An eager, eagle-eyed XDA member spotted a Google ad while searching for "xperia ion" that may be showing AT&T's hand concerning the release date of said device. One of a few ads that appear when searching for the device states that the Xperia Ion is "Coming Exclusively to AT&T in June." Well, that narrows it down a bit!
The ad doesn't give a specific date, but it does narrow down the date range significantly. 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.
Okay, I know what you're thinking: isn't the Sprint GNex coming out on April 15th? Well... maybe. Actually, we're not sure now - according to a new document obtained by The Verge, it could actually be coming out exactly one week later, on April 22.
Despite the fact that the earlier leak came from a highly trusted source, this image appears to be legit, as all of the other dates are spot-on. Read More
Many AT&T customers have been chomping at the bit waiting for any word on when the upcoming HTC One X could hit the scene, and thanks to Best Buy, we may finally have an idea as to when that may be.

Going on a tip received from within Sprint's Product Development division, S4GRU, a site pretty well connected with Sprint's insiders, has reported that the third largest wireless network in the US is aiming to get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on shelves beginning April 15th.
The mid-April date has been rumored for some time now, as it coincides with the end of Sprint's Data Storm contest, and several WiMax device promotions which end on or around April 14th. Read More
It's always strange to see a company directly comment on rumors about its own products, but Samsung doesn't seem to take issue with it, as a statement they made to The Verge late last night confirms.
The latest speculation Samsung has cracked down on has been in regard to the Galaxy S III, stemming from a ZDNet Korea article that indicated the device would be unveiled next month. Here's the rough Google translation of the original tweet from Samsung's Korean arm regarding the issue:
[Please note] Some known through press releases Galaxy S3 4 월 stand is not true.
The Ice Cream Sandwich-packing Galaxy Tab 2 it may not be, but the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Verizon unveiled at CES last month still isn’t to be dismissed out of the gate – the now-official tablet will be arriving in stores on March 1st, complete with:
- 7.7 inch, 1280×800 Super AMOLED Plus display
- 1.4 GHz Dual-Core processor
- Android 3.2 with Touchwiz
- 16 GB storage
- 3 MP rear camera with LED flash
- 2 MP front-facing camera
- 7.9 mm thickness
- SD card slot
Sure, Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) is a tad outdated, but still, it would be hard to resist the largest Super AMOLED Plus display to date, right? Read More

Update 1/26/12: The MAXX is now live on VZW (thanks, Vinoth):
If you were following along with us and the action of CES, then you undoubtedly caught the announcement of the Droid RAZR MAXX, an 8.99 mm thin beast packing a 3,300 mAh battery that will likely outlast you in terms of needing to recharge. While it is nearly 2 mm thicker than the original Droid RAZR, it is still incredibly thin for how long the battery lasts. Read More
Late yesterday, we got a chance to spend some time with the Motorola DROID 4 over at the Verizon booth here at CES, and we have to say - It sure seems like Motorola has done it again. The DROID 4 will likely once again set the bar for QWERTY slider phones, and thanks to the addition of 4G LTE and a snappy TI OMAP 4430 dual-core processor (the same one found in the DROID RAZR), it's also going to be the fastest DROID yet.
