The HTC One X landed in Europe in early April and was released today on AT&T, and as such, earned the distinction of first of the next-gen hardware. But being first isn't always the best - on Thursday, Samsung revealed their new flagship, the Galaxy S III. Read More
Despite recent reports of data connectivity issues, it looks like owners of Sprint's Galaxy Nexus have a couple of things to be excited about as we head into the new week.
First off, the CyanogenMod team has begun cooking up CM9 Nightlies for the device, offering users a nightly dose of cutting-edge, ICS-powered code.
Additionally, the Sprint-connected Nexus is now privvy to its own builds of ClockworkMod's recovery solution – both touch and otherwise. Read More
Samsung Mobile, as part of what has certainly been an epic lead-up to a new flagship so far, released an official Unpacked 2012 companion app to Google's Play Store today, bringing some awesome functionality both to those lucky enough to attend the event and everyone else.
One of the most impressive features of the app is that it allows users to watch the event in real time. This means users can watch the unveiling of the "Next Galaxy" live no matter where they are. Read More
Confirming our suspicion that Sprint's variant of the Galaxy Nexus would be available on the 22nd, a pre-order page has gone live at Sprint.com, allowing customers to reserve Samsung's first Ice Cream Sandwich-powered device for just $199 with a two-year agreement.
What's more, the Now Network's pre-order page suggests that customers who buy early may just get their hands on a Galaxy Nexus sooner than expected:
Order online today, we’ll charge your card for your phone today and we’ll do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Sunday, April 22.
The folks over at Fusible have discovered that Samsung has filed a trademark with the US PTO for three new names: Galaxy Sire, Galaxy Perx, and Galaxy Lift. While we don't have any details yet, we do know that we're looking at phones and not tablets - the trademarks were filed under the "Mobile phones; Smartphones" category.
Given the names, I'd guess we're looking at carrier-branded versions of the same device. Read More
The CyanogenMod team has done it again, bringing their CM9 build for AT&T's variant of the Samsung Galaxy SII to nightly status, and releasing the build to the CyanogenMod mirror network just yesterday.
The build actually released just before news that a seemingly official (and fully TouchWiz-ed) build of ICS had leaked for AT&T's SII, so SII owners have a couple of great options to satisfy their Ice Cream Sandwich cravings. Read More
It looks like users of Samsung's Galaxy SII Skyrocket are getting a chance at some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness a little sooner than anticipated – earlier this evening, RootzWiki posted a leaked build of ICS for the Skyrocket, dated March 14th. From the build.prop, it would seem that this may be the official release build, but of course there's no way of being positive.

If you didn't quite make it to Daily Steals' awesome deal a couple of days ago and still want to get your hands on an unlocked Galaxy Nexus at a crazy discount, Negri Electronics has you covered.
The online electronics dealer is offering the 16GB unlocked Galaxy Nexus for just $459.99. It's worth noting though, that the units being sold by Negri have NTT Docomo branding (meaning a teeny tiny logo near the bottom of the backplate). Read More
If you've been eyeing Samsung's Galaxy Note but don't want to pay full price, 1SaleADay may be able to help. 1SaleADay has listed the Unlocked, 16GB variety of the Galaxy Note on eBay for just $549.99 (with free shipping). That's a cool $50 less than the last deal we saw on the Note.
For those that may not be familiar with Sammy's first ever "phablet," the Note, which promises "the best of a phone and a tablet," has some pretty sweet specs (including its luxuriously enormous display):
- 5.3" Super AMOLED display
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with ICS reportedly on the way in Q2)
- S Pen Stylus
- 16GB Internal Storage (with microSD slot)
- 8MP Rear camera / 2MP front-facing shooter
- 1GB RAM
- 1.4GHz dual-core processor
- 2500mAh Battery
