Android users who are still using Gingerbread can rejoice because time is now on their side as Verizon is ready to serve the celebrated Ice Cream Sandwich to HTC and Motorola owners. It was about time for the top-tier devices to be upgraded to the latest Android and in the next couple of weeks, the update will be deployed. If you are the proud owner of a Motorola Xoom tablet, you have a reason to rejoice as you will be among the first people to enjoy ICS on your devices. As soon as April 23, Android 4.0 will become and integrate part with your life, with all the benefits that this operating system has to offer.
Those who own such a tablet are used with preferential treatment as they were among the first to enjoy the notable Honeycomb 3.0 and the transition to Android ICS will not scare them a bit. In order to make sure that everything will run silky smooth, Verizon will start with a small test and install a smaller file soon enough. We have no reasons to expect anything going wrong and before the Motorola Xoom owners will know it, they will be able to brag about using the most advanced operating system.
You don’t have to be among those who own a tablet, because Motorola users who chose Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx were not forgotten. It will take slightly longer for them to receive the update to ICS, but the wheels have been set in motion, and it is only a matter of time. Verizon is not the only carrier that is ready to deploy Ice Cream Sandwich and those who are AT&T clients will get a slice of the cake as well. They plan to serve their customers with the same royal treatment and HTC users are perhaps the ones that should be the happiest of them all.
There are two distinct reasons for them to look forward for May, as HTC One X will hit the stores at the end of the week. May 6th is the day to wait for and those who have the money prepared will take the latest smartphone with 4G capability home and enjoy the benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich. Two things stand out from the crowd when it comes to HTC One X, and this is the fact that it is equipped with Beats by Dre and ships with Sense 4. Love it or hate it, this user interface is here to stay and much to its credit, HTC has done a great job with the latest Sense.
Vanilla Android remains a dream for HTC users, but at least they will enjoy an excellent combination between the mighty Ice Cream Sandwich and the best Sense to date. The smartphone itself is impressive and with a 4.7-inch display sporting a 720p screen, it will be a treat for the eyes. A powerful Tegra 3 1.5 GHz CPU powers this beast and the 8 megapixel rear-facing camera is on-par with anything the rivals can muster.
