The HTC Sensation impressed us so much back when we reviewed it in May, that when UK carrier Three said it would like to give one lucky SlashGear reader the Android smartphone we unsurprisingly jumped at the chance. Up for grabs is HTC's dual-core uberphone, complete with a 4.3-inch qHD resolution display, 8-megapixel camera and the latest version of HTC Sense. Read on for details of how you could win.
UK carrier Three has backtracked on its white iPhone 4 listing, which was spotted yesterday promising April 20 2011 delivery of the coveted device. While the carrier's customer care team told us yesterday that the deal was authentic, Three is now saying that "it's a hidden page that's inactive."
The white iPhone 4 has become something of the thorny unicorn in Apple's side, but it seems the long wait may finally be over. UK carrier Three has just thrown up a product page for the pale smartphone, with the 32GB version priced at £159 ($259) on a £35 per month agreement. According to the product page, the first white iPhone 4 handsets will ship from April 20, or this coming Wednesday.
UK carrier Three has announced its first HSPA+ USB modem, which will be headed to the network on April 7 and, it's claimed, offer 40-percent faster speeds than the existing HSDPA dongles. The Huawei E367 has a rotating USB plug rather than an easy-to-lose cap, and will be available on both pre-pay and a rolling one-month contract.
If you are a fan of Samsung Android smartphones Engadget has landed a leaked roadmap for Three UK that shows a new device coming this summer that might be appealing to some folks. The new smartphone is called the Samsung Galaxy S II Mini. The smartphone is pegged for an April launch according to the roadmap.
UK carrier Three has bucked the data trend and is offering true all-you-can-eat data access on its pre-pay tariffs. A follow-up to unlimited data on the pay-monthly One Plan, the new data tariffs are offered as £15 ($24) or £25 ($41) 30-day add-ons which pre-pay users can tag onto their current contract-free tariff.
Samsung has announced a new Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Pro, and while we've grown used to seeing the company's near-endless variants on the Galaxy S family, the Pro dips a toe in as a QWERTY candybar. Already confirmed as headed to UK carrier Three "soon", the Galaxy Pro has a 2.8-inch 320 x 240 touchscreen above a physical keyboard, along with a 3-megapixel fixed-focus camera.

UK carrier Three has announced that, as of February, it will be offering the Dell Inspiron Duo convertible hybrid netbook/tablet. Based on Intel's dual-core 1.5GHz Atom N550 with 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard-drive, the Windows 7 based Inspiron Duo has a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen that can rotate in its bezel to face forward, for regular notebook use, or outward, to be used as a tablet.
UK carrier Three has stepped up to shake the mobile industry out of its data complacency, dropping the 1GB cap on its The One Plan tariff and instead offering truly unlimited data. The plan - which is priced at £25 ($39) per month - offers 2,000 any-network minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes and 5,000 texts, but of most interest to data-hungry smartphone users will be the absence of "fair use" restrictions.
Facebook's 0.facebook.com mobile site - which promises free access with certain carriers - launched with the promise of broader availability further down the line, and some of that has finally come true. UK carrier Three has announced that its users can now avoid any mobile data charges when surfing the Facebook Zero site, though as before it's a pretty disappointing experience even when compared to the regular mobile Facebook page.
