Motorola offered details on its Jelly Bean trade up program and updated its Jelly Bean update schedule. The latest generation of Razr devices will get their Jelly Bean fix by the end of the year. Devices like the Atrix HD, Photon Q, or last year’s Droid Razr will be updated to Jelly Bean at an unspecified time.
After officially learning that all US versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will get Jelly Bean “soon”, we all hoped to get automatic prompt messages for downloading a new buttery software package on our super-phones. That hasn’t happened yet, although owners of the US Cellular version of the S3 are getting a (much less significant) update as we speak.
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.
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.
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.
The OTA upgrade won’t bring any ICS treats to your Droid Charge, but, based on the changelog published by Verizon, it will actually be pretty major. An “updated user interface”, as well as a bunch of bug fixes and general performance enhancements are the highlights.
Although we haven’t heard many complaints about the Galaxy S3’s software, or any kind of bugs or glitches, Sammy seems to be pulling all stops to ensure that the users of the super phone are happy with its performance and stability. Less than a month after rolling out the first couple of OTA updates and just a week after issuing a software upgrade specifically for Sprint’s version of the S3, Samsung is pushing out a new update with the usually ambiguous changelog. The fresh software package, reported to weigh in at around 72 MB, is said to “improve stability”, just like the…
Our phones aren’t just for making calls anymore, with the advent of the smartphone introducing the ability to check e-mail, surf the web, watch videos, listen to music and take pictures. Along these lines, we are also heading for a world where our watches aren’t just for telling time anymore. I personally haven’t worn a wristwatch since I got my first cell phone, but if you do then you’ll be interested in the concept of a “smartwatch.” The idea is slowly gaining traction, with Sony’s Smartwatch and the Motorola MOTOACTV being the more popular devices. If you use MOTOACTV, you’ll…
With several high-profile Asus products set to hit the market soon, namely the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity and the Asus Padfone, the Taiwanese havn’t quite forgotten about owners of the Transformer Prime. Mobile Syrup reports that a number of Transformer Prime owners in the US and Canada have received a new OTA update on their quad-core slate. There are also reports that the update has been rolled out in the UK. The new 22.214.171.124 firmware is expected to bring several enhancements to the Prime’s ICS experience. Those who have applied the update on their Transformer Prime said that they are…
