By now, every Android fan in the U.S. knows that the Galaxy S3 is coming to five carriers this month – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular – and we have already shown you what you need to know about each of the five Galaxy S3 offers.
But what’s really worth mentioning (and somewhat surprising for us) is the fact that Samsung has finally managed to beat carriers at their own game. Instead of custom Galaxy S3 versions for U.S. carriers we have a unified design that’s available in all international markets. Instead of custom names for the Galaxy S3 versions sold by the five carriers, we have one single name, which happens to [...]
After Samsung announced the U.S. availability of the Galaxy S3 earlier today, we saw Verizon schedule Galaxy S3 pre-orders for June 6 and T-Mobile set June 21 as its own Galaxy S3 launch date. Now it’s time to take a look at Sprint’s Galaxy S3 launch plans, as the carrier has just issued its own press release to announce the phone.
The Sprint Galaxy S3 version will be available in stores starting with June 21, and just like Verizon, Sprint will price its Galaxy S3 version at $199.99 and $249.99, for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively, when purchased with new two-year contracts. The device will be sold through all channels: Sprint Stores, [...]
The next big thing is here, Sprint writes on the banner of the e-mail invitations that the carrier is sending out today, and they want you to be the first on the block to try the phone out. Of course, the next big thing refers to none other than the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its huge 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display. As usual, Sprint was careful not to name any names, but it’s pretty obvious that it will be the S3.
Sprint’s invitation corresponds well to Samsung’s recent official announcement about the coming of Galaxy S3 on major US carriers in the next few weeks. Samsung Telecommunications America president Dale Sohn said that “The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S III [...]
Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE is basically an HTC One X version, customized for the nation’s third largest carrier. The handset was supposed to be available in Sprint stores already, but the launch was delayed by the U.S. Customs, which held various HTC devices for quite a while in order to verify whether those devices were infringing a certain patent. While the EVO 4G LTE and his twin One X were cleared, American Android fans can only purchase the CDMA/LTE version, as there’s no release date yet for AT&T’s model.
Just as previously announced, the Sprint EVO 4G LTE can finally be purchased starting today and the device costs $199.99 with new [...]
The much awaited Galaxy S3 will not disappoint Americans, like it happened last year with the delays that marred the release of the Galaxy S2. According to a Samsung official statement, the Galaxy S3 will arrive in the US in a few weeks, with details to be revealed in the coming days. As we suspected, the device will launch on five carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
This is a big improvement over last year, when US customers had to wait not only for the Galaxy S2 to arrive in US, but also had to wait many weeks for the device to hit their carrier. Samsung has clearly learned from the past, and now that they’ve become the world’s [...]
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 [...]
