Last Updated: November 23rd, 2011

While Samsung may have promptly released the kernel source code for Sprint's Epic 4G Touch on release day, it has gone one step further with AT&T's variant and already uploaded the code to its Open Source Release Center. AT&T just announced the launch date of October 2nd this morning, so this makes the code available nearly two weeks before the phone.

We've basically known all there is to know about the US versions of the Galaxy S II for a while now, just short of the release date and price for AT&T and T-Mobile.

You can scratch Ma Bell off that list now, though, as it just announced via Twitter that the long-awaited GSII will be available on October 2nd for $200 with a two-year agreement. I'm sure all AT&T customer have the spec list embedded deep into their memory banks in anticipation of this beauty, but just in case you've forgotten, here they are again:

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter capable of 1080p video
  • 2MP ffc
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD slot
  • HDMI out
  • NFC
  • HSPA+
  • Android 2.3.4

Now that you have all the deets, who's going to be standing outside of that big blue storefront on October 2nd waiting for the doors to open and grab one of these?

It looks like AT&T is finally ready to take the wraps off its long-awaited LTE network in an attempt to compete with Verizon's powerhouse 4G LTE, which now covers over half of the country. Ma Bell's speed-demon network will start its plan for world conquest in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, TX; Atlanta, GA; and Chicago, IL on September 18th, with plans of introducing another 10 LTE markets before the end of 2011.

We were all left with a bad taste in our mouths after hearing AT&T's pricing for the recently announced HTC Jetstream, but if you're looking for a  solid Honeycomb tablet with always-connected mobile access then check out Ma Bell's latest offering: the Acer Iconia Tab A501.

Under the hood, it's the exact same device as the A500, with the inclusion of an HSPA+ radio. The nuts and bolts of it are:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP and 2MP cameras
  • SD card, microUSB, and microHDMI ports
  • Android 3.2

The real sweet spot for this tablet, though, is the pricing.

If you've been holding out on getting a bundle of goodies to go with your Motorola ATRIX, there is good news. AT&T has just dropped the price of the ATRIX's Entertainment Centre/Webtop Access bundle down to a cool $99. That's down from the original $190 price tag, and still lower than Amazon's offering of $140.

The kit includes an HD Multimedia Dock, cordless mouse, and Universal Bluetooth keyboard. If you want to get your hands on this hot deal, head over to the product page at AT&T.

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, also known as the Playstation Phone, will be hitting AT&T's HSPA+ network on September 18th for a mere $50, finally allowing gamers rocking Ma Bell to let go some of that envy towards VZW. This portable gaming/smartphone hybrid sports a 4-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.3 out of the box; what really makes this device unique, though, it its slide-out Playstation gamepad and exclusive gaming content.

While Verizon just announced the most powerful device to hit its 4G LTE network to date, AT&T decided to keep the announcements a bit more budget-friendly by dropping the news about the Huawei Impulse 4G, a phone geared towards feature phone users that are looking to jump into the smartphone ring.

The Impulse is a mid-ranger with a 3.8 inch touchscreen, a 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.2 all running on AT&T's HSPA+ network -- not a powerhouse by any means, but you can't really expect much more from a $30 device.

Sprint

Last week, the US Department of Justice filed an antitrust complaint against the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile deal. Naturally, Sprint was quite pleased by this, as it has been fighting this deal tooth-and-nail since its initial announcement. Now, The Now Network has filed its own suit to block the deal.

Sprint's lawsuit is focused on how this merger would affect both competition and the consumer market, citing that it would:

  • Harm retail consumers and corporate customers by causing higher prices and less innovation.

A couple of weeks ago the first photos of the HTC Holiday emerged, displaying its impressive hardware innards for the world to see. Now, BGR has landed some new photos of this up-and-coming device, which includes speed tests that show what AT&T's LTE network is capable of. Clocking an astounding 29Mbps, AT&T is looking to put the hurt on VZW's LTE network once it becomes more widespread.

Yes, a cotton swab is now an acceptable standard of measurement.

Adding to the pile of news surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S II this week, we have some new info -- some good and some bad . The good news is that the AT&T and T-Mobile variants will both be equipped with NFC. Engadget (along with François Simond) took a peak earlier today into the system files of AT&T's S II variant and found conclusive evidence of NFC presence, including a pre-installed app, but whether mobile payments will be one of the SII's capabilities remains to be seen.
