In their usual timely manner, Verizon is gearing up to finally push the ICS update to the Motorola Xoom 4G LTE on June 4th. The update will be the exact same Android 4.0.4 IMM76K update that the Galaxy Nexus is getting and will most likely rollout in stages. Big Red has already posted the support documents on their support page so if you want to see the official stuff hit the source link at the end of this post.
As far as what is included, you can expect the usual Ice Cream Sandwich features as well as bug fixes, better stability, improved speech-to-text software and network connectivity, a built-in photo editor, and the swipe to dismiss notifications feature. As I said earlier, not much new but long over due at any rate. These should be welcomed changes to you Xoom 4G owners. Enjoy the Cream, friends.
The MOTOACTV sports/fitness watch seemed cool when it first launched, but I must say, Motorola has done a fine job with updates and has really made it the best watch to own, even if you’re not a fitness nut. This latest update (version 7.2) now allows you to see Facebook updates and read your Twitter updates. Plus there are more options for golf, better workout planning, and so much more. To get the update, just plug your MOTOACTV into your PC or MAC. Hit the break for the full list of enhancements.
Well, after all the waiting and all the negative thoughts about Verizon, it appears that Big Red has finally started to roll out the Android 4.0.4 update to the Galaxy Nexus. What you are seeing above is a screenshot sent in to the folks over at Droid Life and it clearly shows that some lucky Verizon customer has already received the long overdue IMM76K update. Word has it that the update is going out in small batches because only a few people across the Twittersphere have been so fortunate to be on the recieving end. Either way this is a sure sign that the update has officially begun and we suggest that you Verizon GNex owners start checking for available updates on the regular. Let us know when you see anything.

We are getting ever so close now. According to a recent tweet, Verizon is gearing up to push out the 4.0.4 update to the Galaxy Nexus at any time now. This morning Big Red took to their Twitter account and said the following:
software update will soon be pushed to the Galaxy
#Nexus for #Verizon Wireless, this includes #Android 4.0.4
If this wasn’t a sign of a looming update, I don’t know what is. Yesterday we watched as the Android 4.0.4 support documents went live on the Galaxy Nexus support page so it is bound to happen any moment now. We may even see the update in the next 24 hours. We will be sure to keep our eyes peeled and will let you know the minute she starts rolling out.
If you happen to see the update before we do, be a pal and let us know, will ya?
LG has announced that it will be updating a few of their latest handsets. The Optimus LTE, the Optimus LTE Tag, and the Optimus Vu starting on June 4th will be upgrading to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This upgrade will bring great new featured to the devices mentioned. Giving the user an all new user interface along with more features and enhancements over that of it’s predecessor Gingerbread. LG may not be the first to start upgrading their devices, but at least they have begun the transition. There isn’t yet any info on how the carriers of these handsets will be involved but as the news comes in we will report it.

Well, next device to make its rounds through the FCC, the Asus Eee Pad MeMO ME370T which debuted at CES 2012, has just cleared its hurdles and could make it to the masses soon. It’s still not clear as to whether the device will run on a cellular network or be a WiFi only device. In any event, it’s shaping up to be a slick device. At 7-inches, the tab is slated to house Nvidia’s Tegra 3, however, other rumors consist of the device having its quad-core CPU swapped out for a Qualcomm dual-core chip, slapped with a $149 price tag and sold on the Google Play Store possibly as a Google Nexus 7-inch tab. Wouldn’t that be something? Further rumors suggest it’s possibly shipping with the anticipated Jelly Bean update. And while that’s just pure speculation at this point, you can check out the FCC filing for yourself and dig a little too.
After a couple of false starts (here and here), Verizon has finally updated the status of the Android 4.0.4 OTA update for their Galaxy Nexus to “coming soon”. The support page states that the update is indeed imminent and contains links to install instructions. Of course, if you’re impatient, there’s always the manual install.
The over-the-air update should start hitting Verizon Galaxy Nexii any time now, which will install build IMM76K, bringing the Verizon variant up to speed with the GSM and Sprint versions. A little slow to the party, Verizon, but thanks for showing up.
Anyone see it yet? Let us know in the comments!
Unfortunately a large number of Xperia Play owners are not happy about the fact that their Playstation-certified device has been denied the Android 4.0 upgrade. Fortunately the wait is over for Xperia arc and neo owners! A screenie posted recently tells us that Ice Cream Sandwich is now starting to roll out to the Sony devices. Handset will be updated to Android 4.0.4, Which brings a multitude of enhancements which the user will love, and can take full advantage of. Over at Sony Mobile you can get the full details of what to expect from the upgrade. Also upgrading are other devices in the Xperia line that currently are sporting Android 4.0.3, and now can get their hands on 4.0.4. Head on over to the Sony Xperia Support site for all the info you need to get your upgrade started and details on this update.
It’s been a little over 7 months since the Ice Cream Sandwich SDK was released, but there are still plenty of phones waiting for the update. Those of you who own the LG Spectrum will be happy to know that the ICS update leaked. We know it’s an official update, but we don’t know if it’s the final version. What does this mean? It means we have no idea when the Spectrum will get ICS. If you can’t wait any longer, you can certainly hit the source link and try to apply it, but from what I’m seeing, other users aren’t having all that much luck.
When Motorola released their updated Ice Cream Sandwich timeline, we learned that the DROID RAZR would get it before the end of June. Of course, Motorola will add its own manufacturer skin, known as Motoblur, on top of ICS to give it their own flavor.
Just how will the latest Motoblur look on the RAZR? Motorola is giving us a peek through a series of videos on their Japanese RAZR site. These videos cover everything, including the new lock screen, Webtop 3.0, taking screenshots, navigation, and more. In all, there are 15 videos covering just about everything you want to see of the RAZR’s ICS build.
Motoblur has been consistently panned by Android enthusiasts and media in the past, but it seems they are slimming down their latest skin to give the OS a distinctively Moto flair, but keeping ICS’s soul and essence intact.
Check out all 15 videos after the break.
