Motorola cancels ICS updating for 3 devices

Motorola promised us back in February that they will upgrade a large number of devices to Android 4.0 ice Cream Sandwich. We were very happy by then. But now a statement from Motorola’s Punit Soni has recently revealed that no Ice Cream Sandwich update will see the light of day for three devices. They will forever stay in Google’s older Android 2.3 OS, a sad happening for users of any of these devices. These 3 devices are - the Motorola Atrix 4G, Photon 4G and Electrify.

Other devices remain unaffected, with perhaps some minor changes in dates at most. Hopefully, this will be the extent of the changes, with no more devices and their owners being forced to suffer on Gingerbread. But there is always a way for you. You can root your device and install a custom ROM. You know the developer community will always have your back.

Read the Motorola’s statement for further details.
Motorola Mobility continues to review how each device can deliver the very best experience possible, and at times, this can mean making tough choices – especially as it relates to Android software upgrades. Today, we need to let you know about some tough choices related to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades. Specifically, ATRIX 4G, Photon 4G and Electrify will not receive the ICS upgrade, but continue to be supported with maintenance releases to ensure optimum performance for the consumer.

We are committed to being more transparent than ever on our software upgrade strategy – even when we’re delivering news consumers may not want to hear. We are doing everything possible to continually improve our communication with you and make sure you are a satisfied customer. That’s why we recently announced our $100 rebate program for owners of these and other devices launched in 2011 and beyond that won’t get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This program starts in the U.S. this fall, and we are working to expand it to select regions around the world. Please watch for updates at motorola.com/tradeup.

AT&T announces four new Samsung Android devices

Apple may try hard and harder every day to keep Samsung out of US but we are sure that they will fail successfully on that. Samsung is just getting stronger every day in US. Today AT&T announced four Android devices on their lineup, all from the Koreans. The bunch consists of three LTE smartphones and one tablet, which also packs the aforementioned network connectivity.

AT&T announced its own version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Its specs are no different than the ones found in the international version, except the presence of LTE and AT&T's logo on the back.

Samsung Galaxy Express is one of two phones AT&T announced today. The Android 4.0 ICS smartphone packs a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and a 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display. A 5MP snapper and 2000mAh battery complete the list of known specs.

If you want something tough then Galaxy Rugby Pro is for you. The successor of the Samsung Rugby Smart packs LTE and Android 4.0 ICS, tucked into a rugged body, which is built up to 810g military specifications. A 4" WVGA Super AMOLED display, a 5MP camera, as well as enhanced push-to-talk are also part of the spec sheet.

Finally, AT&T announced the addition of the 4G LTE flavored Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to its lineup of tablets.

Pricing and exact availability for the devices is yet to be known.

New Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is up to 20 percent thinner than its predecessor. It enables better touch responsiveness and brighter images without sacrificing the damage resistance consumer’s demand.
