S brings “Inside Out” design to Europe

Until now, Verizon has been the only way to get the HTC Incredible, but all that changes with the HTC Incredible S. HTC's third "evolutionary" device launched at MWC 2011 this week, the Incredible S keeps the angular "Inside Out" styling but switches the CDMA radio for Euro-friendly GSM. There's still a 4-inch display, 8-megapixel autofocus camera and dual-LED flash, but now they're joined by a front-facing webcam. Under the hood is Qualcomm's 1GHz single-core MSM8225, just like in the HTC Desire S, though at launch it will be running Android 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense; the company says it plans an update to Android 2.4 Gingerbread "early on." Release is expected in early Q2 2011, with pricing tba. [gallery] Press Release:

HTC Wildfire S revealed: HVGA screen and Gingerbread

The Wildfire may be younger than the Desire, but it's still come in for a refresh at MWC 2011. The HTC Desire S tweaks the original's styling, with some eye-catching piping running around the edge of the plastic shell, but more importantly upgrades the display to an HVGA panel that should ensure broader compatibility with titles from the Android Market. There's also Android 2.4 Gingerbread, though no front-facing camera, unlike the new HTC Desire S. That helps HTC keep the price down, since the Wildfire S is still expected to be the company's entry-level device. It should arrive in late Q2 2011, pricing tba; Vodafone UK has already confirmed to us they will be offering the Wildfire S. [gallery] Press Release:

HTC Sensation trademark triggers tablet Sense speculation

HTC has trademarked "HTC Sensation" in the EU, leading to speculation that the company plans to develop a new version of its HTC Sense interface. One suggestion is that HTC intends to use "Sensation" on its upcoming tablet models; three HTC tablets are expected to debut in the first half of 2011, including the HTC Flyer.
"user interface software; computer hardware and software for user interfacing, telecommunications and telecommunications services; computer hardware and software for transmitting and receiving voice, image, data, audio, video and multimedia content" Partial trademark description
However, the broad description of the "HTC Sensation" trademark - which includes user interface software, computer hardware and software for voice calls, video calls and more, and even accessories - could suggest that this is more a marketing phrase than a specific development for HTC products. HTC could be looking to brand the "HTC Sensation" of using one of the company's devices. [via GottaBeMobile]

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G leaks again: no HDMI confirmed

Verizon just can't seem to keep the HTC Thunderbolt under wraps until its official debut, which we're expecting tomorrow. The 4G LTE smartphone has shown up in the wild again, this time over at AndroidSPIN, who also took the time to run down the specs. Biggest disappointments? The single-core CPU and absence of HDMI. The Thunderbolt 4G has a 1GHz processor - which scored 1926 in Quadrant - together with 8GB of internal storage, a 32GB microSD in the box, a 4.3-inch display, Android 2.2 and HTC Sense. There's also HTC Maps and Navigation, DLNA support and - they believe - an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera. Their source criticized the battery life, however, which we guess is a side-effect of accessing 4G speeds.
