We’re not sure what LG was thinking when it shipped the Optimus G with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, but at least we can look forward to some enhanced features that have been promised…
There's nothing more frustrating for Android fans than hearing about a great new iteration… and going wanting for it. For HTC One X owners, today is a good one. Reports suggest that the AT&T device will soon get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean!
One X owners have been relegated to Ice Cream Sandwich since purchasing the device, first available in April of last year. Jelly Bean was first released to the public about 3 months later, putting the HTC One X almost immediately behind. Ice Cream Sandwich is good, but Jelly Bean is great, and HTC One X owners are about to get a taste.
What's so good about Jelly Bean? Oh, plenty. You'll get that good, good Project Butter which makes your phone smooth and delicious. Google Now is a delight, keeping you on track in just about every aspect of life. There is an ISIS mobile payment function (good luck finding a place it works at), and the carrier bloatware we've all come to loathe and ignore. Don't worry about having to re-learn your interface… HTC Sense 4 is still there.
What's the twist to the story? I thought you'd never ask! It seems AT&T has pulled the original blog post regarding the update, which also mentioned Jelly Bean would start hitting handsets today. Maybe they noticed a problem, or just wanted to surprise the One X faithful.
Have you received your update yet? We're anxious to know!
