Following the mishap with the launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE by Sprint due to a litigation-related import delay, the HTC flagship device has finally been released in the US market. In the hopes of pushing the sale, Sprint has come out with an amazing offer.
Through Amazon Wireless, the HTC EVO 4G LTE can be yours for just $49.99 with a 2-year contract. Unfortunately, this offer is valid only for new Sprint customers, with existing customers required to pay the “full” $149.99 required if you choose to upgrade to this device.
As a quick recap, here are the specifications of Sprint’s flagship device:1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 [...]
It might have taken Samsung more time than anyone expected, but the Galaxy S3 is finally out there and the “overwhelming demand and limited supply” issues that tormented a lot of tech geeks this past week are vanishing one by one.
Sprint, who announced that it will start shipping the S3 on June 21 a few weeks back, only managed to get a limited number of 16 GB models of the new flagship phone out on the promised date. However, 32 GB versions of the S3 are now finally exiting the carrier’s warehouses and being shipped across the States to people who’ve pre-ordered the phone these past weeks.
The information has been confirmed by Sprint officials and the first [...]
In our fourth edition of the “How it Works” series, we’re going to talk about NFC, or near field communication, a technology that’s being adopted by more and more smartphone and tablet makers and mobile operators.
When talking about NFC use in the mobile ecosystem, you’re going to hear the term paired with mobile payments most of the time, because that may be one of its most important uses in the future. But there are other NFC uses on mobile devices you should be aware of, some of which are already available to Android device owners.What is NFC?
So you know what NFC stands for, but what is it really about and how does it work? Near field communication, is a [...]
Although we’ve been praising Samsung for making the new Galaxy S3 available on all major US carriers at (around) the same time, unlike what happened with the S2 last year, the actual releases haven’t been that well organized.
And despite the fact that there are many US tech users still waiting to get their hands on the S3, the independent developing community has worked unbelievably fast and has already managed to post root methods for all three American carrier-branded S3s available.
Our good pal Chris Smith told you earlier today all about the Sprint root, a hacking method that also works smoothly on the T-Mo S3, and now the AT&T rooting pack is up for [...]
Less than 48 hours after picking up on a leaked warehouse inventory document listing a white HTC EVO 4G LTE as coming soon, the new version of Sprint’s phone is now all but confirmed. Two new pieces of “evidence” on the existence of a white EVO 4G LTE have come to our attention, and we’re willing to bet it’s only a matter of time until Sprint will issue an official statement confirming the new handheld.
First off, today’s most solid and credible proof comes straight from Sprint, who’s unintentionally published a photo of the upcoming white EVO 4G LTE. At least we think it was unintentional, giving that this first glimpse of the supposed upcoming smartphone can be [...]
If you have been rather disappointed about not receiving a certain Samsung phone on time in the mail, perhaps you’d like to know about one recommended alternative that you can actually purchase right now, at a discounted price and with 24 hours shipping. We’re talking about Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE, the phone with the kickstand and huge 4.7-inch display.
It’s a well-known fact that purchasing your phone from a third-party will often be cheaper than getting it straight from the carrier. Amazon Wireless is currently offering the HTC EVO 4G LTE for only $129.99. The price, however, is only good for new subscribers of the carrier. The price for folks who are upgrading is [...]
Sprint’s recently launched HTC EVO 4G LTE appears to have a Google Wallet problem, and, while some people may have pointed the finger at the carrier for the mobile payment woes, it would appear that it’s a software glitch that’s causing all the commotion.
Google has confirmed to The Verge that the various errors with Google Wallet, including a notification that says the service is not certified “in your country or on your device / carrier” are caused by a software issue with the phone’s NFC chip.
The company is working with HTC and Sprint to solve the problem, and a software update is going to be rolled out at some point in the [...]
Black or white model – the latter possibly out soon – owners of HTC EVO 4G LTE won’t be able to use WiFi tethering on their device without having to resort to some creative solution, preferably one that doesn’t require paying an additional monthly fee to Sprint. Last we checked, the mobile hotspot plan costs $20 a month for 2GB and $50 for 6GB of data.
The same goes when trying to use some good old USB or Bluetooth network tethering, which is normally impossible due to carrier’s restriction. Fortunately, the task is but a simple one for the tinkerers at themikmik.com, who devised a method later shared on XDA-developers.
For those who are rather skilled, you can [...]
Samsung posted on its YouTube channel its first TV commercial for the Galaxy S3. The short 15-second clip, entitled “The Next Big Thing Is Here,” shows one of the features of the handset in action, Pop Up Play, or watching a video while performing another task on the large 4.8-inch touchscreen display – in this case texting. This sort of TV-like picture-in-picture feature will also work when browsing the web, writing emails and performing other tasks.
While this particular ad ends with Sprint’s logo, and a reminder that Sprint is the only carrier of the Big Four to still allow users to sign up for new unlimited data plans, the Galaxy S3 will [...]
Just as your black HTC EVO 4G LTE is settling down nicely in its new home after a prolonged pit stop at the Customs, there are now reports that a white EVO 4G LTE might be around.
A source has confirmed to Techno Buffalo that a white version of HTC EVO 4G LTE is in the works and will be introduced by Sprint and HTC. The proof is in the warehouse inventory pudding. As you can see on the screenshot below, the HTC X325C listing is none other than the white HTC EVO 4G LTE. While a specific launch date for the white version of the HTC EVO 4G LTE wasn’t mentioned, we’re sure we’ll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
Those who have made their purchase of the [...]
