Forums Added for the US HTC One Variants, HTC First, and Nvidia Project Shield

During the past week, we’ve created several new forums for exciting new mobile devices. Not too long ago, we took a look at the HTC One at its launch event in New York City. We then promptly put it through its paces with a round of benchmarks. After we found it to be a solid performer, we then decided to give it a home in our forum. Now, its US variants can also share in the joy with forums of their own.

Despite opening ourselves up to various cheesy puns based on the device’s name, we also decided to create forums for the HTC First. HTC’s Facebook-friendly device is interesting not only because it is the First device to feature Facebook Home, but also because it ships with a relatively untainted version of Jelly Bean—something we haven’t seen from HTC since the G2. Finally, we’re also adding Nvidia’s new gaming platform, Project Shield. While not quite a phone or a tablet, this Tegra 4- and Jelly Bean-powered device aims to take the mobile gaming market in Q2 2013.

Those looking to get in on the action can do so by visiting the new forums below:

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
