The Telstra rep also stated that the Android 4.0.4 update which is rolling out around the world should be coming to the One XL. However, the Jelly Bean update is the only one in the schedule at the moment. The 4.0.4 update comes with Sense 4.1, which gives you the ability to move the hideous menu button to a new position. You are given the choice to override the multi-tasking capacitive button and make it act as the menu button.
@mobilenova I’d imagine so,
It seems as though Telstra has really caught onto the benefits of being as transparent as possible with Android updates. After yesterday announcing their earnings and reports for the 2012 financial year, Telstra have also launched a brand new page for device updates. Well, its not so much a page but more so a forum post – which in my opinion doesn’t work as well.
The post outlines all of Telstra’s phones (Android or not), when they expect the update to be approved and when the roll-out should begin. Telstra also gives us a bit more info with current notes on the updates and what the current status is – quite handy if you ask me.
If you’d like to …

Got an HTC Rhyme and are on the Optus network? Well, today is your lucky day. Optus has just approved an ICS roll-out for HTC’s mid-range phone. It has been quite a great week of ICS updates and Optus and HTC have just taken it once step further.

LG has just sent out a press release that all of their new Optimus L Style Series phones will be updated with a software upgrade which will include QuickMemo. QuickMemo is LG’s application to allow you to quickly jot down some notes on any screenshot taken on the phone with is. It’s much like what we’ve seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note, but it appears to have a few goodies of its own.
But what is QuickMemo?
Simply put, QuickMemo is basically an extension to screenshots. It allows you to take down screenshots and annotate them accordingly. LG has stated in their press release:
QuickMemo™ is surprisingly simple to use. When users need to urgently write down a phone number

Vodafone has updated their blog today with some great news for all Samsung Galaxy Note users! I know I say it a lot but now is really the time to cheer and shout. All Samsung Galaxy Notes that have been purchased from Vodafone are being updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tomorrow at 1pm!
The update will be rolled out in ‘a staged process’ which means that not everyone will get the update at once. Do not fear though, it shouldn’t take more than a week at most to get the update.
The update will be available OTA (Over The Air) or via Samsung’s Kies software. Just wait for the clock to tick over to the magical 1 tomorrow …
Motorola Australia has taken to Facebook today to confirm the update to Ice Cream Sandwich of the Motorola RAZR. It isn’t all too clear if this is the Optus or unlocked version, but we’d have to assume that the Optus variant is getting the update too.

The upgrade will be pushed in batches over the next week. If you can’t wait that long you can manually pull down the upgrade by going to Settings About Phone System Updates.
So, what are you waiting for? Follow the instructions above and get yourself some ICS goodness! The update is rolling out in batches over …
For all of you who have been emailing us, writing on our Facebook wall or leaving comments about the Galaxy Note’s impending ICS update – this is for you. Vodafone have sent out a lovely tweet today that Galaxy Note users will soon be able to taste some of that creamy goodness that is ICS shortly. Here’s the Tweet straight from Vodafone themselves:
Own a Samsung GALAXY Note? Something sweet is coming your way – Ice Cream Sandwich is now approved: bddy.me/QkPKOB

The official blog says that the the update is currently at the second round software testing round. Well, we’ll just have to go on the latest from Vodafone_AU’s Twitter account and …
Optus has yesterday made a Facebook status that their Xperia S devices will be receiving Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – finally. This comes a few weeks after Sony came out themselves saying that all Xperia S devices will be receiving the update. Well, about 8 months after ICS first came out and about 5 months after the Xperia S was launched (yeah, it doesn’t make sense) we now have ICS on this device.
The ICS update for the Xperia S provides quite a few great updates for the phone, which Sony laid out clearly a few weeks ago. It gives you the ability to do many things and Sony is particularly excited about one part
First off, we’re
Optus have made a status on Facebook stating that the LG Optimus L7 is receiving what seems to be quite an exciting update. It’s nothing too big but brings an update to LG’s QuickMemo, which allows you to annotate on screenshots quickly before sending them off. This is something that is definite very welcome, but it is in no means ground-breaking. Has anyone heard of Skitch?
Optus seem to have made quite a big deal about the whole thing:
Attention: LG Optimus L7 owners!
LG has provided a software update for your Optimus L7 that is available now for download and installation.
The update is designed to deliver faster software performance and
includes the new software feature called QuickMemo.
We’ve heard word from a reader that the Optus branded Motorola RAZR (which we recently reviewed) is now receiving an OTA ICS update! For all of you who have been counting down to this day it is certainly time to be excited!
This has been a long time coming and the Motorola RAZR is one of the only high-end phones from 2011 yet to receive the update – until now that is!
We can’t be sure that the update is going for a full roll out just yet, so be sure to let us know if you get it in the comments below!
