HTC has been having a lot of issues recently, most of them financial and the reason for that is the underwhelming response from customers for its products. They have made some choices in the recent past that aren’t really favoured by the public and now, they are launching a new program to help solve that issue.
Back in July, Google had announced that they will be reducing the minimum purchase price on the Play Store to Rs 10 in India if the developer chooses to do so. Now, Google is making similar changes to the Play Store across parts of South East Asia as well.

Apple announced the iPad mini yesterday along with the 4th Generation iPad.

The advancement of Android in Asia is strikingly impressive.

Samsung Galaxy R was recently spotted in Sweden which is actually affordable cousin of the Samsung Galaxy S II which is also known as one of the best Android handsets available in the market, and it’s also one of the reasons Samsung is expecting amazing sales this year. Well, if you are low on budget and need a device like SGSII, then I would suggest you to have a look on Galaxy R.
