HTC One M8 Smartphone Reveal – What’s in a Name?

HTC One M8
For over ten years I have been a freelance journalist and in this time I have monitored gaming and technology events with great interest. More recently though I have been employed as a copywriter at Mobile Fun, who specialise in smartphone and tablet cases, accessories and all manner of related products. I incorrectly believed my involvement in monitoring events would have diminished slightly due to full-time work commitments, yet yesterday I found myself with the usual selection of monitors displaying the latest relevant tweets, searching for live stream videos that actually worked and checking the usual live blogs.

The HTC One M8 was the latest of these escapades where I followed the latest rumour and gossip with great intrigue, mostly due to the fact it was possibly one of the worst kept secrets since the iPhone 4 was found laying unattended in a bar.

Windows Phone 7 – A Real Contender to Battle iOS and Android

When we think of smart-phones our instinct is to immediately consider Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android platform. These are spectacularly popular operating systems that have transformed the way in which we use our mobile phones and are evolving quickly as the competition attempts to out do their opponents.

Microsoft may have been a little late joining this battle, however don’t let that fool you into thinking they are out of the game. Windows Phone 7 designed specifically for smart-phones is a platform that oozes appeal and simplicity and although lacking a few of the features you may expect, they have finally left the starting blocks with something to be incredibly proud of.
