Suggested January 2024 Htc Unveils Its New Flagship, The One

Earlier this morning, Taiwanese handset maker HTC at a high-profile media event in London introduced its latest flagship handset, the One. In terms of speeds and feeds, this Android LTE device seems a winner: it sports a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM, has front-facing speakers complete with a dedicated amplifier that play Beats Audio and boasts a 4.7-inch 1080p display coated with Gorilla Glass 2.

And borrowing from Windows Phone, there’s a new feature called Blink Feed, basically a glorified Flipboard-like aggregator that turns your home screen into an endless stream of social updates, email messages and news articles. More tidbits and a few press shots right after the break…

The One’s display files as the densest smartphone display on the market today. At 468 pixels per inch, it easily bests the iPhone 5’s 326ppi and the BlackBerry Z10’s 356ppi display.

In terms of content, the One comes preloaded with ESPN’s app that streams content to the user’s Blink Feed as news happens. All told, HTC signed up a cool 1,400 content partners, including the AOL properties (Huffington Post, Moviefone, Engadget, TechCrunch and more), the Associated Press and ESPN.

A media release bills Blink Feed as “a bold new experience that transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news and photos with immersive images so that people no longer need to go to separate applications to find out what’s happening.”

There’s also an all-new cloud music player which streams lyrics.

For the One, HTC engineers have developed a custom, much-improved eight-megapixel back camera with f/2.0 aperture lens. Proclaiming the megapixel race over, HTC said the camera is all about “UltraPixels”, which basically a fancy buzz word for a similar technology first seen on Nokia’s PureView handset.

HTC says these ultrapixels gather 300 percent more light than traditional sensors for an improved low-light performance, but with an important distinction: the tech limits the maximum photo size to four megapixels, regardless of the actual camera resolution.

Akin to Samsung’s Galaxy S III, a new Zoe feature captures five frames before and another fifteen images after hitting the shutter button, letting the user choose the best shot between a set of twenty photos. You can also record three-second video clips alongside the photos and create stop-motion animation from the stills.

Other features of the back camera include enhanced 360-degree panorama, time sequencing and object removal. The front-facing camera has also received love with such new features as ultra-wide angles and 1080p capture for some crisp video conferencing.

Moreover, HTC’s multi-axis optical image stabilization taps gyro and accelerometer sensors to ensure smooth video and is available on both cameras.

The Verge has a nice table comparing how the One stacks up against competition, including Apple’s iPhone 5. As for the design, the handset’s body is all aluminum using a design they call zero gap. Like the iPhone, the One’s aluminum body doubles as the antenna for radios (potentially opening door to some unpleasant signal attenuation).

Apple and HTC recently signed a ten-year licensing deal and though the terms of the settlement remained confidential, the deal obviously includes Apple-like design cues.

One of the more interesting perks of the One is the IR emitter at the top. With a little help from the Sense TV app, the IR emitter turns your One into a control remote for a TV set, with the app providing interactive programs guides from many of the biggest broadcasters.

The phone also packs in a 2300 mAh battery, NFC, GPS and GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE and even the speedy 802.11ac Wi-Fi networking.

The One will be available in black and silver varieties, each with either 32 or 64 gigabytes of onboard storage. It’s due to ship initially late-March via AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in the United States (notably absent: Verizon Wireless), in addition to O2, Vodafone, Three and EE in the United Kingdom and Rogers, Bell and Telus in Canada and Australia.

Here’s a hands-on video by The Verge.

All told, the One will be available through 185 mobile operators in over 80 regions. HTC said it will offer a $100 trade-in credit towards the One. The company is now accepting pre-orders through its web site.

What’s your first impression of this phone?

Do you view it as a device potentially replacing your iPhone 5?

Samsung Galaxy S Iii Vs Htc One Series: The Future War

Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One series: the future war

This Summer’s biggest decision for top-tier smartphone customers looking to switch up to the best of the best will be which of the two they’ll be choosing: a member of the HTC One family or the inevitable Samsung Galaxy S III. At the moment there’s a bit of a block in the way of deciding as the Galaxy S III has not yet been detailed, only having leaks and whispers of details released thus far. On the other hand, Samsung has released a massive amount of smartphones (and tablets) since the last hero in the Galaxy S II, and much is to be gleaned and used in a preview-sort of decision right now before the HTC One series is released in the USA as well.

First, expect the HTC One series (both the X and the S) to be released in the United States months ahead of the Galaxy S III. If we take the amount of time between when the Galaxy S II was announced and when it was released in the United States, we are indeed looking at several months between one and the other. If you’re the sort of person that buys a smartphone off-contract in its international form, you’ll probably be able to get the Galaxy S III within a few weeks from now – again this is not confirmed, but it does seem very likely given the announcement released today: “Next Galaxy” on May 3rd.

