T-Mobile USA has updated its support page for the HTC Sensation 4G, finally bringing some news on the Android 4.0.3 ICS upgrade that owners of the phone have been longing for. After promising early in the month that the update to Ice Cream Sandwich would be here “very soon”, the carrier is now ready to open its dessert bar on May 16.
As stated on T-Mobile’s website, the OTA update for the HTC Sensation 4G will roll out starting May 16. Aside from all of the features of ICS that one can expect, such as Face Unlock and re-sizeable widgets, you will also get HTC Sense 3.6 as part of the package. T-Mobile promises improved battery life performance as well.
It looks like T-Mobile has decided to take a swipe at AT&T and the iPhone 4S in their latest ad campaign, which isn’t really an original concept.
The ad begins with a fairly dim witted looking guy cruising slowly on a motorbike, meant to represent the iPhone on AT&T’s network. Along comes a motorbike at breakneck speed (yes, that’s the 4G one), with a hot lady at the helm, and she rips by in the blink of an eye. All the while, T-Mobile asks the viewer to contemplate the answer to the question: “If this is the speed of the iPhone 4S on AT&T, what does 4G speed on T-Mobile look like?”
If pictures are worth a thousand words and videos are [...]
Huawei might have changed its marketing strategy here and there and started to realize that it has to make a push in the high-end smartphone segment. But old habits die hard, which is why the Chinese are still churning low-end Android handsets. The latest entry level gadget to come from the makers of the world’s thinnest and the world’s most powerful smartphones is called the Prism and will be marketed as a T-Mobile exclusive device.
The T-Mobile Huawei Prism was unveiled yesterday without much fuss and will start selling off-contract in just a couple of days and on-contract in three weeks. The phone’s pricing is affordable by any standards and you will be able to get [...]
We won’t blame owners of the HTC Sensation 4G – or any other model, for that matter — that get rather testy when it comes to the topic of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But the tossing and turning in bed waiting for the upgrade might soon be a thing of the past. Although a recent leak about T-Mobile’s planned ICS upgrade schedule indicated that HTC Sensation 4G will only get the latest Android OS in mid-June, it appears the carrier is ready to roll it out faster.
The good news comes from none other than the support forum on T-Mobile’s website. Posted on May 2, the carrier said that they’ve completed the testing process of ICS for HTC Sensation 4G and that they [...]
HTC seems to be really going out of its way to somehow overshadow the Galaxy S3’s unveiling set to take place in London today and is just throwing special deals and promotions at us. Vodafone UK’s One X and S had their prices slashed recently and, today, US smartphone lovers have their own reasons to be happy with HTC. T-Mobile’s Sensation 4G is available for a limited time only for free (with contract), which is a fabulous deal anyway you look at it.
The Sensation might not be as snappy and elegant as the One X, but is still a pretty great gadget and, it will most likely satisfy your thirst for technology, without paying a dime.
On the other hand, if you think [...]
T-Mobile customers desperately waiting for ICS updates on their Android-based devices might have gotten enraged a couple of days back, but now have reasons to rejoice. An update schedule for three of T-Mo’s frontrunners has been leaked by tmonews.com. While neither of the trio will be updated to Android 4.0 in the next days or so, all three gadgets are set to be running Ice Cream Sandwich in the not so distant future.
If the leaked document proves to be accurate, the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Amaze 4G will be getting a nice touch of ICS on June 16, while the Samsung Galaxy S2 will go to the next software level on May 14.
That’s right, the S2 should provide you [...]
T-Mobile is aiming to claw its way back into the competitive carrier race in the US. As such, it has launched a massive image re-branding campaign to advertise its fast HSPA+ network and is slowly adding to its lineup of “4G” devices. Joining this lineup now is the HTC One S. The younger sibling of the highly-acclaimed HTC One X, the specifications of the One S are nothing to scoff at:Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0 4.3″ Super AMOLED display 540×960 resolution 1.5 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor 1GB RAM 16GB internal storage 8MP rear camera, with HTC ImageSense, VGA front camera 1650 mAH battery
The device will be available for [...]
T-Mobile is certainly taking its image re-branding plan seriously, in an effort to become competitive again in the race for US network carrier supremacy (or at least survival). T-Mobile is already releasing the HTC One S today, and now the rumors of T-Mobile getting its hands on the very popular Samsung Galaxy Note seem to be coming to fruition, according to a leak revealed of TmoNews, an unofficial blog for everything T-Mobile.
Interesting points to note from the above images, that give the rumor some credence are:Most obviously, the T-Mobile branding at the top of the device above the screen Inclusion of carrier apps such as My T-Mobile, T-Mobile Name [...]
No big surprises here, but T-Mobile subscribers will finally get that dream phone that has been rather lacking in the carrier’s lineup as of late. That’s right – HTC One S has been officially announced by T-Mobile, making the HTC One S the first of the One series to reach the eager hands of US customers, after they were first announced way back in February.
HTC One S will not only become T-Mobile’s flagship device, but it will also be the first on the carrier to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4. From the phone’s 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 4.3-inch Super qHD AMOLED display, 16GB internal storage, to its unibody aluminum case, [...]
T-Mobile, has faced a difficult few years, losing a lot of customers due to the absence of an official iPhone in its lineup, and with the AT&T buyout failing due to regulatory hurdles. Long story short, the No. 4 carrier in the US is now scrambling to become relevant again, in a race dominated by carrier powerhouses AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.
Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile’s parent company, will invest over $4 billion in its American operations to erect a 4G LTE network. In the meanwhile, the company hopes to complete the rollout of its HSPA+ “4G” network, which is more akin to an advanced 3G technology than true 4G. There are also plans to pump [...]
