When HTC announced their new EYE Experience, a bundle of improvements to their camera features, they indicated a variety of devices would receive the update over the coming months. Owners of the unlocked version of the HTC One (M8) were probably glad to see they were near the top of the line when the update started rolling out last week along with an update to Android 4.4.4. Now owners of the device on the T-Mobile network will be joining in on the fun as the carrier has given their technical approval for the update.

Users can expect to see an OTA update appear on their devices starting as soon as Tuesday, October 21st. This was announced by Mo Versi, HTC’s vice president for Product Management, via a tweet earlier today.

T-Mobile now rolling out Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)

Posted by wicked October - 18 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

note-10.1-banner

If you own a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) today could just be your lucky day as the operator has just started rolling out the much-anticipated Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to all its LTE variants of the slate currently located in the United States.

When perusing the device’s update history page on Samsung’s website we were somewhat flabbergasted to say the least as, historically, tablet updates rarely happen in the US due to the sheer amount of carrier involvement that’s entailed in adapting the SDK to suit their requirements.

Unfortunately, neither the operator or the manufacturer provided a changelog for the upgrade, but seeing as it’s a bump to the latest version of Android we presume it will bring all of the usual changes, including: faster multitasking, smart caller ID, SMS-to-Hangouts integration, Cloud Print and QuickOffice.

To see if your tablet is eligible for the update, head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates”. If a pop-up window doesn’t appear prompting you to upgrade, don’t worry. It means that the update is not ready to be pushed out to your device, just yet. But when it is available, you will receive a push notification requesting you to download and install it.

Preorder an Xperia Z3 and get DriveClub for PS4 free

Posted by wicked October - 16 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

As if the Sony Xperia Z3 itself wasn’t already an incentive enough for you, Sony is offering a free digital copy of the racing game Driveclub for PS4 when you purchase their latest flagship device. The game, which has garnered mostly positive reviews since it was released last year, will be given as a bonus if you buy the smartphone within a certain period. The Xperia Z3 will be pre-selling from October 14-28 before it becomes officially available through T-Mobile by October 29.

The mechanics are simple enough. When you purchase your Xperia Z3 during the pre-selling phase, you can redeem your digital copy of Driveclub once you receive your unit. Go to the Sony Mobile site, enter the information asked, upload pictures of your sales receipt as well as the device’s IMEI number which can be found on the box itself. They will then email you a promo code so you will be able to claim the game. But you need to redeem it by November 14 and you will receive the promo code not later than November 21.

The Xperia Z3 has revived interest in Sony as a contender in the Android market. Its 5.2-inch full HD screen has been enhanced with the Bravia and Triluminos tech. It also boasts as the furst smartphone (so far) that has ISO 12800 sensitivity which means you can use it in low-light or underwater situations. The 20.7 megapixel camera also has a 25mm wide angle Sony G Lens which mobile photography enthusiasts will find very handy. It can also be used with the PS4 as it has the Remote Play feature, which is probably why they’re giving you a Driveclub game so you can try it out.

T-Mobile will start selling the Xperia Z3 by October 29, offering it at $630 for the full retail price. You can also get it at $26.25 per month for 2 years with zero down if you’re a T-Mobile subscriber. Those who pre-order the smartphone will get their device before the actual release.

Nexus 6 to arrive on T-Mobile this November

Posted by wicked October - 16 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Fresh from the announcement from Google of the new Nexus devices and Android 5.0 or Lollipop, T-Mobile announced today that the Nexus 6 smartphone will be coming to the network by November. Already, people are buzzing about the new device, as it is probably the first Google phone that can be called a phablet and it is also the first Nexus device to be produced by Motorola. It will also be running on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop (darn, we were hoping for Lemon Meringue Pie) with its Material Design look.

Aside from its features, like the almost 6-inch 5.96-inch Quad HD display and the 2.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 which will run the device, one thing that might excite T-Mobile subscribers about the device is that it will have WiFi calling capabilities when the carrier’s WiFi Un-leashed will be, well, unleashed early 2015. Thanks to enhancements in the Lollipop, a simple OTA update next year will allow you to make voice calls through your Internet connection.

The Nexus 6 will be available in either 32 or 64 GB internal storage options (RAM is still not specified but will probably be at either 2 or 3). For mobile photography enthusiasts, the device has a 13-megapixel main camera, a (not so exciting) 2-megapixel front facing camera, f/20 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization, 4K video recording and an LED flash ring. In terms of battery life, it has a 3.220 mAh battery and a Turbo Charge feature that will make it last for 6 hours of use at just 15 minutes of charging.

By November 12, T-Mobile subscribers will be able to get the Nexus 6 at $0 down or $27.08/month on a 24 month installment plan. If you’re too excited to find out if you can pre-order it already or you just want to receive an email reminding you that it will soon be available (maybe there will be a countdown!}, you can sign up for updates on the Nexus 6 page on the T-Mobile site.

Nexus 6 to Gain WiFi Calling on T-Mobile in Early 2015

Posted by wicked October - 15 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

In case T-Mobile’s Un-carrier 7.0 event did not make it clear, the wireless carrier is extremely committed to WiFi calling. Lest you were concerned the Nexus 6 would not support the carrier’s much-vaunted feature, you can now rest easy.

T-Mobile has confirmed in a press release that the Nexus 6 will gain support for WiFi calling in early 2015 after an over-the-air update.

T-Mobile said “enhancements” in Android 5.0 make adding the feature possible, which may explain why the Nexus 5 was never supported.

Since it is set to receive Android 5.0 soon, though, that opens the possibility of a retroactive update. There are of course no guarantees, though, until we hear official word.
