"Key Lime Pie" may be the next version of Android OS, after "Jelly Bean". Bear in mind, this is still a rumor at this point, and the information comes straight from a tip over at The Verge. Another rumor that followed, is that ASUS could be the manufacturer for the Google Play or 'Nexus' tablet. We had known Google was preparing a "tablet of the highest quality" for some time now, but that's pretty much it.
how Chrome for Android is already the most secure/safe browser on the Android Market. We should see Android devices reach the $70 range by next year. More specifically, he stated "Last year's $400 phone is next year's $100 phone". Apart from the keynote, Google's vice president of engineering for mobile, Hiroshi Lockheimer, hinted for Android 5.0 Jelly Bean to have a fall release instead of the earlier summer rumor. This is somewhat comforting, considering Android 4.0 is finally starting to show up on non-Nexus devices.
stole the show yesterday at Mobile World Congress, as HTC showed off their new 'hero devices' for 2012. All three looked extremely nice, and going back to the aluminum unibody as we saw in the HTC Legend a while back was a nice touch. As you know, HTC will launch two version of the One X, an international version, and one specially designed to take advantage of AT&T's 4G LTE network. It seems Best Buy has already jumped to pre-orders for the device, and it's sure to get some attention.
updated to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) over in Taiwan, so we had figured it would make its way over to the US soon. We're sure of that now, as ASUS recently confirmed it should hit the states tomorrow.
Fujitsu is planning a 13.1MP phone for MWC. Other rumored specs include a rather large 4.6” display and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. It is projected to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), even though three capacitive buttons are present on the only thumbnail we have of the rumored device.
press photos of the Huawei Ascend D1 Q leaked. We should see more of this device at MWC, which is quickly approaching. We've written up an article to sum up what we should expect to see from Mobile World Congress this year, but hopefully we'll run into a few surprises as well. While we had hoped CES would be a bit more innovative than it turned out to be, this is the tech world's chance to redeem themselves - so get ready. Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) has been in the news a bit more lately, and rightfully should be considering its estimated Q2 release. It turns out we could see a WebTop style desktop mode integrated as an optional interface. This will most likely suit devices like the Transformer Prime that take advantage of keyboard attachments. Chrome for Android is set to improve by "leaps and bounds" very soon says Chrome's Senior VP Sundar Pichai. As if the new browser, which is still in Beta, wasn't speedy enough. There still isn't a definite area Pichal suggests will be improved, but rather that users should expect an even better experience. Another application set for an update soon, rather a launch, is Temple Run. The highly anticipated game has let its users know the official announcement will take place on their Facebook page. Any MIUI fans out there? You'll be glad to know it's packed into a retail tablet in Japan. Named Eden Tab, it sports a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16 GB of onboard storage. It packs a 1280x800 pixel resolution into a 7" display, so you'll notice extra sharp images. It will only run at $370, and should start shipping this weekend. MIUI has been successfully ported to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), so there's also a possibility it ships with that version.
Iconia Tab A500 Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet. Over on the Acer New Zealand Facebook page they have announced the A500 tablet should see an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in April. With other Acer tablets already starting to get the latest from Google I'm sure many A500 owners aren't too happy with the news.
the press release, you'll notice it sports a 9.7" display with 1024x768 pixel resolution. It has a great form factor, and will only be 10mm thick. It'll also be ready to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) upon release, but then again that is soon to become the norm.
