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.

Sony has obviously put quite a lot of effort in the design of the Xperia sola touchscreen. The smartphone may only be a mid-range offering, but it’s shaping up to be one of the most interesting devices we have seen recently.

It turns out that the floating touch technology that allows the Sony Xperia sola to detect your finger hovering over the screen isn’t the only trick it holds up its sleeve. It turns out that the Xperia sola screen is also geared to detect touches through non-conductive fabric, which suggests that it will work with gloves.

The proof came from the following hands-on video that the guys from AndroidNext.de created at the Droidcon event in Berlin.

Tegra 3-powered LG X3 impressive benchmark scores leak

After the Optimus 3D 2 the other day we now got some extra info on the other hot droid, which LG will unveil at the MWC. We stumbled upon the benchmark results of the LG X3 – the quad-core beast with an impressive 4.7″ HD screen we first saw in January.

According to the author of the leak, the specs we heard last time around were spot on. This means the LG X3 will be built around the Tegra 3 chipset, featuring four Cortex-A9 CPU cores, running at 1.4GHz. A 2000 mAh battery will make sure that there’s always enough power to keep the X3 going, while the impressive AH-IPS screen will fill in at the front.

The LG X3 is said to have 16GB of expandable thought the microSD card slot internal memory, an 8 MP main camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing snapper. As it to be expected, the LG X3 will run the latest version of Android, 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, out of the box.

With specs like that it’s no wonder the LG X3 puts the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to shame in the performance department. The quad-core LG monster achieves more than twice the score of the Android ICS flagship at Quadrant with the results distribution staying consistent over the different categories.

The LG X3 will certainly be a handset worth keeping an eye on and it might be a huge step towards improving the LG position in the smartphone game.

LG Optimus 3D 2 photo surfaces, some specs in tow

The LG Optimus 3D was the star on the LG booth on last year’s MWC and it appears its successor will be the key announcement this year. We just got the first photo of the LG Optimus 3D 2 and it’s even garnished with some specs.

The LG Optimus 3D 2 will, reportedly, be using a higher resolution IPS screen than its predecessor. Given that this will be the company’s next flagship, we are almost certain that it will feature the HD AH-IPS display we know from the LG Optimus LTE.

The Optimus 3D 2 is also said to be considerably slimmer than its predecessor at 9.8mm and at least 20 g lighter. Given that its chubby body was one of the main issues with the original Optimus 3D, this can only be good news for the LG Optimus 3D 2.

The MWC kicks off in exactly two weeks, so we should soon find out if those rumors are true soon enough.
