HTC EVO 3D Getting Minor OTA Update, Seems To Remove Carrier IQ

It’s not Ice Cream Sandwich yet, but this new OTA update for the HTC EVO 3D should still bring some very nice improvements. Very nice, indeed.

Sprint’s official changelog doesn’t reveal much, except for the software version 2.17.651.5 and a generic “security update” bullet point. However, at least according to preliminary reports in our forums, Carrier IQ has been removed, which should be a very good reason for everyone to perform this update. Apart from that, there’s also a new kernel that’s said to improve battery life, and the new Android Market included.

The catch? It’s not rooted yet, so you may want to (or have to, if you’re perm-rooted) hold out for a bit. But then, automatic notifications for this update will only start on January 17 anway, so if you want to get it earlier you’d have to manually check by going to Settings > System updates > HTC software update > Check now.

Head over to the forum thread to join the discussion.

OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
