When it comes to that buttery smooth Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3, those in the UK fare better than American folks who may not get the update until 2013.

HTC’s latest mid-range budget offering, the Desire X, didn’t exactly look like a phone to make the crowds very excited, so it didn’t come as a big surprise when the weeks passed and we didn’t hear a thing about its release. However, exciting things are finally happening to the Desire X, at least in the UK.
Vodafone is now stocking the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. This news comes just days after the handset was initially released in the UK. The additional UK carriers will be releasing the device in the next couple weeks, along with EE’s 4G network.
EE has officially announced it will launch its 4G service in the UK on October 30th in ten lucky cities. What does that mean for the rest of the UK carriers? Telecommunications watchdog Ofcom has now confirmed that 4G services will reach the other carries starting around the spring and summer of 2013.

UK mobile provider O2 is teaming up with HTC to start selling an unnamed, announced phone that comes without a charger in the box. The device will be released sometime by the end of this year. The idea here is to help save the planet by reducing the number of chargers circulated.
If you’re in the UK, chances are you’ve been waiting with baited breath over the eventual release of this monster device. Well, the wait comes to an end next Tuesday, when Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile and Orange start taking orders through Phones4u, a well known UK retailer.
UK is still in pole-position to get the Xperia T and J before any other market, and we’ve now started to hear about the carriers preparing to start selling the two phones. As expected, no carrier will be getting exclusivity over any of the devices, which is good news for regular users, who’ll have more freedom of choice.
