    The world is preparing for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, expected to be unveiled at a pre-IFA event in Berlin at the end of this month. However, the original Galaxy Note has just become available on T-Mobile after a very long period of waiting, as implied by earlier rumors. It is be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Samsung’s Premium Suite bundled out of the box (aside from the T-Mobile 4G Pro App Pack, containing apps like Dropbox, Evernote, Square, TripIt, CamScanner and LinkedIn,). Those who want to have the phone with a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touch screen and ...

    As we discussed in the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, the HTC One X with its quad-core Tegra 3 processor, was acting kind of sluggish at times, which is really something people were not expecting to experience on a processor that has four cores (and runs Ice Cream Sandwich with a slimmed down Sense 4.0). HTC however looks to be working hard to eliminate those glitches. According to reports, there's a custom ROM for the International One X, based on a purportedly leaked RUU which contains Sense 4.1 and Android 4.0.4. There's a truckload of improvements and fixes out of ...

    A 1.7GHz quad-core Android made by HTC surfaced in form of a rumor back mid last month and more recently there is talk about a certain HTC One X+ allegedly coming to T-Mobile with the same processor speed. The image above represents benchmark results on NenaMark for a certain HTC PM63100. Except for the details in the result, there's nothing to go by but these specs listed here might hint towards the One X refresh already rumored. We're looking at a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 SoC, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and an HD display with 1280x720 resolution. These all scream high-end (and even flagship, ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was launched together with the Galaxy S II at last year's MWC in Barcelona (mid-February) but it only just now gets an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, alongside upcoming refreshes for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 WiFi, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi, according to reports. If you have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi and you live in the UK, you will probably be able to upgrade via KIES or over-the-air. The official ROM pushed out in the UK wears a build date of July 17 and the version numbers are: PDA - P7510XXLPH, CSC - ...

    The U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already received an update to disable local search -- in order to avoid future possible Apple litigation -- and now it is time for the international/unlocked variant of the phone to get a "stability update" which seems to kill the feature. While our international Galaxy S III didn't receive the notification yet (and KIES reports that everything is up to date), reports talk about a specific XXBLG6 build which is being pushed and labeled as a "stability update". In reality, it appears to remove the ability to do local searches for contact and ...

    No, it is not Jelly Bean, or at least not just yet. As Michael Fisher points it out in his editorial as well as the After the Buzz episode dedicated to the phone, Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners are not happy owners when it comes to the Nexus experience and timely Android platform updates. However, a leak from Verizon's system is showing an upcoming OTA update for the phone. It is reportedly build IMM76Q and there are so far mixed reports: some believe it is a performance improvement and bug fix update while others consider it to be a very small refresh meant to avoid future possible ...

    Samsung expected to top 10 million Galaxy S III units sold in July and it looks like the South Korean manufacturer managed to do just that, after reporting nine million units pre-ordered in May. Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung's information technology and mobile communication division, confirmed the ten million number, less than two months since its availability date at the end of May. However, Samsung did not provide exact numbers and gave out no information whatsoever regarding the U.S. Galaxy S III which became available in June. Still, the Galaxy S III can easily become Samsung's ...

    If you have HTC's first 3D-enabled smartphone on Sprint, the EVO 3D, or the EVO Design 4G, you will only have to wait a couple of weeks until the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update notification will hit your device, according to an official announcement from the carrier. Ice Cream Sandwich is no Jelly Bean but it surely is no Gingerbread either. It brings you all the great goodies, like the refined user interface, Face Unlock, Google+ integration, better keyboard and so on. Early August is just around the corner so you still have some time to say goodbye to your current ROM (in ...

    The HTC One X is one of the best smartphones in the market. It packs one of the best designs we've seen on any device in the last couple of years, and the quad-core power that we've been dreaming about since last year. Obviously devices behave one way when you buy them and differently once you fit them to your specific needs after weeks of use. Now that all the buzz is over, and after a couple of months of real-world use, it's time for another episode of After The Buzz, where we intend to answer many of the questions that we get asked all the time: Is it still worth it to buy an HTC One X ...

    Whether you are an Android, Samsung, phablet, Galaxy Note or T-Mobile fan, this should be exciting. After a long period of waiting the carrier finally announced, and officially, that the Samsung Galaxy Note becomes part of its line-up. Is it too late for the Galaxy Note, knowing that it will turn one year old next month and probably there's already a refresh in the not-so-distant future? It will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box with the Premium feature set installed (S Pen, S Note, S Memo and Polaris Office), feature the same 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, 4G (HSPA+ ...

    The developer community is hard at work to bypass the locked boot loader on the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III -- because of all U.S. SGSIII variants, the Big Red version is the only one locked down -- but the carrier might have come to its senses, at least according to some alleged Customer Service replies. Sure, there will be a Developer Edition which is targeting power users (and it's even surfaced on Samsung's official website), but the main phone shouldn't be locked. The Customer Service reply implies that "there will be a solution soon coming. Samsung will be releasing a software ...

    One of the exciting things about Android is the ability for skilled community developers to dismantle and port stuff from one phone to the other. HTC Sense 4.0 was a big deal when the One family landed -- and there were also ports -- and now it is time for those who want a cleaner launcher to get Samsung's own TouchWiz UX Nature from the Galaxy S III to their Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phone. It has already been confirmed to work on a solid number of devices so your chances of success are rather high. You need to be rooted though; if you are, installation is as simple as dropping an APK ...

    That's right, it's another review of the Samsung Galaxy S III.  This time we've got the AT&T version. It's very similar to the Sprint version and shares many software features with the international version, so instead of reiterating everything from those reviews, we're going to try to cover a few more things that you might not have heard about already and of course we'll give you a different perspective.  What's more, AT&T sent us the "pebble blue" version of their Galaxy S III, so if you're sick of the white version you're in for a treat. Read on for our full review of the ...

    Well, there had to be one that spoiled all the fun! Verizon is the sole carrier that offers Samsung Galaxy S III devices with boot loaders locked down. Sure they will have a "Developer Edition" phone but its announcement should have gone live before people started pre-ordering and purchasing the "regular" (locked) device. However, the community is working hard on trying to bypass the boot loader lock on the Verizon Galaxy S III. After just recently obtaining root, devs are working on what they call a Kexec hard boot bypass of the boot loader ("a method of booting kernels through recovery ...
