Update: Here's HTC's official statement regarding the update, which elaborates on the changes in greater detail:

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.

The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the 'recent app' key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus.

In a post to its "Inside Search" blog, Google announced today that several improvements are currently being rolled out to mobile search (for phones and tablets), making some of the engine's quick answers "richer, more beautiful, and more interactive."

In the recent past, users have enjoyed improvements to weather and calculator searches, with handy interactive cards (reminiscent of Google Now's visual style).

Google is now updating a heaping handful of other quick answer features including finance, currency conversion, unit conversion, dictionary definitions, local time lookup, and holiday and sunrise times.

Today on Facebook, HTC took to answering some user comments about ICS timelines for a few of its flagship devices. In particular, the manufacturer confirmed that both the Desire S and the Thunderbolt would be receiving updates to Android 4.0 before the end of this month. The latter in particular is good news, as rumors have been circulating that the Thunderbolt would not receive the upgrade after its similarly-specced sibling, the Desire HD had its frozen dessert plans cancelled.

Update: A post just hit the CM blog verifying what we all suspected: CM9 Stable for all devices will be rolling out tonight. As previously mentioned, this marks the end of development (aside from bug fixes) for CM9 so the team can focus on CM10.

The post also notes that the Maguro build that hit last night actually went up by mistake and shouldn't have been posted until tonight. As a result, a new build (9.0.0.1) will go live with the rest of the stable releases tonight.

A leaked image of an upcoming device for T-Mobile, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q (a name that violates no less than three commandments) just surfaced over at TmoNews. As its [awful] name suggests, this appears to be a QWERTY-fied version of the Galaxy S Blaze, though the rumored specs actually point to a bit of an upgrade in the display department, as well:

  • 720p display (size not mentioned)
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • HSPA+ 42
  • Slide-out QWERTY
  • Android 4.0

By comparison, the Blaze 4G packs similar specs (sans keyboard), but with a meager 480x800 display and slower Snapdragon S3 (as opposed to the S4 in the Blaze Q).

It seems the announcement of "root for Samsung device x" always manages to occur well before most consumers actually have their hands on it. Today marks yet another such occasion, with the Galaxy Note 10.1 having already been cracked by Zedomax over at the surprisingly aptly-named RootGalaxyNote.com.

It's so easy that I'm just going to give you the gist, head to the source for the full instructions. Basically, you need a Galaxy Note 10.1, Odin, Samsung USB drivers, and a firmware file.

There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the best phone on all four major carriers right now. If you're considering picking one up on Big Red (despite its locked bootloader), you can now score the 32GB version in white or blue from either Amazon Wireless or Wirefly. Yeah, we know: it's a tough choice. First you have to decide which color to buy, then which vendor to buy it from.

Update: In what seems to be a major social media fail, Motorola does not appear to be teasing a new device after all. TechRadar spent some time chatting with a Motorola rep about the whole incident, only to find out that it was a false alarm. Oh, Motorola, why do you build us up, baby, just to let us down?

Good job, guys.

Motorola has taken to its Facebook page with a bit of a game teasing an upcoming device.

Last month, owners of Toshiba's 10-inch Thrive tablet were dealt a blow when the manufacturer announced that the tablet's official update to Ice Cream Sandwich would be delayed to "early Fall." This news came several months after Toshiba had initially indicated an "end of Spring" release target for the update.

After all of that, it appears that the Thrive is finally receiving its update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich today – for real this time.
