Sprint HTC One M8 And E8 Get Matching OTA Update Bringing International Wi-Fi Calling, GPS Enhancements, And More

October 22nd, 2014 by admin No comments »

HTCOneM8-ThumbThe HTC One E8 is a plastic remake of the all metal M8 that sports identical specs with the exception of the camera (13MP vs the latter’s 4 “UltraPixel”). With this being the case, it’s only fitting that the pair get an OTA update at the same time. Sprint is now pushing one out to the two devices that introduces basically the same features across both.

The most interesting item on the change log is perhaps the addition of international Wi-Fi calling.

Today, Google officially announced Gmail Blue Inbox, a service we posted about just last night. Previously codenamed Bigtop, Inbox by Gmail is a full reimagining of how an email product should work, and how users should interact with their email.

It is really rare for a product to come out that actually reimagines something rather than just claiming it does, but Inbox is really a fresh take on… the inbox.

The developers of the series that showed many gamers just how beautiful space could be and let them explore it on their mobile devices surprised a few folks when it said that the next entry would deviate from its action-oriented roots and transition into an strategy-focused MMO.
