I'll tell you as soon as I can. They already have how to get it for the nexus 7.
But what jay tee says is true it matters on carriers. I'm waiting for 4.1.1 on my s3. It's rolling out internationally already.


I hope you arent on big red as your carrier. im on verizon myself, and we are notorious for getting updates after everyone else. im not expecting to see the jelly bean update until december, but im looking forward to it. the galaxy s3 is already the fastest phone ive ever used, and with jelly bean's project butter enhancements it should be ridiculous.

ICS leaked for my Atrix, so hopefully the dev community can use that to build a ROM that has proper hardware acceleration and video recording. I've been living w/o video since February because I can't go back to ugly old GB. Hopefully they can do that before the next round of Nexus phones. I really want a Moto Nexus.

I think there will only be an LG nexus.

To everyone with a gs3. Double tap go to s voice, press settings, disable double tap to go to s voice. You're home button will be way faster. It delays because of s voice. If you disable it there is no problem.

sorry don't have any screen shots right now but..

Galaxy S3 Sprint
Blazer Rom
Go Launcher Theme'd out

I haven't touched Nova or Apex yet but I may give it a go. Any recommendations for themes on Nova/Apex? I like minimal and intuitive designs. The invisible launcher with single home screen and widget placement is nice 99%

Use nova or apex. For the holo theme found on all ICS and above phones. Apex has more themes. I personally like nova. I am using minimal miui icons.

I don't even think that LG that's leaked is going to be a Nexus, it will be a Google Experience device. Nexus program is looking like it is going to open up to all manufacturers and become more of a guideline/rule set, kind of like nVidia's Kai platform for tablets.

iphone 4s is only 50-100 (depending on your carrier) if you don't care about having the brand new iphone

I would only hop on a 4S if I could find it used for cheap (~$200). I'm not about to waste my upgrade on an old phone

For the past 2 years I've had my Evo 4G.

This Hero is super, SUPER slow. I have a basic, simple ROM on it and everything and it's still slow as shit. So I need to upgrade next month for sure.

Edit: Idk wtf is Sprint's problem but 3G isn't even available for the Hero anymore

updated my gs2 to 4.1.2..im on slimrom now. found this cool ass live wallpaper pack called "galaxy pack". pics dont do it justice, looks gorgeous in motion though. like if you swipe the screen, the camera pans with it and you can get different angles of the galaxy. really customizable too

very easy on the battery surprisingly if you set it right. i dont even notice the difference now that ive switched to it

ditto. I was reluctant at first but the play store really does have virtually everything the app store has.

I wish I had more friends with gs3s though. So I could use share shot, and s beam to take away the hassle of getting pictures from friends.

I finally got a smartphone a few weeks ago and ended up choosing the iPhone 5 solely for iMessage and group messaging since all of my friends have iPhones. But these are really dope layouts, kind of wish I would have just said fuck it and got the S3 or something. Sucks Apple is a bitch and won't let you customize.
