Listen up, UK readers: if you're rocking an HTC One from 2013, and you got it from O2 or Three, check your notification bar for an update. According to this HTC support page, a fresh, steaming copy of Sense 6 is headed your way. The unlocked GSM model of the One M7 should also be getting the update. (Apparently the unlocked update is going out by country, since the US unlocked model was already updated.) Vodafone UK and EE users will have to wait.

Would you believe that Motorola has been trying to decide what to do with the Photon Q for like...some large number of months? It's true. Up until today, the Motorola Upgrade Portal has been sitting steadily on "Future plan coming soon" for the poor ol' Q. Now, it has been updated to say "This device will remain on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)" – not much of a shocker there, really.

Oh well, at least folks who may still be using the Photon Q should be approaching the end of their contract at some point in the very near future, assuming the device was purchased shortly after it was released back in August of 2012.

It's time to fire up that Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 and see what all the fuss is about with this KitKat thing everyone's been talking about... for months. Well, it's not like you bought the Sprint version of the Gtab because you wanted fast updates – it was just dirt cheap, and sometimes free. Consequently, there are probably a fair number of devices out there getting an update today.

It's been a rough morning for T-Mobile. Perhaps you've noticed your phone has been unusually silent, and people don't seem to be responding to your text messages. Well, the reason is probably the extensive outage Tmo has been dealing with for the few hours. That, or no one likes you. Either way.

The problems are widespread, but not universal.

It's raining LTE-equipped tablets over at AT&T this fine evening, and you can order yourself up one right now. You've got your choice of a standard tablet, one with a stylus, and one with a whole phone in it. We truly live in the future.

If you're thinking about switching to AT&T or opening a new line of service on an existing plan, the company is offering a pretty decent incentive to those who buy Android devices: $50 of Google Play credit with a device purchase.

Basically all Android devices that Big Blue sells are eligible, and it doesn't matter which type of "contract" you decide to go with – it works with both two-year agreements and AT&T Next.

Rumors of an impending Sprint acquisition of T-Mobile have swirled for months as America's two underdog carriers have engaged in a not-so-private courtship, and it appears an announcement may be close, if you're inclined to believe Bloomberg.

The deal would allegedly value T-Mobile around $30 billion ($31.3 billion to be precise), though an exact agreement hasn't been reached as to a number. T-Mobile carries a little under $15 billion in debt and over $5 billion in cash, meaning Sprint's new parent firm Softbank will take on even more debt in an attempt to fortify a position against American wireless heavyweights AT&T and Verizon.

HTC manages its Sense Android skin a bit differently than other OEMs do. It makes a big deal about the features each version includes, and actually updates old devices to the new UI, even if it takes a separate update to do it. The AT&T M7 got Android 4.4 a while back, but the updated Sense 6 is ready to go out today.

Update: Xperia Blog has confirmed this update is, in fact, Android 4.3. I can confirm that T-Mobile does, in fact, suck at changelogs. The version has also been tweaked to 10.4.C.0.814.

It might not be the latest and greatest anymore, but the Sony Xperia Z on T-Mobile is still getting some update love today. That mysterious Android 4.3 update that was pulled a few months back still isn't back, apparently. Instead, you get some small tweaks.

It's been nearly 2 years since the Incredible name last graced a Verizon phone (albeit a crappy one), and while the name doesn't seem to be making a comeback, the philosophy might, in the form of the HTC One Remix.

HTC and Verizon have a long and storied history of branded handset partnerships, and the Remix looks to be a very slight twist on the One Mini 2, the HTC One M8's down-market counterpart.
