Until the Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets an official, stable release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Galaxy Tab 8.9 users have an option of trying out an unofficial alpha build of Android 4.0.3 Ice... Cream Sandwich. A team of coders from XDA Developers has put together a ROM which gives many users a taste of what it would be like to run ICS on their Galaxy Tab 8.9.

Before you get too excit...

GalaxyNoteFeature (1)

Yet another great milestone for Samsung, they have now shipped 1 million Galaxy Note’s globally. Today, Samsung announced this great milestone, and the funny thing is the Note isn’t... even available on a single US carrier yet. So imagine how many they can sell once it’s available on AT&T or T-Mobile, without having to import it like we currently have to for the Galaxy Nexus...

Looks like Samsung really doesn’t know what they are going to do with your original Galaxy S phone or your original Galaxy Tab 7-inch. Yesterday, we told you they were re-evaluating getting... ICS on those devices, and now today, we’ve learned that Samsung will update these devices with a “value pack”.

So what exactly is a value pack? From what we understand it will brin...

Korea Economic Daily (KED) is raising their sales forecast for Samsung by 15%, bringing total projected handset sales to 374 million. Of those handsets, 150 million are expected to be smartphones....

Meizu have made a name for themselves in China, and their quality and powerful devices are starting to be acknowledged by the West, too, which means that it might not be long until they start... selling them to Europe and US, as well.

lg-optimus-2x

I’ve been criticizing LG for not going full force on updating their phones to the latest versions of Android. It seems the criticism was well placed because LG still doesn’t look... like they’ve learned their lesson. LG needs to realize they are not even a top 3 player in people’s minds, which means that if they ever want to be in that place they will have to work eve...

ICS-Galaxy-S-Tab

Yes it is said that the entire Galaxy S lineup did not make the ICS cut along with the early Galaxy Tab models. But we all knew that not every Android phone would be able to get an official... update to Ice Cream Sandwich. After all, hardware limitation is the number one reason, and this is no exception.

Samsung explained today exactly why these models will not get ICS support, whic...

nexus-s-upgrade

If you’re looking forward to upgrading your Samsung Nexus S to the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, you’ll have to put this on hold for some time. This is because Google has just... announced that they will be stopping a few of their upgrades. Although the Nexus S is suspected to be the first device upgradable to the new OS, it will most likely happen sooner than we think. Even wi...

If you already have your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, how much are you enjoying the Ice Cream Sandwich OS? Has it been giving you an awesome time already? Well, for those who are planning... on skipping the Galaxy Nexus, there’s more good news for you!
