PantechUSA announced via Twitter this morning that its Burst budget phone will finally be receiving an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, in a little less than a week. Curiously, it won't be available over the air. Details haven't been released yet, but the update will be made available on the company's website here.

In a tweet earlier this evening, the recently resurrected evleaks Twitter account revealed what may be a variant of ZTE's Intel-powered Grand X IN phone which we saw at IFA 2012 headed for Boost Mobile.

It's definitely worth noting, though, that this ZTE Grand X IN (if that is what we're looking at) is a tad different from the original.

In the mad scramble to keep up with all the major social networks, a number of third-party clients have popped up over the years to help you manage everything. Not that Twitter takes too kindly to these sorts of shenanigans. Still, services like Seesmic tried to replicate the native Twitter experience while augmenting it with Facebook integration in one app. When Twitter gutted third-party APIs for consumer-facing apps, Seesmic likely faced some trouble.

The newest app from Cloud.TV is out in preview form, and it's already looking quite promising. You might know Cloud.TV from the wildly popular HD Widgets app. This time the dev is tackling dock apps with DayFrame. We've seen various photo frame and dock apps, but the way DayFrame integrates Google voice input is something new.

The app can display photo streams from Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter.

Everyone's favorite Twitter tipster has just dropped some interesting (and disappointing) images on us. For those of you hoping for bezel-free display on a Motorola phone, you may be in for a bit of a wait if this is all Motorola is planning on releasing today. The image shows us two Verizon-bound Motorola devices and, well... they look about the same as most other Motorola devices. The two devices appear to be images of the very-very-soon-to-be-announced RAZR M and RAZR HD.

There's a lot of options for Twitter on Android, both in full apps and widgets. But the newest player may just be my new favorite. Falcon for Twitter, now in beta, combines the standard timeline view with enough options and settings to make the obsessive compulsive Android user ecstatic, while still fitting in with the Holo theme of ICS and Jelly Bean beautifully. The standard features include listing your mentions, retweets and private messages, and a quick and useful mobile view that opens links in a mini-browser without ever leaving your homescreen.

Twitter posted an update on its developer blog today, detailing the changes coming with v1.1 of the Twitter API. In summary, things aren't looking good for any 3rd party Twitter app. In fact, many will find themselves crippled (though not outright banned, it seems).

While some 3rd party Twitter clients like HootSuite seem to be in the clear, the company is making it extremely obvious that it no longer wants such apps to exist.

Though the service's popularity has been waning since competitors sprang up (and Twitter itself jumped in the game), Twitpic remains a major host for images on Twitter. They're not going down without a fight, either, and the company has released its official Android app dedicated to sharing photos on Twitter. With a UI heavily inspired by the Twitter app itself (duh), it allows you to browse through photos hosted by Twitpic on your Twitter timeline, as well as edit and share your photos.

Way back in November, LG took to Facebook to announce that its high-end handsets would be receiving an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, that was eight months ago. A lot can change in that time. Now, LG Canada's twitter account is saying that the Optimus 2X will not be upgraded, and that LG's previous comment on the subject was a "general statement issued from HQ."

Of course, it's a little hard to understand how "the LG Optimus 2X will receive an upgrade to ICS" could be interpreted as a "general statement".
