Now that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been officially released, it’s only natural to expect phones and tablets to take the leap to the latest OS. However, the Android 4.0 ICS roll out process has been frustratingly slow, and there are still a lot of high-end devices lacking Ice Cream Sandwich.
A bunch of these devices should finally get ICS over the next couple of months in Canada, according to a leaked Bell internal document picked up by the guys at MobileSyrup.com. No less than 6 Bell phones and tablets are scheduled to get Android 4.0 by the end of August, if the document proves to be real, and the first update should take place in just ten short days.
There have been several reports about the arrival of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G to Verizon for quite some time now. But as of today, there’s still no official announcement about its release date. However, we did heard that the pricing for the handset might go as high as $299.99.
We now have some good news trickling in. While we’ll have to wait some more to learn the official release date of the phone, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G might not cost a hefty $299.99 after all.
According to a leaked copy of a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) list from Verizon, the price of the the HTC Droid Incredible 4G will actually be just $149.99 on-contract. According to [...]
The HTC Droid Incredible is surely one fantastic device that features a 1 GHz processor and a 3.7 inch AMOLED touchscreen. What makes this device even more incredible is that the undisputed king of custom ROMs is now made available for the Incredible. The latest unofficial CyanogenMod 9 (CM9) ROM, based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, is now heading to your device courtesy of XDA Developers member drk.hd.
This experimental and unsupported ROM is built from CM9 source code with the Evervolv device tree. Don’t expect bells and whistles beyond what CM9 provides. This ROM brings only pure CyanogenMod 9 to the HTC Droid Incredible.
Though still in [...]
We have seen a lot of ICS custom ROMs popping up on the Internet right now. At times, the scene can become confusing. Most of the developers of these custom ROMs would typically say their ROMs are works in progress, which is great. The hard part though is to determine which one is really the best for your specific device.
We came across yet another custom Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, one exclusively for the HTC Droid Incredible. The ICS-Deck AOKP Ice Cream Sandwich, which is the official name of the ROM, was developed by 72ls1, one of the members of XDA Developers.
The custom ROM is based on the Android Open Kang Project or AOKP. As you can see, it is part of its [...]
For those of you that own the HTC Desire Z, HTC ChaCha, HTC Aria, Droid Incredible, HTC Status, or the T-Mobile G2, it’s time to head over to HTC’s Developer website and unlock the bootloader on these phones.

It’s actually pretty easy as long as you follow the directions HTC gives you on their Developer Portal. If you want to find out if your bootloader is locked or not you can simply power down your device then press the [...]
A photo of a leaked “Radio Shack Launch Checklist” has specified precise dates for the availability of three Android handsets that are also about to be launched on Verizon Wireless.
According to the photo, which was leaked by an anonymous tipster to Droid Life recently, the Samsung Stratosphere will be available by direct fill on RadioShack starting on October 6, and both the Samsung Illusion and the HTC Vigor on October 20.
Another document, also leaked to Droid Life much earlier, had suggested that the HTC Vigor will be released on Verizon Wireless on October 13 and will take on a different name as the HTC DROID Incredible HD (which seems [...]
Very little is currently known about Verizon’s upcoming Android superphone, the HTC Vigor, but last week’s leaked photos of the HTC Vigor on Droid Life tell us a few more things about it. The most revealing is the shot of its contoured back side, which reminds us of an earlier HTC device, the HTC DROID Incredible.
Although no indication of 4G LTE capability is shown on the handset’s photo (since the handset is probably just a test unit), the HTC Vigor will most likely have it. Its rumored high-end specs will be such a sorry waste if the device wouldn’t have 4G LTE.
The handset’s color scheme also suggests the possibility [...]
