After a back and forth over at TmoNews, first with T-Mobile claiming that yes, the Galaxy S Relay (announced several days ago) has an S4 processor, and then Samsung's own product packaging saying otherwise, we've gotten a definitive answer from the source.

Samsung has officially stated to us that the Relay 4G has a Snapdragon S4 processor - for sure. The packaging is incorrectly labeled, and as has been stated over at TmoNews, will be corrected.

At the beginning of August, we heard about a Samsung device heading for T-Mobile that was then called the Galaxy S Blaze Q. The name later changed to Galaxy S Relay 4G, and now it's official.

T-Mobile just announced this QWERTY-packing handset for its HSPA+ 42 network, and it appears to be a fairly solid mid-range device:

  • 4" Super AMOLED display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • slide-out QWERTY
  • SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise)
  • Android 4.0

Neither pricing nor availability is available at this time, only that it will be available online and at T-Mobile retail locations "in the coming weeks."

Update: T-Mo just released official pricing and availability.

T-Mobile has long been known for, uh, stretching the definition of unlimited data here in the US with its soft data caps. But today, T-Mobile is officially launching its new unlimited data plan. The difference? It's actually unlimited, unlike the other unlimited data plans T-Mobile still offers. Making sense yet?

T-Mobile's plans have always been super-duper confusing to me (and everyone, I would think), and today, they're making things slightly simpler.

GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

T-Mobile got into the phablet game a little late when it released the Galaxy Note back in early August. Then, some three weeks later, all traces of the giant Samsung phone inexplicably disappeared from T-Mo's site, and third-party retailers were "out of stock." The latter incident lead us to believe one thing: T-Mobile was canning the original Note and would be getting the Note II soon after it launches in the U.S.

It's not often we find ourselves excited about prepaid here in the US, but if any store can get people excited about saving money, it's Walmart. And what Walmart and T-Mobile just announced is actually pretty exciting if you're looking for a way to get on the smartphone bandwagon with low monthly overhead.

For $300, Walmart will sell you a contract-free T-Mobile Galaxy S II. That in and of itself probably isn't very exciting.

All Wi-Fi versions of Samsung's Galaxy Tab series should have ICS by now, but, as always, carrier connected versions of the devices are left out in the cold. T-Mobile is the only carrier thus far to break that mold when it updated the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus earlier this month.

In a move that should make other carriers feel bad about themselves, T-Mobile has now made available ICS for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, as well.

Yesterday's update UVLH1 for the Galaxy S II on T-Mobile may have shaken things up a bit when it comes to NFC and ISIS, but it now looks like Samsung has also sneaked in a tweak dumbing down universal search. A similar "fix" was discovered in T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy S III 2 weeks ago, and it seems like Samsung is not taking any chances with its older sibling either.

Great news for owners of the MyTouch Q, which welcomed the advent of official CyanogenMod tonight. No, not that MyTouch Q. The other one. I know, the naming scheme is not confusing at all.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

Isis_TM_logo_w_stars_black_rgb

MasterCard and T-Mobile revealed some information about which devices we can expect Isis on when it launches at the end of September (according to Bloomberg), though we have no reason to believe this constitutes every supported device. Here's the list of compatible Android phones, as we've compiled it.

  • T-Mobile
    • Galaxy S II
    • Galaxy S III
    • HTC Amaze 4
  • Verizon
    • DROID Incredible 4G LTE
    • Galaxy S III
  • AT&T
    • One X
    • Galaxy S III

A number of other devices are listed as supporting "any" standard on MasterCard's list, some being international phones, so it's unclear whether phones labeled in this fashion that are in the US will actually support Isis, or if they are merely deemed compatible with it.

A rather innocuous OTA update (T989UVLH1) for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II was announced today, with a 2-line changelog that, on the surface, probably won't excite anyone:

Improvements

  • ISIS/NFC update
  • Bug fixes

That's the whole thing. But that little Isis mention is easy to overlook - this is the first phone to officially indicate (if indirectly) support for the carrier-backed mobile payment system. Unfortunately, we don't have a T-Mobile Galaxy S II in order to check if this update actually brings the Isis app itself, or is merely in preparation for support.
