That’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and, if you have an Android tablet that is running 3.1 or later that is registered to the Android marketplace, you’re eligible for an automatic upgrade. You may already have it!
J&R already sells these Android 4.0 models.
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is the latest version of the Android platform for phones, tablets, and more. It builds on the things people love most about Android — easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and deep interactivity — and adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing.
Android 4.0 makes managing notifications, recent apps, and browser tabs even easier. You can now dismiss individual notifications, apps from the Recent Apps list, and browser tabs with a simple swipe of a finger.
Support for Wi-Fi Direct lets you connect directly to nearby peer devices over Wi-Fi, for more reliable, higher-speed communication. No internet connection or tethering is needed. Through third-party apps, you can connect to compatible devices to take advantage of new features such as instant sharing of files, photos, or other media; streaming video or audio from another device; or connecting to compatible printers or other devices.
Android 4.0 also introduces built-in support for connecting to Bluetooth Health Device Profile (HDP) devices. With support from third-party apps, you can connect to wireless medical devices and sensors in hospitals, fitness centers, homes, and elsewhere.
All Android Tablets running Android 3.1 or later (excOptmus 1 by LG) that have been activated and registered directly to the Android Marketplace are eligible for the upgrade. All new tier-1 Tablets manufactured by Toshiba, Samsung, Asus, Acer, and Sony already have Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed.
A comprehensive list is available from Android.
Summer is just fine for Ice Cream Sandwich and this Ice Cream Sandwich will satisfy throughout the years to come.
