Verizon Changelog for HTC One Android 4.3 Update Surfaces

VerizonHTCOne43

With the Android 4.3 update for the Verizon HTC One finally upon us, it was only a matter of time before we’d see a changelog surface somewhere. Surface it has, as Big Red updated their web site with a support PDF for the newly approved update.

The update has a finalized build of 2.10.605.1. As far as the update is concerned there isn’t much to it. Besides the improvements that Android 4.3 brought to the table, there isn’t much to it in terms of new or updated software. Verizon has added yet another bloatware app. One owners will be able to add their own tracks to Highlights videos.

Besides that, we have bug fixes that include a fix for charging with a Mophie Juicepack, an option for playing purchased ringtones and a fix to those who have faint ringing noises in their ear pieces.

With everything being all official we could very well see the update start rolling out today and a bigger roll out happening as the week progresses. While some of us may have been too tired of waiting (myself included) and went the ROM route, this should make stock Sense users happy.

Let us know if you’re seeing it come across your One! Enjoy!

Watch company Android will unveil Android smartwatch next month

android_watchYou probably know Android as the mobile operating system that this site is named after. However, there’s another small company, also named Android, that has been manufacturing watches for ages. With a name like that, it would be foolish for them not to go into the growing smartwatch market, which is exactly what they will be doing. Based on a promotional video, the Android made Android smartwatch, which will be unveiled next month, will make and take phone calls, play your music, and record a voice memo among other features.

In addition, the watch will have pedometer capabilities, and the option of either a digital or analog face. The watch will come in many colors, including orange, black, red, blue and white. Pricing is still to be determined.
