If you're one of the lucky few with a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there's an update headed your way. It's based on Android 4.1.2, just like the last one was, but it adds one notable new feature: LTE. Yes, the tablet's latent LTE radio has been enabled with this update.

The new version of the software is starting to hit devices today, but mashing the update button won't help. It's going to be arriving in waves until all tablets have gotten the notification around July 19th.

AT&T is rolling 4G LTE out to new markets today, and it's a big, big list. There are nearly three dozen new locations and 17 expansions. This puts AT&T at 326 LTE total markets. If you've got an LTE device on Ma Bell, you will see the super-fast network in the cities listed below.

If you've been clinging steadfastly to one of the tiny number of iDEN Android phones ever produced, you better have backup plan. Sprint shut off the old Nextel iDEN network yesterday (June 30th) just like it said it would. That juicy Nextel spectrum will be worth much more to Sprint as the backbone of its ever-expanding LTE network. Sprint is still happy to take you money, but only if you use the CDMA/LTE network.

If you haven't heard of Aio Wireless, here's the skinny: it's a new AT&T prepaid carrier (think of it as an MVNO), and it actually offers some pretty enticing features. Initially, we expected that Aio wouldn't offer LTE service since that would be reserved for a "premium" AT&T experience, but it looks like that plan has been changed – Aio just announced that it is activating LTE coverage for its current userbase (which is currently limited to a few areas in Texas and Florida).

Samsung-Galaxy-S3

Verizon pushed out an update at the end of May to add a number of enhancements to the Galaxy S III. However, after users flooded the Verizon forums with reports of broken LTE, Big Red pulled the update. A slightly tweaked version is about to roll out with a few more features, and presumably no LTE issues.

The update listing doesn't make mention of the data fix, but that's understandable. It should be noted that this update's changelog is a bit different than the last one.

Sony's current flagship might not have the same stellar specs as the competition, but the Xperia Z has a few tricks up its sleeve. This device is slim, water and dust-resistant, and heading to T-Mobile USA later this summer.

This is the standard Xperia Z, not the slightly watered down ZL that launched a while back. This device has a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p screen, and LTE (if you live in one of T-Mobile's few LTE markets).

Samsung-Icon

Samsung is developing a Galaxy S4 with support for LTE-Advanced, which is able to reach nearly twice the speed of normal 4G. The phone may be sold in South Korea as early as this month, but given the lack of necessary infrastructure, it may never see release in America. Or anywhere else, for that matter. Nevertheless, Samsung's phone will still be the first LTE-advanced smartphone to ship anywhere in the world.

AT&T must be feeling more confident in its LTE network because the carrier is going to allow the unwashed masses of prepaid customers to access it very soon. Beginning on June 21st, new and existing GoPhone users will be able to connect to 4G LTE service with compatible devices.

AT&T's GoPhone service comes in a few tiers, all a bit cheaper than the regular plans. These are your options:

  • $60 a month for 2 GB of data, unlimited nationwide calling, and unlimited messaging — now double the data at a lower monthly price.

galaxy-note-8-0

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has won some ardent fans since its release, but AT&T just announced a new variant for those who want a little LTE with their S Pen. AT&T even put together a handy video showing off some of the Note 8.0's features.

This is the same Note 8.0 we've seen before, but with the LTE radio and (presumably) some AT&T apps built-in. The Note 8.0 runs Android 4.1, has a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos chip, 4,600mAh battery, 16GB of storage (with microSD card slot), and a 1280x800 LCD screen.
