Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch Ice Cream Sandwich Information Spotted in the Wild
When Samsung first announced which phones would be getting Android Ice Cream Sandwich, they didn’t mention the U.S. versions of the device whatsoever. While most were confident that their brand new, super power phones would not be left behind, there were some non-believers that thought they were about to be left in the dust.
For owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, you are among those that do not have to worry about it anymore. Thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member kc_exactly, who produced the links, users can go read about a couple of leaked builds dubbed FB09 and FB10 which, among other things, claims to have Android 4.0.3 and Android 4.0.4 respectively.
There’s some fun information in the RDF file for those who choose to attempt to read it, but there should be some stuff that pops out. Such as a new Radio, named ED29 and CIQ. No one said everything was good news. Yes, there is a mention of CIQ on the RDF and whether it will be included in official releases is, at this point, anyone’s guess. As it is, it is only a matter of time before some leaked builds of ICS land in the forums and users of the Epic 4g Touch get their taste of ICS.
You can find the link to the RDF in the kc_exactly’s thread where everyone is talking about it or directly from this link showing the FB10 build. Joy!

Consumers had a very small selection to choose from in the form of the Nexus Player and Razer Forge TV, or they could buy a new Sony or Phillips television with Android TV on-board. These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...
One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...
It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications. Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
