Meanwhile, you should know that Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch, which is what the carriers calls its Galaxy S2 flavor, will soon be getting its ICS fix. A screenshot grabbed by Android Central reveals that the ICS rollout for the…

It’s great if your phone comes with pre-installed applications that you actually use, however most phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch come with bloatware.

You can opt not to remove such unnecessary applications, however they tend to slow down the performance of your device and consume significant storage and RAM. There is now a way to get rid of them–Calkulin’s Bare ROM Converter, an application developed by…
