Cellebrite, which has pioneered mobile phone-to-phone content transfer with a range of dedicated in-store devices, has now introduced a PC-based version of its product.
Cellebrite DeskTop uses a conventional Windows-based computer to backup, restore and transfer information from a wide variety of mobile phones. It can also be used for fault diagnosis and app installation.
The HTC First smartphone, which is embedded with the Facebook Home application, looks unlikely to be seen in the UK.
There are also reports that sales of the device in the USA are being discontinued by the AT&T network.
