Despite the name HTC wasn’t trying to stay under the radar of AT&T and Sprint customers with this alternative to the recently launched Glacial Silver One as they had previously stated that it would be available in the coming weeks. You still can’t hit the buy button on either site, however, HTC One fans are used to timelines slipping at this point so it should be of some comfort to see evidence that both carriers are likely ready to flip that switch soon.

The Verizon HTC One, which earlier this month was rumored to be hitting Verizon in March and was more recently said to not be coming to the network, again sees its future hanging in the balance as HTC USA, which previously said that the HTC One would not be coming to Verizon, has since deleted that information leaving its release up in the air.
HTC and Microsoft go a long way back when the company used to exclusively make smartphones running Windows Mobile. Naturally, then, when Microsoft released Windows Phone, HTC was onboard with some really neat devices at launch.
Once again, HTC was onboard at launch with two new phones, the 8X and the 8S.
Today we are going to take a look at the 8X, the company’s flagship Windows Phone device.
If there is one thing you can always expect from HTC, it is to produce some attractive looking devices. At times, however, the company truly outdoes itself and the 8X is one such example.
The District Court of Mannheim ruled on Friday that HTC did not infringe on Nokia’s EP0812120 patent covering a “method for using services offered by a telecommunication network, a telecommunication system and a terminal for it”.
Nokia’s complaint was aimed at HTC’s use of Google Play and the content store on its Android devices, according to patent expert, Florian Mueller.
It appears that HTC rather quietly has confirmed its upcoming HTC Sense 5.0 user interface for a number of current devices including the HTC One X, One X+, One S and the HTC Butterfly though the company only confirms the new software for the global variants and says that some features might be missing when the updates arrive.
HTC launched two Windows phone 8 devices last year namely the 8X and 8S and the company is certainly planning to stick with the OS, despite the fact that it pulled the plug on a device called Zenith, which was likely to be a WP8 flagship.
However, Unwired View now reports that the Taiwanese manufacturer is working on a smartphone called Tiara that runs on Windows Phone 8 GDR2, a second update to Microsoft’s mobile operating system after the recent “Portico” update, according to rumoured specifications.
HTC introduced its much famed One series devices at last year’s Mobile World Congress, which consisted of the HTC One X, One S and One V. More recently, these were joined by the One X+, the One SV and the One VX. But this year, the newly announced HTC One will be the only ‘One’, according to Omio.
The mobile news blog cashed in on the opportunity to speak with Phil Roberson, head of HTC UK and Ireland and directly cut to the chase by asking him if there were multiple One handsets expected this year.
