Well, you already know it's not Jelly Bean, but T-Mo is sending an OTA update to the Galaxy S III right now. It's a minor one, mostly dealing with some Touchwiz stuff you likely don't use, as well as a behind-the-scenes tweak to pinch and zoom. Woo.

Current Version - Android version 4.0.4/Software version T999UVLJ4

  • Version:
    • Android version 4.0.4/Software version T999UVLJ4
    • Approved 10/17/2012
  • Improvements:
    • Resolved Media Hub playback issues
    • Pinch & Zoom backend changes – No visible user  changes
  • Prerequisites
    • OTA and Samsung Kies update
    • T999UVLH2, T999UVLG1 or T999UVLEM
    • Device software is not rooted

The 12MB update is available via OTA right now, but if you'd rather use Kies for some weird reason, you'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Earlier this month, we saw a leaked image of the LG Optimus L9 for T-Mobile, and now Team Magenta has made the mid-range handset official. Availability details are still scant, with the press release stating it will hit shelves sometime "later this fall."

For those who may not remember this somewhat forgettable handset, here's a spec-refresher:

  • 4.5" qHD display with Gorilla Glass 2
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB storage
  • 2,150mAh battery 
  • Android 4.0

The L9 also features some LG proprietary software, like QuickMemo and "Cheese Shot" (which has to be one of the worst names of all time).

Hot on the heels of AT&T and Sprint announcing their respective variants of the powerhouse Optimus G, the @EVLeaks Twitter account has posted an image of the Optimus L9 with T-Mobile branding.

For those who may not be familiar with the L9, it's a mid-ranger that was announced back at the end of August:

  • 4.7" IPS display
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB storage
  • Android 4.0

Of course, we can't guarantee that the T-Mobile variant will house the same guts, but it's unlikely that they'll change it up too much.

Previously, we'd heard rumors and whispers that T-Mobile (by way of its parent company Deutsche Telekom) would be acquiring MetroPCS. Today, both companies' boards have approved the merger and, pending regulatory and MetroPCS shareholder approval, the deal should be completed by mid-2013. The two companies will have a combined subscriber base of about 42.5 million customers, which still leaves it in fourth place in the U.S. behind Sprint with 56 million and AT&T/Verizon who each have over 100 million users.

Orange and T-Mobile UK, the two companies forming the new 4G EE network in the UK, have launched three 4G capable Android phones today.

That means that if you're an Orange or T-Mobile customer, you can now buy the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE, HTC One XL, or Huawei Ascend P1 LTE on contract to ensure that you're ahead of the game before 4G goes live in the UK at the end of this month.

It looks like mobile device users in the UK can expect 4G services to begin rolling out a bit sooner than previously expected – six months sooner, to be specific.

The Wallstreet Journal reported Tuesday that the UK government has struck a deal with the UK's four largest mobile operators which will enable the auction of 4G mobile spectrum to begin at the end of 2012, with bidding beginning in early 2013.

In an attempt to show off the capabilities of its nationwide 4G network, T-Mobile is giving every Galaxy S III owner a free copy of The Avengers as a virtual preload.

New and existing users will be able to download the movie from the Samsung Media Hub, with T-Mobile encouraging customers to take advantage of their unlimited 4G data. Users with Samsung AllShare will be able to stream the movie, and any other movie downloaded from the media hub, to their TV.

We knew it was happening, but now things are official. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is coming to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. This is going to be a big deal, and not just because this phone is physically massive.

The centerpiece of the Note II is the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD panel at 1280x720. This screen uses Wacom inductive technology so you can make use of a pressure-sensitive S Pen, which docks neatly in the body of the phone when you're not using it.

Owners of T-Mobile's Huawei-made myTouch can begin anxiously tapping "software update" now – the carrier is rolling out a minor update to software build C85B839SP03. Among other things, this update fixes the myTouch device's "missing megapixel" problem, allowing the camera to "realize [its] full 5.0 Mega Pixel resolution."

The update also allows users to opt out of Carrier IQ, and brings a "compose" button to the Email app, and adds call-related bug fixes.

At the beginning of August, we heard about a Samsung device heading for T-Mobile that was then called the Galaxy S Blaze Q. The name later changed to Galaxy S Relay 4G, and now it's official.

1[2] 

T-Mobile just announced this QWERTY-packing handset for its HSPA+ 42 network, and it appears to be a fairly solid mid-range device:

  • 4" Super AMOLED display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • slide-out QWERTY
  • SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise)
  • Android 4.0

Neither pricing nor availability is available at this time, only that it will be available online and at T-Mobile retail locations "in the coming weeks."

Update: T-Mo just released official pricing and availability.
