Ice Cream on Spice Mi300/Commtiva Variants – Gingerbread is not enough…

with 4 comments

<Update> Have you seen the Alpha build up and available at boston mania… we are all set and ready… Ice Cream is not far…

Long time since i came back with a post, here I am, with a great news to all Spice Mi300/Commtiva Z71 variant proud owners…. We might soon be hitting Ice Cream 🙂

For those who are on Cyanogenmod builds of Gingerbread should already be aware, there are no new nightly builds coming out… why not… we are on our way to Ice Cream [Android 4.0].

Concept Design - Depiction purpose

We are limited on usage of the powerful features the Ice cream offers as there is no front camera and not sure how far the build improves the camera quality… what can we expect then…. below are few visible changes that you can expect and these are specific to our handset though there are many more improvements in Ice Cream but might not be available to us…

Simple, Beautiful and Useful UI

Home Screen folders and Favorites tray

Improvements in notifications and call answer mechanism

Powerful voice input engine

Better Stability [stability as not in build but in performance… early versions obvious to hold bugs]

Better phone management features

True Multi-tasking

Unified communication design

Better email and browser experience

How soon can i expect the Ice Cream build…. this is one question that everyone of us have in mind. For now there is no predicted date that confirms this… but yes the work is in progress and none-the-less it is working harder and smarter to come as soon as possible… I am desperately looking forward to it and will update back as soon as something comes-up and request all the readers to keep your eyes open too…

Request all not to jump on any update that says it has Ice Cream for our handset… please read the features working and not working… does the build work and if not is there a way to roll back…. better lookout for Cyanogenmod guys as we did till now.

For now the details of Ice Cream feature can be had here;
