T-Mobile stating that their version of the HTC One S will be available in stores and online starting April 25th for just $199. We've been patiently waiting since we first spotted the device at MWC, and loved it in our full reviews. This phone will be one of, if not THE device to get on T-Mobile this summer.
HTC One S is headed to T-Mobile and will be one awesome smartphone for this summer. Sadly they've been completely quite regarding any official launch date of the new flagship phone. While we still wait for T-Mobile to confirm a date we are now starting to see dummy units arriving in T-Mobile stores, along with advertisements. April 25th could still be the day.
HTC One S, and while the carrier has yet to officially set a date for the svelte Android 4.0 smartphone, it looks like it's getting pretty close. After rumors of a late April launch, T-Mobile has sent out press invitations to a launch party on April 18th, precisely one week from today. That would certainly seem to imply that they're ready to start up a marketing campaign, if nothing else. There's no verification on the actual launch date, but sometime the following week seems likely. The last we heard, T-Mobile's internal systems pegged the phone for release on April 25th, the Wednesday following the launch event. With press info sent out, it seems to be a done deal, so start saving your pennies. There's been no official word on a price either, but given their current lineup, I'd bet on $249 with a two-year contract. T-Mobile's still using HSPA+ technology for its network, so the the American version of the phone should be almost identical to its European counterpart, which we reviewed last week. And by the way T-Mobile users, if you've been waiting for a next-generation phone with a subsidy, this is it. Never mind the slim aluminum chassis or the 8 megapixel camera. Never mind the Snapdragon S4 processor, which (at least in some tests) beats the Tegra 3 quad-core with a stick. Never mind the 4.3-inch display. No, the real draw is Ice Cream Sandwich, and the One S will be HTC's first US phone to get the updated software at launch, along with Sense 4.0. It's about time. Also, attendees of the launch party will be serenaded by "Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.", which is apparently a pop band and not the unborn progeny of a NASCAR driver. You live and learn.

we uncovered some teaser videos showing that Angry Birds Space is coming March 22nd. The second teaser video wasn't revealed until just recently and hints that it may launch with the Galaxy Note's next update. Now teaser #3 has confirmed the official announcement will be March 8th -- and probably just in time for that iPad 3 launch.
Galaxy Ace, and with the Galaxy M Style they are promising it will be "reasonably priced" while still packing a 4" Super AMOLED display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. More details and pictures after the break.
Meizu MX finally launched today in China and Hong Kong to great fanfare. Pre orders have been offered and strongly encouraged since December 15th in an effort to quell the very large crowds that waited to buy a M9 last year. Stores notified customers that had pre-ordered the phone, last month, to come in and pick them up. Crowds appeared outside the stores today nonetheless, though not as large in number as last year.
YouTube channel has now confirmed we will see Android 2.4 (or 4.0) Ice Cream Sandwich detailed at the CTIA Samsung Unpacked event next week. While this isn't a big surprise seeing it from the official channel makes it even more official. We will be seeing the next Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich next week, and we'll be there live to bring you all the details.
HTC Amaze 4G and Galaxy S II, both set to launch on October 12th and now T-Mobile is sending out invites for everyone to check them out and celebrate with T-Mobile. Just in time to fight the new iPhone 4S that T-Mobile won't be getting, I'd choose the Galaxy S II either way so I'm not too worried.
SE Nozomi first leaked back a few weeks ago and even though it probably wont have a dual-core processor the rest of the hardware specs sure look impressive.
