It did take a while for a software update to be pushed to the myTouch and myTouch Q, but starting today the mid-rangers are treated with a new OTA package to “improve device performance and stability.” The upgrade leaves the handhelds stuck with Android 2.3.6, but ups the devices to build number C85B839SP03.
In the past weeks we saw rumor after rumor confirming the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is going to be available from all major U.S. carriers, unlike its predecessor that was an AT&T affair, with T-Mobile quickly changing its Galaxy Note launch plans.
The Galaxy Note 2 is Samsung’s latest addition to its high-end Galaxy-branded smartphone lineup, but we still have no idea when the device will hit stores. A recent leak revealed that German customers may get the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 2 LTE version in October and November, respectively, confirming what Samsung said on stage during its special Unpacked IFA 2012 event that we attended a few weeks back.
Despite some mess up with the date, news about the UK release of Sony Xperia T have been flooding in since the flagship phone was unveiled late last month, which may have to do with the fact that it’s going to be James Bond’s choice of communication device. But what of those in North America who have been scanning the papers for hints of its debut in the country? Worry not, because FCC got your back.
We’ve talked quite a lot these past few weeks about the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G , but we just couldn’t wrap our heads around the T-Mo-bound slider’s pricing. However, the Relay has now upped the ante in terms of tech specs, being ready to hit the market with an S4 CPU under its hood.
A company called RootMetrics recently visited 75 markets, drove 100,00 miles, and performed 500,000 speed tests, all in an effort to find out who has the fastest wireless network in the United States. They discovered that Verizon has the best network, which they frankly should, considering how much they charge their customers. Read on to see how the other carriers fare.
Although it has been in the news for the past couple of months, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is yet to be made available. Initially known as the Galaxy S Blaze Q, this was supposed to see the light of day on August 15, but for some reason it will go on sale with a delay of more than a month.
Now we’re going to tell you that more North American Galaxy S3 owners can install a pre-release Android 4.1.1 build for their handsets, as long as they don’t mind running an unofficial ROM – not that we’d ever encourage anyone to pursue such procedures.
Today we hear, via xda-developers, that Sprint could also stock the new phablet at some point later this year. An unannounced device was spotted, the SPH-L900, and apparently the codename stands for Sprint’s Galaxy Note 2 version. Neither Sprint nor Samsung have confirmed the rumor, so we look forward to see more official details on the matter.
Samsung’s latest mid-range slider has hit more than a few bumps on its road to the smartphone market, but after a couple of delays it is now slated for a release “in the coming weeks”. As rumored, the Galaxy S Relay 4G is headed to T-Mobile, but its pricing and exact launch date are still kept under wraps.
