HTC Desire S ICS


According to HTC, the HTC ThunderBolt and the HTC Desire S will both get the Android 4.0.3 ICS Update before the End of this month (August,2012). The HTC ThunderBolt was one of those models that was on the cusp, so this is obviously good news for the owners.




Recently, HTC explained why some models, like the HTC Desire HD, will not be joining the Ice Cream Sandwich club even though it is very closely related to the HTC ThunderBolt. Also the Update won't be released to all users in the same day, Some uses will have to wait till early september to get the update according to their region. Here is the Official statement from HTC:

"We're still working on getting the updates ready. We expect to have updates issues [sic] by the end of August for all devices that have been announced." - HTC

Now that the HTC Vivid is starting to see its promised Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, which was promised to land in the coming weeks when the HTC One handsets were unveiled, The Update brings Android 4.0.3 latest ICS build along with HTC Sense 3.6 onboard not Sense 4.0.

HTC Vivid

HTC Sense 3.6 offers some of the enhancements and features of the Sense 4.0 user interface, but it is not quite as polished in the visual presentation department. Nevertheless, if it is just like the recent Android 4.0update for the Sensation, which we managed to get a preview of very recently, it should no doubt still keep handset owners very happy.

You can initiate the Update process by simply dialing *#*#682#*#* on your Vivid.

HTC Ville

The prevoiously-rumored HTC Ville with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be heading to T-Mobile. Upcoming announcements are expected for the HTC Ville, HTC Edge, and a new feature called HTC Family.

We have recently seen the HTC Ville in a leaked press image, which revealed an ultra-slim smartphone said to measure less than 8mm thin. It is expected to feature a 4.3-inch qHD display, running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor. HSPA+ connectivity, Beats Audio, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p, are all expected to be in tow.

HTC Edge

HTC Start Sending Invitations to its next major event and it will take place on February 26. Look like HTC will announce its new smartphones the day before the MWC 2012 starts.


Perhaps HTC really has something special for the MWC this year. It may be the rumored Android ICS powered HTC Edge with a 720p screen and a quad-core CPU, it will be the first Quad-core Android phone for HTC.

HTC Ville

The HTC Ville rumored back at the end of November, it will supposedly be one of HTC upcoming devices expected at MWC alongside the HTC Edge.

The HTC Ville is allegedly featured in the video below. You can notice straight from the beginning that the phone is very slim, as the Ville is expected to be one of HTC slimmest phones, measuring less than eight millimeters in thickness.

Moving on to the front of the device you can see not four, but three buttons on the bottom, as we learned would be the case for future HTC ICS phones alongside HTC Sense 4.0.

HTC Primo

The HTC Primo will be targeted as a mid-range Android smartphone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, it seems that HTC will be moving to make its premium audio experience with Beats Audio Integration, more widely available and the mid-range Primo will be bundled with Beats Audio.

The latest image of the HTC Primo depicts a device with a 3.7-inch screen without any Android navigation keys. Using onscreen navigation keys instead. The device will feature Gorilla Glass but it is unclear if this will be the new Gorilla Glass 2 screens that were introduced at CES 2012. The phone will have a dual-core 1.0 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 512 MB RAM, and rear-facing 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture.

The wait is almost over for the owners of the original Sensation, the Sensation XE and the Sensation XL. The Sensation and Sensation XE will get the ICS treatment by the end of March, while the XL update will follow shortly after.

Some Photos leaked today of an unannounced HTC Android Device. However, The Device looks much like the Incredible 2, so it may be called the Incredible 3, This device has LTE-support and its heading to Verizon with ICS and Dual-core processor on board.


The device has a 1.2GHz Dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, an 8MP Camera and a VGA front one. It has an AMOLED display instead of the HTC traditional S-LCD, LTE Support, Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich and features the latest HTC Sense UI 4.0. We can Expect an Announcement for this device during the MWC.

HTC Sensation

We are already aware that HTC official roll-out for ICS for all new HTC Devices should be coming by Mid-March. However, those who have an HTC Sensation or Sensation XE variant and located in Europe will be able to taste this upgrade ahead of the pack.

This would probably upset HTC users located in the US and other regions. For those of you lucky enough to fit both of these criteria (Having s Sensation and located on Europe), that means you get the ICS Upgrade sooner than most other users. probably you will get it this Month!

