Judging from an invite that just hit our desks, Verizon and HTC will pull the tarp off a fresh smartphone on Tuesday. The press event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in New York, and we plan to be on hand to find out just what kind of luscious mobile technology will drop from the sky.
I personally hope this event will center around the rumored HTC DLX handset, a 5-inch-screen phone said to be armed to the teeth with a truckload of powerful components and software. These include Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, an 8- or … Read more
Verizon looks to be inching closer to announcing a 5-inch HTC smartphone, with pictures of said device surfacing over the weekend.
The handset will be known as the HTC DLX ("deluxe") and should arrive in time for the Thanksgiving shopping season, according to Android Central.
The source of the photos advised that the HTC DLX comes with 16GB internal storage and a 2500mAh battery, both matching previous rumors. Decked in the same red and black of the Droid Incredible series, the forthcoming device will boast a full 1080p HD display and quad-core processor. In fact, the DLX should … Read more
The Game Developers Conference (GDC) was in San Francisco's Moscone Center this week, and I got a chance to walk the show floor in search of new iPhone games and sample gaming technologies on the horizon for other platforms. As I walked the floor, I was lucky enough to be able to talk to a couple of iPhone game developers, including the guys from Subatomic Studios, developers of Field Runners ($2.99), as well as Phil Hassey who created Galcon, one of the games I mention below.
It's exciting to see the iPhone and iPod Touch on display … Read more
Looks truly aren't everything, as evidenced by this remarkable Sprint Katana DLX. While basic in appearance, this Sprint offering raises the bar in features.
Two words epitomize this gem: speed and availability. Live TV (though not via the superior DVB-H platform), fast Web access, a current--dare I say almost complete--over-the-air music list that easily justifies it's 99 cents per song download, a solid 1.3 megapixel camera, easy contacts transfer, supports up to a 4 gig microSD, etc.
And may I also add, call quality is excellent. It's from Sanyo, which may be the most underrated cell … Read more
The Sanyo Katana DLX is one of the best Sanyo handsets we've seen so far. Not only is it a slim and sleek flip phone, it also comes loaded with lots of features: a 1.3-megapixel camera, EV-DO support, a music player, a microSD card slot, and more. This is certainly a far cry from last year's Sanyo Katana, which didn't have nearly as many features. Take a closer look at the Sanyo Katana DLX with our Katana slide show.
Sprint has just launched not one but two Sanyo Katanas--the Sanyo Katana II and the Sanyo Katana DLX, both of which are slim, sleek, and come in a variety of colors. The Sanyo Katana II is not too different from last year's Sanyo Katana 6600, but it carries a slight cosmetic upgrade and an increased memory of 21MB. The Katana II is available in cosmic black, pink fascination, and midnight steel. Otherwise, its features are the same as its predecessor: a VGA camera, Bluetooth, GPS, a speakerphone, and not much else. The lack of EV-DO is quite disappointing.
However, … Read more
