We spent some time with the HTC Titan and HTC Radar at IFA 2011, and brought your our in-depth hands on reviews, complete with a multitude of pictures and words.
But if you’re wondering how Windows Phone Mango actually runs on the phone, we’re here to help too, with our video of both the Titan and the Radar in all their glory.
One’s a behemoth of a handset with a 4.7-inch screen, and the other a more ‘standard’ phone with a brushed aluminium chassis – which will you choose when they land in the coming months?

Here is the first Honeycomb leak for the Flyer in RUU form. Now that I see someone else has access to the leak my source has authorised me sharing it.
I’ll be posting it pre-rooted and MCR’d etc. next week when my new Flyer arrives, in the interim, flash with caution – at your own risk – and enjoy!
EDIT: It’s not recommended to flash this ROM on it’s entirety – I will release a fully tested build soon. This is recommended for developers only!
Please note HTC classes this as an early Beta!
The number of Android devices officially compatible with the Netflix streaming app has more than doubled in v2.3, growing from 9 to 24. Last night the description was updated with a new list of devices but the actual updated APK only started pushing this afternoon, bringing Netflix not only to the Lenovo tablet announced last night but also to the Droid 3, HTC Thunderbolt, Motorola Atrix, several Galaxy S phones including the Epic 4G and Fascinate and more. Fragmentation is clearly still an issue for DRM’d apps like this and Hulu Plus, but at least now there’s a growing number of recent [...]
Explanation: Netflix officially realeased for 5 devices because those are the ones that the devs tested with. They knew there would be issues with untested devices (fcs, crashes, no video/sound, etc) so they coded the app to refuse to play on anything but the tested 5. All this hack does is circumvents that restriction by making the app think you are on one of the supported ones. There some devices which seem to work fine with the app but were never tested by the devs. Such devices as the nook color, the LG optimus S/V. These work perfectly after this while others still may have problems.
The first benchmarks of Samsung’s 1.2GHz Galaxy S II — we saw the 1GHz variant tested previously — are rolling in, and it’s fast. Almost suspiciously so. Its speedy dual-core Exynos CPU pulled off a 3,053 in Quadrant and scored double what the similarly specced HTC Sensation did in Smartbench2011. Those scores also represent a more than threefold improvement over the original Galaxy S. Of course, these are purely synthetic benchmarks and may not translate into an equally improved experience in day to day use. We’ll know for sure when we get our hands on one [...]
Gingerbread may not be a very likely option, but T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide users can now get a dessert of another sort (albeit a slightly stale one), as the phone has finally received an update to Android 2.2 (a.k.a. Froyo). Unfortunately, there’s apparently no over-the-air update planned, and the software required for the installation is Windows-only, so anyone with a Mac looking to upgrade will have to find a PC-using friend willing to help them out. If you’re all set to go, however, you can download the update from HTC at the source link

In December 2010 HTC has released YouTube app for HTC WP7 devices but now the app is hacked and available for all Windows Phone 7 smart phones, in result of the efforts by Tom Hounsell the XDA team member.
You can grab HTC Youtube app for non-HTC Windows Phone 7 via following download link.

The buttonless wonder we once knew only as “HTC’s upcoming flagship device” has today been revealed to be the Incredible S. It’s a new 4-incher that emulates the Droid Incredible’s successful industrial design, but deviates in a lot of other ways, including the fact it’ll launch globally — at some point in early Q2, but with only Android 2.2 on board. We got to see one in person ahead of today’s unveiling and we have to say it feels like a very solidly and neatly built pocket machine. The capacitive buttons’ labels are not painted on [...]
