Live From Facebook’s “Home” Announcement at 10AM PDT, Live Video Included

facebook event

Stop the rumors, stop the guessing, stop the wondering why on Earth the world needs a Facebook phone. Well, you can continue to question that last part since we’ll probably never fully understand it, but the rest will be answered at 10:00AM PDT, today. That’s right, Facebook and Sir Zuck will unveil their “new home on Android” in a short while, and we’ll be there live to bring it all to you. Their new product may be called the HTC First. It may look like this in a variety of colors. And there is a good chance it’ll be nothing more than a 3rd-party launcher with a Facebook focus. No matter what, our attention this morning will be focused on it, hoping for a big surprise.

If you have any last predictions, now is the time.

I’m going with, $199 phone (full retail price), no contract, HSPA+ (no LTE), and sold unlocked at all sorts of retailers like Wal-mart and Target. Similar move to what Google has done with the Nexus 4, but since the rumored specs for this Facebook sound like something out of late 2011, it should cost pennies.

Live: Samsung Galaxy S4 Event

Samsung Unpacked

Everything goes down tonight, 4:00PM Pacific (7:00PM Eastern)! You know what I’m talking about, the Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling event. We’re here in NYC to cover it, but Samsung has gone ahead and made a livestream available (embedded below) so that the world can join in on the festivities. We may see something similar to the device that has leaked a couple of times over the last two days, or Samsung may win the day again, proving that that was nothing more than a troll job. I can’t wait to find out for sure, so that the speculation and confusion can end.

Live From HTC’s One Event in NYC

HTC-ONE-M7-Noir-Blanc

We’re live at HTC’s big event in NYC where the world is expecting them to announce their new flagship smartphone, the One. Nothing is official at this time, but the device has appeared in a variety of press renders and early pictures leading up to this moment, so we at least sort of know what to expect in terms of looks. When it comes to the technology used inside to make this phone standout, we are still pretty clueless, and that’s exciting.

Stick with us as we report live from the event. Afterwards, we will likely have a chance to get our hands all over the device, so you may as well hang out all day.  (more…)
