If you weren’t confused enough with LG’s much too big new line-up of smartphones and the pretty hectic branding that came with it, there’s a new gadget name you should write down – the Optimus LTE 3.
Good news, serial flashers — if you’ve been waiting to get a taste of CyanogenMod 10.1, you can now download the nightly builds of the Android 4.2-based custom ROM for the LG Nitro HD and Optimus LTE.
Is it hot in here or is it just LG that’s feeling the heat of a backlash from disgruntled customers who aren’t getting the promised Android 4.0 update for their devices? Whatever is that they’re doing, it’s apparently working, as LG – the Singapore office, at least – has taken to Facebook to announce the coming of Ice Cream Sandwich for several models.
LG manages to sell 5 million LTE devices in total and it’s seeing accelerated growth with 1 million being sold in the month of July. That doesn’t help them surpass their arch-rival, Samsung, though, and they need to work a lot harder to do that.
Owners of Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 may want to read the news sitting down, for Telus has once again bailed out on its initial words to bring Android 4.0 ICS to the two tablets. The carrier has just updated the ICS upgrade schedule for the umpteenth time, bringing along the not so thrilling news.
In a perfect world, every Android handset that meets the specs requirement should always receive the latest flavor of the mobile OS. But the harsh reality is even some high-end models get shunned from the software update that will help prolong their life span. It’s probably why carriers aren’t exactly jumping for joy when handing out the update. One phone that is spared from the disappointment of not receiving the Android 4.0 ICS update is the LG Optimus LTE on Bell Canada.
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…
Are you at your wit’s end waiting for that seemingly never-going-to-happen Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for your Android devices on Telus Mobility? Well, here’s a little ray of sunshine to brighten your days. As reported a while back, Samsung Galaxy S2 X owners have been given their ICS treat. Now Telus has updated its website with a new ICS timeline to let customers know when the latest Android flavor will come to their respective devices. Starting with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray — although the list says that the carrier is still testing out the software, owners of…
LG hasn’t done the greatest job in providing its customers with (official) updates to the latest and greatest Android version, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but, fortunately, things seem to be on the brink of a change. Just a few days after officially announcing three phones as set to get ICS in June, the first of the trio is already reported as receiving the much awaited and anticipated upgrade. The Optimus LTE, one of LG’s most popular smartphones in Korea, is currently getting the OTA update to Android 4.0, as well as a UI bump to the newly released Optimus 3.0 overlay….
So what we have here… Some jolly good news about the arrival of Android 4.0 ICS to a few LG smartphones. Unfortunately, except for the LG Optimus LTE, which is more popularly known in the US as the LG Nitro HD and LG Spectrum, the rest are phones that have not made it outside their native South Korea. According to the LG’s website, the trio will be getting the official ICS treatment starting from June 4. Along with the ICS upgrade, the three phones will be getting an UI makeover in the form of the newly designed Optimus 3.0 overlay, which…
