Looks Like The HTC One E8 – The M8's Plastic Cousin – Is Heading To Sprint

HTC's One M8 is a solid phone. It's packed with high-end specs, and has a high-end build to match. Of course, all that also equates to a high-end price tag. In an effort to build an equally powerful phone with a much smaller price, HTC swapped out the M8's aluminum body for a much subtler plastic frame. The result is the One E8, a much more affordable M8 trapped in plastic shell.

It looks like Sprint could be the first US carrier to offer the E8, judging by the above ad that seemingly hit the company's YouTube prematurely. This essentially confirms the device for The Now Network, though it hasn't officially made an announcement yet.

[Update: Rolling Out] Sprint Begins Moto X Soak Test, Presumably For Android 4.4.4

Update: Good news! Looks like the 4.4.4 soak test is now underway on Sprint. If you're part of the Motorola Feedback Network, you maybe might possibly have access to it now. Hopefully everything runs smoothly so the full update will go out to all users soon.

We've received reports from numerous users that Sprint has started sending out invitations to a soak test of a future update for its version of the Moto X. Though the email sent out to customers doesn't explicitly mention Android 4.4.4, it would make sense considering that Verizon started its soak test a week or so ago and Sprint's version of the handset is already on version 4.4.3.

[Update: Hesse To Step Down] Wall Street Journal: Sprint Has Abandoned Its Bid For T-Mobile, Iliad Regrouping For A New Offer With Dish, Cox, And Charter

Update: Bloomberg is reporting Dan Hesse will step down and be replaced in an announcement tomorrow, during which the plan to end pursuit of T-Mobile will also be discussed.

This one's short and sweet, folks: Sprint has dropped its efforts to purchase T-Mobile according to the Wall Street Journal, citing the perpetually present "people familiar with the matter." According to said persons, SoftBank and Sprint decided the merger would simply be too difficult to accomplish in the face of federal regulators, an experience AT&T became all too familiar with back in late 2011, to the tune of a $4 billion severance fee.

Sprint Updates Its HTC One M8 To Android 4.4.3, Throws In Wi-Fi Calling For Good Measure

Dedicated Android fans will probably be a little disappointed that the latest update to HTC's One M8 flagship on Sprint doesn't include the bleeding edge 4.4.4. But it's pretty close, 4.4.3, and Sprint has thrown in a couple of notable expansions specifically for its network. In addition to the small back-end improvements in 4.4.3, the 2.16.651.4 release adds the Wi-Fi Calling feature that Sprint has been slowly rolling out for the last few months.

Users should also see an icon with the HD Voice badge, which will make Jack Bauer happy, at least. Sprint hasn't mentioned any other changes, though there may be some of the usual improvements and bug fixes.
