Sony’s been rather busy lately, releasing a bunch of new phones, as well as a pretty well-received tablet, but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten all about slightly older devices. The Tablet S has never been extremely popular, despite being upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich back in April, but maybe it’s finally time for the 9.4-incher to shine.
The buttery smooth Jelly Bean is on the mind of many ICS users, but while we’re stuck on ICS, we might as well enjoy the Android 4.0 experience at its fullest, right? T-Mobile HTC One S owners are now spoiled with an update that will take their phones from Android 4.0.3 and HTC Sense 4.0 to Android 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1.
The good news that we got this morning is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update has just begun rolling out for the international version of the device. The first country to receive the Galaxy S3 Android 4.1 update is Poland. The updates should be available via Kies and Over the Air. More details after the break.
It did take a while for a software update to be pushed to the myTouch and myTouch Q, but starting today the mid-rangers are treated with a new OTA package to “improve device performance and stability.” The upgrade leaves the handhelds stuck with Android 2.3.6, but ups the devices to build number C85B839SP03.
DeployGate may be the best thing to come along in a while, especially for developers, who have enough struggles keeping Github and Sourceforge projects up and running. Android shines again, as DG is a real-time, OTA service that lets any amount of beta testers try out apps in development phase and DG, in turn, monitors performance.
Transformer Pad TF300T adopters have been spoiled with tasty Jelly Bean treats a few weeks ago, but that doesn’t seem to be enough for the 10-incher. A new OTA software update is being rolled out to the TF300T as we speak, and, while we don’t exactly know what it could possibly upgrade at this point, we have to hand it to Asus for some very solid support work.
Verizon will start rolling out a software update to fix the 4G radio issue on the Galaxy Nexus starting September 14. This is a problem that has been addressed on the leaked Jelly Bean firmware, but we know how Verizon likes to take it sweet time in rolling out those software updates. Fortunately, as per a leaked Best Buy internal memo, a software fix is coming for the defective Galaxy Nexus.
Heads up, Verizon Galaxy S3 owners! A new software update – non JB, before you ask – is heading your way. The update will bring some improvement and fixes that should help make your time with the phone more enjoyable.
T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the latest gadget that has been granted the honor to take the software leap to Android 4.0. The nicest surprise at this ICS rollout is that, although T-Mo’s support page clearly listed it as an optional manual update to happen “via Kies only”, a lot of users are reporting that they’ve gotten it OTA.
