In addition to the absolute mania of incoming announcements we saw from Google today, there was one interesting carrier-related development for the Nexus line – T-Mobile, the US' fourth largest carrier, announced that it would be carrying Google's LG-built Nexus 4 and ASUS-built 3G Nexus 7 as a "premier launch partner" starting this November. In fact, users can already sign up for more info at T-Mobile's website.

GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Today's the day, T-Mobile folks: the Galaxy Note II can be yours for the low, low price of... $370. OK, so maybe that's not low at all. If you want to get it cheaper, Wirefly's your best bet. Still, if you prefer to walk in to a T-Mo store and walk out with a brand new behemoth in your pocket, you can do that - you'll just have to pay extra.

Samsung's latest flagship – the Galaxy Note II – which we've so far only seen on video and in international markets, is finally (officially) headed to States-side carriers, with AT&T beginning pre-orders and Sprint and T-Mobile officially launching the device today.

In addition to official carrier launches (and the opening of pre-orders), though, Wirefly.com has opened up orders for the Galaxy Note II's T-Mobile variant, listing the flagship phablet at $279.99 for new or upgrading contracts.

Interested in a mid-range LG device on T-Mobile? Wait, you don't have to answer that. Regardless of how you feel about it, the LG Optimus L9 is coming. While T-Mo originally announced the device earlier this month, the carrier has just come clean with its actual availability: October 31st. Spooky.

For those who may not be familiar with this device, it's nothing to write home about:

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

The L9 will be available online and in-stores and will set you back $80, but that's only after a $50 mail-in-rebate.

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

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.

1

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.