Unfortunately, HTC did not yet disclosed any further information concerning how or who will gain access to this exclusive club.

Sensation White


This Month, HTC plans to update the Sensation family XE/XL/White, HTC will deliver the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 3.6 ( Screenshots below ) to all Sensation family devices instead of HTC sense 4.0 as it will remain exclusive to the HTC One Family.

Sense 3.6

This is disappointing news for Sensation owners, though Sense 3.6 at least offers some of the same features as 4.0. HTC has confirmed that not all of its phones will be seeing Sense 4.0, but it remains committed to bring "as many of the enhancements as possible" to its phones. HTC comment on this :

"HTC Sense brings a variety of new software enhancements to HTC One, some of which utilize the latest hardware innovations, meaning not all functionality can be introduced to older HTC Devices. With that said, we are looking to bring a Sense 4 software update that includes as many of the enhancements as possible to a variety of our new devices."

Reports from the XDA Forums confirms that HTC is rolling-out the ICS 4.0.3 Update OTA to HTC Sensation XE with HTC Sense 3.6.


So far, we have received confirmation of the Android ICS 4.0.3 update being seeded to Sensation XE units in Germany and the Nordic countries, but we expect the rest of Europe to follow soon. Global availability is seems to be very soon.


You can check if the update is available for your region under Software Updates in the Settings menu. Keep in mind that the update requires a download of a file nearly 300MB in size, so you better use a Wi-Fi connection for the update.

The Verizon-branded HTC Rezound was among the first Android smartphones to come with a 720p HD screen, but up until now that screen showed the somewhat dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread. This finally starts changing today as HTC and Verizon are rolling out the long-awaited update to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Here the Update Change-log :

  • Launch Bar to drag apps, shortcuts, and folders on home screen.
  • Swipe away specific notifications or access notification drawer from lock screen.
  • Face Unlock.
  • Data monitoring warnings and caps.
  • Swipe to multitask and switch between apps.
  • Improved voice input for speech to text.
  • Enabled Wireless Alerting system.
  • Improved Mobile Hotspot feature.

Sensation ICS Sense 3.6 Update

Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 update is already available for the HTC Sensation and Sensation XE smartphones. The new ROM is about 300MB in size and we suggest doing a backup before applying it.



ICS has been available in Germany and the Nordic region since March, while Malaysian users also got the update two weeks ago.

Since the beginning of April users from the UK, France and the Netherlands have reported getting the ICS update. We assume that more countries will be joining this list in the upcoming days. We can also confirm Sensations in Pakistan are being updated as well, so the update rollout should continue in Asia as well.

UPDATE! 18,April


1.28 Firmware


HTC One X Firmware 1.28 is Now Available worldwide addressing Wifi bug and battery life Improvements, Middle-East region also got Arabic Support along with the Update too.



The HTC One X has a power management problem according to some developers over the XDA forum who are wooing on creating custom ROMs. The problem is that an NVIDIA power control app known as "NvCPLSvc.apk" was misplaced in the /system/bin folder, rather than its proper location in /system/app.



The Developer "mike 1986" posted an unofficial fix that puts the APK in the proper location. The problem involves Tegra 3 power management controls and is obviously only on the international variant of the model, which comes equipped with the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor under the hood.


The incorrect APK placement is costing the HTC One X user 10% to 20% of his battery life. The fix that was posted on the Xda forum claimed to recapture that missing battery life. If you want to try the fix on your One X head to the source link below. We suggest to wait until the One X Firmware 1.28 release, as it will address all battery issues, including this bug too.



HTC rezound alresy got an ICS RC-1 back in March, This new leak is version 3.13.605.7 RC-2 (the one from March was 3.11.605.22) and also includes a new radio baseband. Keep in mind that this is still not official but a BETA testing ROM before the actual release , so there is always the possibility that it may still contain bugs and damage your phone. But those of you who are feeling adventurous can give it a try.

Sensation XL ICs update

HTC Sensation XL Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 Update is currently Rolling-out to all unlocked Sensation XL devices.