Both HTC and Samsung are bringing a new level of not only power, but full physical experiences to the smartphone world. HTC is bringing fire-branded metals to their line, a fabulous feel on the hand and intense imperviousness to damage, while Samsung is rumored to be delivering the GSIII with a ceramic casing. We’re not yet sure how Samsung’s materials are going to be affecting the fragility of the device.

The HTC One series has the new HTC ImageSense processor integrated to work specifically with the camera. Because of this, each of the HTC One line contains an amazing ability to take high-quality photos and video. When the Samsung Galaxy S II was released, Samsung was applauded for having a fantastic shooter whose only real rival was the iPhone – and now the iPhone 4S. We’re expecting Samsung to bring some new camera technology to this new device in order to compete with both the HTC One series and the iPhone 4S – as well as the inevitable iPhone 5.

Of course then there it is – the iPhone 5 factor. The possibility exists that there will be a next-generation iPhone before the end of the year. If you’re waiting for the next iPhone, I’d suggest you keep in mind everything we’re discussing here, then add the fact that the next iPhone will be running iOS and will be supported by Apple, then add some magic, mix it all up, and decide if it’s worth waiting for.

On that note, both the HTC One series and the Galaxy S III will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The HTC One series has HTC’s Sense 4.0 running on top, and Samsung will have a new version of TouchWiz running on top. First have a look at the HTC One S with Sense UI 4.0 here:

That’s part 1 of 2, the other part available in the full Hands-on with Sense 4.0 post. As for TouchWiz, the most recent smartphone-based TouchWiz version on Android 4.0 ICS we’ve seen is an unofficial build of TouchWiz working with the Samsung Galaxy Note. Check out Android Community’s hands-on post as well as the video here:

Our reviews of both the HTC One X and the HTC One S should give you a good idea of what you’ll be working with if you pick up the international versions of these devices. If you’re going for the USA releases, you should know that the processor from the S (the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor) is present in the X for AT&T, this device otherwise carrying the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. We have yet to see final comparisons between this device’s two setups, but you can check out our HTC One S vs HTC One X benchmarks to see some numbers between the siblings.

For more information on the Galaxy S III, view our Samsung Galaxy S III portal and know all the rumors for yourself – and we’ll be at the GSIII event in London soon – so stay tuned!

Questrom School Of Business Appoints One Of Its Own As New Dean

Questrom School of Business Appoints One of Its Own as New Dean Susan Fournier will be the first female to lead the school

Susan Fournier, a marketing and management professor at BU for 13 years and a leading international expert on brand marketing, will become the next dean of the Questrom School of Business, effective August 27.

The first female dean to lead the school, Fournier is credited with pioneering the brand relationships subfield in marketing, which explores the emotional relationships consumers form with brands and products. She is the author of two acclaimed books and numerous book chapters as well as several best-selling Harvard case studies on branding. The sought-after expert’s soon-to-be published research paper examines the pitfalls of celebrity-based branding based on her 14-year analysis of Martha Stewart’s career. She has also received several best paper awards, including the JRC Long-Term Contribution Award from the Association for Consumer Research and Emerald Publishing’s Citation of Excellence Award for the top 50 articles in management.

Prior to joining the Questrom faculty in 2005, Fournier worked in market research or as a consultant in private industry for companies such as Polaroid Corp., Altria, IBM, Coca-Cola, and Chick-fil-A, and served on the faculty of Harvard Business School and the Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business.

Jean Morrison, BU provost and chief academic officer, says Fournier is a leading scholar, teacher, and innovator who has earned high regard at Questrom for her pioneering work in the classroom and the corporate world.

“She brings a remarkable tool kit of experience and knowledge to this role—and a genuine connection to the students, faculty, and staff, who are the heart of Questrom,” Morrison says. “I am excited to welcome her to this role and to follow her success as she guides Questrom to continued excellence as a leading global business school.”

Robert A. Brown, University president, says the Questrom Dean Search Advisory Committee, which undertook a national search for the successor to Kenneth Freeman, Allen Questrom Professor and Dean in Management since 2010, gave Fournier its unanimous and enthusiastic support.

“Susan assumes the role of the dean of the Questrom School of Business during an exciting time for the school, for business education, and the University,” Brown says. “I look forward to working with her to continue the journey of increasing the quality and impact of the school’s education and research programs.”

