We are another week into 2016, and we are inching that much closer to the goodness that is sure to come at MWC in February. Over the course of this week, we heard a few interesting tidbits. First, it was reported this week that HTC is to make two Nexus smartphones in 2016, which already has us pretty much flabbergasted. Could 2016 be the year of HTC’s triumphant return?
Next, Verizon introduced FreeBee Data, a sponsored data program, which leads us to believe that Verizon was not very happy about T-Mobile receiving so much flack recently and wanted to get in on the angry mob action. Nobody puts Verizon in a corner.
Other news includes Oracle claiming Google has made a revenue of $31 billion off of Android, we don’t think Saygus will ever ship the V2, and HTC may be holding off release of the One M10 until LG and Samsung dominate MWC.
If you missed any of this excitement, please take a moment to catch up on everything.
