Motorola Explains the Process Behind Bringing Android 4.0 to their Handsets


Wednesday 07th of December 2011 / phandroid.com
As soon as Google announced Ice Cream Sandwich, Android users everywhere began asking, “when can I get it on my phone?” While most major carriers have committed to getting the update out to many of the big-name devices currently on the market, we are still quite a way off from getting Android 4.0 on any currently available phone. Why? Motorola addresses the issue head on, detailing their process for getting a new Android update prepped and beamed out to users.Motorola has divided the process into four steps:Adapt the source code to device hardware, add custom UI (when applicable) and tweak featuresPerform in-house bug testing to reach a stable release candidateSubmit software upgrade for carrier approval and issue a pre-release version to a small customer base for real-world testingRelease Android 4.0 to the massesYes, that isn’t telling us much more than we already knew, but it does give you an idea of how much work really goes on. It is impossible for a manufacturer to simply push an update the moment they receive the source code from Google. Things just don’

Featured: Equiso Smart TV Brings Android 4.0 to Any TV

While Google TV set top boxes are still scrambling to make any sales, a new start-up is hoping to raise at least $100,000 through Kickstarter to ship Android 4.0 on a USB stick, that you can use to make any TV smarter. They’ve already achieved their goal with 11 days to go, but you can still pledge $69 to get your own device shipped next month.The OS and UI seem to be pretty much what you’d expect from the stock Android OS, so it’s not very optimized for the big screen experience, but then again Android 4.0 doesn’t look too bad on it. It also seems to run pretty well for the price you’re paying. That’s because it doesn’t run on a chip built on the ancient ARMv6 architecture, like ARM11, which is the same CPU found in Raspberry Pi, and basically all low-end smartphones.It comes with Cortex A5, which is based on ARMv7, like all Cortex chips, which means it’s faster, and it gets better support from Google and other developers who don’t have to build their apps for 2 different ARM architectures. As an example, you’ll be able to

Pocket TV: an Android 4.0 ICS micro-computer the size of your thumb


Thursday 07th of June 2012 / androidheadlines.com
When thinking about the size and volume of today’s smartphones, most of the ever-shrinking space inside them is occupied by two major components: the battery and the display.
