XDA-Developers Exclusive: First Leaked Pics of HTC Mazaa
While most of our stories deal with discussions about apps, games, and things that go on in the world of mobile phones, we do find interesting stuff “out there” from time to time. A very generous anonymous informant provided us with the first ever pictures (high quality too!) of one of HTC’s next upcoming devices. The code name for this guy is HTC Mazaa and it will run on Windows Phone 7. Judging from the pictures, it seems to have a single LED flash light, a single camera in the back (sorry, but no 3D shot coming out of this one), and what looks like a 3.7″ screen (not sure about the type of screen). Having said that, our source mentioned that it may be loaded with DDR2, but wasn’t sure and that it is coming to Sprint within the next 6 months. Also, one last interesting detail is that there seems to be an IMEI number on the device itself, which means GSM capabilities. So, we could very well be looking at the first Windows Phone 7 world phone. There was no mention on whether this device will include gyroscope capabilities or not, but one can only hope.
For those of you who wanted to see it, here are a couple of high resolution screenshots of the device.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
