Here’s how to find out when your T-Mobile smartphone or tablet will receive the next software update


Probably the biggest question smartphone owners have is, “When will I get a software update?” Well T-Mobile is now making it a lot easier to find out that answer. They launched a dedicated site which will let you select your device (phone or tablet) and then find out where things stand.

Software updates have 3 stages and they include manufacturer development, T-Mobile testing, and completion. Once a manufacturer finishes development, they send it to the carrier (in this case T-Mobile) for testing. Testing checks for bugs, which could end up going back to manufacturing development. However, once the carrier (again in this case T-Mobile) is satisfied, then it’s considered completed, and the update will be rolled out. This new site will let you know at what stage your next update is at, as well as what version of Android it will be.

HTC One (M9) press render leaks, all angles and specs exposed


In two weeks, all eyes will be on MWC 2015 as companies unveil the products to carry them through the year. Being that we are so close to the start of the trade show, leaks are almost guaranteed to happen. Today, the HTC One (M9) is the victim of a sizable leak that shows quality shots of the device and gives away its specifications.

The overall design of the One (M9) does not seem to have changed much from last year’s One (M8) to the point where is looks like a revised version of its predecessor. The front-facing speakers, camera, and black bar below the display are all in the exact same places. If anything, the black bar has been thinned a tiny bit and it still looks completely unnecessary. The top features the plastic strip for the IR blaster and the bottom has the charging and audio ports. Nothing has changed with those areas.

Hit the break to see what has changed as well as specifications.
