While the US variants of the XOOM 2 (known as the Xyboard/Droid Xyboard in the States) have been sitting on ICS for a while now, the lonely European versions have been idly waiting for their update to roll in. Good news: today's the day!

Motorola announced via its Facebook page that not only are the XOOM 2 variants getting the bump to ICS, but the XOOM Family Edition is receiving the update, as well.

If you're sporting Verizon's variant of the Tab 7.7, then you're probably sick of Honeycomb. Good news for you! The ICS update is ready to go and should begin rolling out in the coming days.

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.

Late last week, ASUS began pushing Jelly Bean to the Transformer Prime, and it followed up by doing the same for the Infinity this week. That's great for users running stock systems with locked bootloaders, but if you don't fall into that camp, then you get no OTA love from ASUS. Now, though, they have made available the full stock ROMs for both tablets.

The ROMs, which are Android 4.1.1, can be flashed using any custom recovery - simply unzip the download and drop the contents onto your device's storage partition.

Tucked away in HTC's press release about the HTC One X+ and Sense 4+ was one tidbit that should make quite a few people happy:

The Android Jelly Bean with HTC™ Sense 4+ update is scheduled to begin rolling out for the HTC One™ S and HTC One™ X from October.

As most of you probably already know, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) is the most polished version of Android yet. Coupled with some of the "enhancements" in Sense 4+ - namely, the improved camera software and the Get Started functionality - it should be quite a nice update.

Sure, the Galaxy S III is the first major flagship device to get Jelly Bean outside the Nexus line. That's not fast enough for you, though, is it? Of course not! We can do better! Or, more accurately, XDA can do better. In fact, a TouchWiz Jelly Bean ROM has found its way to the development forum giant's threads already!

The build is still unofficial and obviously there are inherent risks to flashing it.

Last week, ASUS promised Jelly Bean to TF201 and TF700 owners, and while the former got its update right on time, there was an issue that prevented the update from being pushed to the latter. As a result, ASUS said the update would be available "early next week." Here we are, about as early as it can possibly get in the new week, and the OTA has already begun rolling out.

Last week, Motorola made some changes to its ICS timeline. Most of the changes didn't sound so good - several devices that were originally on the roster to get ICS were changed to "further plans coming soon." Among those devices was the ATRIX, Photon, and Electrify, which are all basically the same phone. Now, Motorola has made yet another change to the timeline, and it's not good news for owners of the aforementioned devices.

Right after Motorola announces that the Xyboard's update would be pushed back, this happens. Verizon just updated the 8.2's support docs with details of an impending update, which includes Android 4.0.

The update also brings a handful of other fixes, including:

+ Includes the latest Motorola USB driver to allow Xyboard to connect to a computer to transfer files.
+ Securely refresh your Corporate Email account with the native email client.

I'm not really a big car enthusiast, but there's just something that everyone can appreciate about drifting. Even in games, hitting the curve and sliding it through is a killer feeling, but it's one that even the best of racing games don't put a lot of focus on. That's where Drift Mania Championship 2 changes things - it's all about the drift, baby.

As you can see, not only does this game put you behind the wheel and let you slide all over the place, but it looks fantastic doing so.
