It's not uncommon for a carrier to brag about being the only carrier in the U.S. to offer a particular smartphone. However, since many smartphone manufacturers are starting to offer the same (or very similar) smartphone to different carriers, carriers are losing these bragging rights. In an attempt to continue to differentiate themselves from others, many carriers are turning to color to stand out. To that end, Sprint recently announced it would begin offering the HTC EVO 4G LTE in white on July 15. In addition, AT&T announced it will offer the popular Samsung Galaxy S III in Garnet Red on the same day. Both of these color variants will offer the same features as their predecessors. The white...

For the average consumer, saying the word "bootloader" will get you a blank stare. But for hardcore Android hackers, it's a touchy subject. You see, an unlocked bootloader gives users the ability to easily root their phone and install a custom ROM. In other words, hack into their phone and put a custom build of Android on there. Phone makers are bashed or praised based on if one's bootloader is able to be unlocked, but oftentimes carriers have something to say about it as well. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S III, a new Android smartphone that's available across a number of U.S. carriers, Samsung has realized that there's a vocal minority that cares deeply about unlockability. For them, Samsung... Read more...

Well here's an exciting bit of news for the modding community. Famed Android modder Steve "Cyanogen" Kondik has made available a build of his aftermarket CyanogenMod firmware for Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone, which has yet to ship in the United States. How so? For starters, the Galaxy S III has been available in other parts of the world for about the past three weeks. It's also worth mentioning that Kondik now works for Samsung as a software developer, so there's a good chance he got his hands on a Galaxy S III before everyone else. In any event, the firmware is available as a nightly build over on the XDA Developers forums. Some of the features included are lockscreen gestures, incognito... Read more...

Although Samsung has already made it known that the company won't be announcing the highly-anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone at Mobile World Congress this year, that hasn't stopped specs of this hot phone from leaking onto the web.   One of the reasons Samsung isn't planning to announce the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress is because it wants to shorten the gap between announcing the phone and actually launching it around the world. When the time comes, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S III in over 50 markets or cities simultaneously. Some of the reported specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III include a 4.8-inch full HD 1080p resolution display with 16:9 aspect ratio, a ceramic back,... Read more...
