Telus HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update delay explained by carrier

by: Chris SmithJuly 20, 2012

Last week, Telus told its subscribers that the HTC Desire HD will not be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich after the handset performed poorly in ICS testing. HTC did not share any details on the matter at the time, but it now seems that the Taiwanese Android manufacturer has decided not to go through with the update – the Desire HD was included in HTC’s ICS rollout plans.

MobileSyrup reports that while HTC Canada is yet to publicly respond, Telus further elaborated on this issue:

[…] TELUS stated in an email to us that “the decision to suspend the software for this device was made by HTC, not TELUS.” In addition, specifically [...]

Telus HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update canceled

by: Chris SmithJuly 14, 2012

We have recently seen a variety of Android devices get their Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades, even though Android 4.0 was unveiled seven months ago – ICS is currently found on around 10% of available devices, but not all Android handsets and tablets out there will get it.

One of the devices users would have wanted to see upgraded to ICS is the HTC Desire HD, but it looks like that’s not going to happen, at least in certain markets. In Canada, Telus announced that its Desire HD ICS upgrade has been canceled, as the device tested poorly when running Android 4.0.

The carrier issued a simple statement, without explaining exactly what went [...]

Telus to launch HTC One X on July 13 for $129.99

by: Bams SadewoJuly 12, 2012

To follow up on our report about the arrival of the HTC One X on Telus Mobility in Canada, we’ve got more news to share on the price of HTC’s flagship phone on the carrier and when you’ll be able to purchase one.

Although the carrier’s website still has the HTC One X listed as “coming soon”, a leaked internal document that was uncovered by Mobile Syrup indicates that the phone will arrive on July 13. This gives you a day to decide on whether to get Samsung’s latest and greatest – if you haven’t already done so – or pick HTC’s device instead.

If you’re still on the fence between the two, perhaps some price details of the HTC One X will help you make an informed [...]

Telus Mobility to start selling HTC One X soon

by: Bams SadewoJuly 5, 2012

About three months have passed since HTC One X was introduced in Canada. Previously only available on Rogers Wireless due to an exclusivity deal, the phone has finally made its leap to another carrier in the country, Telus Mobility.

The product page of HTC One X is now up on Telus’ website. It still says that the phone is coming soon, but Mobile Syrup reported they have received tips that the HTC One X will become available on Telus as early as July 6. We guess we’ll find out soon enough if we see any status update on its website tomorrow.

The arrival of HTC One X on Telus will complete the availability of the One series with the mobile operator – the [...]

Galaxy Note ICS update coming to Rogers on July 21, Telus in late July

by: Bams SadewoJuly 4, 2012

July is shaping up to be a good month for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note on Canadian carriers Telus Mobility and Rogers, specifically for those who have been waiting for the delectable Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.

Mobile Syrup has received a tip that Rogers will be rolling out the ICS update ahead of schedule. Initially, the update was pegged for a “late July” release, but an internal doc now indicates that it’s coming on July 21. Note that you’ll only be getting version 4.0.1 of the mobile OS, but at least it’s still an ice cream sandwich treat.

Thing are less rosy at Telus, who has just revised its ICS update timeline. Different from what [...]

Can’t find a Galaxy S3 in a Telus store? Here’s $50 to make up for it

by: AdrianJune 28, 2012

With all the madness surrounding the Galaxy S3 launch in the US and Canada, the delays and the “unprecedented global demand” issues, it was only a matter of time until carriers started to offer their customers special deals and discounts to make up for their boo-boos.

Surprisingly enough, the first carrier to announce such a special offer is Telus, Canada’s number three telecommunications service provider, and one of the networks where people could actually buy a Galaxy S3 starting yesterday.

Telus will offer any new customer who can’t find any a particular model of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in any of the carrier’s physical stores a free $50 credit “towards the [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally available in Canada, carriers still having problems with supply and demand

by: AdrianJune 27, 2012

After many months of feverish waiting and a couple of launch delays, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is now (sort of) available for sale in Canada. Yes, unfortunately, that “sort of” is completely called for, as most Canadian carriers are still facing major supply problems due to the already announced “unprecedented global demand” of the S3.

In theory, Canadian tech users have a bundle of choices of where to pick up the Galaxy S3 starting today and they could easily go for the Pebble Blue and Marble White versions with either 16 or 32 GB of on-board storage. However, in reality, things are far more complicated and you’ll have a tough job in even glancing at a dummy S3 unit in [...]

Best Buy Galaxy S3 pre-orders available again, in Canada

by: Chris SmithJune 22, 2012

North American carriers and electronics retailers are having a tough time keeping up with Galaxy S3 demand, which must certainly please Samsung, as the company expects to sell quite a few million Galaxy S3 units this year.

U.S. smartphone buyers interested in the Galaxy S3 already know that AT&T and Sprint have pushed back actual in-store launches, while Verizon will only get the handset in early July. On its part, T-Mobile is currently offering the most expensive Galaxy S3 in the region, and the mobile operator does not even offer 4G LTE support to Galaxy S3 buyers at this time, or anyone else for that matter.

Canadian buyers [...]

Telus updates its ICS timeline, Samsung Galaxy Note is first in line

by: Bams SadewoJune 16, 2012

Are you at your wit’s end waiting for that seemingly never-going-to-happen Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for your Android devices on Telus Mobility? Well, here’s a little ray of sunshine to brighten your days. As reported a while back, Samsung Galaxy S2 X owners have been given their ICS treat. Now Telus has updated its website with a new ICS timeline to let customers know when the latest Android flavor will come to their respective devices.

Starting with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray — although the list says that the carrier is still testing out the software, owners of the phone said that they’re already getting their ICS upgrade ahead of [...]
