HTC’s new high-end handset for Asia packs M8-level internals, an upgraded camera and a water-resistant body

Over the past year HTC has consolidated most of its smartphone range into two distinct device families — HTC One at the high end, and Desire in the mid-range and entry-level spaces. But there’s still one outlier — the Butterfly series, which kicked off with the original J Butterfly a couple of years ago. That phone eventually  [Read More...]

Do you have Sprint? Do you like the brand new Moto X, with new custom backs, a larger screen, updated Moto Voice, Moto Display, and a bunch of other cool features? If you said yes to both, then too bad.

Yesterday morning a twitter user asked Motorola “When will the new Moto X be available to Sprint customers????” to which Motorola responded: “The new Moto  [Read More...]

Long-time Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has announced he will step down from his post, effective immediately, to be replaced by two new CEOs. Mark Hurd (formerly of HP) and Safra Catz will both take over as CEO concurrently, though Oracle isn’t handing out the “co-CEO” title to either of them. Though he’s one of the richest people in the world, Ellison isn’t leaving the company — he plans to stay on full time as the executive  [Read More...]

Verizon, Motorola, Droid

After Google had bought Motorola Mobility, one of the aspects of the smartphone world they wanted to focus on was battery life. Their smartphones over the last couple of years have done well, particularly the Droid Maxx series, with battery life lasting over two days with normal usage. As they continue to discover new ways to increase battery life, it seems they want  [Read More...]

For those of you who have been trying to get your hands on a OnePlus One but haven’t been lucky enough to receive an invite, OnePlus’ announcement today should be extremely exciting. OnePlus released a plog post that stated they were going to start a pre-order system for the One. Up until now the One could only be purchased by those who had invites, and those  [Read More...]

Samsung’s metal-clad Galaxy Alpha may not have an official release date in the U.S., but popular device importer Expansys will be happy to sell you one for a cool $ 699. That price is quite high, but shouldn’t shock anyone who’s bought a brand new device from an importer before. The over $ 700 after shipping you’ll pay is getting you a global unlocked model with 32GB of storage, a nice metal frame and an octa-core  [Read More...]

After making its debut on iOS a few weeks ago, the action-strategy game Star Wars: Commander is now available for Android smartphones and tablets. The game, which definitely was inspired by Clash of Clans, is set in the classic Star Wars movie trilogy setting.

I have had my eye on the AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition Quadcopter‎ for quite a while, though I was never quite ready to drop $ 300 for one. So when Parrot offered to send me one, to say I was ecstatic would be an understatement. When the package arrived at my door, I quickly dropped what I was doing and got to work (well, got to play I guess). I popped open the box, pulled out  [Read More...]

I came across this offering for Samsung Galaxy Tab owners and couldn’t believe the price at first. This case for the Galaxy Tab 4 features easy installation with its snap-on design. The dual layer polycarbonate hardshell protects from drops and dings while the port covers keep out dust and dirt. Plus, the screen protector promises to keep your touch-functions silky smooth. The Unicorn Beetle line  [Read More...]
