Starting today, T-Mobile customers can register their interest in the world’s first curved self-healing smartphone, the LG G Flex, which will be available to purchase from the operators online store or in any of its bricks-and-mortar stores nationwide in the not-too-distant future. By pre-registering users will automatically receive an email notification the second the official pre-order page goes live, so they are effectively guaranteeing themselves a place in the queue to order this revolutionary handset.

Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it’s in the throes of expanding its LTE connectivity service to include a further 14 new markets. The announcement was made in a single press release on the carrier’s website and the operator didn’t hesitate to take the opportunity to mention that its service now provides “super fast” data speeds to over 200 million people in the United States.
AT&T has again broadened its horizons by expanding its 4G network coverage across Texas and launching the availability of its “super fast” LTE signal to Stephenville, TX as part of its three-year Project Velocity IP (VIP) investment plan, which is aimed at improving and enhancing both broadband and 4G network access across the whole of the United States.
Cricket Wireless has today started pushing out the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean over-the-air update to all of its locked carrier-branded Samsung Galaxy S III handsets located in the United States. In addition to the upgraded build of the open source operating system, this update also brings a truckload of bug fixes, stability improvements, speed optimizations, as well as support for Samsung KNOX, Sound & Shoot and the Galaxy Gear.
AT&T is in the process of pushing out a fairly minor over-the-air (OTA) update weighing in at just 57MB to all its carrier-branded LG G2 handsets located in the United States. Although it doesn’t bring any major software improvements, it’s still quite a significant stability update that we would strongly advice all G2 owners to download and install.
British smartphone retailer Carphone Warehouse has today unveiled three new additions to its Galaxy S4 mini lineup in pink, orange, and purple. They’re identical to the original Galaxy S4 mini under the hood, and they’re available on all of the U.K.’s major carriers from £21 ($34) a month.
Last month HTC unveiled the One Max, as a dramatically upscaled variant to its immensely popular high-end Android-powered smartphone, the HTC One, and now Sprint has officially announced that the phablet will be available to purchase on any of its 2-year tariffs starting at $299 or for $25 per month with the Sprint One Up program, as from tomorrow, November 15.
Google Play isn’t the only place where you can pick up the new Nexus 5 without a contract, but if you decide to shop elsewhere, you’re likely to pay a lot more for it. In the U.K., for example, the 16GB variant costs £299 ($481) direct from Google, but some stores are charging as much as £400 ($643).
This isn’t just a bid to make a quick buck while the handset is sold out on Google Play. The reason for these high prices is that the cost of the Nexus 5 on Google Play actually undercuts the prices retailers must pay to wholesalers.
Cricket Wireless has officially announced that the ZTE Source will be the latest budget-friendly smartphone to be added to its “affordable” lineup of Android-powered devices. The Source will launch on Sunday, October 20, and the U.S. carrier will hold exclusivity over the handset at launch.
Sony’s latest high-end Android-powered phablet, the Xperia Z Ultra, was revealed back in June, and now both Three U.K. and O2 have officially announced that they will carry the device starting from today. The handset is available to purchase in-store from both carrier’s, as well as online from O2. Unfortunately, it will not be available online from Three U.K. until October 18.
