During The HTC Utopia In Progress event, HTC discussed their work with the speakers of the M9. With Boomsound integration they aim to bring a "first class audio experience," featuring speakers similar to that of the previous HTC M8 model. As Graham Wheeler (Director of products, EMEA) and Aaron Baker (Senior Manager, Global Social Media) put it, "people are always listening to music on their phones, its an important part of the phone...

Jelly Bean Leak for the HTC One X
We’ve been keeping you up to date on all of the leaks for the various versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Many may be wondering where the HTC love is. Recently the HTC One X received its own Jelly Bean leak.
The Jelly Bean leak was shared by XDA Recognized Developer baadnewz. Unfortunately, it isn’t for your average flasher. Due to an issue with updating HBoot with S-On, the ROM has been released for developers only. So far, a number of members and developers have tested it out and have concluded that a lot of things aren’t working properly. This includes, in many cases, data and cell signal. Work is being done to find a way to flash the leak without losing the old, unlocked bootloader.
XDA Senior Member shadehh has taken this opportunity to write up a short FAQ on the arduous task of installing it if you really, really want to. Included in the FAQ is information about compatible CIDs and a short pros and cons list on whether updating to the leak is a good idea.
As with any leak, it is only a matter of time before developers sort out the nonsense and custom ROMs start appearing. So if you’re a little iffy on the leak now, you just have to wait until developers can get something more stable released. For more info, check out either the Dev Only thread or the FAQ thread.
