HTC’s launched a new flagship handset for Mobile World Congress 2012, the HTC One X — codenamed Endeavour. Dipping into design notes from The Nokia Lumia line, the One X is a unibody device machined from white polycarbonate that uses Gorilla Glass to protect its 4.7-inch 1280×720 non-pentile Super LCD 2 display. Stunning outside appearances aside, HTC’s newest features an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor for the Global edition and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core for the LTE iteration. Memory specs on the box show 1GB DDR2 and 32GB of built-in storage — 26GB of [...]
Similar to its pre-CES reveals, LG just couldn’t wait for Mobile World Congress to get underway on the 27th before showing off its new Optimus Vu handset. These new pics offer a much clearer look at its 4×3 aspect ratio, 1024×768 res, stylus-friendly 5-inch IPS LCD display, while the official specs confirm rumors it would pack a 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 8MP camera, LTE, 2080mAh battery and Android 2.3 in a slim 8.5mm thick frame. An upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich is promised within three months of its launch, currently scheduled for March on Korean carriers SK Telecom and LG+. Check [...]
Some phones are just too big for Mobile World Congress. That’s Samsung’s thinking, given the triumphant launch of its Galaxy S II — in all its guises. While specifications for Sammy’s next flagship are spinning rumor windmills across the web, there’s nothing particularly concrete on what we’ll be seeing just yet. However, in an official statement received by Techradar, the manufacturer revealed that the phone will be treated to its very own launch — something it’s also plotting for its new Google TV sets. In its own words:
“Samsung is looking [...]
Think it’s time to change our patent system? So does Congress. Yesterday, the Senate approved the America Invents Act by an 89-8 vote that could bring about the most drastic changes to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in five decades. Under the bill, which the House approved back in June, patents would be awarded not to the first person to invent a technology, but to the first one to actually file with the USPTO, bringing US policy in line with protocol adopted in most other countries. It also calls for a streamlined application process and would allow the USPTO to charge set fees [...]

Sony Ericsson has finally stopped teasing, winking, and nodding knowingly and has just come clean — the Xperia Play is most definitely real and it’ll be one of the first devices announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We’re treated to a date and time, February 13th at 6PM GMT, a pair of full frontal shots of the Gingerbread-running, gamepad-wearing smartphone, and the full version of that creepy ad we saw for it a couple of days back. Missed it on the Super Bowl? Scope it out after the break.
We said it at the Show and we’ll say it again, Sony Ericsson just doesn’t know how to keep a secret. One of its phones set for launch at Mobile World Congress 2011 has just slipped the net (again) and this time we have its full product name to boot, the Xperia Neo. You’ll be familiar with this Android 2.3 handset already from mobile-review’s thorough preview a couple of weeks ago, though at the time it was known under its codename of MT15i. This latest hands-on look at the hardware is similarly positive about the Neo, describing it as a well constructed phone and praising [...]
It was expected that Apple will speak some words on the decision of Library of Congress which declares iPhone jailbreak and unlock legal for users on 26 July 2010.
According to cultofmac Apple spokesman said on issue:
“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.”
Further, he said:
Quick, Tweet something important! The Library of Congress just announced that it’s going to begin archiving every public Tweet all the way back to the earliest Tweets made when the service began in March of ’06, to the 140-character nuggets of wisdom you drop in the future.
“That’s right. Every public tweet, ever, since Twitter’s inception in March 2006, will be archived digitally at the Library of Congress,” the government agency wrote on its Facebook page. “That’s a LOT of tweets, by the way: Twitter processes more than 50 million tweets every [...]
