We know HTC as primarily high-end and mid-range device maker. They have repeatedly stated the lack of interest in the cheapest smart device category, and since the not so successful Wildfire series, never really ventured into the sub $200 smartphones. Motorola hasn’t introduced a single new smartphone in the US since 2012. But it will do it starting “late summer”, when the long-rumored Moto X is going to be released. AT&T has just announced that the BlackBerry Q10 will be available to buy from its stores and online on June 21. The LG Optimus G Pro has reached the one million sales milestone in the company’s home country of South Korea. After many weeks of leaks, both unofficial and official, the Huawei Ascend P6 has been unveiled today in London. T-Mobile USA’s Xperia Z wasn’t much of a secret lately, so it’s no surprise that today Sony and the fourth largest American carrier have finally (and officially) confirmed its upcoming release. Seen yesterday in a leaked video, the HTC Desire 200 is now official, as it’s appeared over at HTC’s global website. Samsung has started rolling out a software update for its Galaxy Note II – the GT-N7100 version. Unfortunately, the update doesn’t bring Android 4. Since its introduction in late 2012, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 has not received any major software update. A few days ago, AT&T announced that it would start selling an LTE-capable version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
