HTC's One X is hands-down the best smartphone released this year. While the version we're seeing here in the States (on AT&T, to be specific) isn't quite the beast the quad-core version found overseas is, the AT&T variant does pack LTE. Other specs:

  • 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU (Krait architecture)
  • 4.7" 720p display (1280x720)
  • 16GB memory
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • Full 1080p HD video recording at 60fps
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.0.x
  • Sense 4.0

Thankfully, those cutting-edge specs aren't going to break your budget, either: the phone is now available for pre-order on Amazon Wireless for $150 for both the gray and white models - that's $50 less than you'll pay to get it straight from AT&T.

Not that we assume you've forgotten, but here's a quick reminder for anyone who has been waiting for the HTC One X on AT&T: pre-orders begin today. You'll have to wait until May 6th to get your device, but with that date still two weeks away, you can at least guarantee to have one in-hand on launch day.

Specs:

  • 4.7-Inch SuperLCD 2 1280x720 display with Gorilla Glass 2
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon Krait processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • LTE
  • 8MP f/2.0 rear shooter with zero shutter lag
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • NFC
  • Android 4.0.x with Sense 4

The device will set you back $199 with a two-year agreement - a rather reasonable price for what could be one of the biggest flagships we've seen this year.

Over the past year or so, HTC devices have become notoriously more difficult to root/mod/S-Off than the devices of yesteryear. When one series of devices gets cracked, the next generation released by HTC has historically been drastically more difficult to crack.

This has been the case for some of the more recent HTC devices; namely the Amaze, Rezound, Sensation/XE, Vivid/Raider/Velocity, And MyTouch 4G Slide. Up until now, a few of those devices have never even received S-Off status.

Update: We've gotten official word from Sprint - the EVO 3D is officially on the way out:

The award-winning HTC EVO 3D is no longer available through Sprint.com. Quantities are limited, but customer can still get HTC EVO 3D at Sprint Stores nationwide.

So here's an interesting little fact: if you go to Sprint's site right now and look for the EVO 3D, you won't find it. Really.

An Android phone is like a Leatherman Tool. It does a lot of things - without a doubt, a triumph of function over form. Android is the world's most versatile mobile operating system, the most tweakable, the most adaptable, and the most fully-featured. It just does more than any other comparable product out there. But if Android is a Leatherman, the iPhone is the basic Swiss Army Knife - compact, simple, iconic, and good enough for the vast majority of people, even if it does do a little less.

I'm convinced that April 22, 2012 will forever be recognized as one of the most Android-packed day of all time. Why, you ask? Because that's the day that the day that Sprint's Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and LG Optimus Elite will be available, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7 and ASUS Transformer Pad 300. Looks like AT&T didn't want to be left out, so it announced this morning that its version of the HTC One X would be available for pre-order on that very day for $199, with a release date set for May 6th (which lines up with previous rumors - good job, Best Buy!).

HTC, keeping up with its recent pattern of speedy source release, has dropped official ICS kernel source code for a heaping handful of devices, perhaps most notably the One V, a member of HTC's new One line which hasn't yet debuted in many countries.

Other devices include the US variant of the Vivid and several iterations of the Sensation, with the Desire HD and myTouch 4G Slide's Gingerbread (2.3) kernel source also being dropped.

It's been a while since VZW showed any love to Thunderbolt owners, but that doesn't mean that it has forgotten about them completely. In fact, we just received a leak of a new build that brings some fixes and enhancements to Big Red's first LTE device.

While we already know that the Thunderbolt will be getting updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, this is just an incremental Gingerbread build.

Update: According to The Verge, HTC has indicated that it's "aware of the reports," and is currently investigating the situation. Stay tuned for further info.

Update 2: Turns out that HTC is ready to make good on this issue, but only by telling customers to return their chipped phone to the store from which it was purchased and get a replacement. If, however, you'd rather send it off to HTC to be repaired, that's always an option.

Well, that was fast. Not more than a week after the release of the HTC One X and S in Europe, and Koush has already pumped out a fully working version of ClockworkMod Touch for the pair.

If you have any of the devices supported by CWM Touch and you aren't running it, then you're seriously missing out. Touch recovery is, by far, the most intuitive way to use recovery on your device.
