Sprint Is In Talks With Softbank For A "Substantial Investment" That "Could Involve A Change Of Control"

We've heard rumors that Sprint is considering outbidding T-Mobile for MetroPCS's affection. Just in case that doesn't work, though, Sprint wants us to know that there is another plan in the works: being purchased by Softbank. Since most of you likely aren't up to date on Japanese telecoms, here's the deal: Softbank is a Japanese telecom. The third largest wireless carrier in the country, so a bit of a kindred spirit with Sprint.

We've already seen the RAZR M land on the nation's largest carrier. Now, Verizon is adding the other two RAZRs we knew were coming.

LG Escape For AT&T Review: The Best Budget Phone I've Ever Reviewed

When it comes to the newest generation of phones, "budget" is closer to "flagship" than ever before. Two months ago, I reviewed the free-on-contract Pantech Marauder and came away highly impressed. Ron, too, reviewed the $100 Motorola Razr M and said "This is what budget phones are like now? Where do I sign up?" The old budget formula of taking last-gen hardware and slapping it in a cheap chassis has given way to current-gen hardware in a better chassis - not to mention that the optimizations and polish of Android 4.0 make the experience better than ever on virtually any level of hardware.

Good morning, owners of the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III Epic 4G Touch. When you get your breath back, check your device's update function in the settings menu. Sprint's got a maintenance update, assuming that you're running the latest stock and non-rooted version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Ice Cream Sandwich Now Rolling Out To The Atrix 2 On AT&T

Back in late September, Motorola updated its ICS rollout timeline, highlighting that several updates had been delayed, one of which was the Atrix 2. Then, much to the surprise of basically everyone, Moto released details and a soak test of the Atrix 2's Android 4.0 update just three days later. Silly Moto.

According to the official AT&T blog, the update is ready for that masses and should be rolling out to users now.

T-Mobile Officially Announces The LG Optimus L9, Coming 'Later This Fall'

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."

  • 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).

[Deal Alert] HTC One X On AT&T Now $0.01 For New Customers From Amazon Wireless

There are two types of people in this world: those who stick with the same carrier for decades at a time, and those who jump from one to another in order get the best phones. If you fall into the latter category, now may be the time to head over to AT&T, because the HTC One X just dropped to a penny at Amazon Wireless.

Sure, HTC may have already announced the One X+ with AT&T as its exclusive provider here in the States, but that doesn't take away from what a solid device the original One X is right now.
