Although Sony seemed to have not one, but two new flagship phones in store for us this fall, the Xperia V was mostly ignored whereas the T got all the attention. Oh well, that’s what happens when you mess with 007.
One of the reasons why people invest in tablets is to curl up with their device at the end of the day and enjoy some reading. Of course, lugging around a 10-inch tablet isn’t exactly very comfortable, nor is it very natural to look at. Seven-inch tablets, on the other hand, are a whole lot more subtle and can fit into bags and jacket pockets far more easily. Amazon’s latest tablet, the Kindle Fire HD, not only lets you enjoy a good read before bed but also lets you indulge in a bit of movie watching, audio listening, and Web…
Though Panasonic’s second European retreat is just about confirmed, the company hasn’t forgotten about the handful of existing Eluga owners there. Android 4.0 ICS is finally being rolled out to the 4.3-incher, and, while it was long overdue, it should still be met with some excitement.
We don’t know how much of a consolation today’s news will bring you, but we are (reluctantly) glad to inform you that Android 4.0 is now available for the Optimus 3D and 3D Cube. Here’s the thing – the ICS upgrade is up for grabs only in Korea, and we have no idea when and if the rest of the world will get it.
The flip-flopping that LG has done in the past in terms of Android 4.0 updates for the Optimus 2X is well documented by Android Authority. After re-confirming that Ice Cream Sandwich won’t come to the handset, a different branch of the company reported otherwise. Last we heard the software upgrade was already sent via OTA to a Korean version of the phone, the SU660.
There’s been a lot of talk over how slowly Jelly Bean updates are rolling out to Samsung’s top tier Android devices, but one thing that seems to have slipped people’s minds is that Sammy still has some loose ends to tie up from ICS software leaps.
Remember that promise that an LG official made about the Ice Cream Sandwich update heading for the Spectrum real soon? That was hinted back in July. Just when most folks are about to lose faith in Verizon and LG, out pops the announcement that the long awaited software upgrade to Android 4.0 for the LG Spectrum is now ready to be served.
Fresh from serving Ice Cream Sandwich to owners of Motorola Droid Bionic, the streak continues with the Lucid 4G, as Verizon has also announced that the Android 4.0 update will hit the phone starting today. Do note, however, that the upgrade will be pushed out in phases.
Despite the numerous Ice Cream Sandwich firmwares that have leaked over the last couple of months for the Droid Bionic, Motorola – or Verizon – seemingly isn’t yet ready to roll out the official update. Last we checked, Moto said on its website that the Android 4.0 upgrade will still arrive in Q4. Now, there’s more reason to believe that the software bump is about to become a reality.
Though the Atom-based Orange San Diego is by no means a slouch, early adopters were rather puzzled by Intel’s decision to ship it only with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Nevertheless, an update to Ice Cream Sandwich was promised, and it’s finally here.
