HTC has been awarded a patent for a technology that would let you unlock your smartphone or tablet with your face. However, Face Unlock is already a feature on Android that first appeared on Ice Cream Sandwich. Does this mean a war is brewing among the Android crowd?
Ice Cream Sandwich is pretty swell, but like all Android updates, it's not on all phones. Well guess what? The HTC Vivid is getting the update on AT&T today and other phones will see the update "in the coming months." Here's the full list:
The Acer Iconia A510 is coming. We got some hands-on time with it at CES and we were impressed. A 10.1-inch
screen, a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and Ice Cream Sandwich sounds mighty good, and now you can pre-order one.
If you have an HTC Android phone, you're probably wondering where your Ice Cream Sandwich is. And though Android 4.0 ICS remains an elusive treat for most Android users, it's gotta be a little comforting to know that the update will eventually come to your phone, right? Well, if you have these HTC phones slated to get…
Verizon has finally let a bunch of smartphone and tablet owners exhale, giving up the full list of current devices that will be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. There's 14 devices in all. See if yours made the cut.
Android 4.0—aka Ice Cream Sandwich—is such a lovely and tasteful software update for Android phones that I'd be kicking and crying if my phone didn't have it. Well, it looks like Motorola owners should start kicking and crying because they have a painfully long wait before they even sniff Ice Cream Sandwich. We're…
When we found out about ViewSonic's $170 tablet that runs Android's latest (and definitely greatest) OS, we were more than just a little skeptical. We wanted to believe, but we've been hurt before. After some hands-on time, I can confirm that our dead-inside hearts were dead-on.
Google made good on its IDF keynote promise and announced that is has ported Android 4.0 to Intel's x86 architecture. What does that mean? Could be that Intel tablets are on the horizon, but they still face issues with their chips' power consumption. More speculation is available at Ubergizmo.
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) has been the talk of Android town, and rightfully so: it looks like the most promising version yet. But considering it doesn't require any physical buttons, how will your phone work once it's upgraded?
Google's out with Android 4.0, a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich. Sounds delicious, but what exactly is it?
You ready with your grains of salt? Good, because a supposedly leaked document from Verizon has pegged the much-anticipated Galaxy Nexus to launch on November 10th. That's the good news. The bad news is that it'll run you 300 bones.
I love the way that Google and Samsung are
basically trolling the US tech press by
announcing Ice Cream Sandwich and the first phone to run it—the Nexus Prime Galaxy or whatever—in Hong Kong six days from now, on Oct.
18 at 10PM eastern time.
Once the leaks start they just keep on coming. A Romanian site has scooped up some video of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and more than anything it gives us our first real look at Ice Cream Sandwich.
Samsung is holding an event next week in San Diego and the star of the show is rumored to be the Nexus Prime. Coming along for the ride may be Google which could use this event to launch Android 4.0.
