Android Other: AT&T Galaxy SIII Available In-Store July 6, GSM RAZR Gets ICS, T-Mobile Galaxy Note Pushed Back

AT&T Galaxy SIII Will be Available In-Store July 6

Up until now, if you really wanted the AT&T Galaxy SIII you had to order it from their online store. But Big Blue just announced that they will finally start stocking the phone in their stores this week. Unfortunately, if you were looking to show off your new phone to everyone at your 4th of July cookout, you’re going to be out of luck, however, head into the store on Friday if you need it then.

International (GSM) Motorola RAZR Receiving ICS as Well

Verizon DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX owners weren’t the only lucky ones over the weekend. Android 4.0.4 began rolling out to almost all the RAZRs rather than just those in the US. This update is the lightly skinned version that Motorola has provided and should be available for your phone now. Head over to Settings > About Phone > System Updates to see if the update is available to be downloaded.

T-Mobile Pushes Back Galaxy Note to August 8th? 

T-Mobile never officially announced the Galaxy Note, let alone a release date, but there was some good evidence supporting a July 11th launch date. That does not seem to be the case anymore, however. The guys over at TmoNews have come across an internal T-Mo document that now points to 8/15 for the release of the Note. T-Mobile needs to hurry up and release it soon before the Note 2 arrives.

Elder HTC Incredible S Receiving Android 4.0.4 OTA

Before most flagship phones are even in testing for Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC is gracing the users of the Incredible S with an OTA. Users in Europe are reporting that their phones are being pushed to Android 4.0.4 with Sense 3.6 in tow. It is fantastic to see a device maker put so much weight into updating existing phones in a timely manner like HTC is doing. No word on when other Incredible S users will see the update, but HTC will surely tell us when it happens.

    The people that simply walk into any store… will get it several days before those that ordered it WEEKS in advance?

    Thanks AT&T.

    • balthuszar

      where does it say that? or is there an e-mail that gets sent out when you pre-order it from their online store that tells you when it gets shipped out?

  • Geocranium

    Is there a date for when Verizon is supposed to land their GSIII yet?

    • evltwn

      It looks like the 12th, but they haven’t officially announced it yet. The ship by dates on VZW are 7/11. I think they are including overnight delivery for those online orders. I could be wrong on that though.

      • My cousin works at verizon he said preorders ship on the 11th they get it the on the 12th. This was a week ago when i preordered, if the dates have changed my bad.

      • Jon

        They ship 2nd day air if I’m not mistaken.

        • JoshGroff

          Usually, unless they’re running a next day shipping promo, that sounds about right.

    • Jon

      As I understand it, those who pre-ordered very early will ship on 10th, then a next batch on 11th, and yet another on the 12th. It all has to do on how early you pre-ordered. I spoke with a Verizon rep yesterday and she confirmed my pre-order for the 11th…and she did not just simply say a standard date for everyone, she actually had to look it up because everyone’s dates are different according to when pre-order was placed.

      She also said they usually ship phones a few days earlier that stated ship date, and that I may even get it a bit earlier.

      I’m dying to see an email notification telling me it’s shipped! I have never pre-ordered a phone, and I’m dying here in anticipation.

    Thanks for this news update, would have missed that sideloads/and Rogers ROM for GSM RAZR had been leaked.. did the update via rooting my phone.. Pretty annoyed that I didn’t realize you had the option to install the Official ROM via sideload without rooting. Would have much preferred that. Thanks again for the news summary. Reader, Ravi Shanghavi Ottawa

    Why does it seem like everyone is getting ICS BUt rezound owners. Wtf Verizon . Burn just burn

    • David Dudovitz

      You think that’s a burn? How about that the Incrdible S is the exact same phone as the DInc2 and itwill take that phone another couple months or so to receive the same update!

    • balthuszar

      my husband has ics on his rezound…and he’s not rooted(so dont say that)

  • Liderc
