HTC EVO Otterbox Commuter Series Case

I pride myself on how I take care of my electronics. These things aren't made of Nerf material after all, and I want to make sure that they last. That's why I try and make sure I always carry my phone around in a good case.  Thankfully, this is exactly the case I was looking for. I'm not a big fan of the holster-style pouches nor am I a fan of the neoprene cases which seem to collect every last bit of lint from your pockets and slip off the phone every chance they get. Other cases seem so bulky, you ...

While it may not be the most functional application out there, it will definitely keep your attention for awhile. Jenn K. Lee of the blog "Good and Evo" stumbled upon a free application which brings the floating 3D picture gallery application to Froyo. It's a simple matter of downloading a small .zip file to your phone (or emailing it to yourself) and placing it on your SDcard where you double-click to install. Once installed you launch from your application directory. The gallery app lets you share the photos depending upon which applications you have stored on your device; for example it ...

Rumor: What Is The HTC Glacier?

Posted by Stormy Beach on August 4, 2010

The HTC Glacier isn't entirely new. It was running around in the rumor mills back in June of this year. Since then, nothing has surfaced about this phone until now.  Recently the device name appeared on the GLBenchmark 1.1 online database. The numbers look great on paper. The fastest HTC device available right now is the EVO 4G running at 516 frames. The HTC Glacier is pushing 1432 frames. That's nearly 3 times as fast as the EVO 4G and just slightly outdoes the Samsung Vibrant. I can make at least one conclusion from this and it is just my own ...
