HTC has issued an invitation to its fans on Facebook, inviting them to “see what’s next” during a London event on September 1st. The company probably won’t unveil any new phones during a public event, but the IFA tradeshow in Berlin begins on the same day so we expect HTC will be making a number of announcements around the same time. We also have a few ideas of what could be in store. It’s possible that HTC will have its Prime and Ignite Windows Phone Mango devices on display. We also wouldn’t be surprised if there were more details on the Sensation’s successor, the HTC Ruby, which is supposed to pack a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, a qHD display and more. Maybe we’ll even see HTC’s latest tablet, the Puccini, which is expected to launch on AT&T later this year as the Jetstream. More →
We’re sure by now you’ve all seen the video overview of the Motorola RAZR3, so instead of running with that we thought we’d do our part by sharing some previously unseen photos of the now defunct handset. There’s really nothing for us to say about the flip phone that packs a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G and Symbian UIQ, but it’s always neat to see what might have been, right? Hit the jump for some more pics!
Thanks, Travis! More →
Motorola’s plans are thwarted once again by canning the highly anticipated RAZR 3, codenamed Ruby. After putting some effort into reviving and continuing the RAZR line with this new phone, it looks like they’ve changed their minds and are shifting focus elsewhere. Though the original RAZR was wildly successful, going from overpriced down to free in just a year and a half after its release, the RAZR 2 failed to see the same results. It’s hard to say whether the RAZR 3 would have seen a come back for Motorola, but anything that can be said now is pure speculation. Jumping on Android and focusing on devices that will carry the platform, Motorola is taking another direction by being part of the Open Handset Alliance. The electronics giant is now ditching the Symbian platform that was originally intended for the new RAZR shortly after restructuring their mobile division. Will Moto be doing anything right in the near future? If they intend on staying in business, we should hope so. We’ve always got a special place for you in our hearts, Motorola.
