Dealzmodo Hack: Cooked Software Revives HTC Phones

HTC has always known their biggest weakness: Windows Mobile. They've done their best to hide the aged interface in glossy costumes and bolster performance, but they can only do so much—the OS is slow, buggy and can drain battery life on certain hardware. Luckily, Windows Mobile responds well to per-device… » 11/06/08 2:00pm 11/06/08 2:00pm

HTC Herald is the HTC Hermes/TyTN's Successor

The latest HTC phone with a slide-out keyboard is the HTC Herald, the successor to the HTC Hermes. The Herald is thinner, at 18mm versus the Hermes' 22mm, but vomits a camera and some processor power to do so. Luckily for us, everything else is the same.

i-Mate Releases JASJAM and SP JAS, Re-badged Versions of The HTC TyTN…

i-Mate continues the practice of letting the CEO's two year old child name their phones by releasing the i-Mate JASJAM and the i-MATE SP JAS. The JASJAM is their re-badged version of the HTC TyTN, and the SP JAS is their HTC MTeoR. Honestly, we can't decide which one of these two sets of names we dislike more. Though,… » 8/29/06 5:15pm 8/29/06 5:15pm
