According to Twitter user @evleaks, a user with a great track record for leaks, a HTC One harmon/kardon edition is going to be available from Sprint sometime in the near future. 

This news shows that HTC is looking to take the audio portion of their devices away from Beats Audio. Details about exactly when the device will be released are unknown at this point, but there is no reason to expect it to take too long.

HTC_One_M8_BlinkFeed_TA

HTC’s BlinkFeed was first introduced on the HTC One (M7), so it’s no surprise that it found its way onto the HTC One (M8). BlinkFeed helps you keep track of the news that matters to you. Just like other apps such as this, you can also follow social networks and app data such as your calendar.

HTC makes it very easy to add content. Just tap on the action menu and you will see all the sources you are following. You can easily add content by category or by site. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to add content that isn’t part of BlinkFeed’s pre-selected sites, but it can be done. The good news is that HTC does offer a decent variety of stuff.

In this video, I show you how to setup BlinkFeed with pre-selected sources,  how to add sites that aren’t already included in HTC’s curated list, and how to turn off BlinkFeed if you so wish. So what are you waiting for? Hit the break to get started.

Everything you need to know about Sense 6 on the HTC One (M8)

HTC_One_M8_Wallpaper_Popup_TA

With every major phone, HTC always releases the next version of Sense along with it. This time around, with the HTC One (M8), it’s Sense 6 or “Sixth Sense.” If you’re new to HTC phones, Sense is HTC’s proprietary user interface, or skin they install on top of Android. It has evolved a lot over the years, but they haven’t changed it all that much since Sense 5. That is a good thing because consumers like consistency.

HTC did make a few enhancements with Sense 6, and they appear to be for the better. In this video, I walk you through the UI and explain how things work. I won’t get into BlinkFeed or the Camera interface in this video, but I will very soon. For this guide, I wanted to concentrate on the essentials of the main UI, and help you get comfortable with it. So hit the break and find out everything you need to know about Sense 6 on the HTC One (M8).

HTC One M8 colors

The HTC One (M8) is going to be available in the UK slightly earlier than expected, and you’ll even be able to pick up all three colors, too. Carphone Warehouse is shipping the device tomorrow, in gold, grey, and silver, a few days earlier than the originally anticipated April 7th date. Phones4U is shipping on the 3rd, and Amazon UK is releasing on the 4th, but neither is offering the gold shade of the device just yet. Clove is shipping the grey device this week, with the silver model to follow in April and the gold model coming in sometime around May.

For your contract options, EE and Vodafone are offering the grey and silver, but they don’t even mention the gold color, so that may or may not become available in the coming months.

What color HTC One are you planning on picking up this year?

The All New HTC One (M8) was announced just last week and now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and Recognized Developer beaups have already rooted Verizon’s variant.

The root uses a new exploit which they call HTC WeakSauce which is a pre-packaged vulnerability version developed by jcase. Since both the developers don’t own a Verizon HTC One M8 yet, the exploit just allows you to gain root access to the device though we can expect jcase and beaups to release a complete hack once they get to own the device. » Read the rest

HTC-One-Google-Play-Edition-discount

With the announcement of the All New HTC One (M8) yesterday and its stock Android Google Play Edition, Google has now cut $100 off the price of the old HTC One Google Play Edition (GPE) bringing it down to $499 from $599.

You can now order the discounted HTC One GPE from Google’s online store. The Google Play edition keeps all the hardware of the HTC One without Sense 5. However, the advantage of owning the GPE variant of HTC One is that users will receive the latest Android updates much quicker. If you’re interested in grabbing the smartphone, it comes with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, an 4MP UltraPixel camera, a 2300mAh battery and the latest Android version. » Read the rest

The HTC One (M8) was finally announced today, and once the initial fanfare was over, carriers and retailers began announcing their pricing and availability for the device.

Verizon will be offering a ‘buy-one-get-one-free’ deal on the phone, only for customers who sign a new, 2 year contract. The first phone will cost $199.99.

This is a great deal, especially considering the phone was just released today. More sales like this should come from other carriers, but be sure to jump in on it because it isn’t known how long this will last.

After months of leak after leak after leak, HTC finally took the wraps off of their latest flagship, the HTC One (M8), today in New York City and London. There wasn’t much left to shock us, but that doesn’t take away the fact that this is an amazing phone. Will it be the phone of the year? I will wait until I spend more time with it until I make that decision, but it certainly is off to a good start.
