Now that Ice Cream Sandwich has (finally) begun rolling out for the Galaxy S II, Samsung has decided to put together a little guidebook to help its European customers get started. It’s actually more PowerPoint than book, but it’s just as informative as you’d expect, offering a full rundown of everything GT-I9100 users will need to know before making the jump. The folks over at Coolsmartphone were kind enough to put it all into a pocket-sized PDF, so check it out for yourself at the source link below.
After that March 10th mishap, Samsung reaffirmed to us that it’d deliver Android 4.0 for its GT-I9100 Galaxy S II when it was darn good and ready — well folks, the company appears ready. It’s just announced both via Facebook and Twitter that the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade that so many have lusted after is now available and will begin its rollout to users in Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Korea today, and will move onto other markets from there — subject to carrier requirements, of course. Better yet, Samsung has affirmed that its Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy [...]

“In the words of the developer:
Yeah, let’s focus on the negative. Some (but not all) things that DO NOT WORK:
Hardware Video (OMX). As a result, Netflix does not work, YouTube works only only in non-HD videos.
Audio is a mess. The microphone does not work. Work on the current libaudio solution has halted because we will eventually switch to a CAF libaudio.
Camera does not work. The only libcamera.so that we have is from froyo [...]

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has been announced a couple of weeks ago alongside the Google Galaxy Nexus, a smartphone that is manufactured by Samsung and which will be released on store shelves by the end of the next month or to be more specific, on November 16th in the UK.
Before the latest version of Android becomes officially available on the market, we’re spoiled with a bunch of homebrew ROMs that can already be found on the internet for the Google Nexus S among others. Well, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 has now been successfully ported to the Samsung Galaxy S, probably the best-selling Android [...]
Hello there, everyone! It’s time to do another post in our series of comparison posts in which, well, we compare stuff. In this comparison post, ‘stuff’ is the three major mobile operating systems – iOS 5, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango – and it is their feature-list which is compared.
Although, yes, it is a bit unfair to compare two already-released OSes – iOS 5 and WP7 Mango – against an OS that is still somewhat in the making (Ice Cream Sandwich); please keep in mind that this is more of a comparison of features (which, we believe, are final) rather [...]

The company kicked off the event by announcing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which will be the first device to run Ice Cream [...]
Wait no more. Google and Samsung have just made the long-awaited Galaxy Nexus (not longer the Nexus Prime, as we’d once heard) official here in Hong Kong, and the specifications are downright drool-worthy. Those with bantam hands need not apply, as this 4.65-inch behemoth is bound to bring back talk of Sidetalkin’. Naturally, Ice Cream Sandwich is onboard, with Google finally revealing the version number as 4.0. Other specs include an HD Super AMOLED display (1,280 x 720), a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel rear camera (with LED flash), a 1.3 megapixel front-facing cam, 1080p [...]
