On the processor aspect, the HTC One X runs on quad core, while the One S comes with 2 and lastly the One V runs only on a single core. In terms of OS, all 3 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The HTC One V is probably the only Ice Cream Sandwich device launched with a single core right now.
In terms of dimensions, the HTC One S is the thinnest at only 7.8mm, followed by the HTC One X at 8.9mm and lastly the One V at 9.24mm. For storage, the HTC One X and One S doesn’t come with a expandable microSD slot however it is available on the One V. It is also interesting to note that the HTC One X comes with NFC support.

UPDATE: HTC One X, One S and One V specification and features compared.
We’re pretty sure that many of you are looking forward to the launch of the HTC One series here in Malaysia. We’re pretty stoked about the three devices as well. HTC look like they’ve gotten their act together and will be bringing a lot of awesome for this year, and that’s always a good thing for all of us gadget junkies.
At the launch, HTC says the One series will begin shipping globally in April. In addition, the devices are expected to be available through more than 140 mobile operators and distributors globally. Are Malaysian telcos included in this list of 140 operators?
Why yes, tipster @TheGadgetGuy18 pointed us to the press release page for the HTC One series and found some interesting nuggets of information — DiGi and Maxis are listed in the 140 mobile operators that will be getting the newly announced HTC devices.
We’ve spoken to a few people in the know and you can definitely expect the One X, S and V to be available here by April. In terms of pricing, we don’t have any information on that yet but the top of the line One X with the quad-core Tegra 3 should not go beyond the RM2.3k mark.
Super duper thanks to @TheGadgetGuy18 for the tip.
We have awesome readers. True Story.

At MWC, ASUS has revealed its ASUS Padfone which has been teased and shown for the longest time. This time around, the Taiwanese maker has enhanced the overall package by offering a 3-in-1 solution: Smart Phone + Tablet + Keyboard dock.
The main focus is the smart phone which is powered by Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM and storage between 16GB-64GB built in. For display, it has a 4.3″ qHD Super AMOLED that supports a resolution of 960×540. The phone has a 8MP f/2.2 camera at the back and a front facing VGA camera for video chat. It weighs 129 grams and is 9.2mm thick. In terms of battery, it is rated at 1,520mAh.
Plugging it into the tablet’s “Fone” dock, it offers a familiar 1280×800 IPS screen and a front facing 1.3MP camera. With the phone docked, the tablet uses the phone’s 8MP camera for imaging. In total, both keyboard + phone weighs 724 grams which is rather heavy for a 10.1″ tablet.
There’s not much details about the keyboard dock but based on the photos, it does look like the keyboard dock used in the original ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. Even the front appearance of the tablet looks like the original Transformer as well.
Another nifty new feature is the stylus which can be picked up and used as a handset. We wonder which one would look more silly, talking to an oversized tablet or a pen? The ASUS PadFone runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and no pricing or availability details have been revealed yet.
So is this Smart Phone + Tablet + Keyboard dock solution practical? Having a Smart Phone docked within a tablet looks clean but it does look cumbersome if you just want to take out your phone and make a call the old fashion way. We’ll see how it goes once it is available here.
Head after the break for promo video and photos of the PadFone.
The Nokia 808 PureView has created a lot of buzz with its epic 41MP camera. A worthy successor of the Nokia N8, the Nokia 808 PureView is a mobile photography marvel that boasts a biggest sensor with the highest megapixel count ever for a smart phone.
Figures aside, let’s take a look at some sample photos that were released by Nokia. The result is simply impressive and the earlier suggested theory behind the teaser was right after all. Head after the break and be amazed! Be warned, the original photos are 10-12MB each.
Ladies and gents, BGR’s back with more info about the Samsung Galaxy S III coming from its “trusted source”. This time the blog claims that it has received some more information that help paint a more complete picture of what we all can expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone.
BGR says you can expect the Galaxy S III to run on Android 4.0 with TouchWiz and feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor as well as a 4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution display with 16:9 aspect ratio. There’s also a 2MP front camera and a 8MP rear camera. We say, expect the camera to feature with a backlit sensor as well and zero shutter lag like the one seen on the Galaxy Nexus.
BGR insists that the Galaxy S III will have a ceramic back panel and while we’re not going to pretend to be experts in the matter, we really can’t see how it would be practical to use something so inherently brittle and expensive to mass produce on a mobile phone. But like we said, we’re not materials or manufacturing experts, Samsung might have sussed out all the issues to be able to make a device that uses ceramics as a construction material. In any case, a phone made out of ceramics would be cool, in more ways than one – if you know what we’re talking about.
In terms of launch date, we’re pegging for an announcement something in March or April and market availability in the June-July window. Also an almost simultaneous global launch is very possible.
So what do you think? This Galaxy S III, worth waiting for?
