How did the Grammy Awards miss this hit from HTC CEO Peter Chou and chairwoman Cher Wang?


HTC had their end of the year party as they usually do around the Chinese New Year (February 19). We usually get some interesting things out of it like the time they officially announced the “M7″ name of the original HTC One. However this year takes it up a notch.

CEO Peter Chou and chairwoman Cher Wang took the stage for a little diddy called “We Are One,” which is about HTC’s personality. Chou even strapped on a guitar. So while you were watching the Grammy Awards last night with all those amazing performances (from some you may have never heard of), you missed this very special “one” indeed.

Video is after the break and we definitely want to hear your comments!!

HTC closes last year’s final quarter with small profit, still maintains growth


While HTC did finish the final quarter of 2014 with a profit, the amount was not very much.

Sprint updating the HTC One (M8) and LG G3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop next week


Sprint is on fire when it comes to updating devices to Lollipop. If the HTC One (M7) and the Galaxy S 5 wasn’t enough, how about the HTC One (M8) and the LG G3? A leaked document shows that the HTC One (M8) will get Android 5.0 Lollipop on February 13 and the LG G3 will get the tasty treat on February 16. If you happen to own the Harman Kardon edition of the One (M8), don’t fret, because it’s included in the update as well.

Of course, it should be noted that “subject to change” is listed so if anything goes wrong with the final testing, Sprint will delay the launch. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
