Those who were thinking of going for the HTC One V but were put off by the boring shade of brown can now heave a sigh of relief because the phone has been spotted in two additional colors.

According to the pictures from Blog of Mobile, there also exist a black and purple colored variants of the HTC One V. The black one even seems to have a brushed metal finish to it, unlike the smooth finish on the brown and the purple variants.

Whether these two colors will be available everywhere the One V is sold or if they will be limited to a specific market is not known. Hopefully, HTC will make these available everywhere, and add some more options in future too.

HTC has made up a special offer for their domestic market in Taiwan bundling their newest quad-core One X smartphone with Beats Solo headphones.

Unfortunately, HTC is mum on any probability of releasing the special bundle globally or in other markets besides the Taiwanese one. The package’s pre-order price is a shy below 25,000 TWD or $840. This works out as a great deal considering a standard HTC One X costs around $780 and Beats sell their Solo headphones for $180.

Pre-orders for the Deluxe Limited Edition start on March 20, so you still have some time to break the piggy bank and check your pockets for some change.

MWC gave us a lot to look forward to, with a new family of HTC devices alongside the first range of smartphones brandishing the Sony name and now these delights are making their way to carriers across the globe.

O2 UK recently updated their website’s ‘Coming Soon’ section to include the likes of HTC’s One X, S and V, the two new smaller Sony NXT series phones, the Xperia P and the Xperia U, the Samsung Galaxy S Advance and two members of Nokia’s Symbian running Asha phones, the 201 and 302.

All of these devices are currently slated for an April launch so consumers don’t have long to wait to get their hands on some of the hottest handsets in 2012, but for those of you who simply can’t hang on that long, Sony have already unleashed their latest flagship device, the Xperia S, offering a refined Android experience designed to act as the new face of Sony Mobile Communications.

The Android 4.0 ICS update marathon for the non-Nexus devices has just begun. HTC drew first blood and started seeding the latest edition of the Google OS to its Sensation XE former flagship. Also included in the package is an updated Sense UI, carrying the version number 3.6.

So far, we’ve received confirmation of the Android 4.0 update being seeded to Sensation XE units in Germany and the Nordic countries, but we expect the rest of Europe to follow soon. Global availability can’t be far away too, knowing the HTC usual practices.

You can check if the update is available for your region under Software Updates in the Settings menu. Keep in mind that the update requires a download of a file nearly 300MB in size, so you better use a Wi-Fi connection for it.

If yours isn’t among the lucky units to have the update already and you don’t feel like waiting, you can follow this link to the always useful XDA-developers forum to download the files and flash it yourselves.

One of the best bits about the HTC newly unveiled smartphone lineup that we saw at the MWC is undoubtedly the screens of the One S and the One X. The displays of both new flagship droids of the Taiwanese company represent a major step forward, compared to their predecessors and we imagine you are as curious as we are to learn more about the underlying technology.

Fortunately, the guys from BestBoyZ managed to get their hands on the two and put them under a microscope to examine what was going on beneath the surface. There were a couple of interesting findings to be noted.

It turns out the HTC One X HD SLCD2 uses virtually identical matrix to the one found on the LG Optimus 4X HD. That’s the same AH-IPS screen we loved so much on the LG Optimus LTE and it’s hardly a surprise it led to some great results on the One X. The curious omission of the IPS technology from the One X official specs sheet was explained with trademark reasons.

As for the HTC One S – we got confirmation that its qHD Super AMOLED uses a PenTile RGBG matrix, instead of a conventional RGB matrix. This will probably lead to the familiar dottiness in some images, but it seems HTC has designed its interface cleverly enough to make that less apparent.

We spent quite some time with the One S at the MWC in Barcelona and we weren’t bothered by the missing sub-pixels at all. Here’s hoping this won’t change when we get the smartphone for a full review.

HTC didn’t win the race for selling the most Windows Phone 7 devices, but the Taiwanese have won the race to China. The winner in this race happens to be the HTC Titan, which debuts in the Chinese market as HTC Triumph.

Priced at ¥4,399 ($700) without the burden of a contract, the 4.7-inch Titan takes one of the top spots in the high-end smartphone market in the People’s republic.

HTC has confirmed that the Triumph will ship with the latest Windows Phone 7.5 Tango. However, Facebook and Twitter applications will be replaced by the local Sina Weibo and Tencent Weixin. Naturally, SkyDrive will take care of the cloud storage uploads.

HTC Endeavor (HTC Edge) Specs Appear In Leaked ROM

By Killian Bell on February 13, 2012 in HTC

The HTC Edge first leaked back in November, and was rumored to be the Taiwanese company’s first Tegra 3 quad-core smartphone. Just a couple of days ago, we discovered that its name was changed to the HTC Endeavor internally, and now we have the device’s internal specifications, thanks to a leaked ROM.

As expected, the device will be a flagship handset packing an NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, according toPocketNow, with a 720p display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The ROM, which was posted to the XDA Developers forums, also reveals that the Endeavor will offer Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. But its most exciting features include the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the HTC Sense 4.0 user interface.
That’s right, not only will the Endeavor — which is believed to be its real retail name — be HTC’s first quad-core smartphone, but it’ll also be one of the first to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

Now, I know you’re itching to know when the device will arrive. Rumor has it that the Endeavor will show its face at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month. So you’ll be pleased to know that there isn’t long to wait.

I think the HTC Endeavor sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic Android device, but what do you think?
