Rogers CommunicationsRogers has updated its OS Upgrades Schedule posted on its Community Forums. All devices on the list are scheduled to receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the near future but it’s a mix of bad and good news.

Let’s start with the bad news: Upgrades for the Samsung Galaxy Note (SGH-I717R) and Samsung Galaxy S II LTE (SGH-I727R) have slipped to “Early January” and “Late January” respectively from an earlier “Late December” ETA.

And now the good news: Three devices have been added to the list: The Motorola Razr HD, the Sony Xperia T, and the HTC One X. All three are currently scheduled for “Late January” updates.

As Rogers warns, “release dates are subject to change.”

HTC One XHTC confirmed back in July that it planned to upgrade at least some its HTC One lineup to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. HTC has now provided MoDaCo with new upgrade schedule details.

HTC will first update the HTC One X. The upgrade will first be pushed out to unlocked devices starting in October. The rollout will then be expanded to carrier devices and HTC expects to complete all upgrades before Christmas. This assumes that it will receive both Google and carrier approvals in time of course.

The HTC One S will also be upgraded but there are still no details. The HTC V’s fate appears to still be undecided.

The report adds that both the HTC One X+ and the HTC One XL headed to European carrier EE will come with Jelly Bean pre-loaded.

HTC confirms Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrades for some HTC One devices

HTCOn the heels of Australia’s Telstra effectively confirming that HTC would upgrade its HTC One lineup to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, HTC has issued a statement confirming that nearly the entire HTC One lineup will be upgraded:

“We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.”

Lacking from the list is the HTC One V. It remains to be seen if HTC is still evaluating that upgrade or has already decided not to offer it.

Engadget has also confirmed that the AT&T, T-Mobile USA, and Rogers Wireless versions of both the HTC One X and One S will also receive the upgrade. There is no word on updates for other Canadian carriers but I suspect that they will also see the upgrade.

There is no word yet on whether HTC will also offer the update to older devices.

HTC One XHTC has confirmed that some HTC One X smartphones suffer from an odd issue where Wi-Fi connectivity can improve when squeezed a certain way, suggesting a loose connection between some components. A statement issued by HTC Europe adds that it is already modifying its manufacturing process to improve the Wi-Fi antennae connection points:

“After investigating isolated reports of WiFi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the WiFi antennae connection points. While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future. HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation.”

While it is still unclear how widespread the issue really is, the news suggests that HTC One X users experiencing this issue should be able to get their devices replaced under warranty.

Update: AndroidCentral has received confirmation from HTC that only the quad-core Tegra 3 version of the One X appears to be affected. If you suspect that you are affected by this issue, contact HTC customer support in your country.

HTC One X and HTC Evo 4G LTE clear U.S. Customs in ITC compliance

 Posted by  Comments Off on HTC One X and HTC Evo 4G LTE clear U.S. Customs in ITC compliance
May 292012
 

HTCHTC today issued a brief statement to indicate that its HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE are now shipping again after U.S. Customs determined that they complied with the ITC’s ruling over the ‘647 patent owned by Apple.

HTC has completed the review process with US Customs and HTC devices have been released, as they are in compliance with the ITC’s ruling. Future shipments should continue to enter the US and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products.

U.S. Customs began to delay shipments of the two devices earlier this month to conduct an investigation to determine if they complied with the ruling. A partial release came last week but this allows HTC to resume all shipments. The hold forced Sprint to delay the launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE while AT&T found itself running out of the HTC One X.

U.S. Customs begins releasing HTC smartphones

HTC EVO 4G LTEOnly days after its imports began being held up by U.S. Customs, HTC yesterday announced that imports of some of its smartphones have resumed. A brief statement indicated that the company was not sure of the status of each device being held up but that some are once again entering the U.S.:

Each imported HTC model must be reviewed by Customs and will be released once Customs officials have completed the inspection. Some models have gone through inspection and been released to our carriers customers. We don’t have the status of each specific device model at this time, but we are working closely with Customs. We remain confident that this issue will be resolved soon.

The news was followed by Sprint announcing that the HTC EVO 4G LTE would begin shipping “for arrival on or around Thursday, May 24” to those who had pre-ordered it on its website. The national launch details are still not confirmed. It will provide further updates “as additional details are available.” It had originally planned to launch the HTC EVO 4G LTE on May 18th.

HTC developed a workaround after it was found by the U.S ITC to infringe on an Apple-owned patent. It looks like the workaround has been validated with the result that the ban is now being lifted.

HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE imports delayed by U.S. Customs

May 162012
 

HTCThe launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE will likely occur later than HTC and Sprint had planned as the smartphone is facing import delays imposed by U.S. Customs. The HTC One X is facing similar delays and will likely become difficult to find at AT&T stores. The holds are due to an unresolved patent infringement issue with Apple. HTC confirmed the delays in a short statement:

The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval. The HTC One X and HTC Evo 4G LTE have been received enthusiastically by customers and we appreciate their patience as we work to get these products into their hands as soon as possible.

In December, the ITC ruled in favour of Apple for one patent infringement and imposed an importation ban on some of HTC’s devices. The ban took take effect on April 19th. At the time, HTC described the ‘647 patent as “a small UI experience” and planned to remove it from all phones.

It is likely that HTC will try to stay the ban as part of an appeal. For now, it remains unclear if and when U.S. Customs will allow imports of these devices to resume.
