From Htcyou: After a lackluster start to the new year, HTC is hoping that a robust Q2 will propel the company to a resurgent finish to 2010. HTC had expected Q1 revenues to be lower than the previous quarter, but with the eagerly anticipated releases of the Desire, the Legend, and other unconfirmed Android smartphones in the spring and down the line, business should be bustling from here onwards.

From Htcyou: Recently featured in a sultry Super Blow commercial, Motorola’s Devour is a very high profile Android smartphone that Verizon will be selling within the next few months. The VP of software design at Motorola takes us through a lengthy tour of the phone’s abilities. More »

From Htcyou: The programming geniuses over at OpenEclair have come a long way since the first version of its open source Eclair 2.1 ROM was released on January 28th. Now in build 1.2.2, OpenEclair is generally regarded as the best, fastest (and certainly the most promising) Android 2.1 ROM for the HTC Magic and Dream (myTouch 3G and G1 respectively). Check out the videos below to see how well the ROM runs on a Dream (G1). More »

From Htcyou: One of the most highly anticipated smartphones yet to be confirmed is the HTC Supersonic, which for sometime, has been rumored to be a 4G phone. Since Sprint has just stated that it will have a 4G smartphone by this summer, it stands to reason that the Supersonic is the very device in the works. More »

From Htcyou: The Beam was first leaked as the “Halo i8520,” but Samsung officially calls it the “Beam,” the world’s first Android smartphone with a built-in DLP projector. More »

Most of the attention at Mobile World Congress centers around Android and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile Phone 7 announcement, but HTC is one of the few companies that is still Windows Mobile 6.5 loyalists. The HD Mini, which is a more affordable version of the HTC HD2, runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3. Presumably, the HD Mini will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 7. More »

From Htcyou: Formerly known as the “Bravo,” the Desire was publicly demonstrated by HTC, and it is a wonder. Technically almost identical to the Nexus One, the Desire, with its 3.7″ AMOLED (800 x480) display and 1GHz Snapdragon processor will be available in Europe around Q2. More »

From Htcyou: …and it is a beauty that is carved from a single piece of aluminum like Apple’s unibody MacBook Pro (my favorite computer). The Legend’s design is something to behold, but under the hood, it is magnificent too, including Android 2.1, HTC Sense UI, AMOLED, and so forth. More »

From Htcyou: Kind of lost in all of the hubbub of Mobile World Congress busyness - and criminally so since this is a promising looking phone - is Acer’s second big Android smartphone, the E400, which uses Android Eclair 2.1 and is a mere 12mm thin. More »

Even though Google and Apple has had a rocky relationship over the past few years, Google’s mobile engineering executive Vic Gundotra insists that “Apple is a very close and valuable partner.” Recently, there was gossip that Steve Jobs flatly proclaimed privately that he “hates” Google CEO Eric Schmidt, whose company supposedly refrained from allowing multi-touch on its Nexus One so as not to anger Apple. Last week, an OTA update enabled Google’s smartphone to perform multi-touch in Google Maps, Browser, and Gallery. More »
