Since hearing earlier this month that HTC's Desire S, Thunderbolt, and other select handsets would receive ICS updates "by the end of August," we have heard nary a peep from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Today though, thanks to an alleged leaked RUU, we have a stock Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 build for the Thunderbolt (aka Mecha).

According to Administrator's post at TeamBAMF's forums, the ROM, based on a leaked RUU (and carrying build number 7.00.605.2), is said to be fully functional and fully stock, but it's worth noting that the ROM is deodexed and rooted, meaning those wishing to retain root are in luck, but if you – for one reason or another – want a strictly stock, non-rooted experience, you'll have to wait.

Movies by Flixster has a very interesting design history. The developers behind this app are usually among the first to adopt new Android design guidelines—they had a Honeycomb-style action bar back when the Xoom was the only Android tablet around—and today it got another new refresh. The good news is that now it looks better on the Nexus 7, as opposed to the broken mess it was before. Now, for the bad news.

It was only last week that Sony began to update the Xperia P with Ice Cream Sandwich, but it looks like the company is now going full steam ahead and bringing the update to no fewer than 8 more devices this week.

A post on the Sony Xperia Product Blog this morning said that the update will be coming to the arc, arc S, neo, neo V, mini, pro, active, and ray "starting from this week".

It was only a couple days ago that we heard the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola Xyboard Wi-Fi models would be rolling out. Now, Verizon has announced that the same update for the LTE version of the tablet is about to rollout to customers via an OTA upgrade. The package will be about 336.4 MB, so hope you're on Wi-Fi.

Here are some of the changes you'll see with the upgrade:

Direct Access Lock Screen - The direct access lock screen takes you directly to Camera, Browser, Gallery or Unlock.

Hot on the heels of ASUS pushing out Jelly Bean to the TF300, Motorola has announced that ICS is now available for the Wi-Fi Xyboard 10.1 and 8.2.

The update should be rolling out OTA-style now, and brings a host of new features:

  • Updated Browser with faster rendering, zoom and pan: Users can also now save pages for offline reading and request desktop versions of websites.
  • Swipe to dismiss notifications and recent apps: You can now dismiss individual notifications and apps from the Recent Apps list with a simple swipe of a finger.

Sprint has finally announced what we'd heard almost a month ago. The Kyocera Rise, the budget smartphone best known for making my movie references easy, is heading to the Now Network on August 19th. The device will cost $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. So if you want the internal specs of the original Evo in a QWERTY slider from the company that you probably didn't know also makes cutlery, it will run you $70 out the door.

Samsung has been working to push Ice Cream Sandwich to the entire Galaxy Tab series as of late. We've already seen it hit the 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi, 7.7, and 10.1. As usual, owners of carrier-connected tablets have to wait a bit longer, as the update has more hoops to jump through before it can get the final approval and make its way to said devices.

Looks like T-Mobile is among one of the first carriers to offer the update for its variant of the Tab 7.0 Plus, and it's scheduled to become available tomorrow.

While Ice Cream Sandwich continues to struggle to gain significant proliferation, more and more devices are receiving the bump to Android 4.0. The latest entrant into the post-crappy-design world of Android is the Motorola Droid 4. According to Verizon's software update page, a new upgrade is on the way. In addition to bringing Android 4.0.4 and everything that entails, the software will also enable Global Roaming capabilities. This should make international travellers very happy.

Two weeks after ICS first hit the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe and mere days after the kernel source release, the delicious 254MB update has now reached the States. The Android version is 4.0.4, and the Samsung version is IMM76D.UELPL (also P7510UELPL depending on where you look). Go ahead and check for it manually if you don't see a notification just yet or fire up Kies.

In a (relatively) timely release, Samsung has given eager developers something to play with over the weekend – the manufacturer recently dropped Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source code for a handful of devices including three variants of the Galaxy Note 10.1 (the N8000, 8010, and 8013), the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, and both 3G and Wi-Fi variants of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (P7500 and 7510).

The release comes just days after the official Note 10.1 launch, source code release for the Korean Carrier-connected variant of the Note 10.1, and the discovery of a successful root method for the device.
