More HTC Phones To Receive Ice Cream Sandwich

More HTC Phones To Receive Ice Cream Sandwich

Well it appears that HTC isn’t done reviewing and determining which devices will be receiving the update to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Today they took to Facebook to announce some additional devices that will be updated to the latest version of Android. Last week they announced a group of devices that were going to be updated, and Motorola announced more devices of its own this week. As much as we like to see phone makers announcing that they will be updating their devices, we do wish they’d tell us when we’ll be getting the latest and greatest.

Todays news from HTC confirms that they will be updating the Rezound, the DROID Incredible 2, the HTC Thunderbolt and the HTC Rhyme. Also HTC will be updating the HTC Raider, for Rogers and Bell networks.

It’s nice to see HTC finally acknowledge the Thunderbolt especially considering it was the first 4G LTE phone for Verizon and a lot of people jumped on the opportunity to purchase it (cough cough, me) so knowing that it’s on the upgrade path is good news. Interesting to see the Rhyme on the list, mostly because it’s a funny purple phone marketed towards “women” the others on the list are pretty much straight forward.

So what do you think are you happy with the additions to the list? Is your device now on the list?

Motorola Updates ICS Device List And Timing – Pisses More People Off

Motorola Updates ICS Device List And Timing – Pisses More People Off

Today Motorola has updated their blog and ICS page with new devices that will be receiving updates to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). On top of the already known devices like the XOOM and XYBoards Motorola will also be updated the Droid Bionic, the RAZR (entire line up) the Droid 4, the Photon 4G, the Atrix 4G, the Atrix 2 and the Electrify. All of this is great news especially if you recently purchased a RAZR or one of the just released Droid 4′s.

The bad news is their update schedule is very vague and very distant. We’re talking Q3 2012 for phones like the Atrix and the Photon. Some of the reason behind the really long timelines is carrier specific, especially when it comes to Verizon. Motorola and Google haven’t been able to updated the XOOM 3G/4G which is a GED (Google experience device) because of Verizons testing and restrictions. The Droid family from the Bionic on is all more than capable of running ICS, Google and Motorola know this and are pushing the devices as such, but with Verizon in the loop testing and reviewing all the software updates users have to wait to get an official build.

Things like this force users to root their devices just to get the latest software on their devices, which just makes for angry users and angry carriers. Hopefully Motorola & Verizon can work something out to expedite these timelines, for all our sakes.

European Commission Approves Google's Motorola Acquisition

European Commission Approves Google's Motorola Acquisition

It’s official the European Commission has approved Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility. In a release from Google they state “We’re happy that today the European Commission approved our proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility, which we announced in August.”

With the European Commissions approval of the acquisition the only remaining hurdle is the US regulation which is expected to be resolved this week as well (presumably with the same outcome).

Google has made it’s intentions very clear with the Motorola Mobility purchase from the beginning, this is a patent portfolio play and Google has repeated that it is not going to take over and produce its own hardware. Motorola Mobility will still operate as a separate entity within Google and they will not receive preferential treatment with software releases or updates.

This acquisition is good and bad news for a lot of hardware makers in the market, some happy that Google now has more patents to protect the Android eco-system, some scared that Google will begin producing its own hardware. Either way this plays out it is a good thing for Android and a good thing for Google, how it affects everyone else is up in the air.

PSA: Motorola DROID 4 Now Available From Verizon

PSA: Motorola DROID 4 Now Available From Verizon

Quick Friday morning PSA, the Motorola DROID 4 is now available from Verizon Wireless for $199.99 on a new two-year contract ($549.99 full retail). For those of you keeping score at home, this is Motorolas 4G LTE qwerty packing big brother to the DROID RAZR. It sports a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 4″ qHD display, Gorilla Glass and water-repellent nanocoating.

If you’re in line for an update this is a solid choice especially if you’re one of those folks that hasn’t made the complete jump to full touch screen phones. Motorola has already said that this device will be updated to ICS so the fact that it comes out of the box with Android 2.3.5 shouldn’t scare you away. The only thing hat I don’t like about this is that they decided to go with the 1785 mAH battery instead of the larger 3300 mAH batter from the DROID RAZR MAXX, but they do still say you’ll get 12.5 hours of use out of this battery.

Droid RAZR MAXX Now Available From Verizon Wireless

Today Verizon launched the Droid RAZR MAXX by Motorola, which amazingly means, that Verizon launched a device on time! The RAZR MAXX is the enhanced version of the initial Droid RAZR increasing specifically the battery from 1780mAH to 3300mAH and promising 21.5 hours of talk time. The increased batter size only increases the thickness of the device from 7.1mm to 8.99mm making it still a ridiculously thin device. The phone carries all of the same benefits of the original Droid RAZR including Gorilla Glass, Kevlar backing, water-repellent nano-coating and 8MP camera. Oddly now the regular Droid RAZR is available in three color choices but the RAZR MAXX is only available in black.

Motorola and Verizon are also touting this as the first 4G LTE phone to last all day and night, which has been one of the major complaints of recent smart phones especially with 4G LTE.  The phone will run you $299.99 on a new 2 year contract, and has cause the beginning of the end of life cycle for the initial Droid RAZR.
