Have you had your ICS update? I'm currently trying to get as much detail out of Orange via twitter about HTC Sensation update, whilst my housmate - on O2 - is playing about with new ICS on his Sensation.
In tablet news, the often rumoured Google Nexus Tablet continues to slip its release date. Rumours are that due to hardware changes/price issues/Jelly Bean fly in all directions, but the only concrete evidence is, we'll have to wait a little longer for a true Nexus tablet.
If you cannot wait that long, the high spec'd Asus Transformer Pad 300 (I can see Apple having issues with that name) could be released as early as tomorrow. A $399 tablet that runs ICS, has a quad core processor, 10.1 inch screen and a 10 hour battery life, and should hopefully bring some serious competition to the tablet market.
Although if you need a tablet tomorrow, but don't have $399 to hand, there are plenty of ICS tablets coming that have a much lower price bracket. Although, what you give up in price, you give up in quality.
One of the biggest complaints about tablets for Androids though is the Play market. There's just not enough apps that use the tablets advantages. Android Police have dug around and pulled out there favourite 10 tablet apps from last three weeks.
In app news, photo-colour sucking hipster app Instagram has made it main stream and jumped to Android, much to the annoyance of iOS fans. Instagram fans were dealt another massive blow a few days later when facebook bought instagram for a mind boggling one billion dollars.
Are you a fan of instagram? Are there any other social photo sharing apps you use?
After almost half a year of not being touched, awesome music application Spotify has announced a major overhaul of its Android app. New features include, working.
You can download the preview by scanning or click this code.
Image searching app Google Goggles got quite an impressive update, it can now scan your gallery once you have taken a photo and send you results. No more having to open up Goggles separately, you can do everything from your camera. Although for scanning QR and barcodes, I highly recommend using the app itself, it's still ridiculously fast.
Back to Android Police, and they have listed there top 40 favourite new games from the last two weeks.
I'm playing on Treemaker and Bomberman Vs Zombies.
Have you got a favourite form the list?
Finally, some battery news. HTC have said they have listened to what customers want, and customers want thinner phones, not better battery life. Which is strange, as my HTC Sensation recently decided to have under half a days battery life with no usage. I cursed the phone. I later realised I had a battery hungry setting switched on. Since removing that option my battery has been fine. I know from experience and preference that I wouldn't want a thinner battery that last less than half a day, ever!
Whats your thoughts? Would you give up less pocket space for more surfing time?
