    A little earlier today, we mentioned the news that a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S II on T-Mobile seemed to imply that Isis NFC-based mobile payments would soon be available to the smartphone's users. Now we have a few more details to add, including just when the service will go up, where it will be available, and what other phones will work. Back in February, we heard that the first-wave launch would be in Salt Lake City, UT, and Austin, TX. That was supposed to take place sometime this summer, but we didn't know quite when. It's now been confirmed that those two are still the ...

    After getting news of HTC Android shipments being held-up in customs on their into the US, we heard from the manufacturer that progress had been made towards resolving the situation, and sure enough, eventually saw the EVO 4G LTE start making it into the hands of customers. Today, HTC is announcing a full resolution of these import issues. Last week, HTC released a statement reading, "some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators' clients in the US". As a result, we could see that the tide was turning in HTC's favor, but it wasn't clear at ...

    For about the past month or so, owners of HTC's Amaze 4G on T-Mobile have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the update that would bring their phones Ice Cream Sandwich. T-Mobile first tipped subscribers off to the news that updates for both the Amaze 4G and Sensation 4G would be here quite shortly; that seemed to imply that the previously-rumored June dates for the arrival of these updates might be off. Sure enough, we soon got word of a confirmed release date for the Sensation, but found ourselves waiting just a little longer for news on the Amaze. Last week, though, the carrier ...

    The AT&T HTC One X and Sprint EVO 4G LTE (plus probably the T-Mobile Amaze 4G) were affected by U.S. Customs reviews and were delayed from the shelves because of an ITC ban imposed in defense of an Apple patent. The ban came into effect on April 19 and the manufacturer as well as the operators couldn't tell anything specific regarding a timeframe for resolving the issue. According to recent reports, HTC has issued a statement in Taiwan that brings some relieving information: "Some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators’ clients in the ...

    As if the recent news regarding Motorola's struggles with the enforcement of software patents wasn't upsetting enough, there's now some further info concerning HTC and its own problems with import bans, and it doesn't sound good. Earlier this week, we learned that the One X and EVO 4G LTE were having their State-side arrival held up by the enforcement of rulings concerning software features of the handsets. It only seemed like it was going to be an issue for these new models, but tonight there are some signs that the effects of this ban may be far more widespread. HTC's Amaze 4G landed at ...

    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, announcing the arrival of Ice Cream ...

    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 3.2-megapixel camera. That ...

    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 support docs for a couple ...

    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 March, with the launch of ...

    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 update for ...

    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 and WiFi connections in general should be more ...

    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 Kernel codes for ...

    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 Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze 4G ...

    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 pixels than the Galaxy S II. Both the ...
