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.

The Google Maps team added support for Street View in Israel's major cities this past weekend - Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa. If you haven't had a chance to check out Street View yet, it can take you on a virtual stroll down city streets right inside Google Maps - on the web or on your Android device.

For example, to check out Tel Aviv's views, download Street View on Google Maps, head over to Google Maps and punch in "Tel Aviv, Israel." Then click on the city name, Street View, and voila:

Pan, click, move, show your friends and family - it's especially impressive to those who have never seen Street View in action, which could be the case if, you know, you actually live in Israel.

Need a new tablet? You're in luck, because the selection just got a little wider today, thanks to new offerings from ASUS and Samsung.

ASUS Transformer Pad 300

If you're in the market for a nice high-spec-low-price 10.1-inch tablet, then the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 is a hard one to beat. It's packing specs pretty close to the Transformer Prime, but thanks to a slightly lower-quality display and plastic body, comes in at around $150 less than the Prime.

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.

2012-04-22_11h02_32

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.

While we're all waiting around for the Galaxy Note 10.1 to arrive and blow us away with its S-Pen powers on a Photoshop-equipped tablet, Samsung has set a couple new tablets loose on the market. Headlining on price, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 competes head-to-head with the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire. This tablet's advantage: Android 4.0. At $250, it's the cheapest way to get the full Android experience.

When we first heard about a $250 7" Android tablet, it wasn't from Samsung, but ASUS.

The day that many Sprint customers have been waiting for is finally here: the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. That's not the only new device to hit The Now Network today, either - the LG Viper and LG Optimus Elite also join the ranks of new offerings on Sprint.

Although the Galaxy Nexus pre-order inventory sold out after only three days of availability, it looks like there are plenty to go around now.

galaxy note 3

It's pretty clear that many consumers are interested in the gargantuan Galaxy Note. Unfortunately, it hasn't seen the same kind of mainstream success as the Galaxy S2 because only AT&T has had access to the device. But according to FCC filings and a user agent string obtained by TmoNews, T-Mobile is preparing a device that multiple pieces of evidence point to being the Galaxy Note.

First off, we have the screen resolution: 800 x 1280.

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.

Owners of the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju) are waking up to an OTA update notification this morning that is said to fix the signal loss issues which came along with build IMM76D. Since this new build (IMM76I) doesn't bump the Android version, kernel, or radios at all, however, we're not sure if the update makes any other changes (though it's unlikely).

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

Here's a bit of good news for all of you who have an unlocked (global) Samsung Galaxy S II here in the U.S.: Ice Cream Sandwich is being pushed to your device right now. This makes the global GSII the first of the GSII family to officially get Ice Cream Sandwich in the U.S., as none of the three American carriers that offer the phone have begun sending the update yet.
