So, there's this phone on AT&T called the LG Thrill 4G.  While it's virtually identical to the Optimus 3D in nearly every way, it has been running Android 2.2 since release, whereas its twin brother has been on Android 2.3 for four months now. Finally, though, Thrill 4G owners are getting treated to a taste of Gingerbread, albeit with one last hurdle to jump through.

Instead of rolling the update OTA (over-the-air), this one requires the LG Mobile Support tool.

Good news for anyone who bought one of the recent Sony Android tablets - namely the Tablet P and Tablet S - the update to Android 4.0 should be coming your way next month. The update will not only bring all of the benefits that ICS has to offer, but also a feature that will allow Tablet users to access and watch programs they've recorded on their compatible Sony Blu-Ray recorder.

Update: After months of waiting, the THD version has now received this expansion pack. Hit the widget and get to killin'!

Madfinger Games has just rolled out an update to their uber-hit third-person shooter Shadowgun, and this time around they have included more than just some bug fixes. The most significant aspect of the update is a new free expansion called "The Leftover" - check out the trailer:

The Leftover "directly follows the events of the original SHADOWGUN" and features:

  • 4 new levels
  • New enemy creature
  • New gun
  • New type of gaming interaction
  • New soundtrack

The update brings some new effects and features to the original campaign, as well:

  • Camera shakes and bullet trails
  • Player can now roll
  • Tuned difficulty, weapons, and enemies
  • Better, more intensive gaming experience

The THD version of the game (with improved graphics and additional effects to take advantage of the extra horsepower Tegra 3 provides) hasn't yet been updated, and there's no official word as to when it will be.

The XFINITY TV app for Android saw its first update in many months back in February, which brought many useful features to XFINITY customers. While the update was accepted with open arms by most XFINITY users, one group was still left out in the cold: users with Ice Cream Sandwich-powered devices.

At the time ICS support was said to be "coming soon," which apparently translates into a little over a month in developer speak, as the update finally hit the Play Store just a little while ago.

It's always nice to see a device update roll out. This time around, we're seeing the details of a new software update for the Droid Charge spring up on Verizon's support page. The update brings things to version FP1, and mainly consists of some bug fixes and minor improvements:

While there are no really exciting changes here (*cough* Android updates *cough*), it's tough to complain about software support in any form.

An update just hit the Verizon Support docs site that details an upcoming OTA for the LG Revolution. Before we get into to the details of this update, (and you get your hopes up); no, it's not Android 4.0. Sorry, Revolution owners.

What it does bring though, is a bit of a curiosity. Listed as the solitary 'New Feature' of the device is the Verizon Remote Diagnostic Tool, a VNC-like application that will allow VZW customer support to remotely view and control the device for troubleshooting purposes, with the user's permission, of course.

A new Android Market Google Play Store v3.5.15 (an update to v3.4.7) is very slowly trickling through to Android users everywhere, and we managed to snag an APK you can download and install right now (thanks, Chad Winner!). After playing with it for a few minutes, the most obvious change is most definitely in the My Applications UI, although I did find a few more (thanks to everyone who helped out).

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

Folks across the pond rocking that huge phone/tiny tablet simply known as the Galaxy Note have been waiting patiently for Samsung to deliver on that Q1 promise for the ICS update. Bad news: doesn't look like that's going to happen. According a new post on Samsung Norway's Facebook page, the Android 4.0 update for the mighty Note has been delayed until sometime in Q2.

Gotta love Google Translate.

While this news may be a bit disheartening, I wouldn't stress out too much about it just yet - Samsung has been known to say the wrong thing from time to time, after all.

Word showed up this morning that the ICS update for the HTC Vivid was beginning to roll out; however, AT&T says that's not the case. But... you want ICS on your Vivid now, right? Seems that one clever chap found a way to manually pull the official update by typing  *#*#682#*#* in the dialer. Seriously, give it a try. I bet you'll have the same results as several users on XDA.

The Kyocera Milano - a mid-range phone released on Sprint last September - is receiving an OTA update, bringing the device's software up to version 1.006sp. The update includes several bug fixes, as well as a security patch, "changes" to the phone's roaming guard display, and Mobile Alert System capability. If the update hasn't pushed to your Milano just yet, you can manually check by hitting Settings > About Phone > System Update > Update Firmware.
