After a relatively dreary news day, TmoNews breathed life into the Android world with an exciting leak many of us have been anticipating for quite some time: the release date of the T-Mobile Galaxy S III.

T-Mobile's editions of the device - which are among the few potential challengers to HTC's superb One X - will begin sale on (drum roll please) June 20th. There'll reportedly be two colors - metallic blue and ceramic white - as well as two storage capacities: 16GB and 32GB.

HTC-One-S-Final

If you want the best phone that T-Mobile has to offer, then you undoubtedly want the HTC One S (our review). And if you want the HTC One S, then you probably want to get it while spending as little money as possible. Good news! If you pick the beasty up from Wirefly over the weekend and use the coupon code HTCONES25, then you'll get it for $125, which is a damn good price for this device (yes, I made a rhyme; no, I didn't do it on purpose).

In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, it seems that at least one customer ordering an HTC Amaze 4G from T-Mobile.com has been alerted that shipments of the device have been delayed "due to an unforeseen issue with receiving the product from the manufacturer." It looks like T-Mobile is sending out emails to customers informing them that  they have no "estimate as to when the product will be available," and suggesting that customers explore other options in the meantime.

You know what's ridiculous about mobile hotspot plans? In many instances, you have to bundle those into your main package, which means you're stuck paying for it throughout the duration of your agreement regardless of whether you use it or not. T-Mobile doesn't think that's fair, so today it has announced four new levels of no contract mobile broadband plans for tablets, hotspots, and laptop dongles, starting with a 300MB 1-week pass for $15 and going up from there.

Update: The ICS update should be rolling out to the Amaze 4G now. Head to the Settings -> About menu to check for it.

Sensation 4G

Earlier this month, T-Mobile updated the support documents for the Sensation 4G to let users know that the ICS update would be available "very soon." Now, we have an exact date for that very soon: May 16th.

Beginning May 16, an optional update will be available for the Sensation 4G to update to the latest operating system, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

This is the sort of quasi-rumor (it's fairly detailed and comes from the Wall Street Journal, so we're inclined to trust it) that makes me happy to be an Android fan.

According to the WSJ, Google is in cahoots with up to five device manufacturers to provide early access to the next iteration of the Android OS (Jelly Bean, we assume) so it can have an entire "portfolio" of Nexus devices ready by Thanksgiving - that's late November for those without turkey day.
