HTC: We Want To Keep Our Image Positive, So Don't Expect Any 'Cheap, Cheap' Phones From Us

htcHere's an interesting turn of events: just one week after announcing a new budget device, HTC CEO Peter Chou told the Wall Street Journal that the Taiwanese manufacturer will not cater to the low-end phone market. To be exact, he said that "[they] don't want to destroy [their] brand image," so they won't sell "cheap, cheap phones" just to boost shipments. Given the ambiguity of his statements, it's hard to say what his definition of low end actually is. Could he mean they won't ship anymore One V-type phones?

Samsung Retools Galaxy Note 10.1 To Include Slot For S-Pen (In Addition To A Quad-Core Processor)

noteOne of the most surprising things about the Galaxy Note 10.1's appearance at MWC was not that it included Samsung's magical S-Pen peripheral, but the fact that the device lacked a slot to store the advanced stylus.

Those familiar with the original Galaxy Note will remember that it features a convenient slot to house the S-Pen, ensuring that the stylus would always stick with the device, thereby encouraging users to, well, use it.

HTC One X (Tegra 3) Review: It Does Everything But Make You A Sandwich (Coming In Android 5.0)

1In recent memory, there are only 2 phones I've been as excited to lay my hands on as the One X, and those are the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II. There's a good reason for my excitement: this is the first phone to pack Nvidia's excellent Tegra 3 CPU. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, really; other touted features - such as the amazing unibody design, ultra high-quality camera, and beautiful screen - help build upon that excitement.

For those of you who have been waiting for the next wave of phones to drop, it's here. And it's amazing.

Samsung Galaxy S III rumors continue to run wild

galaxy s3Another day, another Galaxy SIII rumor. This one comes from DigiTimes, who's spilled the beans that the Galaxy S III will be featuring a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED+ HD screen and 319ppi (pixels-per-inch) at 1280×720 pixels.

The Aakash tablet in India is selling like hotcakes, and no not because of specs, or design because it cost only $60. Yes that’s right the government subsidized tablet is selling for $60 in India. Kapil Sibal, India’s minister of Human Resource Development has a plan to make the tablet free for students. The government will pay half the price while schools paying the other half making the tablets free for students at the schools. Now that would be a good deal for a tablet.

HzO Lets You Fully Submerge Your Device In Water With No Ill Effects

hzoHow many times have you dropped a phone in water? A puddle, bucket, bathtub, lake, toilet (don't act like it doesn't happen)... whatever. Phone attracting bodies of water are seemingly everywhere, and unless you're willing to put your phone in a ginormous waterproof case, once that beautiful piece of tech meets the life-affirming liquid substance, it's usually hosed (but sometimes rice can help).
