It was nearly a week ago when we reported that there were a few users who claimed to have started to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system update on their respective Sony Xperia Ion devices, but up till then, there was no official word from AT&T having done so. Well, things have definitely changed – and for the better, I might add, today, where Ice Cream Sandwich is readily available for the masses over at AT&T who are rocking to the Sony Xperia Ion. Better late than never, considering how this is still one step behind in terms of the Android “version count”, where Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the latest and greatest version of the mobile operating system at this point in time.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is touted to make your handset easier to use, and also more powerful than ever before. Just to refresh your memory, some of the new features include an improved browser with better page loading, tabbed browsing, offline reading and desktop mode. Not only that, you will be able to benefit from new lock/unlock features, ranging from the ability to unlock directly to the camera, text messaging, phone dialer, home screen or use Face Unlock. There are other features that accompany the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update as well which you would be able to check out once you’ve updated your device.
