Is The First Facebook Phone To Die For: HTC Design Doesn’t Shout For Attention

Finally, we got a peek into HTC’s Facebook phone, called the First, and so far, we have to say, we like what we saw. First off, it’s got a typical HTC design – minimalistic, nothing that shouts out for attention. The phone isn’t exactly a powerhouse – it’s got a 4.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1280X720 pixels and reminds us of the first iPhone. It’s powered by a decent dual-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM. There’s 16 GB of internal storage, but no microSD card slot and a 2,000 mAh battery. The camera turned to be a bit of a disappointment with a resolution of just 5 MP. For a Facebook phone, focused so much on social networking, we would’ve loved at least an 8 MP offering. As for the front-facing camera, there’s a 1.6 MP one for your video calls. The device runs on [+more]

Not Just A HTC One And Samsung Galaxy S4 Thing Anymore, Facebook Lord Is Coming With Stunner Of A Phone

It’s been a while since we heard about how Facebook was busy working on bringing out a whole smartphone of its own. Given how most of the activity on this popular social network comes via mobile devices, it’s not surprising that Mark Zuckerberg’s creation has decided to take the plunge into the technology space directly. But in a world where Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android mobile OS’s reign supreme and a bunch of others like BlackBerry and Windows Phone fight hard to occupy a distant third place, do we really need yet another smartphone that stands out so much? And as addicted as we are to Facebook, do we really need a completely dedicated Facebook smartphone? Or is an Android or iOS Facebook app more than adequate? Facebook is trying to expand beyond being just a social network that keeps you connected with your friends. With its active push for [+more]

The Secret Of HTC Bringing Up Its Signature Phone HTC One Against Samsung Galaxy S4

They say if you don’t have a winning strategy, learn what your competition is doing right and tweak yours that way. Looks like that is going to be HTC’s plan for 2013. HTC didn’t manage to make too much of an impression in the Android market last year with its One X and One X+ handsets, which eventually just ended up confusing the consumers. It started 2012 with the launch of its first flagship, the One X, which didn’t end up gaining much popularity mostly due to its inadequate 1800 mAh battery and dual-core processor. And shortly after its launch, HTC followed it up with an upgraded flagship, the One X+, which launched about 8 months later. The One X+ with its quad-core processor and bigger battery surely had good specs, but HTC loyalists who picked up the One X ended up feeling letdown, stuck with a more obsolete flagship. [+more]

Bye-Bye BlackBerry Z10: Pentagon Employees Can Choose Apple iPhone Or Android Smartphones Instead

BlackBerry has been steadily losing ground to iPhones and Android based smartphones, and looks like its recently launched BlackBerry 10 OS hasn’t helped stem the tide much. Many companies have chosen to quit BlackBerry and let their employees use iPhones or Android phones as corporate smartphones. But BlackBerry still had a significant share of enterprise customers in the government, which unfortunately looks like is also getting smaller by the day. The latest to ditch BlackBerry is Pentagon, which announced its decision to let users pick iPhones or Android-based phones instead of the BlackBerry if they wish to starting from February 2014. However, employees can continue to use BlackBerry too if they like. 470,000 of the 600,000 smartphones in use at the Pentagon are from BlackBerry, but this new ruling will definitely pull away a chunk of this share. While Pentagon has clearly stated that it is not in favor of [+more]

Samsung’s Growth Story: Samsung Galaxy S3 Vs Apple iPhone 5 Vs Google

google-samsung-patent deal

Maybe all’s not as hunky dory in the Google-Samsung friendship as we’d all thought. Andy Rubin, who heads Google’s Android division, has admitted that the company worries about Samsung becoming more than just a partner and on to a threat to Google’s business. Rubin apparently made these remarks during a recent Google event indicating that there could be some friction between these two companies in the future. He also reportedly justified Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility as a safety net to protect Google from Samsung’s constantly growing footprint in the world of Android. Samsung has emerged as the world leader in smartphones, especially over the past couple of years, all thanks to the Android OS. And there seems to be no stopping the success wave that it is riding. From being a mere OEM (original equipment manufacturer) supplier, Samsung went on to make the world’s best smartphone, the Galaxy S3 [+more]