Fournier says she sees a direct correlation between her academic research and her new role at the helm of Questrom. Branding, she notes, is about forging relationships, and so is running a business school.

“I have deep knowledge in the psychology and sociology of relationships, how they develop, how they fall apart, what kind of flavors they come in,” she says. “The whole point of what I do is looking at why people connect with things, what role brands, products, organizations have for people in their lives. It’s not about selling a product, it’s about understanding people’s lives…and trying to help them.”

As dean, she says, she will work to increase interdisciplinary programming, ensure Questrom’s financial security, and offer coursework aligned with both students’ and employers’ needs.

“I will be the champion of the Questrom School of Business brand,” Fournier says. “I will be looking out to make sure all the decisions we make are on brand and are going to build our equity as a preeminent academic institution, from every person we hire to every course we develop to every institute we endow.”

She succeeds Freeman, who announced last fall that he would step down as dean. During his tenure, Freeman oversaw a period of remarkable growth during which undergraduate student enrollment increased by nearly 30 percent. He presided over the $50 million gift from BU trustee Allen Questrom (Questrom’64, Hon.’15) and Kelli Questrom (Hon.’15) and their foundation that led to the renaming of the school in 2023. He also helped transform the undergraduate and MBA programs to emphasize ethics and global citizenship and better cater to changing student and employer needs.

Fournier earned a PhD in marketing at the University of Florida, a master’s degree in marketing from Pennsylvania State University, and an undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

She says Questrom has already begun the work of breaking down barriers between traditional academic disciplines that operate in outmoded silos in favor of interdisciplinary programming. Eliminating those boundaries in hiring, programming, and other interfaces, she says, is the future of business education and perhaps education in general.

It’s a real-world approach, she says.

“I’m trying to further establish our reputation as a preeminent research and teaching institution and develop our reputation for research that matters and faculty who care,” says Fournier. “We need strong partnerships with industry and organizations both to provide data for research that matters but also to be in partnership with us in the development of courses and projects that students would work on for hands-on learning.

“I have a stakeholder perspective from having worked and lived on the other side.”

Volkswagen Unveils New ‘Ibeetle’ With Integrated Iphone Dock

This is kind of interesting. Following a press release this weekend, Volkswagen has just unveiled the ‘iBeetle’ at the Shanghai Motor Show in the city’s Pudong district. The vehicle is expected to launch early next year, and will come in both coupe and convertible models.

Why is it called the iBeetle? The car will feature a custom built-in iPhone docking station, as well as a companion app, that will allow you to sync your iPhone with its entertainment system for making phone calls, streaming music and more. More details after the fold…

Volkswagen claims that this is the first time a vehicle has featured a “genuine integrative interface for the iPhone that was coordinated with Apple.” And in addition to the app and dock, the iBeetle will also feature Chrome trim, and custom ‘Disc’ wheels and badging.

Here’s some of the car’s capabilities noted in Volkswagen’s press release (via AutoBlog):

The newly designed docking station is located centrally on the dashboard of the Beetle: the iPhone simply snaps in to integrate it with the car. Essentially, all iPhone functions can be used in the Beetle; the iPhone can be used to navigate, make calls hands-free, listen to music, and much more.

When this special app is launched on an iPhone, it can either connect the phone to the Beetle via the docking station or wirelessly. Each option allows for different app functions to be accessed:

Spotify: lets users stream media such as new songs, customized playlists or online radio stations into the Beetle. Those who wish can post their favorite music directly to friends. In addition, users in the Beetle can switch between “Spotify” and “iTunes” at any time.

Expert: offers five functions which make the iPhone an extended on-board instrument of the Beetle, such as a G-Meter (for measuring lateral acceleration), oil and coolant temperature gauges for the engine, a chronometer, and a compass.

Postcard: Sends the current location of the Beetle to friends as a digital postcard with a map motif.

Photo: Sends photos taken inside the car to numerous social networks. Simply activate it, and the app does the rest.

Milestones: Available when the smartphone is undocked. Rewards its users with virtual “milestone stickers” for the Beetle when certain tasks have been completed.

We’ve heard several reports recently that Apple is looking to wade further into the auto space. Last month, word got out that the iPad-maker was going to broaden its partnership with Ferrari. And shortly after that, it was seen hiring engineers for its vehicle integration team.

Apple is also making a big push in the auto space right now with its new Siri Eyes Free project. The feature, which was introduced in iOS 6 last year, allows users to initiate Siri through their car’s factory entertainment system. It made its debut earlier this year in the Chevy Spark.

