The launches of Google’s new Nexus devices have been kind of a mess to say the least, and while more people have gotten the opportunity to purchase them because they’re being launched on more carriers, this also means that the rollout wasn’t as simple as just listing them on Google Play. But as of today, some amount of progress is being made, and those in the UK now have a chance to get their hands on the Nexus 6 via O2. Sadly, though, the launch of the Nexus 9 on T-Mobile in the U.S. has hit a bit of a snag, being delayed for an unknown amount of time.

HTC One finally available from Verizon for $199.99

Just as it announced last week, the HTC One is now finally available from Verizon Wireless for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement. The device is being sold only in a 32GB capacity and in a silver color option. It ships with Android 4.2.2, and as you would expect, comes with Sense 5 loaded on top. Unique to the Verizon model, however, are the 4G LTE and Verizon logos plastered on the back.

The specs are the same as the AT&T variant, which launched a staggering four months ago. The HTC One is powered by a Snapdragon 600 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, which even four months later, are pretty solid specifications.

Verizon HTC One sign-up page finally live, release date still missing

After several months of speculation, Verizon has just launched a sign-up page for its HTC One variant. The carrier has been promising to offer the device since June, but the launch has been pushed back by every possible delay. The sign-up page doesn’t offer any additional details as to what we can expect from Verizon’s HTC One variant, though we do now know where the 4G LTE and Verizon logos will be located.

Earlier rumors pointed to the device as launching on August 1st, but as we’re all well aware of, that date has come and gone with no launch. At this point, it looks like we may see finally see a launch sometime this month. More than 5 months after other carriers.

Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available for pre-order on Verizon tomorrow

Our review is here. If you are in Camp Plastic and Camp Big Red, tomorrow’s your day.

GalaxyS4-launch-09Two of the major US carriers today announced they would be pushing back availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 citing inventory challenges on Samsung’s end. First, T-Mobile late last night informed customers that it would be delaying the launch of the device until Monday, April 29th. The carrier originally planned to have the device available through its online store today. T-Mobile’s statement cited delays with “inventory deliveries,” and a press release from Sprint shortly after confirmed carriers are experiencing “unexpected inventory challenges from Samsung.”

Sprint initially planned on making the device available on April 27, but now will only be taking orders online with supplies in brick and mortar stores “as inventory becomes available.”

Sprint is excited to launch the new Samsung Galaxy 4.  We had planned to launch this next generation of the award-winning Samsung Galaxy line-up on Saturday, April 27. Unfortunately, due to unexpected inventory challenges from Samsung, we will be slightly delayed with our full product launch.  Sprint is one of Samsung’s largest partners and we are working closely with them to launch in all Sprint channels as soon as possible. We expect to make Galaxy S 4 available at and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) as planned on Saturday with Sprint retail stores and other channels receiving devices as inventory becomes available.

Earlier today the unlocked variant of the Galaxy S4 found its way to eBay at a cost of $739.

As for Verizon, it had originally quoted an online release date of April 30th with shipments sometime in May and is yet to make an announcement regarding delays. The nation’s other major carrier, AT&T, is planning on making the device available in-store on April 27. You can check out 9to5Google’s full review of the Galaxy S4 here and we’ll keep you posted if there are any further announcements regarding availability.
