Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC is trying to gain a foothold in the U.S. smartphone market. Most of the phones the company recently released have not been doing well in the market, but HTC hopes to change their luck with the upcoming release of a high-end smartphone specifically for the U.S. market, if reports turn out to be true.
According to a report in Tech Times, a reliable source of the leak about the new HTC phone is Evan Blass, also known on Twitter as @EvLeaks. The new phone is reportedly being released to the U.S. through AT&T, and is codenamed Hima Aero. The company will be reportedly releasing the phone in the fourth quarter of the year.
In early June, there was also news about HTC developing and eventually coming up with a new series of "hero" phones. This was announced by CEO Cher Wang during a meeting with investors, in an effort to somewhat remedy the poor sales performance of the company's latest flagship, the HTC One M9. During that meeting, Wang revealed that the new hero phone will be coming in October, carrying with it a new look and design as well as "innovative changes" in terms of specifications. It seems likely that the Hima Aero is this new line of phones which the company hopes to add to its existing lines. more >>
Lysa TerKeurst, bestselling author and Proverbs 31 Ministries president, wants her First 5 app to get Christians into the habit of reaching for the Word before giving the world their full attention — and it seems many women are eager to do just that.
"When social media and email are the first things we look at in the morning, our hearts get set on busyness and wrapped up in the shouts of the world. I want to equip women to truly put God first — to truly give Him the first moments of their day — through this app," TerKeurst said in a statement shared with The Christian Post.
The First 5 app triggered more than 100,000 downloads within the first two days of it being made available and "hit (No. 2) in the Lifestyle app category in the Apple store," according to a representative for TerKeurst's nonprofit women-focused Proverbs 31 Ministries and Crowd Hub, the California tech firm that helped bring the free devotional app to life. CP was informed that First 5, available since July 20, had been downloaded more than 200,000 times as of Monday afternoon. more >>
With just a day left before its official unveiling, new leaks pointing towards Motorola's upcoming Moto G (2015) continue to surface online. This time around, the photo is a screengrab from a carrier's website displaying what appears to be the third-gen Moto G's pricing.
A report from GSM Arena cited an article from Droid-Life.com sharing the leaked photo taken from U.S. Cellular. Placed under SKU number 186978, the upcoming handset is quoted with a price of $179.99. The publication clarified that the amount is still without a contract.
Given this detail and if Motorola sticks to what has been reported, then it could be an awesome deal for its would-be buyers. Adding to the advantage is the fact that the third Gen unit is rumoured to come with an LTE connectivity support, which the previous model didn't have and it was sold with the same price. more >>
