Still, it is a first look at a new device, so that counts for something.

What you're looking at there is a Samsung device codenamed Jasper. It's a mid-ranger with specs to match:

  • 1.5GHz Dual-core Snapdragon MSM8960
  • 800x400 display (ewww)
  • LTE
  • ICS

[Updated] AT&T Jumps On The Shared Data Bandwagon, Confuses All Its Customers In The Process

"AT&T gives customers more choice with new shared wireless data plans." That's the headline of the press release that AT&T sent out about its new shared data packages. Keywords: more choice. That's a polite way of saying "we're aiming to confuse the crap out of you." Unlike Verizon's shared data packages, which are about as simple to understand as they come, AT&T did what AT&T does best: took the simple and made it far more complex than in should be.

T-Mobile Galaxy S Blaze 4G Will Be Updated To ICS Some Time In The Future, No, It's Not Today's Update

We can easily forget some of the mid-range to lower-end devices in the flurry of news we have to keep up with. Thankfully, though, T-Mobile and Samsung haven't. At least not in the Blaze 4G's case. This device is currently in the process of receiving an update to Android 2.3.6. It was already running Gingerbread, so this isn't a huge update. What is big, however, is T-Mobile has announced that some time in the future, the device will see Ice Cream Sandwich.
