Samsung Galaxy S III Mini Coming To T-Mobile As The Galaxy Exhibit 4G... Again

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be the attitude that T-Mobile is taking with its domestic variations of budget-friendly Samsung smartphones. The Galaxy S III Mini (which has its own misnomer issues) is headed to T-Mobile as the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, according to UnwiredView. The only difference from the international version appears to be an admittedly snazzy grey and teal trim makeover.

If you'll recall, this is far from T-Mobile's first Exhibit.

PSA: Straight Talk And Net10 Sold Out Of AT&T SIM Cards Online – Don't Panic

We've been hearing for the past few days that users have been unable to get new AT&T-compatible SIM cards from Straight Talk and Net10 websites. The only option seems to be the T-Mobile SIM. This was causing quite a bit of consternation as the Nexus 4 is finally starting to ship again. The complete absence of AT&T SIMs from both sites led many to wonder if AT&T service was no longer being sold by these Tracfon-owned entities.

Sony Xperia Z Up For Pre-Order On Three UK From £34 A Month On Contract, Available On February 28th

Sony's waterproof and dustproof flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z, is available to pre-order in the UK today from Three, although you'll have to wait until it's released on February 28th to get your hands on it yourself.

We first saw the 5-inch, 1080p phone last month at CES, and found ourselves impressed by its minimalist, elegant design. Water resistance comes at a price though, so you can expect to pay at least £34 a month if you want to take the phone home on a contract.

T-Mobile Pushing A Couple Of Small OTA Updates To The Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III

Last week, we reported on an OTA update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II that brought a "Qualcomm fix," along with some general security enhancements and Vlingo S Voice improvements. It looks like that update was delayed shortly after it started rolling out, as Team Pink just updated its support docs with details of the update with a set rollout date of January 31st, which is today.

Thus, if you didn't get the update last week, then you should expect it to hit sometime over the next few days.

If you're looking for a 4G LTE handset on MetroPCS that packs a pretty decent punch, the just-announced LG Spirit may have your number. At $200 and no annual contract, don't expect the Spirit to be a game-changer, but at first blush it does look like a bang-for-your-buck investment:
