HTC?s foray into the phablet market kicked off with the HTC J Butterfly in Japan, where we also spotted the HTC DLX just a few days ago. Well, it seems that the the HTC 6435LVW has already made its way to the Global Certification Forum, not to mention appearing on Verizon’s Minimum Advertised Price listing as the “HTC DROID DNA.” Of course, one might say that the HTC DLX (pronounced as HTC Deluxe) was nothing more than a codename until now, so there is every possibility that it could be marketed as the HTC Droid DNA eventually. Personally, I think that HTC DLX is a whole lot cooler than Droid DNA, after all, we don?t think that this is going to be the building block of the Droid brand simply because it isn?t.
The listing also pointed to a minimum advertised price that has been set at $199, which is pretty much in line with what most folks would have expected, in addition to a start date of November 20th that would clearly make it in time for a Thanksgiving launch thereabouts.By Ubergizmo.

The upcoming smartphone from LG will carry the Nexus brand name with it, where it is more or less known to the masses that it will be called the Nexus 4. Well, there were leaks of the handset in the past, but what we have here today would be a press render of the Nexus 4, hailing from the folks over at @evleaks who have been pretty spot on with other leaks in the past of different handsets. The press render does seem to have replaced the ?with Google? on the phone?s rear end with the Nexus logo, which is a decent substitute in our eyes.
Of course, there are others who firmly believe that unless an official image is released, everything else from now till then should be taken with a grain of salt. Being a little bit more patient would more or less do the trick here, considering how Google?s event is happening in less than a week?s time where far more information will be revealed, including that of the LG Nexus 4. Hopefully this smartphone will not be as underwhelming as recent gadget releases.By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Nexus 4 benchmarked confirms Android 4.2, Nexus 4 could come in 16GB flavor after all,
EuroGamer claims that the new PSN-enabled custom firmware which was introduced recently for hacked consoles has been followed up by publication of the Sony PS3′s LV0 decryption keys. Back in the day, the underground PS3 scene did see custom firmware to be a regular occurrence, but Sony did do their part in making sure that such security breaches have been relegated to the past, making it virtually impossible to hack the PS3 after that. Not until now, that is.
EuroGamer’s Richard Leadbetter explained, “The release of the new custom firmware – and the LV0 decryption keys in particular – poses serious issues. While Sony will almost certainly change the PSN passphrase once again in the upcoming 4.30 update, the reveal of the LV0 key basically means that any system update released by Sony going forward can be decrypted with little or no effort whatsoever.”
Chinese hacking group BlueDiskCFW highlighted this particular issue, and they do have plans to make money by selling the custom firmware. Of course, it has been disputed that the BlueDisk team did not make this discovery, but just want the publicity and perhaps saw an opportunity to make quick cash off the masses.By Ubergizmo.

When it comes to mobile gaming, you can choose one of two routes – take a smartphone or tablet, or pick from a dedicated handheld console. Atari has decided to jump aboard the smartphone/tablet route this time around, delivering their collection of iOS and Android titles such as RollerCoaster Tycoon, Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands, Atari Casino, and Outlaw. Outlaw is a totally new take on an original Atari arcade hit, where it will arrive on iOS this coming November, not to mention iOS gamers will also see the first time release of RollerCoaster Tycoon and Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands. Do bear in mind that Android gamers will not be left out for the above mentioned titles, either.
Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands will cost $2.99 for the iPad this coming December, with Steam, Facebook and Android versions on their way as well. We do expect this turn-based strategy game to be quite the hit as you play one of four factions. Atari Casino would be free for iOS as it is released later this year, and folks who have this gambling addiction might just want to give the virtual one-arm bandit a go instead of losing real cash in the real world. Oh yeah, did we mention that Deer Hunter will be coming over to Facebook as well? [Press Release]By Ubergizmo.

The upcoming LG Nexus 4 should be one of the first of many Nexus-branded devices to be revealed later this year, and it has been known by its codename Mako, having popped up in the GLBenchmark scoreboard. Just how fast is the new Nexus 4 device? Fast enough to cement a top 4 finish, where it is breathing down the Pantech Vega IM-A850?s neck, while the Asus PadFone 2 and the Xiaomi MI-2 remain in front. The reason for the placing of these devices? They are all powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset that works alongside the Adreno 320 graphics processor.
It is interesting to note that the GLBenchmark website did mention Android 4.2 as the operating system of choice for the Nexus 4, and the only thing left for us to do is to wait for an official name for the Nexus 4. Considering how there aren?t too many rumors out there about the next Android version?s name, chances are it is going to remain at Jelly Bean.By Ubergizmo.

Sony continues their smartphone march with plans to hit the entry level market with a couple of new models – the Xperia E as well as the Xperia E Dual, and both of them have been spotted over at the Indonesian Postel site. The Sony Xperia E Dual (C160X codenamed NanHu DS), as its name suggests, will have a dual SIM carriage, so it makes perfect sense for the Sony Xperia E (C150X codenamed NanHu SS) to be in every bit the same as the Xperia E Dual, save for the fact that it can only carry one SIM card inside.
Expectations do not run high for these entry-level smartphones, with a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A processor with Adreno 200 graphics running the show, in addition to a 320 x 480 pixel display and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich in tow. We do wonder just which carriers Stateside will carry either (or both) when they are finally ready to be revealed to the world.By Ubergizmo.
