[Updated: Changelog/RUU] AT&T HTC One X Getting OTA v2.20.502.7 (Android 4.0.4) Eliminating Menu Bar, Giving Users Remapping Options

There's no question – HTC's latest flagship, the One X, is a fantastic device. One major gripe that users have had from day one however (besides broken multitasking) was the pesky menu bar that served to replace its missing capacitive counterpart. Any time users opened an app that wasn't optimized with the Ice Cream Sandwich-style "action overflow" button, the large black bar would appear.

All that is changing for owners of the AT&T-connected One X today though, as a 270MB OTA update (carrying software build 2.20.502.7 and bringing the handset up to ICS 4.0.4) eliminates the bar, instead giving users options to remap the device's multitask key to follow one of three sets of behavior: Always open recent apps, press for menu and long press for recent apps, or press for recent apps and long press for menu.

MetroPCS To Launch Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G, Still Comes With Gingerbread For $459

Today, MetroPCS announced yet another addition to its stable of prepaid Android smartphones. One of the pricier off-contract handsets, the device retails for $459. So, what do you get for a significant portion of your rent for the month? Well, for a Metro PCS phone, it's actually a pretty decent spec list:

  • 4.3" Super AMOLED display
  • 1Ghz processor
  • 8MP rear-facing camera w/ flash
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • LTE
  • 32GB of "external memory"*

*Note: It's a little unclear what they mean by "32GB of external memory." The device's spec page also lists a 16GB memory card, so it may be that the device has an SD card slot that supports up  to 32GB, but only includes a 16GB card.
