Though not striking enough, apparently, or at least not as openly eccentric as the new, white version of the device launching today. And a different color scheme i...

YotaPhone was inarguably one of the quirkiest smartphones released last year, with not one, but two displays.

Hey Sprint, you listening? Granted, GSM doesn't do Sprint a whole lot of good in the States, but swapping a CDMA radio into HTC's first WiMAX effort here would make for a downright mighty response to the Touch HD. The previously-seen T8920 has turned out to be the MAX 4G, an 800 x 480 monster with...