The company’s growing infatuation with in-car integration should surprise no one. Steve Jobs often dreamed of building an ‘iCar,’ and even went so far as to discuss the idea with Volkswagen years ago. And Apple has factory iPhone and iPod adapters in most makes and models.

But what is surprising is that VW thought an iPhone dock (oh yeah, and an iPhone application) was worth building an entire car around. It seems like something that would have just been available as an option, or listed as a bullet point in a ‘technology’ trim package.

At any rate, the iBeetle will be available in iPhone-like ‘Candy White’ and ‘Black Monochrome,’ among other special colors. And should be ready for purchase in early 2014.

So, who’s planning on picking up an iBeetle?

Oppo Unveils 125W Flash Charge And A New Range Of Chargers

Read more: How fast charging really works: Everything you need to know

A closer look at 125W Flash Charge

Let’s start with the really big deal here: 125W wired charging. That’s crazy fast, virtually doubling OPPO’s already incredibly fast 65W SuperVOOC standard. OPPO’s 125W standard claims to power up a 4,000mAh battery to full in 20 minutes and will hit 41% capacity in just five minutes. This is all achieved while keeping the phone’s battery under 40°C, which will help offset some battery degradation.

Higher power charging puts a lot of strain on the battery, leading OPPO to make key changes to its smartphone batteries. The dual-cell structure remains but the battery C-rating has doubled from 3C to 6C. The C-rating is essentially how much continuous current a battery can withstand and a general indicator of quality and resistance to overheating at high charge rates. OPPO’s 125W solution pushes a whopping 12.5A of current into these batteries at its peak, requiring higher quality batteries. Faster charging is also supplied by three charging pumps, boasting up to 98% efficiency, and a six-way multiple-tab battery setup.

Oppo’s 125W charger supports USB Power Delivery and Quick Charge, too.

If like me, you’re not a fan of proprietary charging standards. OPPO appears to have heard us. The 125W charger is compatible with USB Power Delivery (PD) at 65W, USB Power Delivery Programmable Power Supply (PPS) at 125W, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge at 36W. This makes OPPO’s new charger a one-size-fits-all solution for virtually all your gadgets. Pretty awesome.

There is a drawback to this fast charging tech though. OPPO makes efforts to keep temperatures reasonable, but operating as such a high C-rating is bound to cause batteries to degrade faster than slower charging methods. The company states that its batteries are rated to retain 80% of their capacity after 800 charge cycles. That could produce a noticeable hit to screen-on time within two years of buying such a smartphone.

65W AirVOOC for wireless power

Wireless power is notoriously slow compared to wired charging, but that’s gradually changing. We’ve seen 30W wireless charging from OnePlus this year, but OPPO’s 65W AirVOOC is faster than pretty much every wired smartphone solution on the market right now. For a 4,000mAh battery, OPPO promises just 30 minutes to full, down from 56 minutes with its previous 40W technology.

To bring this feat to market, the 65W AirVOOC charger relies on dual charging coils with an impressive 88% efficiency. So you’ll need a device with the same arrangement on the inside to actually use these speeds. OPPO is working on a method to deliver 65W over a single charging coil, too.

The wireless charging stand keeps your device under 40°C thanks to a bottom-mounted fan blowing air across your handset. The dock and coils are kept cool with the addition of semiconductor cooling materials that are apparently popular in the esports industry. If all that wasn’t enough, OPPO’s stand also works with devices sporting the Qi standard, albeit at much slower 10W and 5W speeds.

More about batteries: Lithium-ion vs lithium-polymer: What’s the difference?

Two mini GaN chargers too

Gallium nitride (GaN) is powering smaller, more portable, high-power chargers and OPPO has leveraged the material for its high-frequency switching power supply inside its 50W and 110W mini-chargers. The 50W model is just 10.5mm thick and weighs a tiny 60 grams. OPPO says the 100W model is comparable in size to a typical 18W charger. Two good options for travelers looking to ditch bulky wall plugs.

The 50W and 110W mini-chargers also support USB PD and USB PPS standards. The former maxes out at 27W PD, 50W PPS, and 18W QC. The 110W model supports 110W PPS, 65W PD, and 36W QC. They should be able to serve as the only charger you’ll need for the majority of your gadgets, including higher-power laptops.

As impressive as OPPO’s latest charging lineup appears, we’re still missing a few pieces of the puzzle: Pricing and availability for one, and how long we’ll have to wait before we see our first smartphone that charges up at 125W. But we do know that OPPO plans to ship the 125W charger with a future device as well as selling it as a standalone accessory. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for when OPPO’s super-fast charging technology hits the market, presumably later in the year.
