Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich is supposed to be the version of Android that bridged Gingerbread and Honeycomb, allowing both smartphone and tablet users the same experience across the board. Unfortunately Ice Cream Sandwich tablets have yet to be released/updated – at least until now.
If you own the Droid Incredible 2 and you’ve been craving for some Ice Cream Sandwich, the good news is that a beta of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is now available for download from RootzWiki thanks to developer ProTekk.

At the moment the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the only device in the world to officially have Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 on board.

Good news Android tablet owners! It seems that according to Steve “Cyanogen” Kondik himself, it appears that CyanogenMod will be coming to tablets as well, which is great news especially since most manufacturers have only announced official updates for their smartphones, leaving many to wonder about the fate of tablets.We reported last week that CyanogenMod 9 was in the works for smartphones, and like we had mentioned in our post, […]
While Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 has yet to make its way to the rest of us, for some of us on older devices that will not be getting the official Ice Cream Sandwich update, we can experience a part of ICS thanks to an XDA forum member who managed to release the ICS keyboard, giving us a taste of what’s to come.
One of the “perks” that Android has over iOS is its ability to run Flash, so much so that the inclusion of Adobe’s Flash Player is more or less expected on Android. Oddly enough that does not seem to be the case with Google’s latest Android build – Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.
Google has released the tech specs of Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which confirms that the carrier will be getting the handset. If only they would just give us a date already! The tech specs tell us pretty much what we’ve come to expect and know about the device, with some slight modifications which are expected due to Verizon’s model being of the 4G LTE variety.
Sometimes being the first in line doesn’t always pay off, as Alex Ioannu discovered much to his dismay. He was the first in line to get his hand on Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Nexus at the UK launch, but when he got home he discovered that this was not the device that he paid for as his device was loaded up with an older Android 4.0 developer ROM.
This one was a given, but we can’t help but love it when it has been officially confirmed.

Heads up UK residents, if you were hoping to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus come 17th of November, you could be in for a disappointment.

It looks like HTC will be unveiling more than one phone at MWC 2012. Apart from the HTC Edge, it seems that another HTC device has been outed in the form of the HTC Ville.

WIth Google’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich expecting to make its public launch soon, many are asking if the update will be coming to their phones. Naturally some of the newer Android smartphones, like the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid Bionic will be getting the update, but what about some of the older models? We know that the Nexus One will not be getting the update, with Google citing its old […]
Several days ago we reported that a port for Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 had made its way onto the first ever Google Nexus device, the Nexus One. Unfortunately it appeared that the port looked a bit laggy on the Nexus One, but still looked passable, giving those still on the Nexus One device hope that perhaps Google will be releasing an official Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 update for their […]
Despite Sony Ericsson’s plans to bring Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 to their Xperia series of Android smartphones, it looks like there will be one Xperia device that will not be getting the update, and it is none other than the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 device.

Earlier today we reported that the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 SDK was ported over to the Nexus S 4G, but for those still on their Nexus One handsets, it looks like porting Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 over to your device may not be such a ludicrous idea after all, based on the video below.
