HTC revealed its plan to turn Sense feature Zoe into a full-on social network a couple months back. Today, the company announced that the photo and video-sharing app is exiting its open beta, and is available for compatible Android devices (4.3 and above). If you're in need of a refresher, Zoe let

Periscope. Asthma inhaler. PVC pipe. These are just a few items that came to mind the first time I saw HTC's first standalone camera, which the company is simply -- and oddly -- calling the RE. Even though nothing about this device is normal, it's catered to the interests of the average Joe. \"If y

Selfies are exploding in popularity, so naturally manufacturers are stepping up to offer phones that match that rapidly expanding trend. In reality, there are already several that specifically cater to those who can't resist a good picture of themselves, and HTC is hopping on the bandwagon with a

Just a couple of years ago, Mike Woodward left a position as AT&T's phone portfolio VP to join HTC, and now Bloomberg reports he's moving on again, to Amazon. At HTC, he was President of the North American division and, later, President of Global Emerging Devices, which would have put him in c

We told you last month that HTC had shelved plans for its upcoming smartwatch. And with good reason; as a spokesperson told Re/code, it doesn't seem that \"anyone has gotten it right.\" The wearable that HTC was working on was originally supposed to debut right around now, but it simply wasn't ready

A new image from @upleaks, along with an apparent trip through the FCC has provided solid evidence that Google is set to release the Nexus 9 tablet built by HTC. If real, the pic clearly shows Nexus and HTC branding on the back, which appears to be made of some kind of grippy, Nexus 5-like plastic

If you've wanted to shoot 13-megapixel selfies with your phone, you've usually had to get either a knock-off or a one-of-a-kind device like Oppo's N1. You might not have to look very hard if a handful of leaks are correct, however. Both HTCFamily.ru and @upleaks have posted pictures of what's re

Google's Nexus line has long stood as the company's ideal vision of its widely adopted, open-source Android operating system. The devices, be they smartphones, tablets or even one-off media streamers, are built in conjunction with select hardware partners and represent an ideal marriage of tech sp

Rumors of an HTC-made Nexus device have swirled for some time, but only recently have details of a next-generation tablet started to become apparent. Not long after NVIDIA inadvertently leaked that the Taiwanese company is linking up with Google to launch the Nexus 9, the Wall Street Journal has a

It's been a testy couple of weeks for HTC. It's had new phones, plus rumors of a canceled wearable, a new tablet and a fragile deal with Amazon. What's a company to do? If reports are true, the answer is \"release a camera.\" More specifically, a rugged GoPro-like device. Bloomberg's sources suggest

As you may have noticed, that rumor of HTC making Amazon smartphones never panned out; Amazon ultimately designed the Fire phone itself. But was it a bogus story to begin with? Not if you ask The Information. Its sources claim that HTC landed a deal to make a low-end Amazon phone, but that AT&

Remember those hints of HTC returning to tablets? Yeah, the cat's out of the bag. As part of its patent lawsuit against Qualcomm and Samsung, NVIDIA has revealed that it expects a Tegra K1-powered \"HTC Nexus 9\" sometime within the third calendar quarter of the year. That would theoretically put th

These days it seems like nearly every smartphone maker also has a smartwatch under its belt? Motorola? Sure. LG? It's got two. Samsung? We don't even need to go there. HTC has generally seemed content to avoid the fray, but according to a report from Pocket-Lint it wasn't because they wanted to. T

When it's not producing flagship phones like the One (M8) or the Butterfly 2, HTC is flooding the rest of the market with several Desire models. These devices vary anywhere from mid-range (like the Desire 816, released in February) to low-end (the Desire 210), and everywhere in between. This week,

Albums worth of photos and scattered receipts may serve as breadcrumbs when you're trying to revisit your travels, but they're far from an ideal solution. MapHook has an alternative, though, with its free Android and iOS app that lets you tag your stops on a map, add photos, video and notes about
