Amazon Wireless Finally Starts Selling Sprint Phones

One of the best places to buy your next Android smartphone is, undoubtedly, Amazon.com, due to its excellent customer service, aggressive pricing, abundance of conveniently placed user reviews, lack of tax, and free shipping. Even better, a few months ago, Amazon opened up a dedicated Amazon Wireless store to concentrate on competitively selling  cell phones and service, including support for existing customer upgrades, family plans, and much more competitive deals.

One obvious omission in the Amazon Wireless store has been a complete lack of Sprint devices and plans.

More Rumors About The HTC Incredible HD Arrive, LTE-Packing HTC Merge Comes Along For The Ride

 

When it comes to Verizon engineers and Twitter, there really aren't any secrets - some employees kind of just let it all out. Such is the case with Jeremiah Nelson (@V3RDICT), who today tweeted out not one, but six items of interest to future LTE customers.

To recap, according to Jeremiah, HTC Merge will not get released this month due to a late decision to equip it with an LTE chip (that's Verizon's version of 4G).

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Says "Me Too!", Joins The Permanent Full Root Club

Hot on the heels of this morning's full and permanent G2 and Desire Z root, XDA-Devs members (apparently headed by grankin01) have released a similarly full and permanent root for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G. In fact, the method is very nearly the same, in grankin's words:

unforgiven512 [who contributed to the G2 root] deserves most of the credit for this tutorial as all I did was rewrite this tutorial in my own words (while looking at his in another window), edit the kernel module, and paste links to it and the hboot file with this tutorial.

T-Mobile G2 Now Has Permanent Root, Desire Z And Desire HD Come Along For The Ride

People want to own their phones. Try as they might to frustrate their customers, networks and manufacturers are fighting a losing battle against the hacking community. The latest victory is an enormous one: the HTC Vision, better known as the T-Mobile G2 and Desire Z has finally been defeated. That pesky eMMC chip locking up the /system of the G2 has been circumvented, and full, glorious, permanent root has been attained:

12:04 < scotty2> -rw-rw-rw- root root 0 2010-11-09 03:00 test

Yep, that's full read and write permissions there, and it's permanent too.

Verizon LTE Expert Confirms Existence Of HTC Incredible HD, Hints At LTE Support

  

A Verizon-bound LTE equivalent of the HTC EVO? Nope, that's no longer just a blissful dream for Big Red users, as @black_man_x, a Verizon employee working in the LTE division, yesterday tweeted out the following message:

2010-11-06 21h12_58

To add on to that, he went on to tell Droid Life that the pictures of the Incredible HD that BGR obtained a few months ago are legit, although the device has since been "refined a bit." We've already seen one great EVO look-a-like, so let's hope this aluminum-clad beast is another.

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Edges Out Win Over iPhone 4 In Wirefly's Browser Speed Test

Our good friends at Wirefly released a video a few days ago showing a browser speed test between the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G and Apple's iPhone 4. The results added another win for the Android crowd, as the myTouch 4G bested the iPhone 4 in both tests.

The win gets even sweeter, though: the second page loads faster on the MT4G, even with the embedded YouTube video (albeit, it doesn't actually load the video).

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Review Roundup: T-Mobile's Best

It seems like only a few days ago the nation's fourth largest carrier launched its highly anticipated and well received first HSPA+ device - the G2. Those of us who aren't keyboard fans, however, didn't have to wait long, as yesterday T-Mobile introduced a second Android device to join HSPA+ ranks: the myTouch 4G. According to some of these early reviews, it's not only better than the G2, it may even be the best phone T-Mobile has to offer.

Deal Alert: Wirefly Now Selling T-Mobile myTouch 4G For Just $79.99

If you thought Wirefly's previous price tag for the myTouch 4G - $149.99 - was low, just wait 'til you see their new price that went live today: $79.99 (free of tax and shipping charges, as always).

Before you get overly excited, there are a few disclaimers, namely:

  • the fact that this is on a new two-year contract, so if you're looking to add a line to an existing family plan, you'll have to cough up $149.99
  • they don't have the purple edition of the myTouch - they've only got the regular black, white, and red versions

Still, there's no denying the fact that this is a pretty hot deal as opposed to T-Mobile's $199.99 price, so hit up the source links to order yours.

T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Available Now - $199 On Contract, Four Colors To Choose From

While we linked a pretty impressive Wirefly deal for pre-ordering the MyTouch 4G a while back, if you didn't take advantage of it, the phone is now available to everyone on T-Mobile's website for $199 after a mail-in rebate on a 2-year contract, new or extended. Presumably the device can be found at your local T-Mobile store as well.

If you're not fond of the contractual ball and chain, the MyTouch 4G will set you back $450 purchased standalone, sans contract.

Rumor: T-Mobile G2 Getting WiFi Calling OTA Tomorrow

It's always been interesting to me that although the $29.99 Optimus T ships with tethering capabilities, the G2 has no such feature. Of course, it's been rumored several times before that the feature is on its way, but as of today, G2 users are still in the dark.

That may all be changing soon though, as a recent leaked screenshot from TmoNews indicates that an OTA update that will begin rolling out tomorrow and finish its trip on November 8 will not only grant you tethering, but will also bring about WiFi calling.
