Samsung Galaxy S To Hit The Four Major US Carriers?

Samsung Galaxy S To Hit The Four Major US Carriers?

In a surprising turn of events, it’s beginning to look like Samsung’s latest Android superphone, the Galaxy S, may be headed to a carrier near you.

Forbes is reporting that an analyst for Broadpoint.AmTech, Mark McKechnie, ‘expects the Galaxy S to be sold at AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint before the end of June and to be picked up at Verizon "sometime later in the year"’. Those are certainly promising words, and Forbes seems to have enough faith in this prediction to run with it, but it should be noted that Samsung has declined to comment on carrier availability.

Re: Re: FWD: Re: Sprint HTC Hero Android 2.1 Final Update Schedule Confirmed!!!11One

We are all tired of waiting for Android 2.1 to finally officially land on the HTC Hero, or even get a definite day announced by anyone official.

Speculations after speculations that started back in November kept predicting new dates after dates for an upgrade, starting from January to pretty much every week of April, and now May.

In light of these "rumors", we found a new rumor of that we wanted to share, with smiles on our faces.

Detailed Mega Review Of Android 2.1 On Our HTC Hero - Discover All The New Features (With Lots Of Screenshots)

Introduction

Us, Hero owners, have been waiting for an OS upgrade for a loooooong time, since the phone got released last October with Android 1.5.

At first, we were hoping for 1.6, then 2.0, and finally 2.1 was promised ("Totally for real this time, yo" - said Sprint and HTC but we saw nothing).

Other phones kept getting 2.1 upgrades but our favorite Hero saw only promises after promises with release dates pushed further and further back.

HTC Hero And Samsung Moment Android 2.1 Updates Coming In Early May

An internal Sprint memo has surfaced showing a new early May release date for both HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android phones, jonathan76888 on AndroidForums found out.

The memo looks quite legitimate and this time actually lists 2.1 as the update target, compared to the one from 3 weeks ago that referenced a "maintenance release" and promised an April 9th date (followed by rumors of April 16th, all false).

The wait is almost over, guys.

Rumorville: Expect The HTC EVO 4G To Drop In June And Your Wallet To Go On A $10-20 Monthly Diet

Rumorville: Expect The HTC EVO 4G To Drop In June And Your Wallet To Go On A $10-20 Monthly Diet

The EVO 4G news is continuing to roll in, though I’m using the term ‘news’ loosely. Engadget is reporting today that Sprint’s upper management is talking about a potential June 6th or 13th launch date, with the 13th seeming more likely to get some hot 4G action.

Engadget is definitely one of the more trustworthy gadget blogs out there right now, but they can only peg this information on ‘intel’, so at this point it does not appear that anything is set in stone.

Rumorville: HTC EVO 4G Pre-Order To Start April 16th

A rumor is floating around, started by an alleged BestBuy employee, about BestBuy starting EVO 4G preorders within a couple of weeks, possibly starting on April 16th.

The rumor comes from gstill4, an AndroidCentral forum member, who posted this last night at 11PM:

I work at best buy and I got info today that best buy mobile is about to get ready to take pre-orders within a couple weeks and it could possibly start on april 16th

We were already expecting BestBuy to start preorders for the EVO 4G sometime soon, and this only reassures our expectations, whether gstill4 is credible or not.

Rumors have been flying for the past few months that Sprint and HTC would update the Hero to the long awaited Android 2.1 Eclair today - March 26th, 2010.

Sprint CEO Confirms 4G On Your Phone Will Not Cost Extra

Sprint CEO Confirms 4G On Your Phone Will Not Cost Extra

Yesterday we reported that Sprint will not charge extra for using 4G on your phone, based on the response from a Sprint customer service rep. Some people pointed out that customer service reps are oftentimes wrong, and while we certainly agree with that statement, the CSR was quite confident in her response. Additionally, a good portion of the news market nowadays is comprised of rumors.

Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long for the "rumor" to be confirmed.
