I'm sure that some Android fans were excited when the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE for Verizon Wireless was officially announced last month. But it's also likely that most of them are annoyed that the Android smartphone is still not available when other versions of the device have already landed.
Recent news indicate that we might have to wait until next month to see this phone in store shelves and online.
Sprint recently launched the HTC EVO 4G LTE as one of the top phones for its Android line-up. However, the arrival of this handset puts in competition with another powerful Android smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus offers some of the main features of the newest EVO such as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and support for the upcoming Sprint 4G LTE line-up. Consumers who are looking for a premium Sprint handset might find themselves examining these smartphones so here's a comparison that might help them to decide and pick the one that fits their needs.
Here's a nice update for consumers who are waiting for the arrival of the latest addition to the HTC EVO family. The HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint was not able to land as planned because of a ban from U.S. Customs Department due to complications with patents owned by Apple. Fortunately, the ban has been lifted and Sprint is pleased to release this statement:
Great news! The wait is almost over! Sprint will begin selling HTC EVO 4G LTE for $199.99 in most retail channels this Saturday, June 2. Sprint retail stores will operate on regular business hours. We are excited to see our customers enjoying this latest generation of the award-winning EVO family.
Here's a nice bit of news for the owners of the HTC Rezound, Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID 4. A new leak suggests that Verizon Wireless is planning to enable the "global" capabilities of these phones.
The HTC EVO 4G LTE Android smartphone for Sprint was scheduled to land on May 18 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. However, the handset will be delayed due to some complications with patents owned by Apple. The U.S. Customs Department is preventing the EVO 4G LTE and AT&T's One X from entering the States since the matter is being reviewed by the International Trade commission.
Fortunately, some emails from BestBuy have provided a glimmer of hope for consumers who can't wait to get their hands on this exciting Android phone. The emails are reportedly informing BestBuy customers, who pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE, that the handset is set to start shipping on May 23.
Here's a device that one should look at if you are looking for an affordable Android cell phone. HTC has recently released its premium One X smartphone in multiple markets so the manufacturer has introduced a device for the mid-range market.
The HTC Desire C is expected to arrive in early June for £169 (€210 or $270) on Pay As You Go, or for free on contract. This handset brings a nice set of features for its affordable price. The Desire C offers a 3.5 inch HVGA display, a 600MHz Snapdragon S1 processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense UI.
Here's some good news for T-Mobile Android users. It appears that the carrier is planning to release the Ice Cream Sandwich update for two of its Android smartphones. HTC has previously announced its ICS update plans for T-Mobile Android smartphones so we're glad that it has already begun.
