HTC confirmed back in July that it will upgrade the One XL to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Fast forward to December, it seems the update has now hit the phone in several markets, U.S. not included.
We can always rely on Samsung to make the kernel files for its smartphones and tablets available for the masses, sometimes even before the device hits the market. The latest source codes for a trio of Galaxy devices have now been uploaded on Samsung’s Open Source website.
We talked about the Jelly Bean soak test for AT&T’s Motorola Atrix HD a few weeks back. It looks like the beta test went smoothly, as AT&T has announced on its website that the Android 4.1 software upgrade for the phone is now ready to be served for all.
XDA member itsmikeramsay has released unofficial CM10.1 ROMs for Galaxy S3 owners on T-Mobile and AT&T handsets. Whilst there are still some bugs to be worked out, it’s a great start for users looking to run Android 4.2 on their S3.
Two weeks ago, we saw the international 3G variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (GT-P7300) finally got their Android 4.0 package signed, sealed, and delivered. If you own the device on AT&T (SGH-i957), we’re happy to report that the Ice Cream Sandwich update is now available for your tab.
Google’s Nexus 4, also known as the Optimus G’s younger LTE-less brother does pack LTE support under the hood, or at least some of the required components, although don’t expect Google to turn it on at any point in the future.
Earlier today we showed you an interesting deal on an unlocked Galaxy S3 version (the GSM GT-I9300 model that doesn’t have LTE support) that sells for $499.99 on eBay, but not every Android buyer out there is looking to purchase a flagship handset at full price.
Last weekend we reported that the HTC One VX was believed to be on its way to AT&T with an expected arrival date of December 7th. Now AT&T has officially confirmed that the One VX is available as of today for just $49.99 with a two year contract.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is selling like hotcakes, and Google Wallet continues to gain ground as a leader in the mobile payment space. Sadly, you can’t use both together. Luckily for U.S. users, there’s an unofficial solution to that problem. Unless you use Verizon.
With Samsung, HTC and Sony reportedly hard at work on their 2013 flagship smartphones, it was only a matter of time until LG’s next top-tier device made its own shiny appearance in the news. Now Optimus G’s successor has been spotted in GlBenchmark’s database, though we welcome it with mostly mixed feelings.
