finally coming from T-Mobile this week - tomorrow, in fact. But PCMag spotted a frustrating caveat in the official support document: you won't be able to use the "4G Hotspot" function for free anymore. Users who wish to share their connection will have to fork over $14.95 a month for the official tethering plan, allowing them to "officially" use the WiFi hotspot or USB data tether.

HTC Sensation 4G to Android 4.0 on May 16th, just two days from now. They also stated that the newer Amaze 4G would be getting its own update "in the coming weeks". We'd previously heard that it was scheduled for mid-June.
Spectrum is getting an update to its Gingerbread software, rolling out as of now. If you're rocking the Verizon-branded version of the LG Optimus LTE, check your settings menu for an over-the-air update. Those who don't should get a pop-up notification sometime within the next week or so. Even if it isn't the frozen goodness that everyone wants, there's enough here to make it worth your while for a lengthy 127 megabyte download. In addition to the usual speed and stability improvements, a critical flaw in the WiFi scanning which caused numerous force-closes has been fixed. Other persistent problems like incorrect calendar notifications, a faster browser APK and smoother search. Of course, the pack-in software gets an overhaul as well. Apps like VZ Navigator (seriously, why does any carrier include a navigation app on an Android device?) NFL Mobile and Verizon Video all get manual updates. Still, the list of bug fixes should rule out any problems with Verizon and LG's bloatware. Have fun, Spectrum owners - and remember that LG should have an upgrade to ICS. Eventually.

Google Play Store up to version 3.15.19. There's no changelog and no noticeable change from previous versions, so we wouldn't be in a hurry to force update your phone or tablet. Everyone in the US at the very least should be getting the update over the next couple of days, but if you must, you can download and install it here.
Eee Pad Slider SL101 would be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich today. So if you're reading this on a QWERTY-packing ASUS tablet, check your Settings menu for an update and enjoy a tasty software treat, compliments of the manufacturer. The build version is v22.214.171.124.
Samsung Galaxy Note owner jealous of the international model's shiny new official Ice Cream Sandwich update, you can take solace in yet another Android 4.0 leak for the American version. BriefMobile got their hands on the official software and posted it for download. If you're running the older version, you may want to upgrade: the newer ROM brings significant bug fixes, though it's far from perfect.
added features to the Android client for Google Maps. The update brings integration with the Google Offers deal program, as well as navigation for those sparse areas where Google has mapped out the interior of buildings. The latter is only available for the US and Japan at the moment. Lastly, they've modified the Street View function to provide 360-degree panoramic views of the inside of stores and other venues.
A generous XDA member has posted the Android 4.0 ROM for the HTC EVO 3D, straight from the source and ready for flashing. This particulate software build is intended for Virgin Mobile's US version of the phone, but it will work with The Now Network as well.
Rezound get a leaked official Ice Cream Sandwich build, but it's been so long that another is apparently ready as well. The latest Android 4.0 version is build 3.13.605.7, and the folks over at Android Police have hosted it for download. Unfortunately there are a few issues for would-be flashers: you'll need a stock ROM and a locked bootloader or an S-OFF device. Those of you who used HTC's official bootloader unlock will have to sit tight or find a ROM Update Utility (RUU).
