I was just browsing the HTC Australia website when I noticed the date and location on the HTC One X was different to that of the other devices. It says “Mon, Apr 2 – Sydney” — after taking a look at the trusty ol’ calendar, the 2nd of April is indeed a Monday. Will we see the HTC One X launching on that date? Quite possibly, yes. What carrier will it be launching on? Our bets are on Optus, as they’ve been giving a few hints and teases over the past few days.

If you were wondering how the menu button would appear on HTC’s new range of ‘One’ series devices, be confused no more. MoDaCo have taken some screenshots that show that the menu button will appear as an on-screen button when the app needs it (ie. a majority of the time). Most of the feedback so far seems to be that this is the stupidest implementation ever and we tend to agree. Why couldn’t HTC just add the button to the capacitive line up below the display? Surely this would have saved screen real-estate. What do you guys think?
Telstra: HTC Sensation, Velocity 4G to get Android 4.0 in early March; Galaxy S II, Xperia Arc S in early April
Telstra have recently updated their software updates page on their website. New additions include the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Sensation And Velocity 4G to go ahead this month. The Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Update has been handed over to Telstra for testing and they’re expecting an early April release — we’re thinking it’ll be late April. Telstra are also hoping to received the ICS update from Sony for the Xperia Arc S in the middle of this month for an early April release. Props to Telstra for keeping us and their customers in the loop[Read More...]
Now that HTC have got all their announcements out of the way, it’s time for all the rumours, build-ups and confirmations to start happening in regards to which carrier will be getting which devices. First off it’s the HTC One X going to Optus. They’ve already teased the device on their Facebook page and the device, along with the rest of the ‘One’ series, is listed on HTC Australia’s website. There’s no release date or pricing yet — we’ll wait for an official announcement. Next up is the One XL, which is the LTE variant of the One X. The[Read More...]
HTC have finally announced their brand new ‘One’ series of Android smartphones at Mobile World Congress. After a fair few leaks and a build up by HTC themselves, the One X, One S and One V are now officially a part of the HTC family. All devices run Android 4.0 with Sense UI 4.0 and are expected to launch in various markets starting in April (we have local launch details coming up soon). For now, specs: HTC One X HTC One S HTC One V CPU 1.5GHz Quad-Core Tegra 3 1.5GHz Dual-Core MSM8260A 1GHz Single-Core GPU (ULP) GeForce GPU[Read More...]
Greek website FullGSM managed to scrape these photos of the upcoming HTC One X when HTC accidentally leaked them onto their own website a little too early. The One X is going to be announced tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and just might be the phone of the show, seeing as Samsung is a no-show with its Galaxy S II successor. The specs list is one to behold and starts a new era of high-end Android smartphones. 4.7-inch Super LCD2 1280×720 Display (w/ Gorilla Glass) 1.5GHz Tegra 3 (4-PLUS-1) CPU 32GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, DLNA[Read More...]
Telstra’s first shot at a 4G smartphone, but is it really worth it? Telstra have been marketing their new 4G network like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, and to some of us it really is. 4G brings a whole new level of wireless data speeds — we’ve seen up to and beyond 35Mbps down and 15Mbps up. While Telstra have been selling 4G modems for a few months now, they’ve only recently announced this, the HTC Velocity 4G, as their first 4G smartphone available to consumers. It’s also important to us, because it runs our favourite OS, Android.[Read More...]
Pocket Now look to have scored themselves a press render/image of the upcoming HTC One X (codename Endeavor). The device is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress alongside the One S and One V. Specs-wise the One X is looking to kick some butt: 4.7-inch 1280×720 Display NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU @ 1.5GHz Android 4.0.3 w/ Sense UI 4 HSPA 850/900/1900/2100MHz 8MP / 1.3MP Cameras 1GB RAM 16/32GB Internal Storage If HTC play their cards right, this just might be the phone to bring them back into the black. Maybe if they partnered up with Telstra for some[Read More...]
HTC Australia are counting down the days until Monday on their Facebook page. Why? Well it’s the start of Mobile World Congress on Monday! HTC have had at least 3 phones leaked in the past few weeks — HTC One X (Endeavor), HTC One S (Ville) and HTC One V — which are all expected to be officially announced. What we’re most excited about is the fact it’s HTC Australia counting down, which normally means that whatever is going to be announced is going to make its way to Australia at some point in time. Let’s hope it’s the HTC[Read More...]
Telstra has advised Desire S users on its Crowd Support website that the update to Android 2.3.5 is going to be pushed out by HTC over the next 24 hours. This news was posted on Friday and considering it’s now Sunday evening, we’re guessing it’s on its way to users now. I wanted to share with you the current status of the HTC Desire S 2.3.5 update. This update has been approved and HTC have told us that the FOTA update will commence deployment within the next 24 hours. The update is happening over the air (FOTA), so you won’t[Read More...]
HTC announced via their global Facebook page that they would be updating the HTC Rhyme to Ice Cream Sandwich. While they were specifically talking about the North American version, we can surely think that they’ll push it out to the global version that Optus sells. While we’ve reached out to Optus for any official word on the update, it’s nice for owners of the Rhyme to know their device won’t be left behind just yet.
Pocket Now and Slashgear are reporting that the two HTC devices floating around the internet at the moment — HTC Endeavor and HTC Ville — are expected to launch at Mobile World Congress as the HTC One X and HTC One S respectively. It makes sense as HTC are no strangers to sticking with a name and then adding variations to it such as the HTC Sensation range which included the Sensation XE and Senastion XL. The One X (Endeavor) will feature NVIDIA’s Quad-Core Tegra 3 CPU which will be clocked at a whopping 1.5GHz and will make use of[Read More...]
A leaked RUU (ROM Update Utility) for the HTC Endeavor leaked onto the internetz, and with it came a flurry of screenshots and images showing off the new UI features of Sense UI 4.0 — HTC’s take on Ice Cream Sandwich. While most Android savvy users are against Sense UI, it appears as though HTC are taking a step back and toning it down to act a little bit more like stock Android (check out the video of the HTC Ville). From the looks of the images, HTC are bringing in more themes and have scrapped their own dock in[Read More...]
