Not only is the HTC Amaze going to be available here in the states on Oct. 12th, it will soon land in Canada as well. Telus has just listed the high-end phone as “coming soon” on the Canadian carrier’s website. If you will recall, the Amaze was being called the “Ruby” for a while and has some pretty gem-like specs to boot. Adorning a qHD Super LCD powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor running Android 2.3.4. and HTC Sense. There is an 8MP camera with smile detection and dedicated camera and camcorder buttons on the side. The Amaze will come with NFC capability and will allow users to make mobile payments in the near future. A very feature-packed phone, we suspect it will be a major success.
This is going to be a great Android phone so be sure to check it out in the coming weeks.
Telus has put the official “coming soon” label on the Galaxy S II X, aka Hercules. The tentative date is going to be October 19th. No word on price yet, but that’s not very long to wait. As a reminder GSII X has a 4.5-inch (800 x 480) screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 1850mAh battery, Android 2.3.5, and could possibly reach peak download speeds of up to 42Mbps. We posted a hands-on with the device back in September. be sure to check it out here.
We already know that the Samsung Galaxy S II X (aka Hercules) is coming soon to TELUS, but we want to see more. Well our friends at Mobilesyrup got some hands on time with it recently.
As a quick reminder this baby has a 4.5-inch (800 x 480) screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 1850mAh battery, Android 2.3.5, and could possibly reach peak download speeds of up to 42Mbps.
We still don’t have pricing or exactly when you will be able to get your hands on one, but for now check out the video
We have already seen pictures of the HTC Amaze (aka Ruby), but now we have a stunning press shot. The Amaze 4G is rumored to launch October 26th on T-Mobile USA, and it’s expected to be available internationally under the same name. There are also rumors that it will land on Telus in Canada within a few weeks.
The Amaze 4G will have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera, and NFC. We have seen it in both black and white, but we are not sure which version T-Mobile will get.
You know white phones are getting popular when a phone’s title is “black,” but it is offered in white. The Optimus Black, which released on Telus back in July as the “Skype Edition,” will now have a white sibling. Other than the color, it is the exact same device, and no they will not call it the Optimus White. Speaking of that, maybe some day they will come out with an Optimus White and later release a black version.
Pricing will be the same; free for a 3-year contract or $399.99 off contract.
Those of you with a Telus Samsung Fascinate, here’s a little something to help you combat your case of the Mondays. The official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is available, bringing with it all those ginger goodies plus better battery life. If you’ve already started spamming your update button, stop, the update is only available for download through Telus’s website. Hit the source for update instructions.
We had just given you the official name for TELUS’s Galaxy S II model, the 4G Samsung Galaxy S II X, and now their “coming soon” website is live. There’s nothing new for details over at the site, and all we known it that the device will be available “in the coming weeks”. The processor isn’t called out on the site either, though we would assume it will be the same as T-Mobile’s version, the 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060. Keep your eyes peeled as this hot new Galaxy S II should be available soon. You can check out the page over at TELUS from the source link below.
Thanks to mobilesyrup we have an official market name for the Galaxy S II (Hercules) coming to Telus, the 4G Samsung Galaxy S II X. Personally, with the Droid X and X2 out in the wild I think this is a terrible name, but the awesomeness of this phone will help me get over that. The word is this device will be available “in the coming weeks”. There is no information on a solid date or pricing at the moment though. I can’t wait to hear some great reviews from our Canadian friends on Telus to get us excited for when this hits T-Mobile in a month or so. I would have to say that the T-Mobile version won’t have an “X” in the name, just taking a guess on that though. Anyone think Telus in Canada and T-Mobile here in the U.S. will both launch their models around the same date?
While Samsung and Apple battle over the Australian release of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Canadians may now begin weighing offers from Rogers, TELUS and other retailers for this Android Honeycomb device. Although technically it had been available before this point, the new carrier release versions allow users to connect the tab over WiFi or 21 Mbps HSPA+ and thus ultimately it becomes so much more attractive.
Rogers is selling the tablet for $350 with 3-year contract or if you’re not the commitment type, you can buy it out-right for $680. TELUS meanwhile offers no contracts, but various data plans and a pricetag of $650 for the device.
Hit the break for links to these Rogers and TELUS offerings.
