UNVEILED: HTC officially announces the HTC One with Nexus User Experience
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:50 CET under 04 - Android News

Remember when Google announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 with "Nexus Experience" at the recent Google I/O and pretty soon after, first rumors made the round that we can also expect a HTC One with "Nexus Experience"? Well, shortly after that rumor made the round, HTC denied any plans by saying "HTC is not currently planning a Nexus Edition of the HTC One". However, today, HTC announced exactly that HTC One; a special edition running stock Android which will be exclusively available through the Google Play store in the United States starting on June 26th. This edition pairs the all-metal unibody design, low-light capabilities of the UltraPixel camera and dual front-facing stereo speakers of the new HTC One with the stock version of the latest Android software, Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

QUICKVIEW: Hands-on with the iBolt MHL Streamer XL Dock for Android Smartphones [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:43 CET under 08 - Reviews

Ever, since I've used MHL the first time back in 2011 (when I did a project in Angola), I was fascinated from the easiness and usefulness of this new standard, which connects compatible smartphones (at the moment, Android only) with flat screens via HDMI. As a matter of fact, this allows to mirror the smartphone screen in high-definition, up to 1080p, plus Dolby 7.1 audio output. The fastest, and the easiest way to connect a smartphone to a HDMI equipped flat screen is a simple MHL-HDMI adapter with connected HDMI cable. However, docking stations are always nicer, especially in living rooms and such a docking station comes from iBolt: the MHL Streamer XL Dock.
