In addition to not saying a word about the actual release dates of the Galaxy Note 2 phablet, Samsung also failed to unveil pricing details for the device. Sure, the Galaxy Note 2 will sell both unlocked and bundled with multi-year plans with carriers, so it’s harder for Samsung to mention the price during a general event. But it could have hinted at some price points for the various Galaxy Note 2 versions that will soon hit stores.
Engadget has learned that Vodafone Germany plans to charge 640 Euros for the 16GB unlocked LTE version of the Galaxy Note 2, which translates to roughly $800. And that’s just for the 16GB version – remember that [...]
Last month, we reported a story regarding OTA Jelly Bean updates and its delay to the Nexus S. Then a few days after, we put out another story about the Nexus S getting the eventual update after the delay. Then just a few days ago, we reported about the Samsung ICS OTA update. What does all of this mean? It means we’re here to tell you Vodafone has finally made good on its promise and pushed out the OTA Jelly Bean Android 4.1 goodness!
At the moment, information is scarce about the Web, but the story is developing, and people are commenting all over Australia on their Nexus finally getting Jelly [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Note has had a wild ride, globally speaking, since it’s initial impression on the public almost a year ago. Tomorrow, the fun continues as the sweet phablet that shook the market gets a sweet upgrade to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As always, keep a steady connection and a full battery as OTA updates are never able to be foretold with an accurate date; they just kind of happen during a period of time, if at all. The carrier, Vodafone says, tomorrow is the start date so expect an update by week’s end to be safe. It looks as if this will be a [...]
Trying to shake off its second-tier (third?) image, Huawei has been polishing its Android offerings this year in hope that it will make the leap to the next class. The result can be seen in the company’s Ascend series. After being launched in Australia and Canada, the Ascend P1 will be vying for some love from UK customers soon.
The Huawei Ascend P1 will be available for purchase from Vodafone UK in early August – the full availability details haven’t been shared yet. But for those customers who don’t mind being tied to the carrier, the phone can be yours for free if you shell out at least £26 a month for the next two years on a Vodafone [...]
We don’t know how they do it, but it appears Vodafone Australia will bring the latest flavor of Android OS, codenamed Jelly Bean, to the Nexus S. The Android 4.1 upgrade for the Nexus S, which was first reported by Ausdroid, has been confirmed on the carrier’s blog and it will be released starting tomorrow.
In its software update weekly wrap, the Nexus S is written down as the first recipient of the Jelly Bean dessert. The status for the roll out is listed as:
“Approved by Vodafone, roll out by Google scheduled for 1:00pm AEST, 19th July 2012. Keep an eye on our blog for further [...]
Samsung had huge problems with the worldwide release of the S2 last year, needing several months to get the phone in stores across the five continents. Fortunately, the issues have disappeared with the new Galaxy S3 and we’re hoping to see the new flagship smartphone get from Europe and Asia to the US in less than a month.
Unfortunately, Sammy has still encountered some more minor issues with the phone’s distribution, and was forced to only offer the white 16 GB version in many markets. The 32 GB model has only started shipping in a couple of markets around the globe, while the Pebble Blue version’s shipments (both in 16 and 32 GB) have been delayed due to “production [...]
[Update] Since this article was written, Samsung has confirmed the delays in an official statement that you can read below.
Heads up, UK folks! There’s some bad news about the Samsung Galaxy S3 that you’d definitely want to know about. Some UK carriers and retailers are now reporting a possible shipment delay of the flagship phone.
Vodafone said that customers who pre-ordered the 32GB Marble White model of the phone aren’t likely to get the phones tomorrow. The carrier also mentioned the same delay will be faced by those who pre-ordered the 16GB and 32GB Pebble Blue models of the phone. It might take between two weeks and a month for customers for customers to [...]
