HTC announces the One series at MWC 2012

Yesterday HTC unleashed the One series to the world, a next-gen phone for the company delivering a focus on user experience as they maximize their smartphone in everyday use. The series will come in 3 variants for users to pick from, each of them addressing the needs of their targeted demographics, there’s a list below but we’ll talk about the upcoming features to these ICS powered phones carrying HTC Sense 4.

Camera changes:

ImageSense is a new platform delivering improved sensors, lenses and software to their line of phones. This feels like a natural progression after using so many of their phones over the years since the Droid Eris.  The development doesn’t stop there, HTC also includes a new ImageChip to help deliver fast captures, high quality under hard conditions and quick review options for users.

ImageSense perks: Quick AF, f/2.0 lens, HDR support, Video Pic (capture stills during video), dropbox web storage

Audio changes:

As seen in 2011, HTC has increased its effort into producing higher quality sound output from their devices. Beats by Dr. Dre Audio is now standard across the line allowing for more authentic sound reproduction in any of your apps. Those on Cyanogenmod might already notice this flaw in regular audio playback when using the DSP tools to fix their frequency balances on the phone. Sync manager allows for traditional management to continue on and it also includes a Music Hub to match with favorite services and applications.

HTC One X

  • Polycarbonate unibody design
    • Lightweight with rugged strength of metal
    • (Assuming currently this means it’s laminated Polycarbonate)
  • High Gloss Piano Black finish with matte back.
  • Tegra 3 4-PLUS-1 quad core with battery saver core enabled
  • 12 Core NVIDIA GPU
  • 4.7″ 720p HD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass
  • LTE Support
    • LTE enabled Snapdragon S4 with up to 1.5GHz dual-core CPU’s

HTC One S

  • Metal Unibody design
    • 7.9mm thin
    • Ultra-matte black ceramic metal finish (microarc oxidation formed)
    • Anodized gradient finish
  • 4.3″ screen with Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with up to 1.5GHz dual-core CPU’s

HTC One V

  • Aluminum unibody design
  • Using the design from the HTC Legend
  • Focus on broad market and casual features
  • Improved camera and sound ability

Steam mobile beta arrives on mobile devices!

Always wanted to stay in touch with your Steam friends online? Have you wished you could be at a PC to make use of a sale going on? Now you can, Steam has gone mobile on iOS and Android devices in beta form. All you need is a Steam account and you can get on the list for the… Closed Beta. Yes that means you can download the app but you’ll have to wait until the invites start rolling out for them to allow you in the door. We’re even holding out for the next wave to roll out for deeper impressions on this piece of goodness.

Steam for Android | Steam for iOS

Keep in mind this also uses Steam Guard so you’ll need access to your email account registered to get fully authenticated. Further details are pretty much locked away to the preview screens they’ve launched so far. We’ll keep you posted once we get into the beta and can actually use it a little. In the meantime check out the gallery that has shots from the Android and iOS versions of the app.

ARCHOS brings Honeycomb for under $200

When Amazon brought the Kindle Fire to the market the race turned to a new price, the $200 mark. Today ARCHOS has taken up the challenge and brought the ARCHOS 70b IT, it’s an enhanced 70 IT using an upgraded screen and a 1.2GHz processor to get the job done.

Users will get Android 3.2 with full functionality including a regular marketplace, this means games, books and more will get delivered unrestricted. The full functionality of the OS remains in-tact, leaving the smooth transitions and quick navigation unharmed. Overall it’s shaped up to compete with just about everyone out there.

Here are some key details:

  • Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)
  • 7″ 1024×600 display
  • 512MB of RAM
  • Integrated GPU (unspecified)
  • 1.2 GHz CPU (unspecified, the 70 used an ARM A8)
  • 8GB of storage
  • Micro SD Card support
  • HDMI Output
  • WiFi support

What does all of that mean? The 1.2 GHz CPU should be more than enough to power most games now, in the future that might be a problem though. More titles are starting to favor Dual-Core setups and are blocking single core chips out of the market. For now it should be a beast for processing with lots of speed to last for the years to come, the 512MB of RAM will actually help that stay true. The display resolution is a solid fit for a 7″ screen, dense enough to not be frustrating to read text but not so poor as to look choppy.

Overall ARCHOS is laying down a tablet for the now and it should hold its own for a few years to come in entertainment apps and even more in standard browsing and composition.

The 70b is set to arrive in stores after the holiday season with January arrivals starting at $199, give it a bit of time and dig up more info on the ARCHOS homepage once they get the listing up for the new tablet.

Day 2: Android 10 Billion download celebration continues

We’re in day 2, the consumers are restless for more and we’ve found the next lineup for you guys a little earlier than yesterday.

All of the above apps are 10 cents each and a new list will go live tomorrow with even more offers. Again I nabbed up Fruit Ninja, Reckless Racing and Star Chart for myself. I suggest getting in on it before losing this batch.

Android kicks off 10 billion download celebration with 10 cent apps

Android is becoming a force in the market, with so many phones coming in at all consumer levels the platform has managed to rapidly conquer the field. Google is celebrating that success though as they’ve closed 10,000,000,000 downloads in the market since the launch of the platform, most of  those falling in 2011 as it made up almost 7 billion added downloads this year.

To celebrate they’re putting popular games and apps on sale for a limited time at 10 cents flat.

Keep an eye on the Android Market for any other deals that might pop up. For now this is the official list.

Personally I just nabbed, Minecraft, Asphalt 6, Paper Camera and SketchBook Mobile so I didn’t wait too long.

Update: The Android market notes this will last for 10 days, keep posted for the next update when it hits
