We know lots of you are waiting for your Gingerbread updates (at least, those of you who haven't turned to custom ROMs yet), so we've compiled a list of which phones we think are getting Gingerbread and and when we can expect updates.
Did you know that Flickr keeps track of which camera phones upload photos? Well they do, and based on the numbers, EVO 4G and Droid Incredible users are the biggest shutter bugs, with the two phones combining for 1.34 million photo uploads.
We get it: a lot of you don't want to spend 200 bucks on a smartphone. Well, we wouldn't want you to walk out with just any smartphone, so with that in mind, here's a look at the best cheap HTC phones available on US carriers.
Did you dream of a day when you could frolic through a world where 2.3 exists on your HTC Hero? Well that day has arrived. Those tireless hackers at XDA Developers have spliced gingerbread onto several more HTC Phones, including both Hero variants, the Droid Eris, the Desire and the Droid Incredible.
Those crazy cats at Amazon are back at it with some especially sweet deals on HTC phones. While some of the phones that are available are head-scratchers (The HTC Touch is still around? The myTouch 1.2 is $89.99?), some of today's top-tier phones can be had for cheap, like the 1 cent HTC Incredible or the $49.99 HD7.
While HTC has done miracles for Android and Windows Mobile, the idea of an HTC phone running HP's (nee Palm's) WebOS has been the stuff of nerd dreams over the years. In fact, that's partly why everyone was up in arms praying that HTC would buy Palm when it was up for sale earlier in the year.
About a month ago it was announced that all CDMA models of the HTC hero would be patched to Android 2.1, and there was much rejoicing. Granted that a month ago was a simpler time when concepts of what Froyo would be like were a pie-in-the-sky dream and Éclair was the golden standard for Android devices universally. A month later news that the second half of the Hero handsets receiving 2.1 seems a little eclipsed and dated, but regardless Hero owners should feel satisfied that their devices aren’t totally being forgotten.
