HTC One S hits T-Mobile April 25th

HTC's new One series is getting a lot of attention as of late, and with good reason. Currently the new phones are available across Europe but we are still waiting for them to land here in the states. AT&T has the One X coming soon, and some new leaks have all but confirmed the HTC One S will be available from T-Mobile on April 25th.

AT&T HTC One X release date rumored for May 6th

HTC's new flagship smartphone the HTC One X is about to be launched worldwide starting next week. Being available in the UK and throughout parts of China. While we are still hopeful to hear more details regarding this impressive phone landing in the US. We already know a dual-core LTE version is headed to AT&T. Now new emails from Best Buy claim the phone has been delayed until May 6th.

HTC One S could head to T-Mobile April 22nd

Fair warning, T-Mobile customers: treat this one as rumor, because that's what it is. Now that that's out of the way, TmoNews has gotten a tip that HTC's One S will be headed to the American carrier on April 22nd. That conclusion comes from what looks like a pre-release web element, showing off the brand-new phone with an unmistakable "countdown" timer ending on the Monday in question. The phrase "sell the HTC One S on launch day" probably means that this picture was taken from an internal T-Mobile intranet, meant for retail employees or associates.

Samsung exec: Galaxy S III release could be moved to April

Amid more and more rumors and fake renders of the new Galaxy S III (yeesh, it's beginning to look like an Apple launch around here) there's some actual news straight from the horse's mouth. Maeli Business News reports that Kim Young-Ha, the president of Samsung's greater China operations, told conference call listeners that the company was considering an expedited April launch for the new flagship phone. The date has yet to be agrees upon by Samsung's top brass. This is going against the tide of most of the rumors pointing to a May announcement or release.

Official: Samsung Galaxy Note launches on AT&T February 19th

For those of you who salivated when AT&T announced that Samsung's gigantic Galaxy Note smartphone would make its way to America, your wait is nearly over. The wireless carrier announced today that it would launch the much-anticipated device on Sunday, February 19th. As expected, the phone will cost $299.99 with a two-year contract or extension - there's no word on how much the phone will cost without a commitment. Eager customers can pre-order the Galaxy Note starting on February 5th and get it delivered two days early. The Galaxy Note LTE will come in Carbon Blue and Ceramic White color options. The Galaxy Note has created quite a following since the original model was announced way back in October, at the IFA show in Berlin. The phone's outstanding feature is a 5.3-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED display, easily the largest and most high-resolution screen for any phone being sold today. In addition, it packs a Wacom digitizer and old-school stylus ("S-Pen") for pen-based drawing and input. Samsung has several customized applications to take advantage of the stylus, as well as the S-Pen SDK for developers who want their apps to integrate with the feature as well. If the Galaxy Note is well-received, the S-Pen may make its way to other future devices. The rest of the Galaxy Note is no slough: underneath that huge screen is a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage space and an 8MP camera. To power all that you get an admirably large 2500mAh battery. The Note runs Samsung's TouchWiz version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but an update to Ice Cream Sandwich is already in the works. The major difference between AT&T's version of the Note and those already released overseas is the new radio, which will take advantage of the carrier's LTE data network. Rumors of other US Galaxy Note variants, particularly the "Galaxy Journal" on Verizon, have yet to be confirmed. [timeline] [device id=1438]

Samsung says Galaxy Note is coming to America soon

Samsung's plus-sized Galaxy Note smartphone has proven to be a surprise hit, as the company announced today that they've shipped a whopping 1 million units worldwide. For an expensive and ostensibly niche phone, that's a gigantic figure, especially considering that it's only available in Europe, South Korea and a few other markets. US fans still have to import a Galaxy Note if they want to try out the 5.3-inch monster for themselves, but that may change soon enough: the company noted in its congratulatory announcement that it will be coming to the US in 2012.
