This week may have been iPhone week (and we'll have more Apple stuff over the next seven days), but there was plenty of international Android news to go around, too. The UK got its first 4G LTE network from the newly-minted EE (formerly Everything Everywhere, formerly Orange and T-Mobile UK), and with it two leading 4G Android phones. When EE lights up all four Gees in a few weeks time, it'll bring with it the HTC One XL and Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE.
We also learned more about the pricing and carrier availability for Sony's new flagship, the Xperia T. The phone is expected to arrive around Sept. 28 in the UK, on O2, Vodafone and Three, as well as independent retailers Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse. There's a little uncertainty, however, as to whether the device will be available off-contract before the end of the year -- we certainly hope it will be.
Looking ahead, we've got big announcements from HTC, LG and Motorola lined up for next week, so stick around for full coverage of those. There's also the small matter of the iPhone 5 launch, which will undoubtedly keep the iMore team busy next Friday.