Sensation XL ICS Update

As you can notice from the screenshots above, the smartphone gets updated to ICS version 4.0.3 along with HTC Sense 3.6. That's pretty nice treatment for a device, whose hardware is a bit far from being cutting edge even by last year's standards.

To Update, Connect you XL device to Wifi and you will get a System Update Notification, Click Update and ENJOY!



Amazon is one of the first retailers that come to mind. For example, take the HTC EVO 4G LTE it launched on Sprint less then a month ago for $200 on contract, yet Amazon is now willing to sell you one for only $130. The offer is valid for new Sprint subscribers, however, with an upgrade for existing customers costing $150. Still, the deal seems pretty good considering what you get in exchange.

HTC Desire HD


Dear Owners of the HTC Desire HD or Inspire 4G (carreir version of the Desire HD), We have some Bad News for you, The Android 4.0 ICS update for your phones has been canceled by HTC. The information came from an updated document for Canadian carrier TELUS which shows that HTC had canceled the update because of poor device performance during testing.



Looking at the specs, this previous flagship device does have 768MB of RAM, but only a single-core 1 GHz processor. For HTC Desire HD users, it might seem disappointing but it is much better to have a device running Android 2.3 smoothly than one having Android 4.0 but with many lags.




ICS Desire HD

The Official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for HTC Desire HD has been CANCELED. Sadly, HTC have officially removed the 2010 Android flag-ship device, Desire HD, from the official list of devices that was scheduled to get the ICS Update due to this year (list Photo below).




Here is HTC's official Statement regarding this Matter:


"After extensive testing, we've determined that the current version of HTC Sense with Android provides customers with the best experience on the HTC Desire HD. When we consider new versions of software, we weigh a number of factors, but ultimately the customer experience on the product is the deciding factor. We apologize for any confusion this change may have caused our customers."




Desire HD no ICS


We reported before that the Official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for HTC Desire HD has been CANCELED. Today, HTC Explains even more details about why the company decided not to push the Ics cream sandwich update to the HTC Desire HD and its other carrier variants (Inspire 4G).

HTC said it was sorry to all HTC Desire HD owners on its latest Statement regarding this matter :

"We've heard your feedback on our decision not to update the HTC Desire HD to Android 4.0. We completely understand that this is a controversial decision.

For more background, due to how storage on the HTC Desire HD is partitioned - and the larger size of Android 4.0 - it would require re-partitioning device storage and overwriting user data in order to install this update. While technically advanced users might find this solution acceptable, the majority of customers would not. We also considered ways to reduce the overall size of the software package, but this would impact features and functionality that customers are currently using. Even after installing the update, there were other technical limitations which we felt negatively impacted the user experience.

We believe an update should always improve the user experience and carefully evaluate each update based on this criteria. While we are very aware of the disappointment from this decision, we believe the impact to user experience was too great. We recognize this is a change from our previous statement and for that we're truly sorry." - HTC

Android Desktop Computer

Did you ever thought about using your Android Smartphone as your Desktop PC ?

Well, Christian Cantrell did thought about it. Cantrell posted an 8 min Video on his Youtube channel showing how he used his Samsung Galaxy Nexus as a Desktop PC with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.1 (Not rooted) with some cables (that you may already have!) which will only cost you about $20-40 ONLY.

Android Desktop

Cantrell showed that with only some cables and a little experience can make a useable Android-Desktop Computer with a big screen, Android devices Nowadays have enough CPU and RAM to do this, Here is the Stuff that Cantrell used to create the Android Computer:



  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Not-Rooted)
  • LCD Screen
  • MHL cable for the Galaxy Nexus (for Display)
  • MicroUSB Cable with a USB Hub
  • 3.5mm Cable for Sound output
  • Galaxy Nexus Charger to charge the phone while using
  • Keyboard (wireless)
  • Trackpad OR Mouse (wireless)

Chrome for Android

Ice Cream Sandwich Software buttons

He also showed how useful is the Ice Cream Sandwich Software Buttons as he no longer need to touch his phone, He can simply use his trackpad or mouse to click on the buttons which appear on the right-side of the screen as you can see on the screenshot above. So you have sound-output, Display-output, Wireless control, wifi ,Internet access and your phone is charging at the same time.

The popular free call making and SMS sending Viber for Android has received the long-waited update for Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 devices.

