Earlier today we heard that T-Mobile has made available an Ice Cream Sandwich build for its Galaxy S2 version that enables NFC/ISIS features on the handset and at the time we wondered when will ISIS be available on the handset given that the three main U.S. carriers backing the Google Wallet mobile payment rival have not officially announced its availability.

According to CNET, Doug Bergeron, CEO of Verifone, “which makes the payment terminals…

HTC Amaze 4G

While many Samsung Android-based smartphones and tablets are still (un)fashionably late to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, HTC is doing its best to keep its customers happy and updated.

T-Mobile’s exclusive device is getting the ICS update right on schedule, as it has been announced for a while, which is yet another reason for HTC and T-Mo customers to be happy with their manufacturer and carrier of choice.
