When HTC announced a “See What’s Next” event in London on Sept 1st, speculation began on what “phone treats” the Taiwanese giant had in store. It now appears that while HTC will be unveiling two new phones, neither of them will be Android based but will be running the latest Windows Phone OS, Mango.
The HTC Eternity, a Mango phone with a 3.7-inch display, is reportedly heading to AT&T while the HTC Omega, a 4.5-inch Mango, is slated for T-Mobile USA. Additional phone specifications are spotty right now but it’s worth noting that the Eternity is being listed as having a 3.7-inch display while early reports were saying it was going to be a full inch larger at 4.7″.
There are no exact launch dates at this time but don’t be surprised if they come sooner than expected. Microsoft knows what’s at stake here and will put its considerable weight into getting a Mango based phone into as many hands as possible. With a little luck, Microsoft might actually make more money from its Windows Phone platform next quarter than it does from Android.
Now that would be something worth holding a press conference for.
If you’re going to be in the London area in a couple of weeks and want to experience “a few phone treats” then HTC has got a little something for you. The Taiwanese giant is holding a meet-up event on Thursday, Sept 1st from 6:30pm-11:00pm. The company issued the public invite via its official UK Facebook page. As the company touts to “come see what’s next”, one has to wonder what’s in store for us. Is it possible we could see devices like the HTC Ruby or the Puccini tablet aka the Jetstream? There’s only one way to find out, be there or be square. Hit the break for more info and feel free to leave your predictions in the comments below.
You just got served fool! That has to be what the main Zombie from Plants vs Zombies was thinking after he ran circles around the infamous “Bug Droid”, Google’s popular dancing mascot. Sony Ericsson held their popular GamesCon event, and of course, everyone’s favorite fast moving Android was there. However, the show was quickly stolen by the fast footed brain eating Zombie rockin’ some pretty sweet moves yo. Check out the video for yourself and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.
Samsung will be releasing their new TouchWiz for tablets next week Wednesday, August 3rd, and they must be proud of it because they are going to host an event in New York City. They will do a full demonstration and actually sideload the update on to your Tab.
The general public will be able to join in on the festivities from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Keep in mind that if you choose this method, the update will wipe your data. If you can’t make it to event, don’t worry, because the over-the-air update (OTA) will happen shortly after. The good news is that the OTA update will not wipe your data.
Did you catch HTC’s little shindig in London yesterday? If you missed it, don’t fret, check out the 27 min long intro for the the latest and greatest HTC device to hit the market. The Sensation is sure stirring up the masses in great anticipation. As a T-Mobile customer myself, I highly look forward to getting my hands on the Sensation 4G when it rolls out. For now, I’ll have to just enjoy these videos of the device from a distance. Enjoy the video and let us know what you think of the device in the comments below.
It looks like HTC is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to mobile technology. After making a huge presence at Mobile World Congress and CTIA, they’ve now begun sending invites to the press in Europe enticing them to come “see what’s next”. The event will be held on April 12th at 1:30 pm (GMT) in London. No one knows for sure what HTC has hidden up their sleeves, but the anticipation is killing us. Will we see the HTC Evo 3D launching on Sprint in the US? Maybe. We saw HTC unveil most of their arsenal at MWC and CTIA a couple of weeks ago. As a T-Mobile customer, I’m hoping they’ll mention something about the HTC Pyramid, personally. But who knows, maybe it will be a brand spanking new device to which man’s eyes have never gazed upon. One thing is for sure, don’t forget to check back in with Talk Android on the 12th of April, because we’ll be covering the event closely. Let us know what you’re hoping is revealed at the event in the comments below.
Google has an event called I/O each year since 2008 for Google to share with developer communities what it’s plans and strategies are for Google’s products over the next year. In 2009, the I/O event sold out in 90 days, in 2010 it sold out in 10 days. This years’ event sold out in 59 minutes at $450 a seat! While it’s great to be there, the event will also be streamed live on Google’s youtube page for all who couldn’t attend as well.
We expect to hear about Android, and how Google plans to blend Android Gingerbread into Honeycomb for smartphones. We’ll hear more about Chrome OS for netbooks as it’s supposed to launch this summer, and no doubt we’ll hear about Google TV, and how they plan to get rid…*cough* keep it alive after what many call a “failed” launch.
The event takes place May 10-11 2011 in San Francisco. Stay tuned!
As we mentioned a few days ago, our inbox was graced with an invite from Google to attend their headquarters in Mountain View for an “in depth” look at Honeycomb. And though we’ve seen a bit of the new OS at CES, we’re looking forward to grabbing a bigger tidbit from the event. Well, that day is here and we’re all underway. If you’re not able to attend the event in person, Google will be streaming the event live at 1pm eastern on the search giant’s YouTube page. There’s also a big chance that we’ll hear more on the new online Android Market and music services. Enjoy!
Is there anything better than waking up to your inbox and receiving some good news? Yeah, how about an inbox with an email from Google inviting you to an Android event at the Googleplex in Mountain View? That’s right, Google has stated on Feb 2nd, they will be holding an event to discuss “an in-depth look at Honeycomb, Android ecosystem news and hands-on demos”. We can’t help but wonder if Google has something new in store for us. It’s not like Google to just hold an event for a mere summary of Honeycomb. Maybe we’ll hear some discussion on all of these 2.4 sightings or whether or not Honeycomb will be configured to operate on a smartphone? We can hope can’t we? Yes we can, and shall. In any event, stay tuned to Talk Android because we’ll be covering the event and reporting back to you first hand.
Google has also provided a way for you to stream the event live, for those of us who sadly, can’t make the event. What do you want to see come out of all of this ? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
