People are quick to blame Android carriers and manufacturers for not pushing out updates as soon as they are released for Google, but HTC wants us to know that there’s a lot more that goes into the process than we might think. HTC has released an infographic that shows all the individual stages of development, starting from when Google first provides the source code to the eventual OTA update that gets pushed out to customers’ devices.
In addition to the graphic, HTC has created a landing page that shows the current status of Android 4.4 for your HTC device. You can check out the infographic after the break.
The screen is one of the most important parts of a phone, and that’s especially true for the larger smartphones we’ve become accustomed to. Samsung knows that, and they generally put some of the industry’s best screens in their high-end devices.
Today, they’ve released an infographic detailing the screens on Samsung mobile phones dating all the way back to their first analog phone, up to their latest Galaxy Note 3. It’s a pretty cool graph that shows when color was introduced to mobile phone screens, when Samsung first introduced a touch screen, and a few other interesting bits of information.
You can check out the infographic below. Maybe this is Samsung’s way of building up hype about the different aspects of their inevitable Galaxy S 5?
With the HTC going with humor for their advertisements, its no surprise that a new infographic does the same. Due to the imminent launch of the HTC One Max, the Taiwanese company has decided to create an infographic based on “Great Trios in History.” The reason for trios is because the One Max will join the One and the One Mini. Also being used in the infographic is the use of HTC’s three letters. As we saw with the Robert Downey Jr. ads, the company is doing a play on their name. Among the funnier trios are Destiny’s Child, Star Wars Original Trilogy, and Henry VIII, Catherine, and Anne.
Since the introduction of cell phones back in the 1970′s, mobile technology has progressed faster than many had ever anticipated. To better portray the broad history that has surrounded the mobile industry, HTC has composed a clever chart detailing the various milestones that have been reached over the years. From the world’s first fire hydrant-enabled mobile phone, to the infamous Apple Maps fiasco of late, HTC hasn’t missed a beat.
The infographic seems to be playing up the company’s latest line of Windows Phone devices, though it does provide some valuable insight into the Android world as well. Jump past the break to witness “The Evolution of the Smartphone.” » Read the rest
With Google‘s latest boast of over 900,000 daily activations and sales of Apple’s iPhone proving to be a worthy runner up, it stands to reason that there are quite a few smartphones in circulation. The US Census Bureau for 2011 told us that there were 311,591,917 people living in the United States. Digital marketing and design company Steadyrain estimate that 232,000,000 Americans are equipped with a mobile communication device, an incredible two thirds of the population.
There’s plenty of other fascinating information covering everything from web browsing to video streaming however you don’t need to take it from me. Check out the full infographic below and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments.
I’m not a big fan of infographics, but once in a while one of them interests me a little. The problem is you never know how many people were surveyed or if it was done scientifically at all. Anyways, this latest one comes from Startapp and it’s entitled “Following the White Rabbit.” They surveyed Android developers exclusively and some of the notables is that 53% of those surveyed own a Samsung phone while 22% own an HTC phone. Most interesting is only 5% own a Motorola phone.
Android developers also seem to concentrate more on Android as 62% say they only develop for Android while 37% also develop for Apple’s iOS
As far as number of apps, 53% of respondents published 6 – 9 apps, while 32% are still working on it. As far as other app stores, not surprisingly, the Amazon App Store is the favorite at 66%. Hit the break for the full infographic.
Many of you are probably excited, at the same time curious, about the possibilities of Google’s upcoming Project Glass.

Thinking along those same lines, the creative folks at Seetio have created a infographic outlining future possibilities for Google’s pet project known as Glass. To see what these guys think the eye-wear could eventually accomplish is quite interesting and can be seen after the break. I mean, they claim this could be the end of tablets and smartphones!

I’m not too big on infographics, but this one from Life360 about Moms and smartphones seemed interesting.
They found that Mom’s were three times more likely to own an Android smartphone as opposed to an iPhone. What was interesting was the results on if they were willing to give up their smartphone for ONE day. According to the survey, 32.4% of Moms would give up their smartphone for a day at the spa, 15.5% for new clothes, a new bag, or new shoes, and 11.8% for dinner at their favorite restaurant. Of course there are those that would never give it up even if they got paid, and that was the case for 28.7% of the Moms.
