HTC's One E9+ is its latest phablet with a stunning screen — Just like that, HTC has quietly -- well, maybe unintentionally -- unveiled its latest phablet on its China website. With some minor differences, the One E9+ is pretty much what we saw on the certification database earlier this month.

「九龍皇帝」筆跡被納入 Google 虛擬博物館典藏 — 多年前在香港隨處可見的「九龍皇帝」曾灶財先生之筆跡,有人會堅持是藝術作品,不過也有人會覺得只是一個瘋子的惡作劇。不論如何,對大部份香港人來說,它已成為香港文化的一個重要部分。只可惜,政府當局缺乏人情味,很快就把這些具標誌性的字體逐一抹掉,剩下來的要靠本地藝術家們多番要求後才成功保留下來。而消失已久的筆跡就只

HTC's lead designer leaves after less than a year — For a tech company that places so much emphasis on design, we can't help but think something's up when one of the key designers leaves. Today, we bring you the sad news that HTC's VP of Industrial Design, Jonah Becker, has announced his departure on Twitter.

HTC One M9 to go on sale for $649 unlocked tonight — Never mind that M9+ thing in China. Back in the US, it's all about the M9 for local HTC fans, as the device is about to hit the official online store at midnight ET for $649 unlocked (it'll have the same bands as the AT&T model).

Bloomberg: Apple will let Foxconn buy and resell used iPhones in China — Thanks to the consistently high local demand, the iPhone resell business is rather lucrative in China, to the point where even the company who actually manufactures the devices wants in as well. According to , Apple is about to launch an iPhone trade-in program in China (we're surprised that it's taken this long, to be honest), but it'll be Foxconn on the receiving end.

HTC's beefier M9 for China leaks with sharper screen and fingerprint reader — Rumor of a beefier HTC One M9 variant -- aka "M9+" -- had been floating around for some time, but we've remained skeptical until we came across the latest batch of leaks. Better yet, some of these are backed up by an official (poorly made but actually legit) Beijing launch invitation sent out earlier today; see for yourself after the break.

Oppo's next phone has a crazy slim screen bezel — The folks over at Oppo sure know how to tease. Well, that's my guess, anyway, based on the fact that several Chinese tech writers received the above photos from "anonymous" sources yesterday.

HTC CEO Peter Chou steps down to focus on innovation lab — Given HTC's roller coaster ride in the past couple of years, it's no secret that HTC's Peter Chou has always been more of a product guy than a manager. Well, the time has finally come for him to switch roles.

ASUS will soon let you add a xenon flash to its phones — Remember the good old days when phones came with a powerful xenon flash instead of just LEDs? Well, thanks to ASUS, you'll soon have the option to add one to an Android phone -- or at least to an ASUS one, anyway.

After Swype, HTC taps China's TouchPal for new Android keyboard — Tech-savvy users may have already come across TouchPal when trying different keyboards on Android and iOS 8 (and maybe even Windows 8), but it looks like a whole lot more people will be introduced to it soon.
