HTC Exodus 1 features a 12MP+16MP dual camera setup on the back, as well as an 8MP+8MP dual camera setup on the front.HTC on Tuesday unveiled the Exodus 1, its first-ever blockchain phone and a device that's supposed to change the way we think about smart devices. And unsurprisingly, you can buy it or rather pre-order it only using Bitcoins or Ethereum. In USD, that comes out to around $950.However you'll only be able to get your hands on the device by spending hard-earned cryprtocurrency, with the device costing 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH through HTC's own site, and shipping sometime in December. There's also a 3,500mAh battery to keep things ticking along and all the connectivity measures you'd expect of a £700 smartphone.The device is unique in offering what HTC calls a "secure enclave" away from the Android operating system (the phone will run Android Oreo) directly into the hardware itself.Chen said the benefit of keeping this area of the phone separate from Android was that … [Read more...] about HTC Exodus 1 will cost you Bitcoin or Ethereum

The phone, which is manufactured by Taiwan-based HTC Corporation, will be available from T-Mobile starting Oct. 22 for $179, with a two year contract.Like the Apple iPhone, it features a touch screen (3.2 inch) to easily launch applications but there are also five dedicated buttons, including very handy menu and home buttons, plus a trackball. CNET Test Drives Android PhoneIf you want to make a phone call while holding it in portrait mode you can bring up an onscreen dial-pad, but if you want to enter text - perhaps to respond to an email or access a web page, you have to turn the phone on its side and slide out the physical QWERTY keyboard. I like having a physical keyboard - the lack of one is my major complaint about the iPhone. The keyboard is okay, but I prefer the extra travel you get when pressing keys on the Blackberry Curve.

On June 4th, Sprint will release what, for the time being at least; will be the coolest phone on the planet. I got a chance to preview the HTC EVO-4G, and based on my experience, Sprint and HTC have a winner. No, it won't kill the iPhone but it does prove that Apple is far from the only innovator in the smartphone marketThe phone runs Google's Android operating system but like some other HTC phones, it also has the HTC Sense user interface that adds a more user friendly front-end to the phone. Sense has a number of enhancements over the basic Android interface including a "friend stream" that aggregates your social networking experiences into a single stream enabling you, for example, to see your friends' Facebook and Twitter updates on one screen while simultaneously updating your own Twitter and Facebook status. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to test the phone's most heralded feature - its ability to run on Sprint's fast 4G network. That's because Sprint has, so far, only … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Is Sprint’s EVO 4G the Coolest Phone on the Planet?
It's finally here -- the Oculus Rift virtual reality system hit the market Monday after months of hype and anticipation. This is the first VR product of its kind to reach consumers. The company that created it, Oculus, was acquired by Facebook for $2 billion in 2014, and now flash forward two years later, its signature headset system is on the market with a $599 price tag. Oculus Rift charges out of the gate, getting an earlier release than competitors like the HTC Vive, which starts shipping April 5 and the Sony PlayStation VR, due in October. So, now that it's out, what do the critics think? So far, the device -- hailed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as the start of a virtual reality-heavy future -- is getting mixed reviews. CNET Senior Editor Jeff Bakalar views the Oculus as a promising product that could improve over time. "As of right now, Oculus can only detect head movement. It will get the 3D functionality later this year (with an add-on). For me, the most compelling thing … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Oculus Rift VR reviews are in: Should you buy?
