HTC Android 4.0 ICS updates list expands

Over at the quietly brilliant manufacturer HTC’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich list expansions are happening everywhere with new phones added to the list and phones already on the list getting updated schedules. This list is what HTC considers its nearly-definitive list of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates and can therefor be trusted about as far as you can trust any list on earth. Notably absent from the list are all of the HTC tablets released to date – you’ll have to go rogue if you want that kind of hardcore underground tasty treat action.

HTC has added quite a few of their 2011 smartphones to the list, with such beasts as the HTC Sensation already grabbing the update before this list expires their expectation for update dates. For example the HTC Sensations expected update range is between March and June of 2012, while our T-Mobile (4G) version has it already. This means you can expect your update for these devices on the list well before HTC promises you’ll have them.

DROID Incredible 2 by HTC : To be determined (by the end of August)
HTC Amaze 4G : May-June
HTC Desire S : June-July
HTC Desire HD : July-August
HTC EVO 3D : June-July
HTC EVO 4G+ : May-June
HTC EVO Design 4G : June-July
HTC Incredible S : June-July
HTC Sensation : March-June
HTC Sensation 4G : March-June
HTC Sensation XE : March-June
HTC Sensation XL : April-Jun
HTC Rezound : June-July
HTC Rhyme : June-July
HTC Thunderbolt : July-August
HTC Velocity 4G : March-June
HTC Vivid : March-June

The folks at HTC have noted specifically that devices with 512MB of ROM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This includes smartphones such as HTC ChaCha, HTC Salsa, HTC Wildfire S, HTC Explorer, and several more older, less awesome phones. HTC has also let the world know that the tablets HTC Flyer, HTC EVO View 4G, and HTC Jetstream will remain on their current version of Android, that being Android 3.0 Honeycomb. HTC is also clear to make the differentiation between support and upgrades:

“Upgrades are not the same thing as ongoing support. Devices not being upgraded to Android 4.0 will still get software improvements, security fixes, and technical support as needed.” – HTC

So don’t fret, those of you with the Facebook phones and the tablets galore, HTC will still help you move forward, just not to a new dessert! Along with this also comes the fact that many phones getting Android 4.0 will not get Sense 4.0, instead working with Sense 3.6, another less needy version of the software. The HTC Sensation is one example of a device that HTC Sense 4.0 cannot exist on due to its requirements for some certain bits of dedicated hardware.

Share — Best games for the iPad (and Android tablets, too)

The iPad and other tablets are amazing gadgets with so many capabilities. There are apps that are revolutionizing medicine, science, art, music and business. But let's be honest: We really love the games.

With tens of thousands of games to choose from, however, it can be hard to separate the winners from the losers. And with game prices ranging from $1 to yikes! you definitely don't want to buy before you try without some trusted guidance.
That's why I'm here for you. My Top 8 games will give you hours of entertainment at home and on the road.

World of Goo ($5, iOS; Android) - This fantastic physics puzzler has long been one of the most downloaded games because of its unique concept - building up complex structures and machines using blobs of goo. You have to work fast, though, because these sticky little guys aren't the most stable of building blocks!

Where's My Water? ($1, iOS; Android) - This game follows in the whimsical tradition of many game apps. The object of the game is to dig holes to fix a sewer alligator's shower. You'll be hooked on the challenging puzzles. Where's My Water? was downloaded more than 1 million times in its first month of release. There's also a free version with limited levels and options.

Flight Control HD ($5, iOS; $3, Android) - Guiding planes and helicopters to a safe landing is as easy as drawing a line to mark their paths. Careful though! It gets harder. Flight Control HD proves that simple games can be the most fun. You'll juggle flight trajectories and keep the helicopters from crashing in this addicting game.

Pool Bar: Online Hustle ($3, iOS; $1.50, Android) - Maybe you need a change of pace from all the fast-paced action and tilting games. Why not turn your tablet into a pool table using Pool Bar: Online Hustle? The ball physics are flawless, and you can move the camera to view the table from any angle. Pool Bar supports two-player interaction and three different game modes.

Battleheart ($3, iOS; Android) - Battleheart is a frenetic dungeon-crawling experience. Recruit medieval warriors and wizards and equip them to rid the kingdom of monsters. Don't be fooled by the cute characters - this game is difficult. You'll have to be strategic and quick-fingered to defeat some of the more difficult beasts.

Anomaly Warzone Earth HD ($4, iOS; Android) - Wonder what it's like to be on the other end of a tower-defense game? Anomaly Warzone Earth turns the tables on the popular genre. Select your attacking forces and plan a route through a heavily fortified alien battleground. A good strategy will get your forces through to the other side. The graphics look great and the re-playability is endless.

Fruit Ninja HD ($3, iOS; Android) - If you don't feel like thinking (and let's be honest, you can't always feel like thinking!) Fruit Ninja HD offers endless, glorious hours of total mental shutdown. Use your finger to slice up fruit as it flies across the screen. Just avoid the bombs and that's it. Get extra points for carving up multiple fruits with one swipe. Fruit Ninja also comes in a free version with limited features.

Sonic CD ($5, iOS; Android) - Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time. Sonic CD, his most critically acclaimed adventure, was released in 1993. Now, almost 20 years later, your favorite spinning blue hedgehog is back and better than ever.

Android 4.0 comes to Galaxy Note now

According to the report from Engadget, Samsung has started to roll out Android 4.0 to Galaxy Notes in Europe finally.

In addition to the usual behind-the-scenes OS stuff, the 319MB heavy update also includes revamped S Note and S Memo apps and widgets. And then there's also a new version of Fudo's beloved TouchWiz.

Most of Galaxy Note owners are waiting for the Ice Cream Sandwich before first quarter in 2012, but Samsung back in March announced that the "premium suite upgrade" that would accompany the Android 4.0 update wouldn't launch until the second quarter. Samsung said that the update would be rolled out worldwide. Now the Europe users get this update first, I think people in the US and around world can get Android 4.0 sooner. Actually, if you have rooted your Note, you can use Android 4.0 now if you didn't want to wait anymore.

Before getting the ICS update, let's enjoy the video from official.

Only 4.9% Of Devices run Android Ice Cream Sandwich

According to the latest report from Google Play Store data, there are only 4.9% of all Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich. But it till be a significant increasing from last month's 2.9% penetration rate while Gingerbread remains running on nearly two-thirds of devices.

Why Android 4.0 get this tiny increase? At first, Google and Samsung have pushed out updates to the Galaxy Nexus S 4G in the U.S., as well as to the Galaxy S II in markets outside the U.S. And then, HTC One X, One S (only for T-Mobile) and One V had released in several markets. These two devices run Android 4.0 out of the box. Last, Sony is providing Android 4.0 updates to several of its Xperia smartphones outside the U.S.

Despite its weak presence in the market, Android 4.0 is set to climb quickly in the coming weeks and months. The HTC One X, in particular, is an outstanding Android smartphone and will surely be a hit with AT&T subscribers. Same applies to the HTC One S for T-Mobile. These are two exciting devices that will expand Android 4.0's footprint. Additionally, Sony is prepared to deliver Android 4.0 to a growing number of its Xperia smartphones in the coming weeks.

We also can't forget the Samsung Galaxy S III, which is being launched May 3 by Samsung. This device also will ship with Android 4.0 and should become available before the end of June. Given how successful Samsung's previous generations of Galaxy devices are, the S III is expected to be a smash hit.

And according to the announcements from HTC, Motorola, LG etc. more and more android phones which produced in 2011, will get update of Android 4.0. I think there must be a android 4.0 boom in the late of 2012. Just hold on and keep waiting.
