We don’t know when it’ll ship or how much it’ll cost, but today AT&T announced that it will offer Sony’s Xperia XL Android phone.
The Xperia XL will sadly ship with Android 4.0, but apparently will be updated to 4.1 shortly after release (we’ll believe that when we see it). But there are some other goodies to mitigate the older OS blues: a dual-core 1.5GHz S4 SoC, a 4.6-inch Bravia 720p HD touchscreen display, and a whopping 13MP primary camera. Other features include NFC with SmartTag, LTE and HSPA+ network support, and a 720p front-facing camera for video chats.
We’ll keep you updated as new information is released.
The new HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is here; Verizon Wireless is selling the phone for $149 with a two-year contract.
The best price for this new Android 4.0 phone can be found at LetsTalk. Whether signing up for a new account, or upgrading from a current device (if eligible), LetsTalk has the phone for just $49 with free shipping. Requires two-year service agreement.

Buy an HTC One X from AT&T and you’ll shell out $199 with a two-year service agreement, whether you’re already an account holder or signing up for service for the first time. Buy the same Android phone from Amazon.com as a new AT&T subscriber, and the price falls a bit to $169.
However, in a rather unusual offering, Amazon is currently selling the HTC One X, both in gray and white, for only $119 for current AT&T account holders eligible for an upgrade. This is odd since the price for upgrading through third-party sellers like Amazon is usually equal to or greater than the price for those signing up for new accounts with new contracts.
So, if you’ve been eying the HTC One X and had been holding off to save a little coin, now may be the time to jump.

We’ve known about the existence of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G for a few weeks now, but this morning Verizon made it official.
The latest Droid Incredible handset will run Android 4.0, will have a Snapdragon S4 SoC with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 4-inch Super LCD display, and an 8MP primary camera with 1080p HD video recording.
No release date or pricing information was provided, other than to say the Incredible 4G will launch “in the coming weeks.” We expect the price to be around $150 with a two-year contract, and for the handset to launch between the end of May and the first half of June.
