Android Other: AT&T Galaxy Note and Galaxy SII Skyrocket Receive ICS, HTC New Tablet, Wallet Fixed on EVO 4G LTE

ICS Rolling out to AT&T Galaxy Note and Galaxy SII Skyrocket Today

We all know the story with Ice Cream Sandwich updates so far, it’s one of the best things that can happen to your phone; as long as your carrier decides you can have it. AT&T has approved ICS updates to their Galaxy Note and their LTE enabled Galaxy SII and the two updates should start rolling out today (or yesterday). The Note upgrade also comes with a Premium Suite of apps that should make the whole phablet a lot more fun to use. You have to download Samsung Kies software, but after that you should be good to go!

Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus Gains AOSP Support, Sprint’s Loses It

There was much rejoicing when we all noticed that Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus was supported under AOSP code again when Jelly Bean launched earlier this week. Unfortunately for the newest G-Nex, Sprint apparently hasn’t provided drivers for the phone to be supported, and if you look under the name toroplus you’ll find no binaries. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be Jelly Bean on this device, just that it’s going to have to take some tweaking from builds from other phones. Let’s hope Sprint gets the hint and gets on-board.

HTC EVO 4G LTE Receives Update to Fix Google Wallet Issues

A couple weeks ago there was a glitch with the EVO 4G LTE that had the very real possibility of breaking your NFC chip and make it unusable until you got a new phone. It scared a few users, rightfully so, with NFC chips, but Google got to work on the problem and has released an OTA to the EVO to fix the problem. The update is also packed full of other bug fixes and security updates, if you haven’t gotten the OTA yet head over to system settings and check for it now.

Sprint Rolling out White EVO 4G LTE Starting July 15

Speaking of the latest EVO, Sprint is following up on the white phone craze starting July 15. For $199.99 you can get Sprint’s version of the One X that will run on the Now Network’s brand new LTE network, whenever it gets to you. We loved the One X when we got our hands on it, and if you have an upgrade available for Sprint, this device should probably be on the top of your list.

HTC Vertex Tablet Gets Benchmarked, 1.3GHz Tegra 3 Packed Inside

There are low rumbles that HTC is trying to jump back into the Android tablet game after the colossal flops of the JetStream and Flyer. A new HTC tablet has been spotted at a few benchmarking websites and have let us in on a bit of information. A Tegra 3 quad-core processor and a 1280×752 resolution are the highlights. HTC has a lot of catching up to in the tablet market but if this is the rumored tablet it’s said to be shipping with a “unique feature” whatever that could be.

    ICS up date broke my mobile hot spot and tether

    The Skyrocket update was available on Kies a few days ago.

    • jpfrasier

      You are right. I wonder if it’s going out via OTA now or if it’s still just kies. I’m rooted and on 4.0.3 so no point in me rushing to update via kies and lose root just to get 4.0.4.

      been on Kies for a week now. updated a skyrocket with it but noticed things like the gallery is still gingerbread layout not what the S3 or nexus has.

  • kixofmyg0t

    I really like the Galaxy Note. Can we get a video overview maybe? Just a thought.

      They did this once before and it seemed like most people didn’t like it. DL, go back to posting on an.droid-life or just get rid of it all together…it doesn’t even have the new layout…

      • mustbepbs

        Uhhh..for US Cellular? You don’t sound very credible.

        • anon

          you expect credibility on a random blog on the internets?

          • mustbepbs

            On a news site that is very credible? Uhh..yeah?

  • Too many rumours of HTC and different devices lately. Seems HTC is due to make an announcement soon of their 2nd half of 2012 offerings.
