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.

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.

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).

For those who want to update manually, you can grab the download right here.

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.

Looks like Big Red is on a roll with the OTA updates this week. First the RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4, then the LG Spectrum, and now the Casio G'zOne Commando. If you don't remember, the all but forgotten G'zOne is Casio's rugged offering to the Android world, packing lightweight specs in a heavyweight shell.

The OTA update, which is build number C771M110 for those who like to keep up with that sort of thing, brings a number of enhancements and fixes:

As always, we expect the update to begin rolling out at any time now, but you can check to see if the update is available on your device by going into Settings > About phone > System updates > Check New.

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.

Sprint PR

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.

Anyone who reads Android Police knows that we generally spend a lot more time debunking rumors and leaks than we do actually reporting them as valid news. With that said, this could be the best look we've seen at the upcoming Galaxy S III yet (if Samsung chooses to stick with that name, of course). While this is most definitely a real device, it's possible that it could be something different than the GSIII altogether, though I honestly doubt that Sammy would pack this kind of hardware into anything other than its highest-end flagship:

  • 4.6-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • NFC
  • 2,050mAh battery
  • Android 4.0

Okay, okay.
