When a new device comes out or gets a new version of Android, one thing developers want need to ensure ROMs run as smoothly and efficiently as possible is the kernel source code. Samsung has been quite good about releasing source code for new and updated devices, and it has now made available the Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source for the AT&T Galaxy S II.

While that may not mean much for the bulk of the crowd in terms of actual usefulness, it's definitely good news for the development community.

Rumors have been floating around today that the HTC One X on AT&T is going to drop to $99 on July 29th. We're inclined to believe these rumors, as RadioShack just announced that, you guessed it, the One X will lose $100 off its price tag beginning on Sunday, July 29th, making it $99. This all but confirms that AT&T will drop the price in its stores and online, as well.

Listen up LG Nitro owners: we have some important news for you.

Now that I have the attention of all seven of you who bought this phone, here it is: Ice Cream Sandwich is coming to your handset on July 31st. Sing, rejoice, dance, and be merry.

The update will bring LG's Optimus UI 3.0 along for the ride, as well as many other new and improved features:

  • New lock screen actions let you conveniently jump directly to a specific application without unlocking the homescreen.

AT&T just flipped the LTE switch to 'on' for four lucky markets in parts of Florida and Massachusetts, including:

  • West Palm Beach, FL
  • Fort Lauderdale, FL
  • Miami, FL
  • Worcester Area, MA

It also expanded in a few other markets:

  • Baltimore, MD
  • Boston, MA
  • Washington D.C. (which expanded the network into Northern VA)

While AT&T's still small-ish LTE network pales in comparison to Verizon's nearly-nationwide 4G blanket, it seems to be rolling out new markets on a consistent basis, making sure to cover all the major metropolitan areas.

Long after releasing the kernel source for other variants of the One X (as well as the US One S and EVO LTE), HTC has finally released the source for AT&T's variant.

Users may recall that the AT&T-connected One X was left out of the initial kernel source code drop just after HTC delivered a somewhat disheartening statement to the Verge indicating that the device was not eligible to participate in the Taiwanese manufacturer's bootloader unlocking program due to unspecified "restrictions," which many users read as "AT&T says no."

While it appears that the AT&T-connected One X still isn't compatible with HTC's bootloader unlocking tool (and may never be), the release of its kernel source code is still positive news for tweakers, tinkerers, and developers alike.

Update: If you have some sort of unholy vendetta against Best Buy and refuse to order anything from there, you'll be glad to know that Amazon now has the same deal. Both white and black versions of the Atrix HD are now $50 for new and existing customers.

Well, would you look at that. The new Motorola Atrix HD "4G" officially went on sale just today, and Best Buy has already chopped off fully half of its reasonable asking price.

"AT&T gives customers more choice with new shared wireless data plans." That's the headline of the press release that AT&T sent out about its new shared data packages. Keywords: more choice. That's a polite way of saying "we're aiming to confuse the crap out of you." Unlike Verizon's shared data packages, which are about as simple to understand as they come, AT&T did what AT&T does best: took the simple and made it far more complex than in should be.

CyanogenMod 10 is still cooking, and heck, CM9 isn't even fully baked for all devices yet. That hasn't stopped Steve Kondik, aka the guy who puts the Cyanogen in CyanogenMod, from posting preview builds of CM10 over on XDA for the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S III variants. Plus, a third preview build being posted for the Sprint version by another developer. Keep in mind, of course, that "preview build" translates into "absolutely nothing is guaranteed to work." It is exciting, nonetheless.

After silently activating in most of its launch markets this weekend, Sprint's 4G LTE network has finally been officially announced. A promotional launch video released today explains Sprint's 4G LTE rollout and Network Vision, and encourages viewers to comment on the burgeoning LTE network's performance.

To that end, things aren't looking great for Sprint's new 4G network – at launch, it is promising just 6-8 Megabits per second download speed (burstable to 25Mbps) and 2-3 Megabits per second upload.

Well, so much for the idea of a patriotic-themed launch party for this device. Still, if you're on AT&T and you're excited about getting your hands on the exclusive red version of Samsung's latest and greatest flagship phone, your wait is about to be at an end. In a few short days, starting on July 15th, AT&T will be offering the device en rouge via pre-order on its site.
