Can you believe that it's already been a year since NVIDIA launched the Tegra Zone - the go-to place to find Tegra-optimized games? Neither can I. Since its release, we've seen numerous new devices hit the market with Tegra Zone support, including a handful of devices with the monstrous Tegra 3 superchip. Not only that, but we've seen even more Tegra Zone games show up, and watched them get more and more console-like along the way.
Do you own an Eee Pad Slider? Time to hit the check update button (if you're in the US, that is), because ASUS just dropped via Twitter that the device is receiving an OTA update to Android 4.0:
UPDATE. #Android ICS release v184.108.40.206 hits the Eee Pad Slider SL101 today in the US.

As far as I know, that means ASUS's entire line of Android tablets are now running Ice Cream Sandwich (though admittedly, there's only four of them), a track record I'm sure we'd all like to see other tablet manufacturers match (*cough* Samsung *cough*).
At a time where phone networks in the UK are fighting over 4G spectrum, it's easy to forget that not everyone is willing, or able, to spend £40 a month on a fast mobile phone - just ask those public sector workers who are striking over pensions today.
With this in mind, it shouldn't come as a surprise that O2 is attempting to broaden its smartphone lineup by adding Huawei's Ascend Y100 into the mix.
The update for devices running Gingerbread to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich have been erratic at best. Although Samsung has promised updates for its smartphones and tablets, the overall rollout has been quite unpredictable with different markets getting upgrades before others.
The Galaxy S III, announced at a highly anticipated event last week, immediately impressed me with its advanced software. Samsung has stuffed the SGS III with so many features that my mind explodes every time I try to remember all of them - and what you saw during the unveiling is only half the story. There's more, a lot more, which is why the S III is going to be the most interesting Android phone to play with and review this year.
It's nothing new for images or specs of a device to leak prior to its announcement, but this time it does dash the hopes of some Android fans to bits. The Samsung SPH-L300 for Sprint was first leaked in a user profile that lacked any real information. It was put forth that this could be the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already in testing, but if this new leak is to be believed, this is a completely different and thoroughly mid-range device.
