Leaked ‘All New HTC One’ ad reveals ‘Duo Camera’ function


You have seen everything there is to see about the All New HTC One right? What’s that? You still don’t really know much about what the two back cameras will do? That is about the only thing we haven’t heard too much about, and considering it might be the most important feature on the phone, it would be nice to know a little more.

Well wonder a little less this morning because a leaked ad for Telstra in Australia gives us more details. First, it will be called the “Duo Camera” which seems appropriate.

Sprint chairman wants to try and purchase T-Mobile


It’s not exactly a well-kept secret that Sprint is interested in acquiring T-Mobile since SoftBank took over the carrier last year.

They’re still working closely with banks and antitrust authorities to try to get the finer details worked out before moving forward with any kind of deal. Read more

Could Google drop Snapdragon in favor of Intel’s chip for Nexus 8?



With Google’s Nexus 8 tablet rumored to be released this July alongside Google I/O, several other rumors about the device has surfaced. One glaring rumor is that Google is opting for Intel’s Moorefield CPU rather than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, which is currently being used in their Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 5 devices. The Moorefield chip clocks in at a max of 2.33 GHz and is powered by a PowerVR G6430 graphics engine, so either way, there’s no doubt that the rumored Nexus 8 will be a powerhouse whichever direction Google decides to take.

Of course, these are just rumors so take all of this with a grain of salt. Either way, we’ll all know for sure this coming Google I/O 2014!  On a side note, do you guys think Google will unveil a new OS, or next iteration of Android (4.5, 5.0)? Or will they still stick with KitKat and just bump it up a notch to 4.4.3?
