HTC still committed to Windows Phone, new device in the works

141

The good news, HTC is still committed to Windows Phone and plans on releasing a new handset later this year. The bad news, whatever is released won't likely be a large screened device or share design elements with HTC's latest Android offering, the One.

Tai Ito, HTC's Vice President for Global Product Planning, commented while in attendance at Mobile World Congress 2013,

"We are actually fully committed to our Windows Phone business. We do have good collaboration with Microsoft for a future release this year. I understand that Windows Phone 8 is not as good as the market expected, we think that it could take time and we will continue working with them."

Ito added that any new HTC Windows Phones will likely not have larger screens and the company is taking a family approach to separation.

Hands on with Glam Me lens from Nokia: Perfecting the self portrait

13

During yesterday’s press conference Nokia started to show off the advertising campaigns it will be running for the Lumia 720, and we caught a brief glimpse of their new app “Glam Me”. It’s a very simple lens which is designed to aid self-portraiture using your front facing camera.

You start by taking a picture of your smiling face having framed it live using the camera. Not forgetting to show some teeth as the app will make use of those choppers later. Using Nokia’s image processing APIs, some auto-correct magic is immediately applied to enhance skin tones and soften focus, and you’re left with a corrected image.
