ICS Ported To Galaxy S i9003

ICS keeps making its way across different devices in our beloved site. One of the most recent ones was in a newly added device on the site, the Galaxy i9003. According to a thread started by XDA member fuss132, the port is a very early, almost pre-alpha if you will, version of this new OS. Unlike other ICS ports, this one is still very (and I do mean very) young in terms of maturity and features working on it.  However, this has never been an issue for the wonderful devs over at this site. This is basically how it all starts: port boots and everything else just follows afterwards. The sheer willpower of devs will likely get more things working soon, but for the time being you should only expect a booting rom with a half-functional touch screen. Not what you would consider a daily driver, yet fun to play with and give you an idea of whats coming.

If you are interested in trying this out and understand that this is not for anyone needing to use the device for anything other than development, then by all means download a copy and flash away. Also remember that the true sources for ICS are not far down the road, so more will likely become available once ICS hits the streets.

What´s working:
– It´s booting
– Touchscreen in some ways…

You can find more information in the original thread.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?
