What If HTC's One Was Actually Apple's iPhone 6

HTC's One is undisputedly the best looking Android handset of the year, arguably borrowing a lot from Apple's unique design language and iconic build quality etiquette. Any iPhone user wouldn't be ashamed in admitting he or she would love to own one if only it were running iOS instead of Android. And that got us thinking, what would it be like if the HTC One was actually Apple's next generation iPhone? It would have been a marvelous 4.7-inch device running a totally revamped iOS 7, a truly reimagined iPhone built from the ground up with refreshing new features, and less of an iPhone circa 2007 influence to restrict innovation from moving forward.

In other words, we iOS users hope that Apple would take note of HTC's brilliant design and that includes simple things like a front-facing speaker, because there's an awful lot of tempting competition quickly rising which will turn many bored consumers over to the Green Side, or at least for a little while.

Now that HTC stepped up its game, we bet Apple is feeling the pressure from its customers and rivals like Samsung and HTC. The expectations for the iPhone 6 are extremely high. But until then, there is no doubt that we will see an iPhone 5S before any sort of breakthrough iPhone steps into fruition.

HTC One To Go On Sale On AT&T April 4

 

Get ready, if you want to secure your very own HTC One the day it comes out on April 19, you should know that you'll be able to pre-order yours with AT&T starting tomorrow at 1pm CT sharp. Both silver and black 32GB and 64GB models will be available to order for $200 and $300, with a new 2-year contract of course. But an off-contract One can be purchased at full retail price as well. Expect it to run Android Jelly Bean 4.1 filled with AT&T's worthless bloatware.

Update: AT&T's HTC One pre-order page is now live! Contrary to the expected ship date, AT&T will begin shipping as soon as April 16. Unfortunately only the silver variant is currently available.

HTC's New M7 Flagship Android Smartphone, An iPhone 5 In Disguise

 

HTC's rumored flagship Android smartphone to replace the One X, dubbed the M7, looks awfully similar to the iPhone 5 only that the similarities are flipped around. The leaked image is sourced from Evleaks, a known and reliable source that we've seen leak numerous products in the past ahead of their official debut which have all turned out to be 100% accurate. So it's safe to say that we're looking at HTC's new 4.7-inch M7 flagship Android device which is expected to make its world debut next month at the Mobile World Congress exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.

We've always had great admiration towards HTC's brilliantly designed handsets, more notably the company's recent Windows Phone 8X and 8S outings. The M7 is quite the looker nonetheless. As for some specs, it'll have a 4.7-inch full HD display at a staggering 468ppi with a blazing fast 1.7Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera with a f/2.0 aperture - all housed inside a "premium" build, and a suggested unsubsidized price tag of $600 for a 32GB flavor.

Beats Wireless, First Beats By Dr. Dre Wireless Headphones

Looks like Monster finally decided to out some wireless headphones after all. The FCC just approved what will be the newest addition to the Beats By Dr. Dre lineup called the Beats Wireless. The Beats Wireless headphones look like they are a mix of the Studio and the Solo HD mixed into one. They'll be Bluetooth enabled and have features such as headset capabilities with side controls to let you answer calls and control your music playback. Gone are the replaceable batteries that were used to power up the active noise-cancellation, the Beats Wireless will have a built-in rechargeable battery. Will we see these being bundled up with some HTC handsets in the future? After all, HTC didn't purchase the Beats By Dr. Dre brand for no reason. We're expecting to see these being released very soon for a heft price tag as usual.

HTC Partners Up With Beats By Dr. Dre, Sounds Good

Big news today as HTC announced its partnership and 51% stake acquisition of Beats Electronics, the company responsible for that sleek Beats By Dr. Dre line of most wanted headphones, and more recently speakers docks worldwide. Full details are yet to be announced as to what exactly this partnership will bring to the table, and most importantly to the consumers. It's very safe to say that we're going to see HTC incorporating Beats By Dr. Dre speakers in their well made handsets in the very near future just like HP has done with their Beats branded laptops.

HTC could have a big advantage over competitors if it will use the Beats audio in their handsets or even offer bundles that include a Beats branded headset along with a handset. Expect to see a whole lot of HTC smartphones in music videos.

CalypsoCase Fashions New Leather & Titanium iPhone 4 Cases

It's been a while since we've stumbled upon some really awesome cases for the iPhone 4. I'm glad CalypsoCase has created new unique looking sleeve cases that are carefully crafted using multiple materials such as fine Italian leather and a strong U shaped titanium inner closure band for ultimate protection, and optional silver, black silver, gold or platinum metals. Each CalypsoCase sleeve case is lined with a specially designed fabric that prevents your phone from accidentally sliding out. CalypsoCase is currently seeking backing pledges to get things started. $70 will get you a special backer's only edition of a CalypsoCase which will later retail for $129.

CalypsoCase took a refreshing approach in starting up their new brand by creating their unique cases for various phones like the iPhone 4 - 3G/S, BlackBerry (Torch, Curve, Bold, Tour), HTC (Sensation, Incredible S, Desire HD, Desire S), Samsung (Nexus S, Galaxy S, Omnia II).
