Pretty sure this is an April Fool's joke, but if not, it's amazingly ridiculous. Good for a few chuckles. :lol:

Pretty sure it is, Samsung put something similar out too.

The Pokemon joke put out by Google is still my favorite so far. That's probably due to that being my dream job from the ages of 4-12 :P.

Google probably has the best april fools joke every single year.

 

Also, "translate to emoji" for chrome on mobile devices is pretty awesome as well.

That one made me laugh for a bit, then I saw the "baby shaming" one...I'll let everyone make up their own minds on that one.

I wish tech companies stayed out of the "April Fools" trend. Yeah it can make you laugh, but can confuse too many.

I get where you're coming from, but is it really tech companies fault that Americans are as dumb/gullible on average as we are? I really had fun running around my local outlet malls the other day "catching Pokemon" with Google maps while I was waiting people to finish shopping...

Some of the other jokes though like the smart gloves/shoes I can see as maybe taking it a bit too far.

Oh, I think the Pokemon is a cool idea. It's the fake gadgets or fake release news, etc. etc.

At least they didn't push out a fake 4.4.3/new OS. That'd have been cruel

One of my brothers sent me the link last night, but I didn't have a chance to look at it until this afternoon. The thumbs up to like a Facebook post and "ARMIE > SELFIE... Beautiful sunset? Pound it." had me laughing pretty good.

Unless they're using these fake gadgets to test the waters on some ideas they have kicking around in product development. Wouldn't surprise me if someone at least looked at the responses to these to see if there is anything worth pursuing.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
