Nearly the entire line of Android devices have been listed in one massive post made by Verizon this week detailing which of them will and which of them will not get an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. For those of you wondering why it's Verizon, the carrier, and not the manufacturers of the devices themselves that are announcing this, it's simply because it's Verizon who has to work with the manufacturer to get the update pushed to the devices because each of these devices has a special Verizon-branded build inside them - that meaning apps for the most part - and no manufacturer is free from such a bond. Have a peek if your Verizon-branded device is amongst the lucky to be getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update soon.

Motorola Ice Cream Sandwich updates cut to minimum

If you've got a Motorola device that you plan on keeping for the next couple of years and plan to get it updated to the newest version of Android any time soon, you're may be in for a world of hurt. Though we're not always agreed on if the newest version of a software in the mobile realm is always the best, and certainly all versions of Android are well functioning enough to be satisfied for some people, the list of devices Motorola currently has released and plans to update to Android 4.0 is surprisingly small. Should you have one of the smartphones that've been released by Motorola in the past couple of months - you'll probably want to get a paper bag to yell into.

Motorola US Android 4.0 upgrades unlikely until Q3 2012

Motorola's Ice Cream Sandwich updates for existing devices won't reach US phones and tablets until sometime in Q3 2012, the company has confirmed, with Android 4.0 still mired in planning and evaluation for most eligible models. The DROID RAZR, RAZR MAXX, DROID 4, BIONIC, XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1, and XOOM WiFI + 3G/4G are all in line for Ice Cream Sandwich, but there's likely to be plenty of competition running Android 4.0 natively by the time the new software arrives.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD Accessories Review

Color us surprised when we received a box full of Android-oriented Motorola accessories made for the DROID XYBOARD just days after the release of said device and our review of the 10.1-inch version of it - but don't color us dismissive - while we're already basically decided on the fate of both versions of these tablets for now, their accessories are another story. Everything from a leathery encapsulating case and keyboard to the most versatile HD dock Motorola has ever released for smart devices, this is the box of Verizon-carried official bits you can also purchase when you pick up one or both of the tablets. Have a peek at not only our judgement but hands-on videos galore as well.

Huawei Honor (U8860) Review

Huawei Honor (U8860) Review

When Huawei sent over their new and soon to be released smartphone set to debut in Asia in Q4 called the Huawei Honor (U8860) also known as the Glory, I was expecting another run of the mill Android smartphone for the budget crowd like their previous devices. I couldn't have been more wrong. The Honor offers a 1.4 GHz processor, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, an HDR capable 8 megapixel camera and a huge battery. I quickly realized this was a much better phone than I'd thought. Now that I've had some time with it here's my thoughts.
