Sprint has posted that the HTC EVO 3D version 2.17.651.5 update should start rolling out today. It’s a minor maintenance release that addresses the following:Updated Peep client (to align with Twitter) Battery life improvements Security update
I know you guys with the HTC EVO 3D are dissappointed you aren’t getting Ice Cream Sandwich yet. Yes, HTC did say they’d start rolling out ICS updates for their phones in January, but you know how updates are in the Android world unless you have a Nexus. Now back to the HTC EVO 3D and it’s newest maintenance release from Sprint and HTC.
The OTA should start rolling out to devices today, but you can [...]
Great news for all of us looking for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. The ads that had the Sprint Galaxy Nexus shown with only 16GB of storage seem to have been wrong. I emailed Sprint yesterday asking them why they weren’t offering the 32GB version, and they got back to me today saying that they are offering the 32GB version of the Galaxy Nexus. So now all your Sprint customers thinking of switching to Verizon just for the 32GB Galaxy Nexus don’t need to.
So now the question is will Sprint charge the same $299 that Verizon is charging? Or will it keep to it’s $199 pricing structure that they said they would keep for their LTE devices? We’ll have to [...]
Over the last couple of days we have seen a ton of Press releases, but it looks like we missed something important. Sprint slipped in some information with their Press Release of the Galaxy Nexus, and the LG Viper.
Sprint says they have 15 LTE devices set to launch in 2012, on top of that it looks like they will be keeping unlimited data for their LTE network. Good news right? Now we did not hear anything about throttling, so they could be taking the T-Mobile route and giving you a cap, and once you hit that cap reducing your network speeds.
Lastly, it was also stated that the prices of their LTE devices would not be crazily high like with Verizon – come [...]
Yesterday was a very busy day in the world of Tech, I’m sure you noticed here at Android Authority. After all we had 19 brand new devices announced yesterday by LG, Motorola, Samsung, Pantech, Sony, ASUS, and Lenovo, and CES is not even officially under way until today. Out of those 19 devices, AT&T announced 6 of them! Just to recap them so we know you didn’t miss anything, let’s go down the list – keep in mind most of these do not have prices or specific release dates yet.LG Spectrum: With a 720p and 4.5-inch display and sporting a 8MP back camera and a 1.3MP front camera, starting at only $199 on Contract at Verizon LG Connect 4G: One of [...]
Late last week ads leaked out on CNET’s CES page of a Sprint Galaxy Nexus, and today at CES 2012 it is official. Unlike the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Google Wallet will be on Sprint’s Nexus. We’ve also seen in those leaked ads from Friday and Saturday that the Sprint Nexus would have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor instead of the 1.2GHz dual-core processor that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and the GSM versions have. Sprint will only be offering the 16GB version, which is surprising since Verizon has a 32GB CDMA version of the Galaxy Nexus.
So why did Sprint announce it so far in advance? Their LTE Network won’t even be going live until around June, and [...]
At the Sprint investor conference earlier today, CEO Dan Hesse confirmed that Sprint is throttling data speeds for the top 1 percent of users, not going to point any fingers, and he seems to feel strongly about those that abuse the unlimited data plans on the nations number three carrier:
For those that want to abuse it, we can knock them off
Currently Sprint still maintains their mandatory unlimited data plan for all smartphones, CEO Dan Hesse did not make any hints or say anything about switching over to tiered data plans in the near future, but I am sure it’s coming since they now have the iPhone now and you see what happened [...]
Just recently, we wrote an article about all of the U.S. LTE wireless providers. It was easy to tell that Verizon had a firm grip on the LTE market in America. However, almost every other provider behind Verizon was either working on an LTE network, or building upon its current 4G network. However, Sprint, America’s third most popular wireless provier, was not working on an LTE network to our knowledge at the time of the article’s publication. Instead, Sprint had decided to lengthen their WiMAX deal with Clearwire. As soon as you think that Sprint is going to stay with WiMAX forever, their CFO begins to tell the public otherwise.
Sprint CFO Joe Euteneuer [...]
For those who are anticipating the upcoming CES 2012 in January, there are some new information you can look forward to. We have enough reason to believe that on this particular event, Samsung Mobile will be launching their first Android that’s powered by Intel. To add to this bit of information, the new phone will be a property of Sprint.
Recently, we’ve heard rumors that Samsung has plans to step out from the PC business; considering its immense success in Android devices. In an effort to stop this from happening, their partnership with Intel has been renewed. As you might have guessed, this renewal will only produce more smartphones in the upcoming [...]
As soon as you turn on your TV nowadays, chances are you are going to get blasted with tons of 4G or LTE commercials from all of the best wireless providers. Therefore, you are probably wondering which provider has the best 4G “LTE” network. First, we think it would be nice to define the terms “4G” and “LTE”:
4G: is the fourth generation of cellular wireless standards. It is a successor to the 3G and 2G families of standards.
LTE: This is also known as “3GPP Long Term Evolution”. Because LTE does not comply with the 4G standards, it is considered a pre-4G technology. However, the peak download speeds [...]
