Just days after it unveiled a second gold One, HTC is releasing another variant of its Android flagship in an attempt to boost sales in the UK. Today, the company announced the availability of the HTC One Dual SIM, which you may already know as HTC One 802w. Just like it's Chinese counterpart, the device comes with a removable back for access to dual SIM slots and, more importantly, a microSD slot.
That means you can switch between SIMs to receive calls and also fall back on up to 64GB of external storage, should you max-out the One's 32GB of internal storage.
GAMERS IN NEW ZEALAND are going crackers over the costs of in-app purchases in Rovio's 'in case you missed Mario Kart' title Angry Birds Go.
Angry Birds Go takes the livid birds that we have come to love and throw at pigs and puts them in cars. You'll recognise the style of gameplay from many other games. Angry Birds Go steps things up by having birds as opposed to plumbers, hedgehogs and any number of other creatures as its stars.
What has annoyed the Kiwis about the game is the cost of some of the additional in-app purchases that people can make. These include a car, presumably some sort of supercar, that costs AUS$129, or about £70 in the UK.

Microsoft is reportedly looking for new ways to more securely encrypt its internet traffic amid concerns that the National Security Agency (NSA) may have breached its network. Citing sources familiar with the matter, the Washington Post reports that Microsoft executives are discussing possible encryption measures this week, and will determine how soon to implement them.
The move comes following revelations that the NSA has been secretly collecting user data from other tech giants. In October, the newspaper reported that the agency has been tapping into Google and Yahoo networks to obtain user information, according to documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Two unreleased documents mention Microsoft's Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger, and a leaked email includes a reference to the now-defunct Microsoft Passport service, though there's no evidence that the NSA was explicitly targeting the company.
Company officials told the Post they have no independent confirmation that Microsoft has been targeted under the program, known as MUSCULAR, though revelations about the NSA's surveillance of Google and Yahoo have heightened fears that had been brewing for months. It's not clear what Microsoft's new encryption measures would entail, but sources tell the paper that potential initiatives would span "across the full range of consumer and business services."
