Leave it to the creative cooks working in the kitchen at XDA Developers' forums to come up with a way to serve Android 4.0 'Ice Cream Sandwich' (ICS) on Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet device. A locked bootloader made things more challenging than they had to be, but as with similar recipes, installing ICS on the Nook Tablet is simply a matter sidestepping the locked bootloader altogether. They've figured out how to do that. "So now that we have found the leaking crack in the bootloader and proved its usefullness... others are going to start work on a couple of key projects that I could use a little help on," Android developer Brandon Bennet (nemith) said in a post. CyanogenMod 9 has already... Read more...
If you've been paying attention to Android smartphones lately, you know there's one device that people have been talking about and eagerly anticipating for a few months now. That phone is the Galaxy Nexus. The reason this phone is so hot is because it is the first smartphone in the US to run Android 4.0, better known perhaps as Ice Cream Sandwich. As the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich is designed to offer a single Android platform that will run on both smartphones and tablets. There's another key feature about the Galaxy Nexus: It doesn’t have a lot of customizations or UI tweaks from either Samsung (the phone's manufacturer) or Verizon Wireless (who has the exclusive rights...

If you've been paying attention to Android smartphones lately, you know there's one device that people have been talking about and eagerly anticipating for a few months now. That phone is the Galaxy Nexus. The reason this phone is so hot is because it is the first smartphone in the US to run Android 4.0, better known perhaps as Ice Cream Sandwich. As the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich is designed to offer a single Android platform that will run on both smartphones and tablets. Prior to Android 4.0, users would have one version of Android running on their smartphones and another running on their tablets. Although this may not be a huge issue for some users, it can cause issues... Read more...
If you've been anxiously awaiting the release of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet, you may not have to wait much longer. We already knew that the tablet was scheduled to ship sometime next month, but now we have a slightly more specific date. According to a preorder page on Newegg, the tablet could be released about a week and a half from today on December 8. Newegg's preorder page also shows the price tag of the tablet: $499.00. This price should keep the tablet competitive with other offerings on the market. As you may recall, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime features NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor as well as Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Not long ago, we saw a video showing... Read more...
A Verizon Wireless ad for the Galaxy Nexus has appeared in various locations around the web. This ad suggests the Galaxy Nexus, which will be the first phone to feature Android 4.0, could be available for $199.99, which is $100 less than some of Verizon Wireless’ other high-end smartphones. After clicking on the Learn More button, users are taken to a promotional page for Verizon Wireless that does not list the Galaxy Nexus. It’s hard to say if this price on the ad is a long-time deal or if it will be a special holiday promotion. The ad does appear to be legit however, since it’s appeared at various sites around the web. The ads are run by NetShelter, a premium advertising network... Read more...
If you weren't already excited about the upcoming release of Google's Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) platform or the Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet from Asus, you will be after watching a video of the two working together with NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor. This is the kind of technology threesome that should appeal to anywhere, regardless of which way you swing (yes, we're looking at you, diehard iOS fans). "Google has done a great job on ICS and has made the platform open to the ecosystem and easy to develop on. Thanks to Google’s developer support, NVIDIA’s experienced software team was able to work with Asus to quickly bring up Android 4.0 ICS on the Transformer Prime,"... Read more...
