This is how it works : HTC would give you a $600 32GB One for nothing down, and then you’ll make no-interest monthly payments of $25 for the next two years. This is not the first time a manufacturer has offered direct finance but it’s still very rare specially for a high-end flagship device on which the company rely’s for it’s existence.
This offer is only available in the US, and this is for the GSM One only!

HTC was bought to the court of law by the Finnish Manufacturer, Nokia which said that HTC has infringed it’s “modular structure for a transmitter and a mobile station” patent.
Nokia had achieved a sales ban against the One smartphone line in the UK before, forcing HTC to change the radios and microphones inside the One as quoted by reliable sources.
The HD2 continuous to get enormous amount of community support which means that it can now run Android Kitkat 4.4. Folks at XDA Developers once again shows the world that the device is still evergreen. Being a very gently ageing phone means that it doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles.
Thing that dont work include the SDcard , WiFi, Data connection and the Camera.
Very rarely do we come across an attack that isn’t very easy and obvious to avoid. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what we’re looking at today, upon the announcement of a new DoS vulnerability affecting certain Nexus-family handsets.
A new vulnerability came to light in the form of an SMS-based attack today. Flash messages are meant to be displayed in case of emergencies without user interaction and they are handled very promptly.
If users on the Galaxy Nexus 4 and 5 are to receive more than 30 or so flash messages then these devices seem to run out of responsiveness. Google is aware of the situation, and says that it’s investigating things.
Gionee comes in with a Smartphone which scores a goal, atleast for it’s specifications on paper. This is also one of the first times when a Chinese manufacturer has gone all out in terms of specs to win the game in such an absurd fashion.
It is built on a Snapdragon Soc – The Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.5GHz and a Sensor Co-processor like the iPhone, over here it would manage screen gestures when the phone is off.
A massive 8 Megapixels front camera and a 16 Megapixels rear camera. The Elife E7 is expected to launch for around $750 off contract.
You basically get the same phone, including the 4.7-inch Full HD screen, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, as well as 32 gigabytes of internal storage, in addition to the four-megapixel “UltraPixel” camera.
Pricing & Availability would totally define if going for this option is worth it. As of now, the HTC One is a great smartphone that is ageing very gracefully.
Deals on Apple products are definitely the ones to look for while there are many other tablets, laptops and accessories up for sale.
Oppo, a chinese manufacturer of mobile phones has brought some exceptionally built Android Smartphones like the Find 5 and N1. A Forum post by an Indian was answered by a representative, Adam:
We’re in the process of setting up a local branch in India to provide our Ofans with support in OPPO stores and make their brand experience even better. Stay tuned for an official announcement coming soon!
If you’re unaware, Oppo N1 is the company’s long awaited latest offering – with a 1920 x 1080p display and a 3160 mAh Battery. The N1 also has a touch sensitive back panel and a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with a 1.7 Ghz Quad Core CPU.
The Oppo N1 is expected to launch in India at Rs. 35,900.

After a humongous failure by Nvidia to push the Tegra 4 to see the light of the day, the company is ready with it’s latest offering in terms of the new Tegra 4i which Nvidia believes shall be rocked by major smartphones next year.
However we need to slow down in terms of expectations just in case we are overlooking the fact that the Tegra 4i is a slightly scaled down version of the Tegra 4 with added LTE/HSPA+ Baseband support. NVIDIA is confident that the 4i should launch in Q1 2014, and actually ship by Q2 at the latest which is backed up by the fact that AT&T has already certified the 4i for its future smartphones.
In any case, let’s just hope the new Tegra 4i atleast stands as a competitor taking the current Qualcomm dominated markets in consideration.
