The famous red-and-black accents and the kickstand seem to live on in the HTC EVO One (or so we think it'll be called), according to these photos of Sprint's upcoming One X variant. The device, which looks to be a test unit, was obtained by one of DroidLife's readers, who then forwarded the snaps on for all of us to enjoy. You are enjoying them, aren't you?

Now, don't be too hasty and judgmental, take your time to examine these.

As the old saying goes, "When it rains, it leaks ICS builds for a whole lot of Samsung devices on AT&T's network in a short time frame." At least that's how I learned the saying as a boy. While it didn't make sense then, now that Android 4.0.3 has been leaked for the Galaxy Note, rounding out the Samsung/AT&T trifecta of flagship devices, it all makes sense.

As with the previous leaks, also courtesy of RootzWiki, this build flashed its build.prop badge at the door to let us know it's the real deal:

ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/SGH-I717/SGH-I717:4.0.3/IML74K/144:user/release-keys

Indeed, it looks like Note users can now join the Samsung family at the dessert table.

Last week, JBQ from Google released full flashable images of the newly baked Android 4.0.4 (IMM76D) for a few devices - the GSM Galaxy Nexus i9250 yakju and the Nexus S i9020T (soju). The Nexus S release specifically wasn't compatible with the AT&T version (i9020A sojua), but an image for i9020A was promised at a later date. Additionally, builds for the Nexus S 4G on Sprint and other variants as well as the Verizion Galaxy Nexus were to follow.

So, envision this for moment: you're a farmer. You have some killer crops of corn reaching their peak, just waiting to be picked. Then, disaster strikes - aliens come down from... wherever aliens come from, to steal your precious corn. You're left with but one choice: kill 'em all.

That's basically the premise of the new game Farm Invasion USA from HandyGames, the same crew that brought us Guns'n'Glory, Aporkalypse, and more.

    Looks like Sprint's first LTE handset, the LG Viper, will be available for pre-order from Sprint beginning on April 12th for a reasonable $99 after $50 mail-in-rebate, and will be available in all channels "later this month."

    LG-X3

    The Viper was originally announced alongside the Galaxy Nexus earlier this year at CES as one of Sprint's premier LTE devices and is packing some reasonable specs for the price:

    • 4-Inch 480x800 display
    • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor
    • 1GB RAM
    • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front-facing camera
    • 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
    • NFC and Google Wallet
    • Android 2.3 (will likely be updated to Android 4.0)

    Last we heard, the Viper was said to be released on April 15th, but that seems unlikely with pre-orders beginning on April 12th.

    Three years ago, Amazon opened a new online store dedicated to changing the way users buy cell phones. That store has now evolved into a go-to place for anyone who wants to get a great deal on a phone, free two-day shipping, and the top-notch customer service that Amazon is known for. Today, that store loses its beta tag, and brings two new features to the service: best price guarantee and free premium apps for Android users.

    Mid-last month, AT&T announced that it would bringing LTE to 12 new markets in "April, May, and into early summer." It appears to be making good on those plans beginning now, as it's going to flip the switch in three new markets on April 8th:

    • Muncie, IN
    • Bloomington, IN
    • Bryan-College Station, TX

    This gives AT&T a total of 31 LTE markets now, putting it pretty far behind Verizon's "more than 200 cities."

    There's no word as to when it should roll out the rest of the promised markets, but it's nice to see it getting an early start delivering the goods.
