HTC Nexus Tablet To Get A Keyboard Case

Everyone here at Ausdroid loves a good Nexus rumour. Today another one has surfaced from a couple of different sources. At this stage it seems a given that the next Nexus tablet will be made by HTC. The rumour today is not about the device per se but about the accessories associated. Two days ago there was the tweet from the folks who seem to have taken over from EvLeaks, @upleaks: HTC T1 accessories; Magic Cover Leather(Natural/Black), Magic Cover TPU(Coral Amethyst/Mint Indigo/Lime Stone/Indigo Black), Keyboard Folio. — @upleaks (@upleaks) August 30, 2014 They all seem standard fare except for the[Read More...]

HTC announces the Desire 510 – A budget mid-range LTE enabled smartphone

HTC have added a new smartphone to its Desire family of mobile phones, announcing the Desire 510 – a mid-range 4G/LTE enabled budget device that comes with Android 4.4 and Sense 6 on board. The Desire 510 does offer pretty decent specs for a mid range budget device. With that in mind, HTC CEO Peter Chou is aware that budget devices should offer a great experience for consumers purchasing lower end phones, saying Owning the latest and greatest technology shouldn’t be reserved for those with the highest budgets. People today should expect their smartphones to double as mobile entertainment hubs.[Read More...]

HTC Nexus tablet certified by the WiFi Alliance

HTC Nexus tablet certified by the WiFi Alliance

The much rumoured HTC Nexus tablet – codenamed ‘Volantis’ or ‘Flounder’ – is very much anticipated after Google let the 1-year release window for their Nexus 7 line slide without any new announcements. The tablet has apparently quietly slipped through the WiFi Alliance – the certification body for WiFi capable devices – earlier this month. It’s an AOSP, Android L device, which is a great sign that this is indeed a Nexus device, with Google traditionally releasing a reference device for each new software platform. The listing, as you can see, also uses the fishy ‘Flounder’ code-name which Google traditionally[Read More...]

Beta version of HTC’s Zoe expected for all Android phones this week

We’ve been waiting a while for HTC to make good on its promise – made at the time the One M8 launched – to bring BlinkFeed to all Android phones, but in the meantime The Verge reports that we’ll see a beta of Zoe this week. Zoe in its current form – seen on last year’s One and this year’s One M8 – makes short highlight videos from your photos and sets them to music.

HTC to release 64-bit Android phone

HTC to release 64-bit Android phone

HTC has been putting much effort into producing their lower-cost Desire range of phones, with an eye to staunching the financial down turn of previous years where they concentrated on the more premium end of the market. But the Desire range could be the first series of phones in which HTC introduce the latest Qualcomm 64-bit processor, with leaker @upleaks advising a new HTC phone will be coming soon with a Snapdragon 410 processor. The phone, pictured above, will be going to Sprint in the US, but that’s just one variant, it’s always possible, indeed likely, that it could see[Read More...]

HTC Built Nexus 9 ‘Volantis/Flounder’ apparently certified in Korea

HTC Built Nexus 9 ‘Volantis/Flounder’ apparently certified in Korea

Since Google appears to have foregone releasing an update to the Nexus 7 line-up and rumours began to emerge of a HTC built Nexus 9 – codenamed Volantis/Flounder, the Android world has been waiting for more information. Since the rumoured release date for the tablet was around October/November, the expectations for more information has been low, but maybe, just maybe the Nexus 9 may have just surfaced briefly in Korea. The Korean equivalant to the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Radio Research Agency (RRA), has just certified a tablet made by HTC, which also carries a model # associated[Read More...]
