How to Install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the Kindle Fire

by: Paul NuñalJanuary 13, 2012

Amazon’s Kindle Fire is definitely a showstopper with its impressive specifications. The device is selling like hotcakes, with over 1 million units sold in a span of 21 consecutive days. Since its inception, the Kindle Fire was touted as the best-selling product in Amazon stores for 11 weeks straight.

It was also the most gifted and most wished-for device during the holiday season. It’s no surprise that the Android underground community is pledging support for the magnificent device by bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to it.

While development is still going on, the guys at XDA Developers managed to whip out an interesting alpha version of an Ice Cream Sandwich [...]

Google Introduces Android Design Guidelines for Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich

by: AlexanderJanuary 12, 2012

Not to long ago we told you about the Holo theme that Google was going to make manufacturers use if they wanted to have access to the Android Market on their devices, well now Android has taken that a step further. Today Martias Duarte stopped by The Verge and spoke with them about this new Android Design Guide which will allow developers and manufacturers to build on top of Ice Cream Sandwich’s beauty.

According to Vlad from The Verge:

The initial version of the guide includes information like typography, color palettes, and other stylistic advice, as well as a breakdown of the components making up the Android UI. Matias stresses that what we’re [...]

Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus has 32GB of Internal Storage

by: AlexanderJanuary 11, 2012

Great news for all of us looking for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. The ads that had the Sprint Galaxy Nexus shown with only 16GB of storage seem to have been wrong. I emailed Sprint yesterday asking them why they weren’t offering the 32GB version, and they got back to me today saying that they are offering the 32GB version of the Galaxy Nexus. So now all your Sprint customers thinking of switching to Verizon just for the 32GB Galaxy Nexus don’t need to.

So now the question is will Sprint charge the same $299 that Verizon is charging? Or will it keep to it’s $199 pricing structure that they said they would keep for their LTE devices? We’ll have to [...]

Hands-On With the Lenovo IdeaTab K2010 [K2] Tablet – Tegra 3, IPS HD Display & More [VIDEO]

by: Darcy LaCouveeJanuary 9, 2012

We’re reporting live here from Las Vegas, at CES 2012! Lots of exciting things are coming up, and here’s our take on Lenovo’s latest tablet – with Tegra 3 and an HD display on board.

I just had a hands on with Lenovo’s IdeaTap K2 Android Tablet, and I do have to say it is one fine piece of hardware. The IdeaTab is sporting a Tegra 3 processor,  a full HD 1920 x1200 IPS display, dual speakers, and a 8 Megapixel camera. On the outside it is sporting a faux brushed metal back cover, HDMI out, Micro USB, full USB, data SIM card slot (possible 4g?) and an SD card slot.

The IdeaTab was sporting ICS, which was something I was pleased to [...]

INQ Abandons the “Facebook Phone” in Favor of Android 4.0

by: LucianJanuary 6, 2012

I never thought the “Facebook phone” idea will catch on, because I don’t think Facebook is “enough of a service” to warrant making a whole phone around it. Plus, this was most likely a push from Facebook than anything else, which means it didn’t really come into the market in a natural way, and the market rejected it.

The “INQ Cloud Q” Facebook phone apparently wasn’t very successful in the market, and neither were some of the Facebook phones of HTC. So this idea is pretty much dead now. Plus, HTC needs to do a whole lot more if they want to get back on track. Making a “Facebook phone” is not exactly [...]

How to Install Android 4.0.1 ICS on the Nook Color Using CyanogenMod 9

by: Ken EastJanuary 5, 2012

Pump some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich into your Nook Color and check out how it will perform. Thanks to developers at XDA Developers, you can now install on your Nook Color a preview version of CyanogenMod 9, which is based on Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Since this is a preview build of CyanogenMod 9, it is not yet stable enough to be used for daily operation. So, as early as this point, if you are unsure about what you’re getting into, or if you have little experience with Android hacks (or none at all), it may be good advice for you to proceed with extreme caution–or at least ask for assistance from someone who has more experience.

As far [...]

How to Install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the Motorola Droid 2 Global

by: Paul NuñalJanuary 4, 2012

Proud owners of the Motorola DROID 2 are in for an awesome New Year’s treat, as a team of Android developers is  working on bringing the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the DROID 2. As of today, the early build of the popular CyanogenMod 9 (based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) has been released for the Motorola DROID 2 Global.

Featuring a 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 processor, the Droid 2 Global definitely cements the rumor that even older single-core devices can keep up with Android’s latest version. Released way back in late 2010, the Droid 2 Global is a decent device with a physical keyboard and scratch-resistant display (thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass that it [...]

How to Install Android 4.0.3 ICS on the Galaxy Tab 8.9

by: Carl ParkerJanuary 4, 2012

Until the Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets an official, stable release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Galaxy Tab 8.9 users have an option of trying out an unofficial alpha build of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. A team of coders from XDA Developers has put together a ROM which gives many users a taste of what it would be like to run ICS on their Galaxy Tab 8.9.

Before you get too excited about this preview, there are a few snags that are worth mentioning. This release is quite buggy. Some of the features that don’t work are the camera, 3G, YouTube HD videos, and Google Voice Search. Wi-Fi, however, can be used, as well as GPS and Bluetooth. If you’re willing to [...]

How to Enable Facebook Contact Sync in Ice Cream Sandwich

by: Paul NuñalJanuary 3, 2012

Many people just love the way their list of contacts is brightly lit with photos from their contacts’ Facebook accounts. If you have hundreds of contacts on your list, seeing photos of your contacts can actually help you find contact information more easily.

Synchronization has always been an integral part of Android. From calendar, contacts, weather, to Facebook friends, everything is automated and information is wirelessly synced with your phone. In Android 2.3 Gingerbread, enabling Facebook sync was a rather straightforward and uncomplicated process. Just launch the app, choose to sync all contacts, and you’re good to go.

The case is different in [...]
