HTC-Flyer-3-views-550x427

While HTC may have just made the 10.1-inch Jetstream official, it hasn't forgotten about the 7-inch Flyer; actually, it's quite the opposite. They seem to be hard at work on a Honeycomb update for the tiny powerhouse, as a full RUU is now available for download thanks to Paul O'Brien of MoDaCo.

This RUU is a very early build and those who are looking to flash it should proceed with extreme caution, as there isn't a lot of info available just yet on how stable it is, or whether you can easily rollback to the previous version.

Finally! The long awaited Gingerbread update for both the Droid Incredible and ThunderBolt will be hitting the airwaves in September, according to HTC's official Twitter.

2011-08-31 15h46_34

While several leaked Android 2.3.x builds for each device have surfaced over the past few months, none of them were deemed good enough to achieve "official" status, so it's good to know that HTC has finally put the finishing touches on each.

No solid date has been set, so just know that your waiting will finally come to an end within the next few weeks.

The Google Voice app for Android, which I've been using as my primary voicemail provider after gladly abandoning Sprint's own visual voicemail, saw its first update in many months today, which, among other things, finally fixed the most annoying bug that's been plaguing it for as long as I can remember.

The bug I am talking about is, of course, having to click the Play button a second time after you've already clicked it once (the voicemail would stop playing 0-2 seconds into the call requiring this second press).

We've been talking about Gingerbread for the Droid Incredible and its on-again-off-again status quite a bit lately, but after the official support docs showed up on VZW's site, we had confirmation of what we knew all along: the update is alive and kicking. It was rumored that it would start rolling out OTA-style earlier in the week but was delayed for unknown reasons, leaving Incredible owners without their cookie-filled upgrade just a little bit longer.

Google+, the titular search giant's latest entry into the social networking scene, has seen some success so far, and of course a mobile app is a critical step in making the service usable and popular. Android's Google+ app got an update to version 1.0.6 recently, bringing a few much-needed conveniences as well as support for a ton of new languages.

One of my favorite keyboard options for Android, Thumb Keyboard from Beansoft, has recently updated to version 4.3.3. Beansoft already upped the app to version 4 a little while ago bringing themes (and a slick coverflow gallery view of the themes) and a ton of other features that improved the keyboard's capacity for customization. Building on that update, 4.3.3 brings the following:

  • Customizable keyboard backgrounds
  • Adjustable typing volume
  • Full support for h/qvga screens
  • Minor bug fixes

It has been a while since the official Google Docs app received an update of any kind, but Google pushed a small batch of fixes and enhancements today. The update brings 45 new languages, the ability to copy any image directly from the Gallery, open documents with any compatible apps, and send documents as an attachment through email or MMS.

The update is available now in the Android Market.
