    Samsung's Conquer 4G on Sprint WiMAX isn't even out yet, but a recently-leaked Sprint document shows that the smartphone's already scheduled to receive a software update, followed shortly thereafter by an update for the HTC EVO 3D. The Conquer is scheduled to launch on August 21. That very day, according to this information, Sprint will be sending out an OTA update designed solely to patch a potential security vulnerability with Qualcomm's eXtensible Diagnostic Monitor software. The EVO 3D's update looks a little more substantial, containing a host of device-specific bugfixes. Post-update, ...

    Sprint has just announced that one of their best 4G Smartphones has just gotten more affordable. The Google Nexus S 4G is now selling for $29.99 after a new two-year contract, which is a dramatic price drop from the launch fee of $200 over the same conditions. Now, to top that off, you could simply choose to save yourself those $30 and get the same Nexus S 4G at either Best Buy or Amazon for free after you sign the Sprint contract. Rumors have Google already preparing to bring forth a new generation Smartphone that brings the full Android experience. The name is hinted to be the Google ...

    From the moment Sprint announced the Samsung Conquer 4G, we knew it would be a budget-priced smartphone. The carrier said that when it launched the phone, on August 21, you'd be able to pick it up for just $100 on-contract. As we approach that date, some even better deals are popping-up, and Radio Shack just set the bar at a new low, giving away the Conquer 4G for a mere $20 when you commit to two years of Sprint service. Granted, the Conquer's hardware is far from state-of-the art, with a single-core 1GHz Snapdragon and a 3.5-inch HVGA screen. That's still beefier than some of the other ...

    We got our first look at the Samsung SPH-D600 back at the end of April. Later on, after seeing a leaked Sprint inventory sheet, we learned that the D600 would be launched on the carrier as the Samsung Conquer 4G. Most recently, we finally got a really good look at the smartphone when Samsung put Conquer 4G info up on its website a little early. Now the handset's launch is finally officially on, with Sprint announcing that the Conquer 4G will be available on August 21 for about $100. Interestingly, when we first had that leaked pic of the D600 to check out, the information we had on the ...

    Sprint 4G service, WiMAX, is offered by means of a partnership with Clearwire, of which Sprint owns a majority stake. Now Clearwire is gearing-up for a big change to its services, announcing today that it will start providing LTE Advanced-ready communications with network links that have demonstrated the capacity for 120Mbps speeds. How will this new direction affect current Sprint customers? Sprint has already aligned itself with LightSquared for LTE data, announcing plans to work together to build up an LTE network over the next few years. We had assumed that it would maintain separate ...

    In this video we review the software of the new HTC EVO 3D for Sprint. The EVO 3D has some of the best software available for any Android smartphone available. Running Android Gingerbread along with the latest version of HTC Sense 3.0 delivers an awesome user experience that any smartphone connoisseur will enjoy. While the EVO 3D does include a little bit of proprietary software the majority of it is quite useful. The best apps included are Media Share, Mirror, Reader, Sprint Hotspot, Qik, Transfer, and Watch. Some other apps that some users may find appealing most would consider them ...

    It looks like smartphone fans in the US will soon be able to pick up Samsung's popular Galaxy S2 from one of their local carriers, joining the international community that has already had a chance to try out the high-powered handset. After Samsung's J.K. Shin broke the news that the smartphone was expected to come to the US in August, we've been catching a few glimpses of what might be some of these handsets, including the purported AT&T model with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Today we've got a little more information on those US-bound GS2s, as well as some about a new GS2 model. With the ...

    Over at Sprint, the times, they are a-changin'. We've already seen a leaked roadmap revealing some upcoming smartphones for the carrier; now we can see which are nearing the end of their time with us, thanks to another leak, this time of the carrier's end-of-life schedule for the next few months. According to these EOL dates (which could always end up shifting around, especially the further-off ones), Sprint's clearing some serious BlackBerry house, dropping the Style 9670 in just a few weeks, followed by the Bold 9650 and Curve 3G in September. With new BlackBerry models on the way, ...

    It seems like Gingerbread has been just on the tip of Samsung's tongue for the past few months when it comes to the Epic 4G. We saw an early leak, and then heard that the official update could be going out OTA sometime in July. When Sprint updated the smartphone's page on its site to show that it was shipping with Gingerbread already installed, it looked like the update might actually be upon us. Unfortunately, that turned out to be a false alarm, but we've still been holding the belief that the update would land very soon. We're still waiting for that official release, but in the meantime ...

    We've been teased with the promise of a soon-to-arrive update for Samsung's Nexus S 4G on Sprint WiMAX for a few weeks now. It was supposed to land back on July 11, and then we heard July 18 was a possibility. Those both fizzled, but now Sprint's put out official word that the update will finally get here on Monday, July 25. This update, system software GRJ90, will supposedly mark the arrival of Android 2.3.5. It will also activate the secure processing component of the NS4G's NFC transponder, setting it up to be ready for Google Wallet. We knew that update would bring a new 4G settings ...

    In this video we unbox the new HTC EVO 3D operating on Sprint's 4G WiMax network. As one of the first Android powered smartphones to incorporate a glasses-free 3D display the EVO 3D is not just relying on this new technology but has also integrated some other pretty powerful hardware to give it that extra oomph. Included with the EVO 3D is a USB wall charger, a microUSB charging/sync cable, and a get started guide. Stay tuned for the hardware and software reviews coming up next. The HTC EVO 3D is available from Sprint for a subsidized price of $199.99 after a qualifying two year agreement.

    As one of the first Android 3D smartphones available in the States, the EVO 3D, is not only relying on this key feature to appeal to the masses. The HTC EVO 3D also has some other appealing hardware that any techno-naught will appreciate. The biggest selling feature is of course the no glasses 3D screen and even with the 3D turned off the screen is still impressive. The 4.3 inch qHD LCD is behind a glass capacitive multi-touch digitizer. Giving life to the EVO 3D is a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor that HTC has combined with a capacious 1GB of RAM. The internal ROM is 4GB and the ...

    Oh, Sprint, how you confound us! Yesterday we looked at the carrier's page for the Samsung Epic 4G, noting that it had been updated to now show the phone as shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed. That sounded promising, since we were expecting the OTA update to arrive later this month, but apparently it's all a big misunderstanding. Android Central reached out to Sprint for clarification, and the carrier responded that the Epic 4G is still shipping with Froyo. So what gives, Sprint? If you go to the Epic 4G's page today, it still shows Android 2.3; if this was a typo, and the ...
