We've mentioned it on here before (I think), but a stock version of Android on a smartphone is not a looker. It'd be very difficult to pitch Android on aesthetics against a stock Windows Phone or iPhone because of its utilitarian nature...
If you were hesitant to try out the latest Dropbox beta build we posted a few days ago, then you'll be glad to know that the updated .apk just landed in the Android Market. This brings the version up to a solid 2.0, and with it a lot of fresh features.
Samsung has finally confirmed the release timeframe of Ice Cream Sandwich OS for its range of Galaxy devices. Apart from Galaxy Nexus that already runs Android 4.0, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note will be the first recipients to get the Android 4.0 update, which will be available sometime in Q1 2012.
Samsung has also confirmed other devices like Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy R, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will also receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
Samsung also mentioned that the update availability will vary according to region and carrier requirements.
It's a great day to be an Android geek -- the Ice Cream Sandwich source code is now being pushed to Google's git servers! This is the full release of Android 4.0.1, which is the version that will ship on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Most readers won't need to do anything here except wait for their favorite developer to get things rolling (hi, Beezy!), but those who are technically inclined and feel like cooking up a bit of their own ICS can find new build instructions here at Android's source project pages.
Two things worth noting here -- the code is huge, and it's going to take a couple hours to transfer over. If you try to sync now, you'll get something that is never going to build. As Jean-Baptiste Queru points out, it's best to wait for word from Google that it's finished pushing out. Also, as-is the code will only build for the Galaxy Nexus, and it's going to take some tinkering to get it to build for other phones. Builds for other products will be coming from Google shortly. We're excited, and as soon as the code is done pushing, we'll be at work to get a version built for the Nexus S.
Sony announced that both of their new Android tablets, which go by the names Tablet S and Tablet P, will each be getting a heaping helping of Ice Cream Sandwich; no date was released by Sony as to when we can expect the update to come...
We've come across an internal document from Bell Mobility that's bound to raise the hopes of a few good Canadians. Yes folks, we're talking Ice Cream Sandwich. For [some of] the Samsung Galaxy S lineup. Only new devices need apply, unfortunately.
Plex for Android, a media server/remote app for controlling all of your content, has just been given a pretty major update, bringing it up to version 126.96.36.199 and introducing full support for Ice Cream Sandwich.
