Rdio Updates App to Support ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’, Sure They Did

According to the makers of popular music subscription services Rdio, their app is now compatible with the newest version of Android aka Ice Cream Sandwich.  Wait, what?  Yeah, the same OS that head Android honcho Andy Rubin, told us wouldn’t be available on handsets until Q4 of this year.  Any chance they have a build early?  It certainly seems highly unlikely that anyone would have it at this time, but I guess you just never know.

It’s our understanding that they have, as of this week, chosen TI to be the processor (more on that in a bit) that’s used to help develop ICS, so seeing an app company with access to it already just seems odd.  Do they know something that we don’t?  Any chance we see builds of it before Q4?  Ehh, not betting on that. Or did they simply mean “Honeycomb” instead of ICS?  Probably.

  • I wanted to create you a very small remark just to say thanks a lot yet again for those incredible things you have discussed on this page. This has been quite particularly generous with you to allow unhampered exactly what a lot of folks could possibly have supplied as an e-book to get some profit for their own end, particularly seeing that you could possibly have tried it if you desired. These advice as well served like a great way to realize that someone else have the same dreams really like my personal own to understand a great deal more when it comes to this problem. Certainly there are millions of more enjoyable opportunities up front for folks who start reading your blog.

    And, it’s gone… #4 now reads “Minor bug fixes.”

    It seems pretty hard to confuse “minor bug fixes” with “updated for Ice Cream Sandwich”…

    From the Android manifest:

    That’s Gingerbread. It’s not even designed for Honeycomb.

    Edit: Nice of you to try to close that tag there Disqus…

    Most likely: They meant Honeycomb
    Next most likely: They got an early build and will be one of the demo apps for the ICS announcement whenever that happens
    Could also be: Either they’re lying or just some stupid marketing ploy

          Ya, it seems they are taking their sweet time… 🙂

      Don’t feel sorry for TBolt owners. They have an embarassingly large list of supported ROMs for their phones and a superb development community. If they really want GB on their phone, it’s there for the taking, and with Sense 3.0 as well. That was the hardest thing for when I moved on to the D3.
