    Carefully worded statement that says nothing..

    Note the: “our aim”….

    Meaning nothing concrete. They need a WE WILL.

      I hear the Xoom will have 3.2 by the end of November.

        And that really is shite, as the Transformer has had 3.2.1 for 6 weeks or more.

        Don’t get me wrong, I really love my Transformer, it’s a fantastic purchase, and I think the liklihood of it getting ICS is very high, but Asus words are carefully picked.

        Clearly the Transformer is CAPABLE of running ICS, but Will Asus do it, when the Transformer2 is just around the corner, rocking ICS as standard?

        Anyone know if Asus signed up to the 18 month support cycle that Google proposed for Android updates? I know all the others did.,news-11146.html

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

    • HTC One V review

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor. It is is very much the “affordable” option in HTC’s newest Android series, but it still arrives running the same HTC Sense 4 interface we saw in the excellent […]

    • HTC One S review

      The HTC One S is the piggy in the middle of HTC’s 2012 line-up, offering a 4.3″ AMOLED display inside a very slim and stylish aluminium chassis.

You also get a fantastic 8megapixel camera that we’ve previously examined in great detail, […]
