    I Am Legend: How the HTC Legend stacks up to a Hero

    The HTC Hero, available in the US from Sprint, is less than a year old but that doesn't mean HTC can't up the ante. The Legend, a 3G GSM phone not currently available, has a slightly faster processor and a few interesting - and telling - details that are worth a second look. First, the processor has jumped from 528 MHz to 600, a bump that puts it on par with the Palm Pre in terms of speed. The… Read More

    HTC Sense UI for Android may be getting sweet, sweet multitouch

    Who could have guessed that simple gestures like pinch-to-zoom would make or break a phone experience for some people? With Android 2.1 slowly rolling out to most Android handsets out there, HTC decided to step up its game and bring that multitouch action into its own UI. But before you start getting uppity about when it’s coming, do not that this video is coming from Japan on a unit that… Read More

    HTC Hero soars through the FCC, again – this time for Sprint

    Last time we saw the HTC Hero grace the labs of the FCC with its presence, it was swimming chin deep in GSM 850/1900Mhz territory – otherwise known as AT&T’s turf.

    Video: New HTC Hero ROM gets demoed, appears lag free

    We love the HTC Hero to pieces around these parts. Really. Even after spending a few days tearing it apart for our review, the only bad thing we could find to say about it was that the sporadic lag on the homescreen harshed our buzz. Well, now HTC has gone and fixed that. Paul of MoDaCo managed to get his hands on a pre-release copy of an upcoming Hero ROM update, and sure enough: the lag is… Read More

    Teen Stabs PS3 Burglar With Samurai Sword

    This is, without a doubt, the coolest PS3 story I’ve heard about in a long time. Two burglars broke into a Florida home and started to ransack the place. What they didn’t know is that Damian Fernandez and his 15-year-old sister Deanne were both home at the time. Deanne hid in her closet when she heard the robbers break in through her front door and watched the whole ordeal unfold in… Read More
