  • HTC One S for T-Mobile review

    Image

    A couple weeks ago we got to have our Ice Cream Sandwich and eat it too, thanks to a gorgeous couple phones from HTC — the One X and the One S. Both run Sense 4 — a thinner, lighter version of the company’s polarizing UI — and together with the entry-level One V, represent HTC’s attempt to make a comeback after a lackluster year of me-too products. The first to make its way to the US is the One S which lands on T-Mobile April 25 for $199 on contract (with a $50 rebate). We just spent a weekend with Magenta’s new flagship handset. So how does it compare to the global One S? Find out after the break.

  • Qbo goes legit, now up for pre-order on maker’s site

    Image

    Graduation day is always tough on parents. So, you’ll have to forgive the growing pains experienced by TheCorpora, whose six years in development labor of cybernetic love, Qbo, is now ready for mass consumption. To make this ever-evolving, endearing bot on wheels easily accessible, the team’s divvied up its commercial wares into two distinct offerings: Basic and Complete. For the soldering prone among you, that former kit comes with a chassis, plastic coverings and an array of the cutesy android’s mechanic guts, all at your disposal for assembly. Devs less interested in getting their hands dirty and more concerned with coding can opt-in for the fuller set in either Pro or Lite versions, replete with a fully constructed unit and differing only in the variety of motherboard and CPU configuration used. The outfit’s accepting pre-orders on its site now, with the base model running about 500 Euros (about $656) and the higher end packages emptying wallets at 1,700 Euros (about $2,230) and 2,300 Euros (about $3,017) apiece. Those are certainly hefty investments for the at-home hobbyist, but can you really put a price on synthetic love? We didn’t think so.

  • Roku 2 boxes updated for Francophones and English speakers alike

    Image

    The latest update for Roku 2 and LT boxes is rolling out to all now, bringing the boxes to v4.6 and reportedly improving system navigation performance “by up to 50 percent”. As noticed by Zatz Not Funny when it first started leaking out, this version includes the French language support required by Roku’s Canadian launch (that’s the channel selection for Canada pictured above) this week, while the official blog notes several other fixes and tweaks that should make launching channels like Netflix and BBC iPlayer a more reliable experience. As usual, it should be pushed to every box over the next couple of days, but you can speed up the process by manually checking for an update. Have an older Roku player? Don’t worry, Director of Product Management Tom Markworth closes telling owners to “stay tuned” for future updates coming their way as well.
