HTC has had a pretty difficult year all told, but with the Windows Phone 8 duo in the 8X and 8S now making their way to market, and a recent licensing agreement reached with Apple, things are certainly looking up for the Taiwanese company. The HTC One X+ on Android offers an even beefier list of specs than the original One X released earlier this year, which wasn't exactly underpowered in itself, and if you want to have even more fun with your One X+, you'll be pleased to learn that the all-in-one toolkit has just been released for the device.
I’m quite certain HTC One X users might be able to recall the leaked Jelly Bean ROM which was doing it’s rounds around the internet quite some time ago. The HTC variant of the leak came during a time when we were seeing various versions of Jelly Bean being leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S III, but unfortunately, the fact that it was classified as being for developers only was enough to stop the majority from going down the route of flashing it to their own HTC devices.
HTC has today officially announced details and specifications of their much talked about HTC One X+ handset that will be available in the Asian and European markets during October. The new physically imposing Android-powered handset is an evolution over the company's previous One X device, with HTC hoping that this latest release will take things to the next level and offer even more power and functionality to consumers.
The HTC One X+ is, all things considered, fairly sought-after for those seeking a powerful, non-Samsung new Android smartphone, and although we’ve seen tidbits of information with regards to the upcoming device, O2 UK has leaked the juicy details through one of its sales magazines.
Announced four days ago, and all set to be launched on September 21st, five days from now, the iPhone 5 will be competing directly against Windows Phone 8 based smartphones like the Nokia Lumia 920 and Android based smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X. We’ve already compared the former two against the iPhone 5, and now it’s time to compare it against the One X.
Google recently announced the next version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean, at their I/O 2012 conference in San Francisco. It will initially only be available for the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Xoom devices. Updates for devices from other manufacturers will come much later on, if they do come at all.
Most of us wince apprehensively when we've dropped our smartphone, cautiously edging towards the ground, praying to the Gods that it remains in full working order. That said, there's certainly a perverse pleasure in watching three gleaming, brand-new specimens of the most powerful, popular devices being dropped from various different heights. Well, there is for me, anyway.
The level of interest and passion that is associated with mobile devices, especially those running the iOS and Android operating systems, is something that has skyrocketed over the last couple of years. With the imminent release of the new iPad and Google making some noise about future versions of the Android OS, it seems that consumer interest is only going to increase in the near future.The release of the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android was made public in the final quarter of 2011, but due to the way Google handles allowing manufacturers to update their firmware, it has seen a relatively tiny uptake, with approximately 1% of Android devices in existence running version 4.0.