Not only the update allows Viber to work properly on Ice Cream Sandwich devices, but also brings some bug fixes and new features to the table.

Viber ICS

One of the most important ones is a new Voice engine, which should improve voice quality over the previous versions. The app can now even detect your location with a single tap and share it with your messages. Also Viber can now send and receive photos and supports landscape mode for messages, if you desire a more thumb-able keyboard to tap. And last but not least, you can now see when somebody is actually typing you tanks to a typing indicator.

Android ICS 4.0.3 released first on the Galaxy Nexus, All manufactures promise to update their latest phones from Gingerbread to ICS. Now, most major phone manufacturers including Asus, Samsung and Sony have finished the testing and certification and are ready to update device to ICS very soon.

Phone makers have not yet updated their devices to the latest Android despite the fact that the 4.0.x version was released in November of last year. That is nearly a five month gap in which Gingerbread continues to be the dominant Android version on high-end handsets on the platform.

And if the rumors are true, Android 5.0 JB should make fragmentation even worse as the publication expects the new version to arrive as early as May or June. Internally, this is allegedly slowing down phone manufacturers with ICS updates as they try to prepare for 5.0.

Samsung has already pushed an ICS update for its Galaxy S II, and next in line are the Galaxy Tab 8.9, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Note. Asus has also updated its original Transformer, and Sony recently announced plans to bump up the Android versions of the Tablet P and Tablet S by end-April.

HTC One X Update


The first official HTC One X update is now rolling out for the SIM-free unlocked units in Europe, Egypt and Middle-East.



The upgrade is a about 30MB download and it addresses a few issues with the battery, the automatic brightness levels and the on-screen menu key in some apps along with the Wifi bug fix. There are probably other minor fixes and optimizations under the hood, but no specifics were provided.



After the update your Android OS will remain on the 4.0.3 version, but the actual phone firmware version will jump to 1.28.401.9.




Android Updates are very slow in releasing especially the latest update to Ice Cream Sandwhich, The technical lead developer on the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru, posts a post on Google+ saying that he believes the slow update rate many Android users have had to endure is very reasonable. He said on his Google+ post:


"This is actually a very reasonable time, since under the hood Ice Cream Sandwich is quite different from Honeycomb (and upgrades from Gingerbread are likely to take longer as those differences are huge),"

He Also added:

"...some variants of the Google-engineered flagship devices still haven't received Ice Cream Sandwich (or are stuck with older versions of Ice Cream Sandwich) because of delays introduced by operator approvals."





Google has updated the Android distribution figures on its developer website. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich user base has grown to 7.1%, up from the 2.9% back on April,2012.



The sharp growth is likely due to the launch of new Android 4.0 devices such as the HTC One series phones, as well as several high-end devices receiving the Android 4.0 update. With even more Android 4.0 devices on their way and more updates planned for current devices, this number will continue to rise.

Last week, We announced that Samsung will launch a VPU or a Value Update package that will for the Galaxy S I9000 Users, that will Offer them the same experience of the ICS but in Gingerbread (browser, multi-tasking... etc) instead of the CORE ICS 4.0.1 OS Update which samsung said it "could not run smoothly on the galaxy s older hardware, and will not deliver a good experience to the user".


However, a Samsung spokesperson today has said that the company will NOT offer the (VPU) update either due to the hardware specifications of the older Galaxy devices, in that they are limited to and fully optimized for the Gingerbread experience only. The news will frustrate Galaxy S owners that had gotten their hopes up following recent reports, They won't get the ICS nor the VPU, with many still on a two-year contract, they were hoping to see new features on the device.

Galaxy Tab 11.6

We all saw the Apple New iPad, it has a silly name (new iPad), but a Great resolutionary Retina screen with ( 2048 x 1536 ) pixels, Samsung will not stand-still in front of this, Rumor is going around about a Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6" with 2560 x 1600 screen resolution with 260ppi which is very close to the new iPad screen but a little bit bigger in the size.

This rumor is based on an unnamed source close to the matter, who confirmed to Pocket-lint that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6 is the upcoming ICS tablet and samsung may show it on the SXSW event on Texas today, but Unfortunately Samsung did not reveal it at the event.

