There was a sparse amount of information listed for this device other than the company name. GSM bands listed point to it being functional on AT&T and T-Mobile, but no CDMA. There were LTE bands listed in this certification, but without more details, we can’t be sure if those are meant to be used in the US or elsewhere.  (more…)

HTC Unveils Limited Edition Captain America S.H.I.E.L.D. One (M8)

Instead of a perfectly-placed Iron Man promotion (the phone is metal and RDJ is a paid spokesperson), HTC has decided to instead go a different route, teaming up the folks behind the new Captain America movie to produce a special limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. One (M8) smartphone.

The streak continues, as yet another title has launched onto Google Play as an NVIDIA SHIELD exclusive.
