According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung isn't wasting time on keeping the eight smartphones Apple is demanding injunctions against on store shelves. And no, I'm not talking about an appeal.

Samsung is currently working with the carriers selling at least five of those phones in order to strip them of the features described in the software patents they were deemed to infringe as part of Friday's verdict in Apple v.

Let's see a show of hands: how many of you use your smartphone while driving? It's OK, we won't judge you. Yeah, you do it. We all do from time to time. And we all know it's not safe, too.

The interface of a smartphone is meant to be simple, but not simple enough to use while driving. For that, an app that turns your smartphone into something that your grandmother could be comfortable using would be much better.

If you have a Gingerbread phone, you want ICS. There's no arguing that fact. Even if you're happy with Gingerbread and have never used ICS before, you may not realize it, but you still want it.

Unfortunately for Stratosphere owners, it doesn't looks like Samsung wants to give you the full ICS experience; instead, they want to put Ice Cream Sandwich all over Gingerbread. Kind of like the "Galaxy S Suite" that was to bring some of the best features from ICS to GB, the Stratosphere is getting a cosmetic (and perhaps slightly functional) update that brings face unlock, a better app tray, new incoming call GUI, and a photo editor.

Adobe might have had to bow out of the video playback game on Android when Flash failed to catch on, but the company has some other products you might be interested in. Adobe Connect is a service that manages virtual meetings on computers and mobile devices. The app has been lagging behind the competition in the features department for a while now, but the new 2.0 update adds plenty of business-centric goodies.

The phone with the name everyone loves to hate – Sprint's Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch – began receiving a minor (and I mean minor) software update over the air today.

The OTA, which carries software build D710.10S.FH13 (for reference compare to the E4GT's Ice Cream Sandwich build D710.10.S.FF18), brings just one thing to the table: battery life enhancement.

Just how enhanced users should expect their battery life to be is unclear as yet, but being able to squeeze just a bit more life out of your handset is never a bad thing.

Optimus Vu-White-UI-2[20120816183823044]

After an exclusive stint in South Korea and Japan, LG's Optimus Vu is about to take various other parts of the world by storm. Select countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America will be seeing the Vu hit store shelves in September, and I imagine it's going to be pretty hard to miss. It's big. That's the joke.

LG's press release says the Vu "blurs the line" between phones and tablets for a "truly unique experience." I'll certainly buy that.

SwiftKey has issued an incremental update to its apps for Android phones and tablets this morning, headlined by the addition of continuous voice typing (dictation mode) and new themes.

Voice dictation support is available only for handsets running Android 4.0 or above, and can be accessed by long-pressing the comma. The two new themes are Sky (blue) and Fuchsia (pink) which, should you desire your keyboard to have a little more pop, pile onto an already large library of options.