On the surface, those rumors seem plausible Samsung would like nothing better than getting one back at Apple and topping their latest slate with a more attractive offering. If previous rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy Tab 11.6 will feature an Exynos 5250 chipset with a 2GHz dual-core CPU using of the new power-efficient, 32nm generation along with a 2GB RAM.

But you might as well stop the celebration as Samsung is sobering everyone up with the information that the news was a mistake. Samsung had even spread the news with a tweet in the first place, Samsung then make a statement.

"The 10 March Date for Galaxy S II ICS release was a Mistake and we apologize," Samsung

Samsung also added, "ICS update release date is still not settled and it will be announced at a later point in time".

Samsung tomorrow Tweet

After all, Samsung has said that coming up with an update for all of the US carriers that offer the Samsung Galaxy S II is causing the delay in disseminating the update for Stateside Galaxy S II users. And now that no one is receiving the update on March 10th, US users of the model can admit that they were a little bit jealous of their overseas brethren.

Motorola Razr UPDATING!

Apparently, the hold-up was due to T-Mobile refused to sign-off on the update because they wanted to customize the ROM on the phone to their liking, something that Google did not allow as Motorola is now owned by Google. Eventually T-Mobile relented and signed the update so now everyone can get their hands on it.

Motorola ICS

Motorola schedule gave a broad Q2 target for the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola RAZR. Some users have reported that they have received a test update from Motorola, one was even kind enough to share the update with the rest of the droidrzr forums.

The update itself is, well, ICS. Once you read the changelog below, you will understand that this is as stock as it gets, which is a good thing. The updated browser, swiping of notifications and tasks, new People/Gallery/Camera apps, and improved typing and spell-checking are all included.

An ICS ROM for the GSM version of the Motorola RAZR has leaked online that gives a glimpse of what we could expect later during the year when it starts rolling out officially.


At first glance it looks almost stock but that is mostly because it is still in the developmental stage and there is a lot of work left to be done on it. only visible changes are a new lock screen that features four custom spots where you can drag the lock icon and the option to put the phone on silent or vibration, sorely missing from the stock ICS ROM. Also new is a camera app that is similar to the one on the current Gingerbread ROM for the RAZR.

CES 2012


Fujitsu did not have much to display at the CES 2012. They had only ONE really special device to show, a quad-core Android smartphone running on the latest Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 (photo above).


The phone currently is just a prototype and the specifications could change before it is announced officially at the MWC this year but it seems mighty impressive as it is. For starters it will run on the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, which will take care of all your gaming needs.

This prototype device had a 4.6-inch 720p HD display and a 13.1 MP camera capable of ISO 25,600 sensitivity. The phone will launch duting this year with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 out of the box.

Google Drive

Google Drive is reported to be coming out next week. Today's Android Developers Hangout showcased an app with sharing features, giving us a quick look at the options on the developer's Galaxy Nexus. You can clearly see the leaked triangular logo next to a word "Drive" on the sharing Menu (Photo Above), Also there is a video below much more clear than this photo.


Galaxy Nexus


If this actually is a functional version of Drive, it certainly does not prove the service is coming to the rest of us any time soon. However, it does mean that at least Google Android developers have a version that is more than vaporware, and makes the many rumors about an upcoming launch seem a little more credible.

Google Nexus S

Reports we just got confirm that Google will release the ICS 4.0.3 Update to the Nexus S CDMA, this time its for real and No More delays. The Update should be available in the Upcoming few weeks, Engadget also confirmed that info.

If you own a CDMA version of the Nexus from Samsung, then you probably are all too familiar with the pain of knowing that there is many phones out there that is identical to yours and have the ICS update, but yours is not because its a CDMA version, Don't worry... Google is working on it.

Every year Intel talks the talk about being able to put their chips inside devices as tiny as a smartphone, but this year they are walking the walk with the help of Lenovo. The Chinese personal computer maker may not be known for smartphones on this side of the pond, but in their home country they are quite popular. They have just announced the K800 and say that it will ship in Q2 of this year running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

When it coms to Specifications you are looking at a 1.6 GHz Intel Z2460 on a 4.5 inch 720p resolution display, 8-megapixel camera, and Intel own XMM 6260 radio chipset that supports 21 Mbps 3G HSPA+, quadband EDGE.
