While the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already available in various international markets, US Android fans interested in purchasing the company’s 2012 flagship smartphone will have to wait at least a few more weeks to get it, if recent rumors are correct.
The phone is expected to land in U.S. stores on June 20, at which point you’ll be able to get your Galaxy S3 flavor from one of the four major mobile operators – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are already confirmed to carry the Galaxy S3 – or from one of the regional carriers that will surely pick up the phone.
Meanwhile, the first press photo of a U.S. Galaxy S3 version has been [...]
The long wait to get the HTC EVO 4G LTE is finally over for EVO enthusiasts. After being held up since May 18, Sprint has announced that the phone will be hitting retail stores this Saturday on June 2. Got your $200 ready? Good.
Getting the HTC EVO 4G LTE should be as easy as making your way to Sprint stores, buying it from the carrier’s website, or ordering through telesales operators, starting tomorrow. For those who prefer to do it the traditional way, it’s best to call your local branches ahead to check for the phone’s availability. Some people are reporting that several stores apparently weren’t even aware of the new launch date yet. It’s possible that not all [...]
After some of its smartphones have been slapped with an import ban, which effectively quashed the dreams of many Sprint customers to have their HTC EVO 4G LTE on the original May 18 launch date, HTC announced today that the two held up devices, HTC EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X, have received clearance to enter US soil. Normal shipments for the two models can finally resume.
According to the company’s official statement, they have “completed the review process with US Customs and HTC devices have been released, as they are in compliance with the ITC’s ruling. Future shipments should continue to enter the US and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand [...]
Who says that nothing good ever comes out of a tragedy? Calling it one might be an exaggeration, but that’s probably how Sprint’s customers felt when they found the launch of the HTC Evo 4G LTE had been pushed back. Now that the debacle is almost behind us, in order to win back the hearts of many disappointed customers over the shipment delay of the HTC Evo 4G LTE, Sprint decided to ship an extra box to those who pre-ordered the phone and have been waiting for it to arrive at their doorsteps since May 18.
Inside the extra box is a gel cover for the HTC Evo 4G LTE. There’s also a note that says ”HTC and Sprint want to thank you for your [...]
The LG LS860 “Cayenne” is certainly not camera shy. After we’ve seen it yesterday in all it’s naked glory, the ever resourceful guys at Brief Mobile have uncovered a new image of the slider phone. More importantly, this new report brings along the confirmed specifications of the phone, which will, no doubt, please QWERTY phone aficionados.
It seems we’ve underestimated just how powerful the LG LS860 is going to be. Instead of the 1.2GHz Snapdragon S3 processor that we reported yesterday, it’s now confirmed that the LG LS860 will sport the much more powerful dual-core 1.2GHz S4 Krait processor. On top of such a desirable processor, the LG [...]
While just a week ago we were getting worried about the HTC EVO 4G LTE’s release, due to a customs debacle that delayed US shipments, the good news about Sprint’s new flagship are now coming in packs.
Less than 24 hours after the first units should have started shipping to those of you who pre-ordered the phone, the independent Android developers community has itself made the device more accessible to the masses.
That’s right, folks, there’s already a root method available for the EVO 4G LTE and it’s pretty simple and straightforward. The entire step-by-step guide on how to root (and unroot) the new handheld can be found on this XDA-developers forum thread, [...]
Sprint’s own take on the HTC One X, the EVO 4G LTE, should have started shipping almost a week ago, but the release had to be delayed due to an import ban. Fortunately, HTC and Sprint managed to get everything in order blazing fast, and, as promised the day before yesterday, pre-ordered EVO 4G LTE phones will start shipping today.
The news isn’t officially confirmed, but we have several trustworthy sources telling us that Sprint and BestBuy will cover all pre-orders made for the EVO 4G LTE by the end of the day. InsideSprintNow has been tipped about Sprint pre-orders, while the guys at AndroidCentral managed to get their hands on a leaked memo from BestBuy, saying that [...]
Less than 24 hours after seeing Verizon’s Galaxy S3, codenamed SCH-I535, getting Bluetooth SIG’s approval, we now have the best of news for fans of the other three major US carriers. The Galaxy S3 has gotten certified in three more versions and will most definitely hit Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile in addition to Big Red.
The news is very refreshing – we are now almost sure that the Galaxy S3 will come to all of the major networks in America, at about the same time. That’s a huge step forward for Samsung, who enraged many tech enthusiasts last year, with the scattered releases of the Galaxy S2. Not only did the S2 come very late to the United States in 2011, [...]
Looks like HTC has done a pretty good job of dealing with the import bans of the HTC EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X, a major annoyance that has delayed the shipments of the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint customers.
After HTC announced that the problem has been partially resolved, it didn’t take long for Sprint to update its website and inform customers who have pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE that the kickstand-equipped phone will arrive on their doorsteps on or around May 24.
The carrier stopped short of announcing a new date for the nationwide availability of the EVO 4G LTE in retail stores, but we wouldn’t be too surprised to see more announcements coming from Sprint [...]
For many, waiting is the most boring thing to do, and it’s even worse when you don’t even know how long you have to wait for.
Though there’s no official confirmation yet from Sprint, your wait for the HTC EVO 4G LTE might end sooner rather than later. Responding to the US import ban on the company’s two flagship phones, the HTC EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X, HTC was apparently able to speed up the customs’ review process. Note that initially we were told that the review could take up to three weeks.
In a written statement that the company has filed to the Taiwan Stock Exchange, HTC revealed the good news. “Some of our products have passed the review and have been [...]
