Confirmed: Samsung Nexus S 4G Receiving GRJ90 Software Update With NFC Secure Element And Fix For Radio Problems On July 11th

The Nexus S 4G is, without a doubt, a great phone - but as of now, many units ship with a major flaw: they often have trouble connecting to 4G or even WiFi. The issue doesn't affect all Nexus S 4Gs, as shown by Android Central's poll on the subject, but those suffering from it are understandably unhappy with their devices.

And though it may have seemed that Sprint was turning a blind eye to these users' woes, it turns out they've actually been working on an update that will address this issue.

Motorola DROID 3 Pricing Leaked: $199 With A New Two-Year Contract, $459 Without

Those (im)patiently awaiting the upcoming launch of the DROID 3 now have even more info on what to expect: thanks to Droid Life, we now know what the phone's pricing will look like, both on- and off-contract.

If you're cool with signing a new two-year agreement, you'll be paying the now-standard price of $199. Alternatively, if the shackles of a contract are enough to scare you away, you could purchase the phone off-contract for the fairly reasonable price of $459 (I say "fairly reasonable" since other carriers, such as Sprint, happily charge over $600 for an contract-free phone).

HTC EVO 3D Review: A Nearly Flawless Device With One Completely Useless Gimmick

To say the HTC EVO 3D has a lot to live up to would be a colossal understatement. Its predecessor, the EVO 4G, ushered in a whole new smartphone era - one replete with 4.3-inch, 4G-capable Android behemoths.

And at least on paper, the new EVO is a marked improvement over the original, packing a significantly crisper display, a processor with twice the cores, and of course the much-ballyhooed stereoscopic 3D capabilities.

Verizon Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE Pre-Order Up, Starts At $529.99 With New 2-Year Enslavement

I'm not sure how well this 4G-ified Tab 10.1 is going to do in terms of sales, but it's coming nonetheless. And in four flavors! And by that, I mean there's two storage options (16GB or 32GB) and two color options (grey or white):

MANYTABS

These prices are, of course, subsidized with a new 2-year data contract. How subsidized? Try $100 off (yes, that's all). Sounds like Verizon is super confident about this thing, too.

T-Mobile Appears To Be No Longer Blocking gTalk Calls Over 3G - Is It Working For You?

When the new Google Talk with voice and video calling was launched, those of you on T-Mobile who wanted to place calls on 3G quickly found out that it wasn't at all possible. Rather than connecting you to your dog for an afternoon chat, the application stubbornly insisted on only operating through a Wi-Fi connection. At Google I/O 2011, I was able to dig up some more technical details surrounding this limitation, even further upsetting hopeful customers.
