HTC has moved into the number five slot on IDC’s list of the top handset makers, beating RIM and behind Apple, but the company has also had its share prices drop 19-percent since June 7th. They rebounded a bit after the company’s sales for June were 87.8-percent higher than the same time last year.

And interestingly that’s a drop from May’s figures which were 116-percent higher than the same month last year. Not bad, but analysts think they have more work to do.

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Well, what we have learned is that an HTC rep has confirmed that the next update for the Thunderbolt won’t just fix the reboot issues, but it will also update the phone to Gingerbread.

Rumor is that Google has been working on a new Nexus handset and now we may have a brief glimpse at it thanks to folks at TechHog who have a photograph that is supposed to be a prototype of the Nexus 3. The phone is apparently being manufactured by HTC.

It has a front facing camera, and is being tested on HSPA+ and Sprint CDMA networks. So it looks like Google will launch the phone on Sprint since the carrier has been working with Google on Google Voice and Google Wallet. Other than that, we know nothing little else. However Techhog was asked to remove the images and info, so that pretty much confirms things.
