Just a few weeks back, it looked like owners of the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile weren’t going to get their official upgrades to Ice Cream Sandwich until well into June, at least according to a leaked roadmap. Since then, though, comments made by the carrier have suggested a much sooner release date for the update, with news that its requisite testing had successfully been completed. While T-Mobile said the update would be here “very soon”, it hadn’t committed to any particular date. Today, we see T-Mobile update its support pages for the Sensation 4G, [...]
HTC’s One S may be the hot new phone on T-Mobile, especially if you’re looking for an Ice Cream Sandwich model, but there are plenty of more devices on the way, along with a number of ICS updates for existing handsets in the pipeline. A recently-leaked roadmap give us a look at what we can expect from the carrier as we start to get into summer.
Huwaei has quite few Androids getting ready to join the T-Mobile family. First up, there’s the Astro, which could hit the carrier as soon as May 9. This is a low-end Gingerbread handset with a 3.5-inch HVGA display and [...]
HTC’s been doing a decent job keeping us informed of its work towards bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to owners of existing handsets. The company has announced which models are due to see updates headed their way, and we’ve already seen them start showing up for Sensation-line models. Of course, a manufacturer bringing Android 4.0 to one of its unlocked handsets is a very different thing from a carrier delivering such an update to its subscribers, so we’re always looking for that extra confirmation wherever we can get it. The latest comes from T-Mobile, updating the [...]
As we start to get into mid-February, there are probably a lot of you out there wondering where all the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for your existing Android phones are. After all, weren’t we hoping to see these releases really start arriving in early 2012? The good news is that the wait is nearly over, at least for some HTC users. The smartphone manufacturer posted a message to Facebook this morning talking about plans for the delivery of its first Ice Cream Sandwich updates in March.
We already knew about HTC’s plans to start selling phones running Android 4.0 in [...]
Back in November HTC told its users about initial plans to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich update to some of its devices. These were the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G.
HTC Turkey seems to have taken to Facebook a table (the one above) detailing devices that will get the new Android update as well as an approximate time for the roll-out process. Aside from a confirmed December 2011 date for the EVO 3D (which seems to be late), the list says January will be the month to expect the [...]
A leak once suggested that the HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile would receive an update to enable placing calls over WiFi in mid-November. That didn’t end up going down as expected, but an additional leak addressed the WiFi-calling update and suggested it would finally be out in the “near future”. We suppose “one month” falls under that category, and T-Mobile has just released the details on the Amaze’s latest update today.
System software version 1.43.531.3 includes a bunch of bugfixes. The clock widget will now change time zones correctly, Bluetooth [...]
The Taiwanese phone maker recently announced that it officially released the Kernel source code for four additional devices. These are the recently announced HTC Rezound, HTC Explorer (Pico), HTC Desire S and the HTC Amaze (4G).
Source codes are always fund and incredibly useful as they not only allow users to take a look under the hood and report any bugs they might find but even give developers and chefs a chance to either extract goodies or use the bits to create custom ROMs for devices. If you’re interested in either of the above, follow the source link to grab the new [...]
WiFi calling is a great feature for the T-Mobile phones that support it; it can let you make calls from deep within buildings where cellular signals struggle to penetrate, and if you’ve got the right plan option these voice calls won’t even count against your minutes. Of course, this feature is only useful if your smartphone supports it. A new leak shows that T-Mobile is at work on bringing WiFi calling to a couple more Androids, and that it hopes to release the needed updates shortly.
A leak last month claimed that WiFi calling would be enabled for the Samsung [...]
If you’ve been waiting for either one of these two phones, you should be happy to find out that both the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Amaze 4G are now available on T-Mobile’s website.
The T-Mobile Galaxy S II packs a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, HSPA+ capability, but won’t be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos processor but will use a Qualcomm chip APQ8060 clocking at 1.5GHz. It goes for $229.99 with a two-year contract.
The HTC Amaze 4G packs a similar 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, has NFC support, and a 4.3-inch qHD display which packs more [...]
We got a new look at the HTC Amaze 4G (once-Ruby) this past weekend, as it will appear when it launches on T-Mobile. Today the carrier officially announced the smartphone at its GigaOm Mobilize 2011 keynote event, assigning the handset a launch date and price. It wasn’t just the Amaze 4G in the spotlight, though, and the carrier also came forward with the same details for the Samsung Galaxy S II’s launch.
We’ve known about the Amaze/Ruby hardware for some time now, with its 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, NFC support, and 4.3-inch qHD display. There are a few tidbits [...]
