HTC_Evo_4G_LTE_Jet_white_PDVB

Sprint hasn't been the most secretive about the white version of its EVO 4G LTE, as we've already seen. More than once. Now, though, The Now Network has officially taken the wraps off this white handset, and guess what? It's still two-toned. And To add insult to injury, the kickstand isn't red anymore.

I was really hoping for a sexy all-white device with that brilliant red kickstand, but it's clear that HTC and Sprint had a different vision: boring.

Motorola Photon GHLks

It's been close to a year since Sprint last showed the Motorola Photon 4G some update love, but after seemingly forgetting about this once flagship device, The Now Network is now pushing an OTA update to the device that brings a handful of useful updates and features to the device:

  • More easily import contacts from SD card.
  • Improved music playback, both streaming from Amazon Cloud or Internet Radio services and music saved to the phone - minimizes occasional skips or -repeats
  • Enhancements for WiFi hotspot in GSM/UMTS mode and adding new WiFi connections.

Ding-ding-ding! EVO 4G LTE owners, the update you've been waiting for is ready. v1.22.651.3 of the software is rolling out starting today, July 11th, and according to Sprint fixes a whole array of bugs. The most important aspect of the update has to do with Google Wallet which has been broken since pretty much day one of the release. Other changes include improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity, playback of sideloaded videos, the crashing gallery app, calendar reminders, random power cycling, and more.

The Android development community couldn't be more on fire today now that Android 4.1 has been fully open sourced. While the Jelly Bean flavored CyanogenMod 10 is not just here just yet (though work has already begun), the CyanogenMod team released a fantastic treat for new Galaxy S III owners on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile - official nightlies, available for downloading and flashing right now:

  • Galaxy S III for AT&T (d2att)
  • Galaxy S III for Sprint (d2spr)
  • Galaxy S III for T-Mobile (d2tmo)

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

OK, OK, that's actually Linus Torvalds expressing his feelings about NVIDIA, but there's no better way to articulate the continued frustration with the complete lack of Sprint Galaxy Nexus support in AOSP. Verizon is [almost] there. Sprint, however, is not. Try finding it (hint: its codename is toroplus) - specifically, the CDMA/LTE binaries.

If you still have doubts about the above notion so eloquently conveyed by Linus' gesture, Jean-Baptiste Queru's comment confirms:

As far as toroplus, the situation is unchanged: there are no plans to support it as a target device for custom AOSP builds.

The Galaxy S III on Sprint has been seeing a considerable amount of update action in the short time since it's been released. Back on June 29th, the device saw a security update and now, according to Sprint's community website, a second "Google security updates" OTA software patch is headed to the device.

The carrier hasn't offered any details on what the update fixes, beyond that today's update is Google-related, while the previous update is just a generic security update.

It hasn't been too long since the Galaxy S III finally started landing on US carriers, but the price drops and deals have already started. If you're on Sprint, or want to be, you can get $50 knocked off the cost of a Galaxy S III from Amazon Wireless. The device is currently available via the site for $149.99 for new and upgrading customers.

A few days ago, Radioshack started this trend by being the first retailer to drop the phone to $149.99, and now it looks like others finally followed.

Remember late last month when we caught what was alleged to be a white EVO 4G LTE on an inventory sheet and subsequently got a glimpse of the rumored device thanks to a suspect Sprint banner? Well, it looks like we can expect the snow-colored device to land at Sprint July 15th, according to TechnoBuffalo's "trusted source."

A white EVO LTE will probably come as no surprise to current Sprint subscribers or followers of the EVO line.

With Samsung's Galaxy SIII (finally) hitting Sprint a few days ago, those looking to snatch a unit already have a few deals to take advantage of. The best of them (so far) is from RadioShack Wireless. RadioShack is currently offering the Galaxy SIII (in its Pebble Blue, 16GB form) for just $149.99 for those opening a new account or upgrading their current device.

Both Amazon and Wirefly are offering the same device for the slightly higher (yet still discounted) price of $179.99 for new accounts and upgrades.

Sprint customers with the recently-released Samsung Galaxy S III are in store for a small, tiny, itty-bitty little OTA update that started rolling out today. The update brings but one thing:

  • Security Updates

Sure, it's not a huge update in terms of usefulness, but it marks one milestone for the GSIII: its first OTA update. Aww, they grow up so fast.

To pull the update manually, head into Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates > Update Android.
