How Can You Upgrade Your Android Phone To Ice Cream Sandwich..?

Know your mobile
Are you using some Android phone and looking for brand new release Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich..wait a minute.Consider your budget and manage it with technology advancements.Here we are going to give you the latest update about how you can upgrade your existing android enabled smartphone into Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Don't buy a new Android smartphone unless you know for sure that it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the most significant update to Google's smartphone platform yet, has been available in world markets for a couple of weeks now  on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The Galaxy Nexus isn't available for sale yet in the every part of the world unless you feel like spending a hefty $650 to $750 to have it imported though select online retailers. So,where can you get Android 4.0?

Google has made the source code for Android 4.0 available, and the fine folks over at XDA Developers and Cyanogen have created a port that will run on last year's Nexus S, but installing it is not recommended unless you know what you're doing under the hood of an Android smartphone. 

Consider all the Android update drama that has unfolded over the last two years. Android saw a big leap in late 2009 from 1.6 to 2.0 (and almost immediately 2.1). Android handset makers spent the first half of 2010 scrambling to update 1.6 devices to 2.0, and eventually to 2.1, and to 2.2. Handset makers and network operators sold devices with the promise of swift system upgrades, only to hit snag after snag.

You don't have to look any further than Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which was released in December 2010 and is still being rolled out to devices that were launched in mid-2011. Yes, that means Android smartphones are still being sold with Android 2.2 Eclair.Considering how vast and deep the changes between Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are, you do not want to get stuck on a device that can't or won't be updated.

With that in mind, here is a partial list of smartphones that are expected to receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at some point during the first quarter of 2012, based on comments made by either the manufacturer or the network operator. If the phone you want is not on this list, I highly recommend you pick one that goes here..
Android 4.0 Upgrade List: Devices Expected to Get Ice Cream Sandwich
HTC
HTC has committed to upgrading a number of its smartphones in "early 2012." The update list includes the Amaze 4G, EVO 3D,EVO Design 4G, Rezound, Sensation, Sensation XE, Sensation XL, and Vivid. Most of these devices are sold in the U.S. by the major carriers, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless.

LG
LG, too, has announced via its Facebook page that it will upgrade a handful of its Android smartphones to Android 4.0. They are the Optimus 2X, Optimus 3D, Optimus Black, and the Optimus LTE.So far, LG has only committed to updating the international variants.

Motorola
The list of Motorola handsets on deck to receive Ice Cream Sandwich is pretty short. The only phones definitely receiving Android 4.0 are the Droid Bionic, Droid Razr (U.S. version), and Razr (international version). Motorola announced that these phones will get Android 4.0 early in 2012. 

Samsung
Samsung hasn't been as forthcoming as its rivals about Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades. We know that the Galaxy Nexus will ship with Android 4.0. The Galaxy Nexus S II Skyrocket for AT&T will get Android 4.0. Beyond these two phones, Samsung hasn't said anything about its entire line of Galaxy smartphones.

Sony Ericsson
Sony Ericsson has been far more vocal about which devices will receive Android 4.0. In a blog post, Sony said that it will update its entire line-up of Xperia-branded Android smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This includes the Xperia arc and arc S, Xperia Play, Xperia neo and neo V, Xperia mini and mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active, and Xperia ray.Sony Ericsson  is working to merge the features of its Xperia software with those of Android 4.0, and will have more information on the availability of the system updates at a later time, but the updates are on schedule for delivery in the first quarter of the year.

Android 4.0 Upgrade List: Devices That Definitely Won't Get Ice Cream Sandwich
  • HTC Droid Eris
  • HTC G1
  • HTC Hero 
  • HTC Nexus One
  • Motorola Charm
  • Motorola Cliq XT
  • Motorola Devour
  • Motorola Flipout
  • Motorola i1

    Increasing your research engine ranking to your website doesn't need to be an impossible task available only to computer experts. The notion of SEO (google search optimization) is usually to make your website more palatable for the big three and hence get you more sales. During the past, webmasters were appointed to check search rankings.
