In likely an attempt to clear their shelves, Expansys is hosting a deal on select Google Play Edition devices. As of right now, customers can pick up the G Pad 8.3 GPE, Galaxy S4 GPE, One (M7) GPE, and Z Ultra GPE with big savings. (more…)
One of the more interesting Android accessories that we have seen over the past year came when HTC introduced the Dot View Case for the One M8. A weird looking accessory that is also strangely functional, it certainly gives the One M8 a distinctive look in comparison to other “smart” cases and covers.

Thanks to cost-cutting measures and device sales in developing markets, HTC has turned a profit in Q2, netting NT$2.26 billion ($75.6 million). That’s an 80 percent increase from last year’s Q2, and a notable improvement over the company’s losses of NT$1.88 the previous quarter.

We weren’t sure if the device would be called Nexus 9 or Nexus 8, but did know at the time that it would carry two code names of “flounder” and “volantis” that everyone should be on the lookout for. Thanks to a new report that surfaced over the weekend, we may have a better grasp on the name, a full set of specs, and price points depending on the amount of storage. (more…)
After a few quarters of disappointing sales numbers and returns, HTC is in the middle of a pretty big slump right now. For this year’s annual investment meeting, I’m sure HTC wasn’t expecting a warm welcome, but they certainly were not expecting to be bombarded with the question: where is my free phone? (more…)
