HTC has been in the news a lot lately regarding their failed attempt at a Facebook Phone, again. We've also been hearing a lot of rumors about an HTC One 'Google Edition' to compete with Samsung's stock Android experience phone. With many questions around how the Ultrapixel camera and beats audio features would work without HTC's proprietary software we have an answer, and that is the HTC First Google Edition. Or just call it the HTC Second.
Facebook and HTC finally announced their joint venture into another Facebook Phone, although this time it truly is more of a Facebook Phone than the previous failures. We've been seeing mixed feelings and reports on the entire idea, and it's safe to say we have our own doubts. However, there is one awesome fact about the HTC first. It runs stock Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean under the Facebook Home launcher.
Gizmodo had a spy planted at the event and he was willing to give us all his first impressions of the device.
Engadget has put together a head to head challenge between the newly release Flash 10.1 for 2.2 Nexus One’s and Flash lite that is included with the 2.1 Desire. Who’s going to be the winner?
techland, they had a meeting with Andrew Sherrard, the VP of Production Innovation for T-Mobile and he confirmed that the mytouch 3G will indeed receive the Android 2.1 update. Its currently being tested all we have to do now is wait for the OTA.
Gizmodo, Sprint will opt not to offer support for the Nexus One. I’m not necessarily sold that this is a good move them or not. They sure could use a phone like this in their lineup. Sprint doesn’t exactly have the same assortment of powerful phones as Verizon so this is an odd move for them to make.
earlier suspicion of the LG LU2300 being renamed ALOHA, aka LG VS740 as it’s called in Verizon’s system, has come true. Verizon will have an impressive Android lineup this spring/summer with the addition of this, another 2.1 device that also has a 1GHZ Snapdragon and other great features.
